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

Plus, a mixed SRAM NX and GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain, a Bontrager Line dropper post and Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive rear hub for fast engagement.

The final word

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

favorite_borderWhy you'll love it

  1. Don't confuse Slash 9.7 with other value carbon models on the market – this bike gives you our best full carbon 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
