Trek Slash 9.7 Mountain Bike 2021 With a lightweight but super-strong carbon fibre frame and superbly specced full-suspension system, the Trek 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.
