HOME > BIKES > MOUNTAIN > 2018 DEMO 8 I CARBON

Rolling over ruts, roots and insane rock gardens and flying over crazy drops at near uncontrollable speeds, downhill racing is a truly exciting beast meaning you need to have as much confidence in your bike as yourself. The Demo 8 I Carbon is just the bike to get you from top to bottom as fast as possible without a second's hesitation.

If you want a lightweight frame with the stiffness and strength for downhill, a carbon fibre frame is unbeatable and that's why we used FACT 10m, some of our highest-grade carbon, to build the frame on this version of the Demo 8 I.

The S3 650b geometry means a roomy top tube, nimble ultra-short chainstays, a low bottom bracket, and a slack front end which all adds up to extra control, ultra-responsive handling at speed and a real feeling of being properly planted.

200mm of suspension at the back controlled by the revolutionary hlins rear shock is complemented by 200mm up front via a RockShox BoXXer RC 650b. Teamed together they mean you can confidently fly over any terrain in your path.

Topping it all off with a build kit made up of powerful and durable one-by drivetrain and Guide R brakes, from SRAM, plus our own legendary Butcher & Slaughter DH tyres, you'll start to see why the Demo 8 has won so many races at the highest level.

  • The frame features a full FACT 10m carbon fiber 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 maneuverability and responsiveness, while the 200mm of travel at the rear makes the bike capable of taking on the biggest of hits in stride.
  • RockShox BoXXer RC 27.5 fork is purposefully designed for the most demanding terrain on earth. With 200mm of travel, Motion Control IS damping for maximum efficiency, and Power Buldge reinforced lower legs that allow oversized bushings for incredible stiffness, it'll leave you with nothing but confidence.
  • The clutched SRAM GX rear derailleur all but eliminates dropped chains, so you're able to rail through rock gardens while still being able to sprint out of them.
