Do you climb up to get down? Then Trek's Slash 8 650B was made with you in mind. Trek's aluminum frame houses a tapered head tube, 142x12 ABP rear end and Full Floater suspension linkage that pedals efficiently yet sucks up hits of all sizes at any speed. Up front, Fox supplies a 130/160mm adjustable-travel Talas fork that's matched to a 160mm Fox DRCV shock out back that offers coil-like plushness with the low weight and tunability of an air shock. And the parts are just rad. You've got 2x10 gearing with a chain guide, a Reverb Stealth dropper post, and a short Bontrager stem holding wide bars. Tubeless-ready wheels with fat tires and powerful XT discs keeps things in control those rare times you're on the ground.
Trek’s premium lightweight aluminum is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points for ultimate weight reduction and superior strength. Frames built with Trek’s Alpha Platinum aluminum are hydroformed to create the most sophisticated shapes for the lightest weight, and are finished using their smooth-weld process.
For a clean dropper post setup, Trek uses RockShox’s Reverb Stealth dropper seatpost and internal frame routing. The housing runs inside the frame for a clean look and zero hose issues as the saddle moves up and down.
For every full-suspension mountain bike that they sell, Trek donates $10 to the IMBA to help build new trails. Join the IMBA today!
