Demo 8 Alloy Frame
Downhill racing requires complete and utter faith in your equipment, and we understand your desire to cherry pick and fine-tune every last component of your dream downhill rig. That's why we offer our legendary Demo 8 as a frameset. It's constructed from our M5 aluminum. And while the reasons for this are stacking, it all comes down to stiffness, light overall weight, and strength. Not only that, but it also features a 1.5-inch forged head tube to enhance most of these qualities. As for the ride, the Demo 8 is built off of our S3 Geometry and an asymmetric frame design, ensuring a plenty of frame access, a roomy top tube for added control, ultra-short, nimble chainstays, a low bottom bracket that keeps you feeling planted, and a slack front end that provides the utmost in responsive handling at speed. For suspension, this Demo features 200mm of travel delivered via a game changing custom Öhlins rear shock. Altogether, it's a blank canvas of performance. Build it how you want it, and race it like you mean it.
- M5 alloy construction works in tandem with our S3 Geometry, an asymmetric frame design, and a 1.5” forged head tube to create the ultimate race machine. The design is relatively compact in order increase maneuverability and responsiveness, while the 200mm of travel at the rear makes the bike capable of taking on the biggest of hits in stride. And to fill out all of the details that make the difference on race day, we’ve included an ISCG ‘05 mount for chain guides and a rear derailleur protector to keep you shifting smoothly through rock gardens and unexpected strikes.
- Custom Öhlins rear shock delivers unparalleled DH performance. It offers high/low speed compression adjust that stands independent of the rebound adjust, enabling you to fine-tune the shock for the track at hand. It’s 200mm of coil-sprung travel that stands without rival, and you won’t find it anywhere else.
- Thomson alloy seatpost features one of the most durable constructions out there, without coming at the expense of a high overall weight.
