At the heart of it all is the podium-climbing C15 super-light carbon frame, with ridiculously clean lines, stealthy internal cable routing, ride-tuned chainstays, and a carbon 142x12 rear dropout. The oversized tapered head tube meets the top tube and downtube in a massive junction to keep the front end stiff for precise steering control. The uniquely shaped, oversized downtube amplifies torsional stiffness and maximizes power transfer. The SLM features an Oval Concepts M600 series aluminum crank with a 35mm spindle -- the largest diameter BB spindle in the industry -- that offers the optimum combination of light weight and stiffness to make every pedal rotation count; the crank also features Praxis Works aluminum, cold-forged chainrings that offer more shifting options and are lighter and stronger than CNC'd chainrings. Finally, a 142 x 12mm rear thru axle securely joins the hub to the frame, strengthening lateral stiffness in the rear triangle for improved pedaling efficiency.
A SRAM XO1 11-speed drivetrain is perfect for nearly any XC course. A 32-tooth Oval Concepts crank is matched to a 10/42 SRAM XG-1195 11-speed cassette to conquer brutal climbs and harrowing descents alike. Finally, a blisteringly-quick set of 27.5" DT Swiss X1700 Spline Two wheels with Schwalbe Thunder Burt tubeless ready tires make short work of tight and twisty singletrack.
