Manufacturer Description

Blackthorn Carbon SLX is our 29er carbon all-mountain bike with the versatility to take on any trail. With progressive geometry, a lightweight carbon frame, 140 mm of rear travel and a 160 mm fork, you’re ready for jump lines, drops, rock gardens, and anything else the mountain can throw at you. Blackthorn’s Split Pivot suspension system offers excellent pedaling efficiency and is fully active during braking, resulting in a well-balanced bike that both climbs and descends exceptionally well. Shimano’s SLX drivetrain and four-piston brakes keep you in control when Blackthorn prompts you to push your limits.
