Roadies looking for a new thrill should start with a clean slate.
A full tilt road bike with legitimate off-road chops, the Slate brings a whole new dimension of hard-cornering, trail-shredding fun to the concept of "road riding". Featuring 650b wheels with massive 42mm tires. The unreal cornering grip and float of big tires combined with great handling and proper road bike speed. The front fork is the Lefty Oliver. Developed for the Slate, the Oliver delivers 30mm of travel with road like feel. The most comfortable front suspension system on the road. Lastly the Save Plus micro suspension includes dramatically shaped seat and chain stays to absorb bumbs and deliver rock solid rigidity.
