A full-tilt road bike with legitimate off-road chops, Slate brings a whole new dimension of hard-cornering, curb-hopping, trail-shredding fun to the concept of “road-riding”. The SmartForm aluminum frame features SAVE Plus micro-suspension so you can explore the road less traveled, and a Lefty Oliver Carbon fork provides 30mm of travel to smooth out that untamed route. Wide, 650b WTB rims and 42mm WTB Resolute tires are primed for adventure, offering loads of traction with road bike quickness. Float over potholes, boost off of curbs, rail down trails, or just bring a little excitement to the next group ride. On Slate, exploration is the only mission. With a precise-shifting SRAM Force 1 drivetrain and smooth, powerful Force hydraulic brakes, you'll have control and proper gearing no matter where the ride takes you. And, a supportive Fabric Scoop saddle will keep you comfortable for hours in the saddle.
