2021 Rocky Mountain Slayer – Wade Simmons’ custom build

August 20, 2020

The Slayer was designed to be ridden fast, sent off huge hits, and take the abuse of a bike park lap after lap. The Godfather of Freeride, Wade Simmons, has been sending it aboard Rocky Mountain for nearly 30 years. Wade put freeriding on the map, and he’s still out there sending it aboard custom-built bikes.

Previous Feature The Jank Files - Season 2, Episode 1 It's hard to believe that the 2020 EWS season kicked off 344 days after the 2019 EWS season came to a close - but at this point we should probably be expecting the unexpected. It’s been a long year for everyone and the official enduro race season has only just begun.
Next Feature 2021 Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt – Jesse Munden’s custom build Quick and nimble, the Thunderbolt is all about being playful out there on the trail. What says that better than a kid who can nose bonk, spin, and jump just about anything. Jesse Munden is from Kamloops, British Columbia and at 14-years old is already making noise. He’s been on Rocky Mountain for the past few years and rides everything from a Slayer in the bike park to an Altitude Powerplay on the local trails – but the Thunderbolt is his favourite. The kid loves to jump, spin, and play – so we let him.
