Ionic2 (beta 11) ion-slides causing EXC_BAD_ACCESS

Hi all,

I am currently working on an ionic2 project involving an application header with an ion-slides component. The component itself consists of an AJAX call to retrieve the contents of the slides and an *ngFor directive to iterate on the slide contents and generate the components as deemed necessary.

<ion-slides [options]="_sliderOptions" >
    <ion-slide *ngFor="let _slide of _bannerContent" [ngStyle]="{'background-image': 'url('+_slide.banner_image+')'}" (click)="_slide.banner_click()">
      
    </ion-slide>
  </ion-slides>

The component works flawlessly on any browser (both Chrome and Safari) or Android, however when running the application on an emulator on an actual device itself it triggers an EXC_BAD ACCESS error as shown in the image below. Has anyone encountered any similar issues? And if so, can you kindly assist me in moving forward? What I am trying to achieve is a dynamic set of slides with auto looping.
