Your speed shouldn't be determined by the size of your checking account—this is the logic behind the Demo 8 27.5. It's a speed-and-steeze wagon equipped with a chassis that's proven itself the world over, and we've decked out with a cost-effective, thoroughly kick-ass component mix.
PROVEN ON THE TOUGHEST TRACKS
When you're sending it, you need confidence in your bike. No material has earned its keep on the downhill circuit like our M5 aluminum. The stuff is stiff, lightweight, and strong as hell. Same goes for the burly 1.5-inch forged head tube and iconic, single-sided seat mast design.
BUILT TO LAST. BUILT TO BE FAST.
The Demo 8 wants to be pushed harder and faster—dollar signs be damned. You get 200mm of front and rear suspension via a RockShox BoXXer Select 27.5 and a custom-tuned FOX VAN RC. Other highpoints include SRAM's powerful Guide RE brakes and a durable, 1X SRAM drivetrain.
MASSIVE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
• The same iconic Demo frame has carried countless riders to podiums the world over.
• RockShox BoXXer Select RC fork and FOX VAN RC rear shock dish out 200mm of squish.
