If you’re looking for a new mountain bike, it’s hard to go wrong with a bike from the prestigious brand Rocky Mountain, but why should you choose The Slayer Carbon 50? What makes the Rocky Mountain Slayer such a great choice?

3 Reasons To Choose The Slayer Carbon 50 From Rocky Mountain

Whilst the specifications of this bicycle speak for themselves; we understand that it can sometimes be difficult to decide between two or more bicycles. So here’s a quick list of three reasons why you should choose to cycle off-road on The Slayer Carbon 50 from Rocky Mountain.

  1. It’s Built To Be Aggressive; Ideal For Off-Road Challenges
    In many ways, the Slayer is a massive improvement from other existing mountain bikes on the market. Whilst many downhill bikes are designed to be dedicated racing bikes, The Slayer is instead built to aggressively tackle bike park laps, soaring up and down trails, shredding corners, hitting gaps; generally riding harder than you thought possible.

    The Slayer was introduced to the Rocky Mountain line-up shortly after the new millennium in 2001 and it’s rightfully become known as one of Rocky Mountain’s most renowned bicycles. For years the brand has built bicycles that help legendary level athletes achieve new personal bests and win competitions, so if you’re looking for an off-road bicycle to be your partner as you level up you skills and smash through the next challenges, The Slayer is sure to live up to your expectations.

    However, Rocky Mountain understands that every cyclist is different and has their own preferences when it comes to off-road cycling. With the RIDE-4 adjustment system, cyclists can quickly and easily fine-tune the geometry of their bicycle using Allen Keys; a common tool we all have in our cycling kit-bag.

  2. Enjoy Improvements To The Design
    True to its name, The Slayer is designed to be aggressive and it has specifications to match. With the reinforced front triangle, this bicycle is built to tackle a diverse range of cycling environments, from bike parks to big mountain climbing. Simply put, the improvements to the design allow this bike is shred.

    Simply put, this bike is incredible. It’s equipped with all the features you would expect from such a high quality off-road mountain bike from the well known Canadian mountain bike brand, Rocky Mountain. This awesome bike doesn’t just deliver on the promise to ride harder and grind through difficult terrain; it’s also designed to take abuse. Things such as wear and tear from riding trails, shuttle rub, and chairlift dings are of little concern thanks to the Form Alloy Rear Triangle. Additionally, as Rocky Mountain hail from Canada, they know a thing or two about muddy cycling conditions, just like we do in Britain; so thanks to the shielded bearings, you can tackle truly gnarly conditions without the fear of contamination when washing your bike at the wash station.

    It’s also worthwhile noting that all the frame sizes for The Slayer Carbon 50 are water bottle compatible. After all, it’s exceptionally important to stay hydrated whilst cycling, so a water bottle is an essential piece of kit for any off-road cyclist. Just make sure you have a high quality water bottle that keeps the dirt and mud out of your water.

  3. It’s A Bike From The Legendary Rocky Mountain Brand
    Purchasing a bike from a legendary and prestigious brand such as Rocky Mountain is more than just purchasing a bike with a popular brand logo. By choosing to purchase a bike from Rocky Mountain you’re not just getting a bicycle, you’re also getting peace of mind in the knowledge that you’re buying a high quality off-road bike that’s designed to hold speed whilst tacking rugged terrain on downward trails. After all, Rocky Mountain was founded by Grayson Bain, Jacob Heilbron, and Sam Mak in 1981 in the North Shore Vancouver Mountains; the Canada’s first World Cup was won by Alison Sydor on a Rocky Mountain bicycle. Simply put, they must be doing something right.

    Speaking of professional cyclists riding Rocky Mountain bicycles, when you buy a Rocky Mountain bike, you’re choosing professional level quality. You’re giving yourself a serious boost as you take your hobby to the next level and The Slayer Carbon 50 is exactly that. This bike can handle the toughest tracks and highest drops with ease; the design looks means and ferocious and the tech this bike is equipped with means you can tackle off-road cycling equally mean and ferocious.
