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.
