Why you’ll love it
- Don’t confuse Slash 9.7 with other value carbon models on the market – this bike gives you our best full carbon frame and suspension with a workhorse drivetrain and wheels
- RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft works faster than a normal shock, so it tracks the ground better and keeps you in control
- Mino Link lets you adjust the geometry, so you get both an enduro race bike and an ultra-capable trail bike in one
- It’s equally at home between the tape and in the rugged wild – Yes, Slash is a race bike, but it’s ridiculously fun on gnarly trail rides, too
