Built from the same all-carbon chassis seen throughout the range, but in a more wallet-friendly configuration, the no-compromise Dreadnought SLX packs enough firepower to pummel the opposition into retreat. Upfront, the 170mm travel, Charger 2.1 equipped RockShox Zeb Select + fork is paired to perfection by a custom-tuned Fox X2 shock. The suspension is amplified further by the Trifecta system, decimating square edge hits for breakfast, all thanks to its 100% rearward wheel path, while simultaneously eliminating unwanted drivetrain forces with ease. Delivering a consistent ride experience across the size spectrum and an unrivalled level of balance and composure, our One Ride geometry helps to differentiate the Dreadnought even further from the competition. A bike that likes to play, but not by the rules, the Dreadnought SLX thrives in environments once the reserve of downhill thoroughbreds.

    Taking our proven High Pivot Trifecta suspension system and One Ride geometry and turning it up to eleven, the 154mm travel Dreadnought represents a bike for the risk-takers and senders out there.

Confident in the face of adversity, the Dreadnought is a bike quite unlike any other before it. Ziggy Link compatible, dual crown ready and open to interpretation, dream building a Dreadnought knows no bounds and neither does it.
