The DMR SLED is our new 27.5 160mm all-mountain ripper.
Angles which beg to descend and suspension that’s happy to climb.
Durability which gives confidence on the biggest of hucks with a weight that will allow the most epic of adventures.
The SLED captures the very essence of what Mountain biking is for us at DMR.
Put simply the SLED is our summary of MTB. It’s our tool for extracting fun out of every turn, speed from every feature, and laughter from every trail.

"The introduction of the SLED is an interesting move for a brand that, despite the introduction of the BOLT full suspension bike a number of years back, is still more well known for their steel hardtail frames and pedal designs.
To find out more about the development process of the DMR SLED we spoke with the team behind the bike."

Factory Jackson - CORE BIKE 2017
"This bangin’ new aluminium bike from DMR features 160mm travel, operated via a concentric pivot design called Orbit Link.
This keeps chain length consistent and eliminates dropped chains when you bottom out – something that always bugged DMR designer Olly Wilkins."

RIDE IT OUT - DMR SLED
"The DMR boys have been developing the SLED for 2 years and it’s fair to say they have gone long, slack and low with their 275 full susser..."
"...It’s based around DMR’s own virtual pivot ‘Orbit Link’ and they say this will offer superb climbing and descending with virtually no pedal feedback."
