It's right for you if...
You're a serious enduro racer, and you're looking for a top-of-the-line 29er with a premium parts group that throws down on technical descents and then flies back up the mountain to do it all again.
The tech you get
A stout OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, a FOX 36 Float 160 mm fork and 150 mm RockShox Deluxe RT3 rear shock featuring Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft damper. Plus, a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain with a 50-tooth cog and Bontrager LINE Elite wheels with a 108-tooth Rapid Drive hub for instant engagement and quick acceleration when you need it most.
The final word
This is a beast of mountain bike. The tough OCLV Mountain Carbon frame and top-of-the-line spec make Slash 9.8 our fastest enduro bike ever. It's so stable and responsive that the faster you go, the better it rides. If you're still on the fence about 29ers in rough stuff, Slash will make you a believer.
