The Slash 9.8 is a carbon enduro mountain bike that doesn't back down from hair-raising descents. It's built with an OCLV Mountain Carbon frame and 170 mm high-pivot suspension for gobbling up boulders and keeping traction on point for wall rides and punchy climbs. A 29? front and 27.5? rear wheel keep handling playful, and an upgraded RockShox suspension package holds up to anything you can throw at it. All topped off with a Shimano XT drivetrain for clean shifts.

You want a carbon enduro bike that's beastly on descents and nimble on climbs. You want the traction and stability of a high-pivot suspension, and long travel for soaking up deep roots and big drops. Upgrades matter to you, and you love the benefit of a wireless transmission and carbon wheels.

An OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with high pivot suspension, plus internal storage. 170 mm of front and rear travel with a RockShox ZEB Select+ fork with DebonAir spring and Charger 3 RC2 damper, and RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ shock. Plenty of gears for the push back to the top with Shimano's XT drivetrain, a Bontrager Line Dropper and a MX wheel set-up with 29 in front and 27.5 in rear carbon Bontrager Line Elite 30 Tubeless Ready wheels with Rapid Drive hub.

For riders looking for carbon performance and a cherry-picked blend of component upgrades, the Slash 9.8 XT is ready to rip. It's built with 170 mm travel in the front and rear, upgraded suspension and drivetrain, plus carbon hoops, so you can climb light and descend hard.
- Its high-pivot suspension gives you insane control for hairy descents, while carefully tuned anti-squat and oversized pulleys make pedalling astonishingly efficient
- The long, 170 mm/170 mm front and rear travel is more than enough for stomping big jumps and cleaning rock gardens
- OCLV Mountain Carbon frame and wheels keep your ride light, stiff in all the right places, and smooth and quiet through the chunder
- It comes ready to roll with a mixed wheel set-up that gives you a fast-rolling 29 in front hoop and stiff, yet nimble 27.5 in rear wheel, and can be set up as a 29er for more speed
- You can tweak Slash for how and where you ride with an adjustable leverage rate, bolt-on lower shock mount for swapping to full 29er and adjustable-angle headset (sold separately)

High-pivot suspension
The Slash's high main pivot allows the axle to move rearward as the suspension compresses, so the back wheel moves with the force from bumps and gets out of the way faster. On the trail, it feels ultra-smooth while maintaining more momentum with insane traction.

Curb the kickback
The Slash's oversized upper idler not only eliminates the pedal kickback caused by high pivot, but its size and position also give you just the right amount of anti-squat for efficient pedalling. The lower idler takes chain tension off the derailleur so you get smoother shifting and suspension performance.

Mixed wheel size
You get a 29" front wheel for monster truckin' over stuff, with a smaller 27.5" wheel out back for getting rowdy. Want full 29er speed? Just swap the lower shock mount (sold separately) to lower BB height for running a faster wheel out back.

Improved internal storage
The Slash's storage door is bigger, easier to use and the plastic parts are all made from recycled materials.

Adjust the suss for full send
Adjust the leverage rate with just a flip of a chip. Ride it in the Less progressive setting for a plusher feel perfect for rugged trails with square-edge bumps. Flip it to More progressive when you're hitting big features and don?t want to bottom-out, or when you want to run a coil shock.

Slack or steep, the choice is yours
Install angle-adjust headset cups (sold separately) to tweak the head tube angle a degree steeper or slacker to your liking ? all without impacting your bottom bracket height.
