Trek Slash 9.7 29" Mountain Bike 2021
With a lightweight but super-strong carbon fibre frame and superbly specced full-suspension system, the Slash 9.7 29" Mountain Bike is one of Trek's finest. For riders who want to feel planted while riding the toughest trails at speed, the suspension system has been prioritised to deliver. A 170mm FOX Rhythm 36 Float EVOL fork pairs wonderfully with the FOX DPX2 rear shock and its 160mm of travel for a really balanced performance.
Trek's attention to detail is what puts them at the top of the game in so many riders' eyes. The Knock Block headset limits the risk of damage to your top tube or controls in a crash, and for more control while braking, the Active Braking Pivot separates the suspension from braking forces to improve traction. Don't worry about riding your carbon frame over loose rocky sections, with the replaceable down tube guards doing a great job of protecting your frame in case of rock strikes.
The mix of SRAM GX and NX Eagle components make a quality gearset that shifts instantly, and the Code R hydraulic disc brakes are excellent too. The Bontrager Line comp 30 wheels come with a tubeless-ready kit so you can make the most of them right away.
- Full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with Mino Link adjustable geometry
- 170mm FOX Rhythm 36 Float EVOL fork with GRIP damper
- 160mm of rear travel with a FOX DPX2 shock that offers loads of adjustability and tuning options
- You’ll fade before the FOX DPX2 shock does – it's built to help you squeeze the most out of long, gnarly descents
- Removable Knock Block has a bigger steering angle to keep cables and hoses safe without sacrificing turning radius
- A sleek internal storage compartment gives you a versatile spot to stow tools and gear
- Trek added a second down tube guard to better protect your frame from shuttle-related damage
- Wider seat tube, wider dropper – the 34.9mm diameter post is stronger, more durable, and moves up and down faster
