Going into Interbike 2015, one thing we expected to see was brands coming up with their own version of portable rail to compete with the Subrosa Street Rail that was the only rail available and clearly selling quite well based off it making appearances all over the world…. But we didn’t see anything except a rail at the S&M Bikes suite that we assumed was just a Subrosa Street Rail somebody had brought along for good times… Turns out we should have been paying closer attention because it was a sample of the “Slide Pipe” that will be avaialble some time this month. The Slide Pipe is made right here in the U.S.A in the S&M Bikes warehouse with zinc tubing and is fully adjustable. It comes in at 8′ long with a 2.25″ diameter for the tubing and hinged legs to allow it to be set up on up and down ledges and stairs while keeping the legs flat. The legs also offer multiple heights from 12″ up to 21″ and the feet have a rubber base to keep it from slipping as well.
The rail will be available for $279.95 direct from the S&M Bikes webstore and BMX shops and mail-orders that carry S&M Bikes worldwide later this month. It sounds like they will also be offering some additional enhancements to offer a few other setup options as well further down the road.
