Expert Review

Specialized’s P.Slope is the weapon of choice for riders with a flair for showtime tricks from launching over huge jumps to sticking reverse wheelies and backflips. The A1 aluminum chassis utilizes a single-pivot swingarm in tandem with a RockShox Monarch shock to keep the bike stable and responsive on landings and hard-charging bike park antics. With super short chainstays and a low front end, riders get rock solid control while up in the air, and the stiff frame is a rocket under sprint speed with catlike reflexes for the technical stuff.

100mm of travel up front from the RockShox Pike fork takes the edge off trail chatter with sponge-like absorption of tough hits. Specialized employs Hayes Radar hydraulic brakes for instantaneous stopping and a SRAM Descendant crankset to ramp up to speed just as fast. The Slope takes a cue from BMX rigs with compact gearing ideally suited for the dirt, park ramps, and even the street. House brand Renegade Slopestyle tires grip everything in their path for no-worry traction, with double-wall alloy rims for silky rolling and durability.Rating: 4/5
