Product Description

Slate is the bike you never knew you always wanted.  It's a full-tilt road bike with legit off-road chops. It's a drop-bar bike with a Lefty fork. It's got massive tires, yet has road bike quickness. Float over potholes, boost off of curbs, rail down trails or just bring a little excitement to the next group ride. On Slate, fun is the only mission.

Features: A full-tilt road bike with legitimate off-road chops, the Slate brings a whole new dimension of hard-cornering, curb-hopping, trail-shredding fun to the concept of "road-riding".


Massive 42c tyres on 650b wheels give you the the same roll-out diameter as a 700x23c wheel for proper road bike speed, but with unreal cornering grip, traction and comfort.


Short chainstays give Slate snappy quickness, while a slack head angle and long front-centre keep things stable for off-road excursions.


With the big-volume tyres,  plush SAVE PLUS (+) rear triangle, and Lefty Oliver suspension fork, the Slate is magically smooth over bumps and chatter.


Despite its burly look, Slate weighs less than a kilo more than comparable road bikes and it carries speed like a traditional (but bizarrely smooth) road bike.
