The 5.0 SLX version comes with the Shimano SLX 12 speed system, as the name suggests. The 12 shifting gears are sufficient enough for both climbing and downhill. The 150mm travel Rockshox 35 Gold fork feels very comfortable while treading whatever is in its way — stones, roots or big jumps. The Rockshox Delux Select + Rear Shock has an option for locking up during climbs and enough travel to smooth out downhill bumps. Thanks to the modern geometry with a lower center of gravity and short saddle tube with a 150mm travel KS Rage-i dropper post, you can choose the size of the bike by its length and not by the height of the seat tube. This guarantees and doubles the enjoyment of MTB riding. The 29” inch wheels with WTB STp i29 tubeless ready tires can be ridden without inner tubes for more comfort and traction on the forest paths.
Ronin is definitely a bike that does not adhere to the stereotype, does not like the beaten tracks, and its only master is the one who steps over the frame.
No matter if you are up in the mountains on a rough downhill tracks, alpine trails or just having fun on big jumps, the Ronin masters any kind of terrain. The bike is an excellent all-rounder: designed to be as versatile and potent on the climbs as well as on the descents.
