Meet Trek Slash: a long-travel Trail Bike built for Speed

Trek (United States) - Slash is a long-travel 29er trail bike that’s built for racing the clock or chasing your friends. 150mm of rear suspension travel, enduro-ready parts, and fast-rolling 29er wheels make Slash the perfect mountain bike for riders who wants to go big and crush techy sections with blistering speed.

Unbeatable ride quality:

Thanks to Trek's exclusive frame tech, Slash is sure-footed and composed on even the roughest trails. It plows through brutal terrain and tracks through rough corners. When you push Slash to your limit, it keeps charging.

Exclusive suspension innovation:

All Slash models feature Trek’s RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft shock. It reacts to changes in terrain faster than any other shock available, so you get more traction and more control.

Dialed frame details:

Every Slash features thoughtful frame details that all add up to a ride that looks and feels great. Mino Link lets you quickly fine-tune your geometry and Control Freak keeps your cables tidy, no matter what combination of controls you’re running.

More frame options:

Slash is now available in OCLV Mountain Carbon and Alpha Platinum Aluminum frames so more riders can get the best in long-travel 29er speed and performance. Additional bright color options for every model let you pick the Slash that matches your style.
