DMR Sled – A british all-mountain ripper

A new chapter for DMR

DMR used Core Bike to kickstart its 2017 with the brand new Sled enduro/all-mountain bike.

The Sled is two years in the making and is a radically different beast to DMR’s only current full suspension bike, the Bolt. With 160mm of travel and a totally unique linkage, there’s a lot of thought gone into this machine.

The suspension is driven by an Orbit Link. This is a slight twist on a virtual pivot system and uses a bottom linkage that will apparently reduce pedal feedback and keep the suspension active under braking.

It’s been designed by David Earle, who used to work for Santa Cruz and is a bit of an expert on the virtual pivot system, so you can be sure it will live up to the claims.

DMR’s reputation for producing robust hardware will no doubt remain intact with this bike as its aluminium construction looks solid and its bearings are weatherproofed – having Olly Wilkins’ design input can only help too.

With a 65.5° head angle and big reaches, this is a bike that justifies it’s long low and slack tag. Expect it to come alive when gravity takes over.

The bike is available in red or black with a frame and shock coming in at £1,600 or the full build pictured here (pedals excluded) at £3,500 ish. Frames will be available by the end of next week and full builds in April.
