Stanton Slackline 853 – Anyone got one?
Having difficulty in separating it from all the other ‘hardcore hardtail all mountain long travel’ frames currently on the market?
They look good, they dont look like any of the other ‘hardcore hardtail all mountain long travel’ frames I’ve seen. They have very short stays and top tubes, so are probably great for riding jumps and larking about on. But if you got the 18″ model then you could probably do some longer rides on it aswell.Posted 6 years ago
Quality. Whats a 456 carbon? Scott Scale? Santa Cruz V10?
They’re completely different frames!
C456 = 1500g. Dunno about the rest.
And I know that, cleverclogs, which is why I qualified my statement afterwards by asking about the weight of a BeFe, which was as near a comparison as I could think of!Posted 6 years ago
But they aren’t really all that different are they? All standard, double diamond steel frames built out of 853….. It’s only PURPOSE that differs. 😛
It makes sense to me, I posted something similar here

The Slackline is a multipurpose Allmountain Hardcore hardtail frame with a strong 4X/Slalom influence to its design. It is designed to reward style while riding hard in all conditions. The tubing used to make the Slackline was chosen for its manipulative properties and excellent vibration damping.
Directional flex control is key in the Slackline’s design as the frame utilises butting in specific places and carefully selected internal tubing diameters to offer a direct and controlled ride combined with mega strenth.
The snap, acceleration and berm hugging cornering comes from our low bottom bracket and short chain stays. Couple this with a tight, nimble geometry and slack angles; you have a versatile “bomb proof frame”.
I’m sorry…. but what a load of marketing bollocks. Quite amusing how much drivel will write about stuff these days…Posted 6 years ago
