There's not a single part on this bike that wasn't made for ripping it up at insane speeds on the wildest enduro courses in the world. It has high-end everything, including a fully wireless drivetrain and dropper post. Slash 9.9 is fast, tough, fast, fun, fast. Did we mention this bike is fast?
It's right for you if...
You're looking for the kind of performance advantages that come only from the kind of enduro race bikes that rip it up on the World Tour. You want the swift, precise shifting of a wireless electronic drivetrain, and you like going fast, getting rowdy, and railing corners all the way to the top step of the podium.
The tech you get
A stout OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, a 160mm RockShox Lyrik Ultimate fork with plush DebonAir spring and Charger 2 RC2 damper that gives you more adjustment and control, and 150mm of rear travel with a RockShox Deluxe RT3 shock featuring Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft damper. Plus, a fully wireless SRAM X01 Eagle AXS 1x12 electronic drivetrain and RockShox Reverb AXS dropper post, powerful Shimano XT 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes, Bontrager Line Carbon 30 wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive hub for quick acceleration when you need it most, and a Bontrager Line Pro OCLV carbon handlebar.
- The SRAM X01 Eagle AXS drivetrain is smart, smooth, and completely wireless
- RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft works faster than a normal shock, so it tracks the ground better and keeps you in control
- 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
- Mino Link lets you adjust the geometry, so you get both an enduro race bike and an ultra-capable trail bike in one
- Make it yours: it's fully customizable through Project One
Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are the highlights of today’s electronic shifting systems:
Electronic shifting systems use powerful servomotors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with precisely and without chain rub.
Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.
Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you’ll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.
Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.
Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
