  • Rear Travel: 165mm

Designed to lay waste to the world’s roughest trails, the Slayer is back as an all-carbon weapon. From the most aggressive Enduro World Series tracks to bike park laps and big mountain lines, its downhill-bike capability and pedaling responsiveness are matched with an uncanny ability to find and hold speed in rugged terrain. All killer, no filler.
“I’m super fired up that the Slayer is back,” says team rider Thomas Vanderham. “A few things really stood out to me through the development process—it pedals incredibly well, carries a ton of speed, and that extra bit of travel is awesome when you really want to rally! I see myself spending a ton of time on this bike.”

The new slayer features Ride 4.  The lower shock eyelet can be rotated to different corners to adjust the geometry.

The RIDE-4TM adjustment system allows riders to quickly fine-tune their geometry with a pair of Allen keys. Four configurations are possible thanks to one rotating chip. We tuned the Slayer’s RIDE-4TM system to adjust geometry while affecting the suspension curve as little as possible. This allows for subtle geometry changes with minimal effect on your shock tune.

“Growing up in Edmonton, the Rockies represented the epitome of rugged, large scale terrain. My trips to the Rockies have been few and far between since I left the prairies, so the opportunity to spend time in Fernie on the new Slayer was one I looked forward to all year. It did not disappoint—panoramic views, huge descents, impeccable trail building, and a tight knit mountain bike community.
This was my first time riding with Florian Nicolaï, and it’s easy to see what makes him one of the top EWS racers in the world. He’s got natural speed and an eye for ultra creative lines on the trail. We had an incredible time, and I hope that my next trip back to the Rockies isn’t too far away.” – Thomas Vanderham
