It's right for you if...
You're looking for the kind of performance advantages that come only from the kind of enduro race bikes that rip it up on the World Tour. You want the swift, precise shifting of a wireless electronic drive train, and you like going fast, getting rowdy and railing corners all the way to the top step of the podium.
The tech you get
A stout OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, a 160 mm RockShox Lyrik Ultimate fork with plush DebonAir spring and Charger 2 RC2 damper that gives you more adjustment and control, and 150 mm of rear travel with a RockShox Deluxe RT3 shock featuring Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft damper. Plus, a fully wireless SRAM X01 Eagle AXS 1x12 electronic drive train and RockShox Reverb AXS dropper post, powerful Shimano XT 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes, Bontrager Line Carbon 30 wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive hub for quick acceleration when you need it most and a Bontrager Line Pro OCLV carbon handlebar.
The final word
There's not a single part on this bike that wasn't made for ripping it up at insane speeds on the wildest enduro courses in the world. It has high-end everything, including a fully wireless drive train and dropper post. Slash 9.9 is fast, tough, fast, fun, fast. Did we mention that this bike is fast?
favorite_borderWhy you'll love it
- The SRAM X01 Eagle AXS drive train is smart, smooth and completely wireless
- RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft works faster than a normal shock, so it tracks the ground better and keeps you in control
- 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
- Mino Link lets you adjust the geometry, so you get both an enduro race bike and an ultra-capable trail bike in one
- Make it yours: it's fully customisable through Project One
Complete Tubeless System
Tubeless Ready rims and tyres make it easy to ditch the tubes so you get better traction, fewer flats and less weight. You're ready to roll straight out of the box with the included TLR rim strips, valves and sealant.
Control Freak cable management
The lightest, quietest, most versatile cable management system allows any combination of shift, brake, lockout and dropper post lines to be routed through the frame for clean looks and the ultimate custom set-up.
