Details

Spearfish SLX is part racer, part rowdy. A 6066-T6 aluminum frame holds up to trail abuse, frame bag strap wear, long miles, you name it. Our progressive XC geometry makes descending easy and climbing efficient. Rocky, technical trails are no sweat, thanks to the efficient pedaling, predictable braking, and traction of our Split Pivot suspension design. A 100 mm Fox Float DPS Performance shock and the 120 mm RockShox SID RL fork mellow out harsh trails to reduce fatigue on long rides.

Spearfish's on-bike cargo features, such as two-bottle capacity and top tube mounts, allow for longer rides between resupply points or just an extra lap before heading back to the car. Add Shimano's SLX 1 x 12 components to the mix, and you have an aluminum XC bike that you can rely on through tough racecourses and mellow loops alike.
