Trek Unveils Aluminum Slash 8 29
Trek has announced a major expansion to its award-winning Slash lineup. The platform now includes an Alpha Platinum Aluminum model, a lower-priced carbon model, and updates across the board.
Slash, which was originally developed for Trek Factory Racing Enduro and re-introduced as a 29er in 2016, has set the standard for long-travel trail bikes. It’s fast, sure-footed, and ridiculously fun in rough terrain, and it has become a staple in the Enduro World Series and on burly trails the world over.
Trek has also re-introduced the full-carbon Slash 9.9 with a SRAM X01 Eagle drivetrain. The top-of-the-line Slash 9.9 offers the best enduro performance parts—including carbon wheels, a Rapid Drive hub, a RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft shock, and a Fox Factory fork—at a new lower price.
