Expanding our category defying high pivot design from the druid and applying it to a platform for the extremes. A DH bike in all but the small print, ready for the rowdiest back-country lines, the steepest race stages and the shadiest gaps in the bike park. Bring the big guns, bring the dreadnought and fear nothing.
Built from the same all-carbon chassis seen throughout the range, but in a more wallet-friendly configuration, the no-compromise Dreadnought SLX packs enough firepower to pummel the opposition into retreat.
Upfront, the 170mm travel, Charger 2.1 equipped RockShox Zeb Select + fork is paired to perfection by a custom-tuned Fox X2 shock. The suspension is amplified further by the Trifecta system, decimating square edge hits for breakfast, all thanks to its 100% rearward wheel path, while simultaneously eliminating unwanted drivetrain forces with ease.
Delivering a consistent ride experience across the size spectrum and an unrivalled level of balance and composure, our One Ride geometry helps to differentiate the Dreadnought even further from the competition. A bike that likes to play, but not by the rules, the Dreadnought SLX thrives in environments once the reserve of downhill thoroughbreds.
