XC/DH: The Slash is Here.
Trek's New Slash 9 is so named because it is for XC slash DH riding--get it? This is one of the new generation of long-travel trail bikes that can be ridden up the mountain and then descend like a freeride or DH bike. The 9 is the top end of Trek's 3-bike Slash series and sells for $5799. The Slash 8 is $4749 and the Slash 7 is $3699. The Slash 9 seen here has a full SRAM XO drivetrain, a Fox 36 TALAS Kashima fork, a Kashima DRCV Fox RP-3 and a really cool internally-routed Rockshox Reverb Stealth dropper seatpost. Come see it before it's gone. Want to get sponsored by Redbull or just pretend you are? This is the bike for you.
