Rocky Mountain Bicycles humbly began in the basement of a Vancouver British Columbia bike shop, in 1981. The employees first imported bikes to sell to their customers. Later, they began manufacturing and importing frames to their exact specifications. Rocky Mountain now produces mountain bikes, road bikes, and urban bicycles. The company has come quite a ways from their modest beginning; however, their core values have never wavered. Rocky Mountain Bicycles is just as sought after now as they were in 1981.
The Rocky Mountain Slayer SS (Slope Style) was designed for mountain biking, dirt- jumping, and slope style riding. The Slayer SS features more research and development than any other bike in Rocky Mountain Bicycle’s history. The short chainstays allow flickability, while the long top tube allows you to throw the bars. The Slayer SS features Rocky Mountain’s SmoothLink suspension. SmoothLink suspension has minimal pedal feedback so you get a smoother pedal stroke, especially on uphill climbs. Rocky Mountain placed the rear pivot above the rear hub axle, which keeps the average chain torque line parallel to the lower link, which helps to eliminate pedal- bob.
Alongside the perfected geometry, the Rocky Mountain Slayer SS features excellent components that are budget friendly. The Manitou Circus Expert is rock solid and will provide plenty of assurance that the front end is stiff. Rocky Mountain paired the Manitou Circus with the RockShox Monarch R rear shock. The RockShox Monarch R is a no- nonsense rear shock. Adjust the rebound to the terrain you’re riding, and get going. The 100mm rear travel will soak up the big hits and take the edge off should you accidently case a jump. Avid Elixir 1 brakes bring the bike to a complete stop, once you’ve had enough fun for the day. The SRAM X.5 shifters harmoniously work with the SRAM X.5 9 speed rear derailleur. The Truvativ Ruktion with E*Thirteen LS1+ guide were built to take a beating.
If you’re itching to hit the jumps, the Rocky Mountain Slayer SS is the bike to ride. The finely tuned geometry, quality components, and expert craftsmanship set Rocky Mountain apart from many competitors.

FREE PROFESSIONAL ASSEMBLY
Each Rocky Mountain complete bike includes free professional assembly by Jenson USA. Prior to shipping your bike, we will completely build and tune it, just as we would for an in-store purchase. Then, we'll partially disassemble and carefully pack your bike for shipping. Please allow 3 business days for the bike build process prior to shipment.
When your bike arrives, it will take about 30 minutes to unpack and perform basic re-assembly tasks (such as installing the front wheel and seatpost) using common hand tools. Jenson USA has created a helpful video (below) to guide you through this process. Stuck? Please call us at (888) 880-3811 and we’ll be happy to help.
