    Summary

    Expirience with the Rocky Mountain Slayer Carbon 70

    Expirience with the Slayer Carbon 70 2022 In terms of riding on very demanding single trails, the Enduro of Rocky Mountain is an absolute banger. No matter how rowdy the ride gets: when shredding the Slayer Carbon 70, the 63,2 degree head tube angle and the long wheelbase ensure a pretty chilled handling. The upright seating position gives the Rocky Mountain Slayer Carbon 70 a comfortable character. The frame is quite a good one. The Fully-chassis makes a very nice impression. On climbs, other bikes in the under 8000 Euro present a little better performance than the Rocky Mountain Fully. Especially for light riders under 70 kilos, the weight of this bike is enormous. With 16 kg, the ratio of rider to bike weight could be lighter. With the Slayer Carbon 70, the real fun starts at the peak of the mountain. Because in the downhill, the on very demanding single trails is better than the competitors in this price range. The guarantee promise of 5 years ensures trust.
