It's right for you if...
You want the best carbon enduro bike on the market, and you don't want to skimp on components. You need a ride that's a beast on descents and nimble on climbs, plus the traction and stability of a high-pivot suspension. Long travel is a must for you, but you want to be able to pedal back to the top without destroying your legs.
The tech you get
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. Shimano's XTR drivetrain gives you precision shifting while a Bontrager Line Dropper gives you plenty of room to move. An MX wheel set-up with 29˝ front and 27.5˝ rear carbon Bontrager Line Elite 30 Tubeless Ready wheels with Rapid Drive hubs give you versatility wherever you charge..
The final word
For riders that don't want to settle for anything but the best, the Slash 9.9 XTR is a dream come true. 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.
Why you'll love it
- 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
- It's ready for trailside quick fixes thanks to the included Bontrager BITS tool that's at the ready in the headset
- 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)
