For Sam Hill, Brendan Fairclough, and every aspiring downhill racer, the mountain is at its best when every trail points straight down. Built to be the fastest, most bomb-proof, technologically sound, and (dare we say?) sexiest DH bike, the Demo fearlessly rips the toughest terrain on earth.
WHAT All-new M5 alloy frame with 12 x 150mm
rear end, fewer sharp edges/corners, and
a sleeker finish.
WHY Minimizes mud and debris build-up to
keep weight low and allow the rider to
slip through tight spaces unfettered.
HOW Responding to input from Sam, Brendan,
and the Monster Energy mechanics, we
softened corners that collected debris
and made the frame sleeker to limit any
narrow spaces that might collect mud. 1.Low BB height for low center
of gravity and best handling
in rough and fast terrain
2.Short chainstays for tight handling
and best maneuverability
3.New rear-end layout is more compact
to keep shock and center of gravity low
4.Shock size = 9.5 x 3
5.150 x 12mm is strong, stiff,
and compatible with most
aftermarket DH hubs
6.Press-fit 30 BB
7.Super low standover height for lower
center of gravity and better clearance
FSR Suspension with
WHAT Our proprietary FSR suspension, specially
tuned for the rigors of DH racing with an
WHY Lightens the already svelte Demo by
making the rear end more compact
and sleek, while lowering the center of
gravity. This makes the bike handle even
better than before without sacrificing our
legendary FSR suspension performance.
HOW The sub-seatstay allows us to drive the
shock off the chainstays, as opposed to
the seatstay, which effectively lowers the
center of gravity.
WHAT The strongest and lightest components
available, expressly designed for the
WHY Makes the Demo as strong and light as
possible, without sacrificing compatibility
with industry-standard interfaces (so
aftermarket components will still fit). Helps
riders maximize attainable speeds, while
considerably reducing risk.
HOW Working closely with the Monster Energy
team and various manufacturers allows
us to dial the spec to work in perfect
concert with the Demo platform. We
test the components at every stage of
development and make adjustments
to elicit customized performance
from the wheels, crankset, etc.
