From £3,700.00
Out Of Stock

Slash 9.7 pairs fast-rolling 29er mountain bike wheels with long-travel suspension to make one speed-hungry rig that's perfectly suited to both rowdy trail rides and enduro races. A full carbon frame, killer suspension package and a solid component spec means you're getting outstanding performance at a ridiculous value too.

You like ripping technical trails at warp speed and want a bike with insane descending prowess for the gnarliest trails and enduro races. You prioritise frame and suspension performance above all else, and want a durable drivetrain that won't break the bank.

A full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with Mino Link adjustable geometry, a 170 mm FOX Rhythm 36 Float EVOL fork with GRIP damper and 160 mm of rear travel with a FOX Performance Float X shock that offers loads of adjustability and tuning options. Plus, a Shimano SLX/XT 1x12 drivetrain, 4-piston hydraulic brakes and Line Comp 30 wheels, already set up completely tubeless-ready, including sealant.

Slash 9.7 gives you heaps of speed and courage for a shorter stack of cash. You're getting a full carbon frame, a solid parts group and proven long-travel suspension for performance where you'll notice it most.
- You'll fade before the FOX Performance Float X shock does ? it's built to help you squeeze the most out of long, gnarly descents
- New, removable Knock Block has a bigger steering angle to keep cables and hoses safe without sacrificing turning radius
- 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
- Wider seat tube, wider dropper - the 34.9 mm diameter post is stronger, more durable, and moves up and down faster

Internal Storage
Internal frame storage makes it easy to ditch the pack and still carry your ride essentials.

Active Braking Pivot
Active Braking Pivot allows our engineers to tune how the suspension reacts to acceleration and braking forces independently. That means you get more confident control when you need it most.

Knock Block
Knock Block has your frame's back when things go wrong. It prevents your handlebars from spinning all the way around in a crash, so your hoses won't get yanked and your controls won't hit the top tube.

Complete frame protection
Replaceable down tube guards protect the underside of your frame from rock strikes, trail debris and janky shuttle vehicles so you can forget about damage worries and focus on blasting the next run.

OCLV Mountain Carbon
Trek's mountain-specific carbon fibre is tougher carbon, with unique materials and lay-up procedures, Trek's advanced engineering, and a higher standard of testing.

Rapid Drive 108 rear hub
With 108 points of engagement, Rapid Drive gives you nearly instant acceleration instead of a clunky lag when you step on the pedals. You get smooth, immediate power to blast out of corners and hammer through the rough stuff. And that extra pedal ratchet adds control that can make all the difference when tackling a tricky climb.
