It's right for you if...
You're looking to tackle huge days on huge mountains, whether it's an enduro race or an epic adventure. You want the light weight and muted vibes of a carbon frame, tunable suspension performance, and the unmatched precision of a SRAM AXS drivetrain.
The tech you get
A full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with internal storage and 160mm of travel with an all-new RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate shock with an updated Thru Shaft damper, plus an all-new RockShox ZEB Select+ fork with extra-beefy 38mm stanchions. A SRAM GX Eagle AXS wireless electronic drivetrain with a 10-52 cassette and Line Elite 30 carbon wheels with a 108-tooth Rapid Drive hub for quick acceleration when you need it most, plus powerful 4-piston brakes.
The final word
This is a beast of a mountain bike. You get hot new suspension technology normally reserved for the most expensive bikes, and you get it on a fresh new frame. With Slash 9.8, the faster you go, the better it rides, so giddy-up.
