Blackthorn SLX is our 29er all-mountain bike that’s perfect when you’re not sure what trail has in store, but you know it’s going to be steep, gnarly, loose, or all of the above. Progressive geometry comes to life in a 6061-T6 aluminum frame that’s built to last. The 140 mm rear shock and 160 mm fork make for a smooth, balanced, controlled ride when the trail is anything but. Our tried-and-true Split Pivot suspension system delivers superb small-bump compliance, remarkable climbing ability and limitless traction, even during braking. Shimano’s SLX drivetrain and four-piston brakes are exactly the copilots you want when navigating hair-raising rock gardens, high-speed descents, and stiff climbs. Blackthorn SLX is the tool of choice for all-mountain adventures.
