Your speed shouldn’t be determined by the size of your checking account - this is the logic behind the Demo 8 27.5. It's a blue-collar speed-and-steeze wagon equipped with a chassis that’s proven itself the world over and we’ve decked out with a cost-effective thoroughly kick-ass component mix.

When sending it full-gas down the trail you need confidence that your bike is going to perform like it should and no material has earned its keep on the downhill circuit like our M5 aluminium. This grade of aluminium has a whole lot going for it. The stuff is stiff lightweight and strong as hell. Highlights on the Demo 8 also include a burly 1.5-inch forged head tube and with its distinctive single-sided seat mast it has plenty of access to the bike’s custom-tuned FOX VAN RC shock.

As for the ride the Demo 8 pairs our S3 Geometry with a roomy top tube for added control ultra-short and nimble chainstays a low bottom bracket that keeps you feeling planted and a slack front-end that feels absolutely dialed at high speeds.

The Demo 8 features 200mm of front suspension via a RockShox BoXXer RC 27.5 and 200mm of rear travel courtesy of the aforementioned custom-tuned FOX VAN RC. Together the suspension combo ensures that you'll be able to rocket over any terrain with confidence. And when you add in a build kit that includes SRAM's powerful Guide RS brakes a durable one-by SRAM drivetrain and our legendary Butcher and Slaughter DH tyres you get a bike that wants nothing more than to be pushed harder and faster - dollar signs be damned.
