The Trek Slash is a true statement. It’s the company’s flagship enduro bike and it’s 29 inch. Only. In full team colours with a penthouse spec and race geo, this is an absolute stunner – the performance is likewise.
There is a lot of thought gone into this frame. It’s based on the World Cup and World Champs winning Trek Session, so the resemblance it bears is far from coincidental. The straight downtube boosts stiffness (apparently to downhill bike levels according to Trek) and is complemented by the Knock Block chip frame defence.
“When this whole bike comes together, it’s a dream”
There is enough clearance here for a 2.6” tyre (keep an eye out for that size to take off over the next 12 months) but Trek don’t reckon that Plus tyres will fit (why you would want to is beyond us anyway). Also not permitted are multiple front chainrings, the Slash is 1x only to keep the chainstays short and optimise stiffness and weight.
