Knolly Delirium Jenson SLX Bike
Freeride? Slopestyle? Shuttle DH? Park? Whatever you want to call it, the Knolly Delirium employs 27.5" wheels, 170mm of smooth travel and a bombproof aluminum frame to be whatever you want it be.
You can say the Knolly Delirium has a bit of a commitment issue. You can say its wishy washy, but in a good way. Designed and built upon the notion, "versatility," this big-mountain monster has always been known to elude industry labels. It has successfully bridged the gap between unyielding tough guy and playful child through its 27.5 wheel size, Knolly's own Fourby4 suspension system, a hydro-formed from 6066 frame, and 170mm of trail-taming travel. Once you've put the Delirium through the ringer and reviewed the scouting notes, it can be tweaked and configure in various ways, including its adjustable geometry, dual crown fork compatibility, massive tire clearance, and internal & external cable routing.
The stunningly constructed and meticulously hydroformed 6066 aluminum frame has been adorned with a component set aimed at high performance and durability by yours truly, JensonUSA. The Jenson SLX build features Shimano 1 x 11 SLX drivetrain components, Race Face Aeffect cranks and an SLX hydraulic disc brake set. The Fox Float Factory Fork brings massive hit compliance for the front end and the insanely nice Fox Float X2 helps with the 170mm of travel in the rear. Tubeless compatible Race Face Aeffect wheels are wrapped in Schalbe Hans Dampf rubber and the cockpit features a Race Face Evolve seatpost, Chromag Ranger stem and a 780mm wide Chromag Fubar handlbar.

I will say, the SLX components aren't exactly what I'd like, and I will definitely be getting a dropper post soon, but honestly, what bike REALLY feels good before you've replaced a couple pieces and personalized it a bit. All in all, great bike, ESPECIALLY at the discounted price.
The SLX version does not have a dropper post, which surprised me. If I had paid more than 6k for this bike, I'd be pretty irritated at having to spend another 2-3 hundred on a dropper. Who's going to ride a DH/enduro bike with a fixed seatpost?
Quibbles aside, though, the geometry of this thing is incredible and it's a really, really fun bike.
