With its custom Lefty fork and fat-and-fast-rolling 650x42c tyres, Slate is a legit road machine with serious off-road chops. From pavement to gravel to singletrack, Slate rails where other road bikes fail.
A full-tilt road bike with legitimate off-road chops, the Slate brings a whole new dimension of hard-cornering, curb-hopping, trail-shredding fun to the concept of “road-riding”
» BIG TYRES+SMALL WHEELS=GOOD TIMES Massive 42c tyres on 650b wheels give you 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 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.
