First Look: 2017 Rocky Mountain Slayer 0

It's back! Following a short hiatus, Rocky Mountain is thrilled to show off the all-new Slayer. With a nod to the fundamentals, the new breed sports a full carbon frame, 165mm of rear travel, ultra-slack geometry, unique blind pivots, and looks that could kill. This bike will have you cranking the volume as you realize it's unforgiving ability to thrash turns, embrace chaos, and melt faces.
