Slash 9.9 is the fastest enduro mountain bike in the lineup, so it's no surprise it's the go-to ride for the pros of Trek Factory Racing Enduro. A full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, RockShox Lyrik Ultimate fork, Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft shock, fast-rolling carbon 29er wheels, and a SRAM X01 Eagle drivetrain make this top-of-the-line ride the undisputed king of enduro.
It's right for you if...
You're looking for the kind of performance advantages that come only from the kind of enduro race bikes that rip it up on the World Tour. You like going fast, getting rowdy, and railing corners all the way to the top step of the podium.
The tech you get
A full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, a RockShox Lyrik Ultimate 160mm fork with a Charger 2 RC2 damper, and 150mm of rear travel with a RockShox Deluxe RT3 shock featuring Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft damper. Plus, a SRAM X01 Eagle 1x12 drivetrain, 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.
The final word
There's not a single part on this bike that wasn't made for ripping it up at insane speeds on the wildest enduro courses in the world. Fast, tough, fast, fun, fast. Did we mention this bike is fast?
Why you'll love it
- 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
A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.
Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.
Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
