Whether you're into steep, techy stuff or flowy, high-speed jump trails, Trek's Slash 9.8 27.5 slays it all. The OCLV carbon frame houses a 142x12mm rear axle, an E2 head tube, and Full Floater and ABP rear suspensions, resulting in an enduro sled with the chops of a freeride rig and the pedaling ability of a lighter weight trail machine. Up front, a Pike supplies 130/160mm of adjustable travel and a Monarch Plus RC3 DebonAir out back follows suit with insanely tunable travel. The rest of the specs are spot-on with tubeless-ready, 27.5-inch Bontrager wheels, a carbon bar, SRAM X1 1x11 gearing, and XT brakes. You also get a Reverb Stealth dropper post to let you slay it all.
For a clean dropper post setup, Trek uses RockShox’s Reverb Stealth dropper seatpost and internal frame routing. The housing runs inside the frame for a clean look and zero hose issues as the saddle moves up and down.
For every full-suspension mountain bike that they sell, Trek donates $10 to the IMBA to help build new trails. Join the IMBA today!
