Whether you’re looking to cut costs or shave time at your next enduro race, there is now a Slash model built just for you.
Trek has doubled its 29″ enduro range, adding an aluminum frame Slash AL option and, at the other end of the price range, a new top-end, full-carbon Slash 9.9 .
You can even get the new models in your favourite flavour. Trek has made every version of the 2019 Slash available in two different colour options: one bright colour option and one more subtle colour scheme.
Trek’s Slash 8 brings the race-bred performance of the Madison, Wsic.-company’s EWS-ready frame to a more approachable price point. The aluminum frame carries the same geometry and design technology as the full-carbon slash to a more wallet-friendly alloy frame.
A smart build kit helps keep performance at the lower price, including a full SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain and 160mm RockShox Yari fork. Like it’s light-weight brethren the Slash 8 gets a Re:aktiv Thru Shaft shock, exclusive to Trek bikes.
The Slash started out as the frame for Trek Factory Racing’s Enduro World Series riders so, while adding a price-conscious aluminum option, Trek also re-introduced the top-of-the-line, full-carbon Slash 9.9. With SRAM X01 Eagle parts, carbon wheels, and a Fox Facotry fork, the 9.9 is race ready enduro weapon out of the box.
