Ryan Nyquist Masters The Whip

Check out Ryan Nyquist’s attempt to master the “whip” in preparation for the Crankworx Whip-Off World Championships and the bike he’ll do it on.


Brand new for 2019, the Thread line brings Freestyle MTB models with Aluminum frames back to Haro Bikes. Light, rigid, precise and built for shredding, the Thread line offers three models with two hardtails and one dual-suspension. The Thread Slopestyle is the ultimate model in this new line. With its new 2019 X6 tubing dual suspension frame, it features 100mm of front travel with its Manitou Circus Expert fork and 80mm of rear travel without any chain stretch thanks to its central BB shell pivot for a simple, solid and efficient single-speed suspension platform, which provides increased pump to go higher and forgive harsh landings. Light and precise, the Thread Slopestyle features a gravity-proven FSA Gradient cockpit and crankset with a 30-14t gearing ratio, sealed bearing Premium Nylon Slim Pedals, Spank Spoon rims, Pivotal MTB saddle and alloy seat-post, and a new Haro oversize sealed rotor for fast bar-spin action. The Thread Slopestyle offers a unique combination with its custom alloy detangler and hydraulic-assisted rear brake with the innovative TRP HY/RD disc caliper for high-performance braking and an unmatched bar-spinning experience. haromtb.com
