​If you have to ask why they built it, it's probably not for you...but for the rest of you, if a more forgiving dirt jumper sounds like a cool idea, the V-Slope is worth a closer look. Short, maneuverable, yet with 3.4" of rear travel to help take the sting out of your not-quite-on-the-money landings, it was designed to give slopestyle competitors an edge on bigger courses without straying too far from the feel and the performance of the classic hardtail.

Here is what Morpheus themselves had to say about the new bike: "It is easy to be so close to something great; without being able to see it clearly. This may have been the case when we asked our riders to investigate what they needed in a slope style bike to be competitive and feel confident on. Most of the feedback was related to adjustments that they were being requesting to our then current slope bike; the Skyla. At a certain moment in time management had to step back and say "Guys, I think we are looking toward the wrong bike for inspiration." Once the focus was shifted toward our hardtail, the Vimana. It became clear the next slope style bike would be based around that platform. Now, after two full successful seasons on the world tour, we are in stock with a production unit that is nearly as compact the award winning Vimana."
