Features /

Slash has been redesigned from the ground up to pack everything we’ve learned about conquering the gnarliest trails and enduros into a 650b-optimised king of the mountain.


ABP

Our patented Active Braking Pivot allows your suspension to work freely whether you’re on the brakes or off. It’s smooth, controlled suspension that’s at its best all the time.

DRCV

With DRCV, you can have it all: supple small-bump feel, great pedalling efficiency, and seemingly bottomless travel for the big stuff.

Full Floater

We attach the shock to two moving linkage points for greater response over a wide variety of terrain. It feels like more travel, but it’s not. It’s smarter travel.

EVO Link

Our exclusive system connects the main frame to the rear triangle with a one-piece rocker link, creating a stiffer frame for greater control with minimal weight.

E2 tapered head tube

E2 tapers from a 1.5" lower to a 1-1/8" upper, placing more material where it matters most for the stiffness of a full 1.5" system without the added weight.

Mino Link adjustable geometry

Fine tune head tube angle by 1/2° and BB height by up to 10mm with the simple turn of a nut. A Trek exclusive.

Alpha Platinum Aluminium

Trek's premium alloy, formed into sophisticated tube shapes for maximum strength and minimum weight.

Down tube guard

Replaceable external shield protects the down tube from trail debris.

27.5/650b wheels

650b is the newest MTB wheel size. It falls between 26" and 29er, but closer to 26". It rides and behaves much like a 26" wheel, with a little more stability and speed.

15QR

A 15mm front thru axle makes steering more precise for more control, and the quick-release feature makes wheel removal easy.

142x12

A more robust and confidence-inspiring rear thru axle, about 35% stiffer than an open-dropout design. And now, a thru-axle wheel change is actually quick and easy.

Direct-mount derailleur

Derailleur attaches directly to the frame for accurate gear shifting in a lightweight, minimal package.

Post-mount disc brake

Post mounting is the simplest, most efficient way to mount a brake caliper to your bike. Functions brilliantly, reduces weight.

ISCG mounts

International Standard Chain-Guide mounts offer easy chain-guide installation and adjustment.

Extended size range

A wider range of sizes than the industry standard provides more options for everyone, from tallest to shortest and all those in between. Because everyone deserves a great ride.

2x10

A 10-speed cassette and 2-ring crankset deliver a full range of usable gears, with less weight and easier, smoother gear shifting.

Press-fit bottom bracket

Press-fit BB increases pedalling efficiency and allows for a stronger, stiffer frame structure.

Internal derailleur routing

Route your derailleur cables through the frame to keep your bike running smooth and clean.

Dropper-post internal routing

Frame is prepped for internal routing if you decide to add a remotely adjustable seat post.

RockShox Reverb with Stealth routing

RockShox Reverb gives you 125mm of seat height adjustment with a hydraulically actuated remote, stealthily routed though the frame itself.

Chain guide

ISCG-mounted chain guide keeps your chain from dropping off the chainring on jarring sections of trail.

Climb-Trail-Descend

CTD gives you three suspension-adjustment options: Climb, Trail, or Descend. It’s a simple, intuitive, high-performance system available on selected Fox shocks and forks.

34mm stanchions

34mm fork stanchions are more robust than their 32mm counterparts. They offer stiffer, more confident suspension performance when chewing through big, technical terrain.
