The all-mountain bike that proves aluminum isn’t dead. Retaining the same frame geometry and components that make the SLAMR 6 LC legendary, this whip handles it all. Efficient and lively on climbs, it provides outstanding composure on physical sections and on heavily-featured trails. Drop the post and get dialled. The slightly slack geometry allows an enduro-like position when getting fast and weird on technical terrain. Hitting the sweet spot between fast pace and total flickability, the 27.5in. wheelset features 12 and 15mm thru-axles for flex-free and straight-as-an-arrow tracking performance. On the fly suspension settings via the Fox Float front and rear suspension system lets you adapt to the trail situation at hand.
