Slash 9.7 pairs fast-rolling 29er mountain bike wheels with long-travel suspension to make one speed-hungry rig that's perfectly suited to both rowdy trail rides and enduro races. A full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame and a smart spec with durable parts and Trek's game-changing suspension means you're getting amazing performance at fantastic value too.
You like ripping technical trails at warp speed and want a single bike with insane climbing and descending prowess for the gnarliest trails and enduro races. You prioritise frame and suspension performance above all else, and want a durable drivetrain that won't break the bank.
A full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, a FOX Rhythm 36 Float EVOL 160 mm fork with GRIP damper and 150 mm of rear travel with a Fox Performance Float EVOL shock with Trek's ultra-responsive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft damper. Plus, a mixed SRAM NX and GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain, a Bontrager Line dropper post and Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive rear hub for fast engagement.
Slash 9.7 gives you heaps of speed and capability for a shorter stack of cash. You're getting a full carbon frame, a solid parts group and proven long-travel suspension for performance where you'll notice it most.
- Don't confuse Slash 9.7 with other value carbon models on the market ? this bike gives you our best full carbon frame and suspension with a workhorse drivetrain and wheels
- RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft works faster than a normal shock, so it tracks the ground better and keeps you in control
- Mino Link lets you adjust the geometry, so you get both an enduro race bike and an ultra-capable trail bike in one
- It's equally at home between the tape and in the rugged wild ? Yes, Slash is a race bike, but it's ridiculously fun on gnarly trail rides, too
Active Braking Pivot
Active Braking Pivot allows our engineers to tune how the suspension reacts to acceleration and braking forces independently. That means you get more confident control when you need it most.
Straight Shot w/Knock Block
Trek's Straight Shot frame design optimises the stiffness-to-weight ratio for a more responsive ride. You'll be able to push harder and stay more planted on your line when the going gets rough.
RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft
RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft gives you unmatched grip and control with a shock that reacts to the terrain faster than anything else out there.
