Gotta get up to get down
Slash has been redesigned from the ground up to pack everything we’ve learned about conquering the gnarliest trails and enduros into a 650b-optimized king of the mountain.
This bike is built to dominate: the mountain, gravity, your limits, the guy with #1 on his numberplate. Throw Slash down the most technical descent, fly back up. And win.
Smooth, controlled braking
Our patented ABP (Active Braking Pivot) keeps your suspension from stiffening up when you're on the brakes, giving you confident, steady control.
DRCV all-terrain control
Our two-chamber DRCV (Dual Rate Control Valve) shock gives you coil performance at air shock weight, for smooth, seamless, all-terrain control.
Fine tune your geometry
Our reversible Mino Link lets you relax the geometry when bombing descents, or tighten it when weaving through singletrack.
650b & enduro optimized
Every detail is optimized and sized to maximize the advantages of 650b wheels, and the slightly racier geometry is tuned for the rigors of enduro.
What people are saying
This bike eats downhill trails for breakfast and can pedal back up for lunch, dinner, and even a late night snack. It does a great job of getting you up the mountain so you can rip back down.
Riders looking for a supremely competent all-mountain bike should check out the Slash. There's been a lot of buzz about the Slash this year, and my experience supports the notion that this is one hell of a bike.
The Trek Slash 9 has proven to be a very reliable bike that can take everything I can dish out. Know that it can be pushed to the extremes, and that to really appreciate this bike you've got to ride it with that mentality. Also know that no matter how rowdy or wild you get, no matter the trail conditions, and no matter how many rocks, roots, and steep pitches are in front of you, the Slash has your back. It'll "save your life" too.
