Description

FUN IS THE ONLY MISSION

Slate is the bike you never knew you always wanted. It’s a full-tilt road bike with legit o -road chops. It’s a drop-bar bike with a Lefty fork. It’s got massive tyres, yet has road bike quickness. Float over potholes, boost o of curbs, rail down trails or just bring a little excitement to the next group ride. On Slate, fun is the only mission.

 

TO SUM IT UP: The Slate brings a whole new dimesion of hard-cornering, curb-hopping, trail-shredding fun to the concept of “road-riding”.

 

KEY SELLING POINTS:

  • BIG TYRES + SMALL WHEELS = GOOD TIMES Massive 42c tyres on 650b wheels give you the the same roll-out diameter as a 700x23c wheel for proper road bike speed, but with unreal cornering grip, traction and comfort.
  • “FULL FUN” GEOMETRY Short chainstays give Slate snappy quickness, while a slack head angle and long front-centre keep things stable for off -road excursions.
  • MAGIC CARPET COMFORT With the big-volume tyres, plush SAVE PLUS (+) rear triangle, and Lefty Oliver suspension fork, the Slate is magically smooth over bumps and chatter
  • SURPRISINGLY LIGHT, SURPRISINGLY FAST Despite its burly look, Slate weighs less than a kilo more than comparable road bikes and it carries speed like a traditional (but bizarrely smooth) road bike.
 
RIDER PROFILE: Roadies looking for a new thrill. MTB’ers or actionsports enthusiasts looking for a more open defi nition of “road riding”. Highly skilled riders looking for new limits to push. Highly unskilled riders looking to build skills without consequences.
 
RIDER POSITION: A low and efficient traditional road bike position with a touch of upright comfort.
 
 
1 | LEFTY OLIVER Developed for the Slate, the Oliver delivers 30mm of bob-free travel and pinpoint handling. It’s the most capable front suspension system on the road.
 
2 | SAVE PLUS (+) MICRO-SUSPENSION Dramatically shaped seat stays and chain stays fl ex to absorb shock and vibration for comfort and control.
 
3 | SYNTACE 142X12 REAR THRU-AXLE Increased stiff ness, strength and long-term durability
 
4 | BRAZE-ON DISC CALIPER MOUNT Patent-pending design is created for new low-profi le, fl at-mount disc brakes. Ultra light. Incredibly strong.
 
5 | 650BX42C WHEELS With nearly the same outside diameter as traditional 700cx23c road wheels, the Slate’s 650bx42c wheel/tyre combo delivers the full-on speed and snappy handling of a road bike, but with the unreal cornering grip and fl oat of big tyres.
