Now for the moment you have all been waiting for...details on the slopestyle bike! "The Porter" is about as close to an exact replica to the complete bike that Eric Porter rides. We most all the same parts he uses on his own bike. Yes, it's expensive! But like good wine and fast cars, most of the finer things in life are expensive.

This bike rocks. The pics don't do it justice at all!

I'll caution ya'll that we ordered VERY limited quantities of these. If you want one, talk to your local dealer. We haven't released too much info on this bike yet, so they might look at you like they don't know what you mean. Just have them give us a call if they are confused.

Enjoy!

I like the way the bike looks. It looks like it can git-r-done!!! What is exactly a slope style bike? It looks like it might be a DJ with suspension. Is it okay for DH or XC? How much does it weigh? Help me out here!!!

JILL- I love what Haro offers in their bike line-up, but when are you guys going to offer a full suspension 29er? I just had to defect to another brand. Building up an Astrix Monk as an all mountain FS 29er. If Haro offered one I'm pretty sure I would have bought it or at the least highly considered it.

This bike was designed specifically for Porter and Phil Sundbaum to compete on at slopestyle events like Crankworx, etc. It's sort of like a full-suspension DJ bike that's also suitable for dual slalom/4X and stuff like that. It would also be a good bike for DH on courses that aren't super technical and/or have a lot of jumps on them (like Sea Otter). Not a XC bike...geometry is all wrong for that.
