Let's not kid ourselves—downhill is all about speed.
And when it comes to squeezing every last ounce of fast out of a track, your machine needs to be just as fine-tuned as your skills. That's why we offer our legendary, World-Cup-proven S-Works Demo 8 FSR as a frameset. It's constructed from our finest carbon fibre, FACT 11m, for unparalleled stiffness and strength. Meanwhile, it's been built aboard our ultra-capable S3 650b Geometry to ensure 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 gives 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 pure performance and potential speed. Build it how you want it, and race it like you mean it.
- The frame features a full FACT 11m carbon fibre construction for low weight and heightened levels of strength and stiffness, which is amplified by its asymmetrical frame design that still leaves plenty of access. This has also been paired with our proven S3 Geometry that increases manoeuvrability and responsiveness, while the 200mm of travel at the rear makes the bike capable of taking on the biggest of hits in stride.
- 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 coil-sprung travel that stands without rival, and you won't find anywhere else.
- Thomson alloy seatpost features one of the most durable constructions out there, without coming at the expense of a high overall weight.
