Introducing "The Porter"...

Based on all the inquiries we're getting about this bike, we're re-posting the sneak peek. Can't stress how important it will be to talk to your local shop if you want one of these...just a small handful will be produced!


Now for the moment you have all been waiting for...details on the slopestyle bike! "The Porter" is about as close to an exact replica to the complete bike that Eric Porter rides. We most all the same parts he uses on his own bike. Yes, it's expensive! But like good wine and fast cars, most of the finer things in life are expensive.


This bike rocks. The pics don't do it justice at all!

I'll caution ya'll that we ordered VERY limited quantities of these. If you want one, talk to your local dealer. These are part of our 2010 line, so we'll be getting them into stock in the Fall.

Enjoy!

Is this a "Shift in Wolf's clothing"? :)

Not so much. Looks a lot like it (there's only so many ways you can build a single pivot frame) but the geometry and tubing are different from the Shift.

i am riding an '06 shift r5 with x-9 front to back, stock shock and stock fork. a 230mm front rotor and 160 in the rear. damn i love that beast. it climbs with me and doesnt wear me out, it drops in on everything and has yet to buck me off. hmmmmm i like the paint scheme some on your new ride. so i think i will stick with my ride for now, thank you HARO.

ps what do you think about a sticker or hat or sweatshirt that says 'my truck is a HARO' ?
