The answer to the dilemma of wanting a long travel bike, but being able to climb well is the Slayer. Rocky Mountain realizes that in order to go down- hill you must either climb to the top of the mountain or walk your bike to the top. Therefore, they have created a bike that will climb like a XC bike, but still embodies all mountain riding capabilities.
Rocky Mountain has pioneered StraightUp geometry. They have perfected the seat position to put your weight over your pedals for maximum pedal efficiency. Not only will you ride more efficiently, it will take the pressure off of your lower back.

The Slayer series also has the SmoothLink suspension design. This groundbreaking suspension design features minimal pedal bob so you get a smoother pedal stroke, especially while climbing. By placing the lower pivot 10mm above the rear axle, the average chain torque line stays parallel to the lower link, which eliminates the pedal bob.
A notable change over the last couple years to the Slayer series is the ABC (angular bushing concept) pivots. ABC pivots consist of an angular contact polymer bushing which rotates on a tapered alloy pivot. The pivoting system is lighter, more durable, and laterally stiffer than cartridge bearings. ABC pivots are up to 105% stiffer than a sealed cartridge bearing.

Specifications:

  • FORM 7005 series custom hydroformed alloy, with StraightUp geometry, ABC pivots, tapered head tube, and ISCG 03 Tabs
  • Fox RP23 XV custom valved rear shock, SmoothLink design 165mm of travel, rebound/ 3 position ProPedal adjustment
