The Slackline is a multipurpose Allmountain Hardcore hardtail frame with a strong 4X/Slalom influence to its design.

Dan Stanton from www.stantonbikes.com has just sent over a vid and info about his new hardtail, the Slackline, which looks like a peach of a machine.

We'll be reviewing the Slackline in a future issue of Dirt, so stay tuned for that beauty, in the mean time read on:

It is designed to reward style while riding hard in all conditions. The tubing used to make the Slackline was chosen for its manipulative properties and excellent vibration damping. Directional flex control is key in the Slackline's design as the frame utilises butting in specific places and carefully selected internal tubing diameters to offer a direct and controlled ride combined with mega strength. The snap, acceleration and berm hugging cornering comes from our low bottom bracket and short chain stays. Couple this with a tight, nimble geometry and slack angles; you have a versatile “bomb proof frame".
