Rocky Mountain Slayer SXC 30 All Mountain Full Suspension Pro Review

Rocky has a fair amount of bike design experience and the Slayer SXC is not new so I didn’t expect to be surprised. Although it has evolved somewhat, the SXC has existed in this current design incarnation since 2006. It’s basically a single pivot design employing Rocky’s LC2R (Low Centre Counter Rotating) suspension technology. Technology bafflegab aside this technology is meant to result in a very plush ride with it’s strength being highly tuneable suspension. Continue reading →

Date Reviewed: February 10, 2009

Strengths:    If left stock can be used for enduro racing or 24 hr races. Frame is very versatile and can take a series of upgrades tjat you want. The rear tire is stuck to the ground if you want it and up in tje air when you make it! The plain white color is just better than those 2 tone ones.

Weaknesses:    Probably the stock components of the 30 is a tad bit expensive.

Bottom Line:   
The slayer sxc line is really a good line of bikes! RMB has designed a very reliable machine. It climbs very well (specially stock) and goes downhill with ease and with confidence.

If you're looking for a bike that will give you confidence, if you're
Looking to goa little up then go down with a mix of freeride, if you're looking for a botique bike thats not so botique in price then the slayer sxc30 is for you my friend!!!
