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, and you prioritize tunable suspension performance over a shiny top-shelf drivetrain.

The tech you get

A full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with 160mm of travel and an all-new RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate shock with an updated Thru Shaft damper, plus an all-new RockShox ZEB fork with extra-beefy 38mm stanchions. A SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain with the new 10-52 cassette and Line Carbon 30 wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive hub for quick acceleration when you need it most.

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.

The Walkthrough

favorite_borderWhy you'll love it

  1. The RockShox ZEB fork's bigger 38mm stanchions help you stay on your line through the chunky stuff, while the updated damper lets you dial in the feel
  2. New, removable Knock Block has a bigger steering angle to keep cables and hoses safe without sacrificing turning radius
  3. We added a second down tube guard to better protect your frame from shuttle-related damage
  4. Wider seat tube, wider dropper—the 34.9mm diameter post is stronger, more durable, and moves up and down faster
  5. A large internal storage compartment in the down tube lets you stow tools and gear

Sizing & fit

The charts below show our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8˝, for example, will fit on the same size bike. The best way to find your perfect fit is to consult the experts at your local Trek retailer.
