Dramatically shaped seat stays and chain stays flex to absorb shock and vibration for comfort and control.

SYNTACE 142X12 REAR THRU-AXLE

Increased stiffness, strength and long-term durability.

BRAZE-ON DISC CALIPER MOUNT

BRAZE-ON DISC CALIPER MOUNT

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

650BX42C WHEELS

650BX42C 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.
