Details

Cassidy C SLX gives you confidence in your lines. The carbon frame tracks straight through rock gardens and over obstacles, supported by RockShox's Super Deluxe Select+ shock and ZEB Select+ RC fork—good for 165 mm rear and 180 mm front travel. The geometry is long, low, and slack enough to tame the steepest descents, but still lets you earn your turns on the climb back up. Our Split Pivot suspension design is compliant and efficient, promising predictable braking and excellent traction.

On-bike cargo features include a padded tube strap spot, top tube mount, and full-size bottle clearance for longer rides and less weight in your pack (if you need one at all). The Shimano SLX 1 x 12 groupset is renowned for its reliable performance. Ready to rip?

KEY FEATURES:

SPLIT PIVOT® REAR SUSPENSION SYSTEM:
Split Pivot provides a host of impressive suspension characteristics because the system isolates pedaling forces and braking forces from each other, allowing us to tune and optimize the bike for both independently. The concentric rear axle pivot, in conjunction with precise wheel link, brake link, and control link placement, results in: Excellent bump compliance / Incredible pedaling efficiency / Smooth and predictable braking throughout travel / Maximum traction.

SPLIT PIVOT +
Split Pivot + is our suspension development philosophy that allows riders to swap suspension travel within a single chassis.

Flip Chip 2.0
Integrated into the shock link mount, Flip Chip 2.0 allows simple, quick adjustments to bottom bracket height and head tube angle to account for the rider’s personal preference, terrain, or wheel size and tire diameter.

MULLET BUILD COMPATIBILITY
Mullet build compatibility lets riders run a 29" wheel in the front and a 27.5" wheel in the back with minimal impacts to geometry.
