A 27.5 x 3 tire measures out to a 29 diameter. Combining it with a 50mm rim results in the ultimate combination of traction and roll-over without being too heavy, too bouncy, too tall or feeling just too lethargic on the trail.
CUSTOM FORGED CHAINSTAY BRIDGE
A custom forged chainstay bridge provides ample tire clearance with short chainstays and 2x drivetrain clearance.
BOOST 148 DROPOUT SPACING WITH OUTBOARD CHAIN LINE
A 12 x 148 rear hub with 3mm offset chainrings minimizes the chance of chain to tire contact with Dragonslayers short chainstays, â€œmid-fat tires and 2x drivetrain without compromising any pedaling efficiency to a wider q-factor
ADJUSTABLE SLIDING DROPOUTS
Our sliding dropout allows for 20mm of adjustment. Slide your rear wheel back to increase clearance for larger tires or remove all those gears and shifters and simply tension your chain for a quiet single speed ride!
Securing the rear wheel to the frame by threading it into the rear dropouts is not only safer, its stiffer. Increasing the rear axle diameter from 10mm to 12mm makes it only stiffer still. The rear wheel tracks directly in line with the frame, for more precise handling, so you can go faster with more confidence. The 148mm hub dropouts provide a self-centering feature for the rear wheel for faster, easier installation.
READY TO LOAD
The Dragonslayer frame features rear rack eyelets and three sets of cargo/water cage mounts for the option to load up all the gear you may possibly need out there. Full cable housing guides are used to ensure uninterrupted shifting performance when using a frame bag.
