£3999 – Trek Slash 9.8 GX AXS Mountain Bike 2021
Trek Slash 9.8 GX AXS Mountain Bike 2021 Fast, efficient and confidence-inspiring, the Trek Slash 9.8 GX AXS Mountain Bike is a heavy-hitting enduro race platform that delivers unwavering performance on the world’s rowdiest terrain. Featuring an ultralight carbon frame construction and revised geometry, this latest edition of the Slash couples the monster-trucking abilities of a 160mm platform with pinpoint precision. A high-end specification ensures this model is race-ready and includes a fully wireless SRAM GX AXS drivetrain for near-telepathic shifting. Longer, lower and slacker, the Slash ticks all the boxes for riders looking to push their boundaries in the backcountry or bike park. 29” wheels offer fast-rolling performance, even over technical terrain, and increases traction through loose corners. Although long in reach, this bike retains a lively ride character, ensuring you’ll never feel overbiked. Internal downtube storage allows you to ditch the backpack, and the adjustable geometry permits simple changes to the BB height and head angle. Trek’s attention to detail shines through on the Slash, with tidy frame details such as a removable Knock Block system and full downtube protection helping to safeguard the stiff carbon frame. Carbon Bontrager Line 30 wheels deliver instantaneous acceleration, owing to their low weight and 108t Rapid Drive engagement, and tubeless Bontrager tyres provide unrivalled traction. The burly RockShox ZEB Select+ is stiff through rough terrain and uses its 170mm of suspension travel to iron out rock gardens, whilst the RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate uses ThruShaft technology for ultimate sensitivity.
