Description Technical Specs
 
Slate is the bike you never knew you always wanted. It’s a full-tilt road bike with legit off-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 off of curbs, rail down trails or just bring a little excitement to the next group ride. On Slate, fun is the only mission.

The Slate brings a whole new dimesion of hard-cornering, curb-hopping, trail-shredding fun to the concept of “road-riding”.
Features
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • SAVE PLUS (+) MICRO-SUSPENSION
  • Dramatically shaped seat stays and chain stays fl ex to absorb shock and vibration for comfort and control.
  • 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 float of big tyres.
  • SYNTACE 142X12 REAR THRU-AXLE
  • Increased stiffness, strength and long-term durability.
  • BRAZE-ON DISC CALIPER MOUNT
  • Patent-pending design is created for new low-profile, flat-mount disc brakes. Ultra light. Incredibly strong.
