Slash 8 is an enduro mountain bike that rolls on fast 29er wheels and floats on plush RockShox suspension with SRAM’s newest GX Eagle handling drive train duties. An aluminium frame with fresh new tech and tough alloy wheels push this bike into the sweet spot for all-around rippers.
It’s right for you if…
You want a big bike with big wheels to roll over big things and send big hits. You might enter some enduro races, but you mostly just want to rail sketchy descents faster than anyone else in your crew.
The tech you get
An aluminium frame built for harsh riding with a threaded bottom bracket, dual down tube guards, Knock Block 2.0 and 160 mm of travel with a RockShox Super Deluxe shock for long descents and 170 mm RockShox Lyrik Select+ fork. Plus, a SRAM GX Eagle drive train with an extra-low 52-tooth gear and complete tubeless Line Comp 30 wheels.
The final word
Slash 8 puts serious enduro performance within reach with smart choices on spec that won’t empty your wallet. The aluminium frame, burly suspension, and 1×12 Eagle drive train makes for a ride that’s equally at home on the race courseÂ and on a big, backwoods session.
Why you’ll love it
- A sleek internal storage compartment gives you a versatile spot to stow tools and gear
- We added a second down tube guard to better protect your frame from shuttle-related damage
- 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
- New, removable Knock Block has a bigger steering angle to keep cables and hoses safe without sacrificing turning radius
- Wider seat tube, wider dropper – the 34.9 mm diameter post is stronger, more durable, and moves up and down faster
Why we won’t ship unbuilt Trek Bikes
Due to warranty regulations, Trek bikes must be assembled by a qualified bike mechanic in an approved store. This is an international policy for Trek bikes. Therefore, any Trek Bicycle purchased online must be picked up from Velo Ronnyâs or contact us for further options.
