Slash 9.7

/
£3,800.00 Model 1192600-2018
The Slash 9.7 pairs fast-rolling 29er mountain bike wheels with long-travel suspension to make one speed-hungry rig that's perfectly suited to both rowdy trail rides and enduro races. Carbon where it counts and a smart spec with durable parts and Trek's game-changing suspension means that you're getting ridiculous value, too.

It's right for you if...

You like ripping technical trails at warp speed and want a single bike with insane climbing and descending prowess for the gnarliest trails and enduro races. You prioritise frame and suspension performance above all else, and want a durable drivetrain that won't break the bank.

The tech you get

A 150 mm OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, a stout RockShox Yari RC 160 mm fork and a RockShox Deluxe shock with Trek's ultra-responsive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft damper. Plus, a SRAM's NX 1x11 drivetrain, a Bontrager Drop Line dropper post, and Bontrager Line Comp wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive rear hub for fast engagement.

The final word

The Slash 9.7 gives you heaps of speed and capability for a shorter stack of cash. You're getting a carbon frame, a solid parts group and proven long-travel suspension for performance where you'll notice it most.

favorite_borderWhy we love it

  1. Don't confuse the Slash 9.7 with other value carbon models on the market – this bike gives you our best enduro main frame and suspension with a workhorse drivetrain and wheels
  2. RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft works faster than a normal shock, so it tracks the ground better and keeps you in control
  3. Mino Link lets you adjust the geometry, so you get both an enduro race bike and an ultra-capable trail bike in one
  4. It's equally at home between the tape and in the rugged wild – Yes, Slash is a race bike, but it's ridiculously fun on gnarly trail rides, too
