Get ready to destroy the trail in front of you with the Trek Slash...

The Trek Slash is a 29" wheeled, 160mm travel bike that is a party on wheels. It's a trail bike that will happily pedal away up the hill but point this thing down a hill and it's a monster ready to tackle the most brutal terrain you can dream up. Don't be deceived by the long travel and bigger wheels, this bike is agile and lively and ready to light up the trails.

Why would I buy a Slash?

You'd buy a Slash if you really want to maximise the fun on the way back down and you're not that concerned about getting up the hill like an XC whippet. You'd definitely buy one if you want to race gravity enduro events and beating the clock is your priority. The big wheels roll fast and grip hard on the ground. This being said, it's not a race only bike. You might be really tall and a heavier rider and the size of the bike suits you down to a tee. It's certainly a bike for the rider who likes to descend and descend hard and at the same time for a newer rider it will also help to keep you safe and in control and even make up for some mistakes you make while learning. The long travel and big wheels make for a forgiving bike and a whole lot of fun times ahead!
