Trek Slash

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.

The two existing models of Trek’s 29″ enduro bike, the Slash 9.7 and Slash 9.8 remain in the line-up, with updates from previous years and new colour options. All versions now get Trek’s Re:activ Thru Shaft shock for 2019.
Additionally, both carbon and aluminum Slash’s are available separately as a frameset-only option if you really want to build your perfectly kitted out enduro race bike.
Trek’s new-look and aluminum Slash models are available now, or in early September, depending on which version your interested in.
