A freeride bike is a bike that combines elements of downhill, trail, and enduro bikes.
A 170mm travel bike is usually the go-to for freeride. So, bigger and burlier thanan enduro bike, but slightly less travel and lighter than a dedicated downhill bike.
The reason is that freeride bikes are built to be solid bike park bikes, but are also meant to be more pedalable than downhill bikes. You might not crush any uphill records on a freeride bike, but you can crawl up and shred down.
BALANCED TRAIL BRUTALITY
Smash every trail in total confidence. The Slayer was right there at the start of the freeride movement, and that “heritage-of-send” lives on. Longer and slacker than ever, expect villainous levels of confidence when ripping big mountain trails or devouring the park.
