BIG TYRES ON SMALL WHEELS - 650BX42C
The idea for Slate started with the realization that 650b road wheels with massive 42c tyres offer the same rollout (outer diameter) as a 700x22c wheel/tyre combo. That means we could get the unreal cornering grip and float of big tyres, with proper road bike speed and crazy-good handling.
SLATE'S "FULL FUN" GEOMETRY
Since we didn't have to compromise the Slate's geo around big tyres on big wheels, we were free to optimize it to maximize fun in all conditions. Short chainstays keep things lively and agile, while a longer front-centre and slacker head angle provide the stability needed for rough roads and offroad excursions. Rider position fits right between the full aggressiveness of Elite Race and the more upright Endurance.
MAGIC CARPET COMFORT
With the big-volume tyres and plush SAVE PLUS rear triangle, the Slate is magically smooth over bumps and chatter.
SAVE PLUS MICRO-SUSPENSION SYSTEM
The dramatic shaping of the seat stays and chainstays on the Slate provide a great balance of big bump-eating capability and rock solid rigidity. Just what you need when blasting down rocky trails or potholed streets.
DROPPER POST COMPATIBLE
Nothing inspires confidence like a dropper post, and with 27.2mm diameter posts and internal dropper routing, it's an easy upgrade to make.
