    Its going to be polarizing... Its nothing like the current Slayer other than the name... Horizontal Shock for one. 180mm travel.

    As for the 2020 slayer.... the 29er version will probably not be 180mm unlike what the previous poster has said. Otherwise I wouldn't say it's polarizing, more like the logical progression from the current one. Visually different maybe, but the two/suspension will make sense!

    Polarizing amongst current slayer owners I would say. Its a new look. Im not a fan...

    That makes sense. I did call Cane Creek to inquire about the Inline, and they said the Inline does not come in the length needed for the Slayer, and that the DB Coil CS would be a better choice over the Inline. I know the Fox DHX2 is a popular coil for the Slayer as well. Just trying to cover all the bases before I pull the trigger on a coil shock.

    I'd guess late July into August we will learn more about it. That's when Rocky tends to release their brand new stuff. I don't want to make anyone break embargoes on it. I'm excited to see what it's like, but I'll be patient.

    We might see something sooner, I have heard nothing official but I think we might see something coinciding with bike parks opening... I can't imagine they'll launch their season without bikes as they got rid of all of their maidens last year AFAIK.

    Catalouge photo I saw looked like they have gone back to the reddish/grey colorway which was probably the least favourite of all the 17+ colors, horizontal mounted shock under the top tube and some weird looking brace behind the headtube that completley ruins the clean lines the current model is renowned for. Guess we'll see when its officially released.

    Looks aside I'm not a fan of the current Slayer, yeah it looks great and is a good park bike but I feel like there's faster bikes. If they make it uglier but faster I'm keen, less antisquat too please.
