Slash 9.8 is a carbon enduro mountain bike built to handle big hits, rail corners and get you both down and up the mountain faster than you ever thought possible. Lightweight and ultra-stiff OCLV Mountain Carbon, carbon wheels, Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft shock, and a host of high-performance parts make this 29er mountain bike a worthy contender for any enduro podium.

You're a serious enduro racer, and you're looking for a high-performance 29er with a premium parts group that throws down on technical descents and then flies back up the mountain to do it all again.

A full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, a RockShox Lyrik Select Plus 160mm fork with plush DebonAir spring and Charger 2.1 RC damper and 150mm of rear travel with a RockShox Deluxe RT3 shock with Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft damper. Plus, a Shimano XT 1x12 drivetrain and Shimano SLX 4-piston brakes, Bontrager Line Elite dropper post, Bontrager Line Pro carbon bars and Bontrager Line Carbon 30 wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive hub for quick acceleration when you need it most.

This is a beast of a mountain bike. The tough OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, Bontrager carbon wheels and high-end spec make Slash 9.8 a ridiculously fast enduro bike. It's so stable and responsive that the faster you go, the better it rides. If you're still on the fence about 29ers in rough stuff, Slash will make you a believer.
- The Slash 9.8 is like a mini DH bike: it has the capability of a downhill bike without the downhill weight
- RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft works faster than a normal shock, so it tracks the ground better and keeps you in control
- 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
- Mino Link lets you adjust the geometry, so you get both an enduro race bike and an ultra-capable trail bike in one
- Control Freak Cable Management allows you to run any combination of cables exactly the way you want, while still giving you sleek looks and protecting your cables against unnecessary wear

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.
