Darren Berrecloth is a freeride and slopestyle legend. Darren walked us through his 2011 Specialized SX showing us some of his part choices and tweaks. Check inside for photos and full video.
Darren’s Specialized SX is mostly a stock bike you can buy right off the shelves with only a few tweaks done to it for his liking.

Darren likes to run the carbon Easton Monkeylite DH handlebars to help dampen harsh landings.

Darren runs a single speed setup for slopestyle events. He uses the lightweight Dura-Ace derailleur as a chain tensioner. Darren has also modified his Saint crank setup with a plastic sleeve around the spindle so his cranks don’t spin out of control during tricks.
