Fun is the only mission.

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.

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

Technologies

Left Oliver - Developed for the Slate, the Oliver delivers 0mm of bob-free travel and pinpoint handling. It’s the most capable front suspension system on the road.

Save Plus Micro-Suspension - Dramatically shaped seat stays and chain stays flex to absorb shock and vibration for comfort and control.

Syntace 142X12 Rear Thru-Axle - Increased sti.

Braze-On Disc Caliper Mount - Patent-pending design is created for new low-profile, flat-mount disc brakes. Ultra light. Incredibly strong.

650B X 42C Wheels - With nearly the same outside diameter as traditional 700cx23c road wheels, the Slate’s 650bx42c wheel/tire combo delivers the full-on speed and snappy handling of a road bike, but with the unreal cornering grip and float of big tires.
Features

Big Tires+Small Wheels=good Times - Massive 42c tires 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.

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

Magic Carpet Comfort - With the big-volume tires, plush SAVE PLUS rear triangle, and Lefty Oliver suspension fork, the Slate is magically smooth over bumps and chatter.

Surprisingly Light, Surprisingly Fast - 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.
