Details

Whether you're into steep, techy stuff or flowy, high-speed jump trails, Trek's Slash 9 650B slays it all. The Alpha aluminum frame houses a 142x12mm rear axle, Full Floater and ABP rear suspensions, and an E2 head tube, resulting in an all-mountain bike with the chops of a freeride rig and the pedaling ability of a lighter weight trail machine. To achieve this, 160mm of travel is supplied by a Fox 34 Talas up front and a DRCV-equipped Float out back, both with CTD damping. The rest of the specs are spot-on with tubeless-ready wheels, a carbon bar, 1x11 gearing and X0 Trail brakes. You also get a Reverb Stealth dropper post to keep your flow going.

Trek's EVO link
Trek's EVO rocker link is a one-piece, magnesium linkage that drastically increases rear-end stiffness and decreases total frame weight, too.

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.

Trek's E2 head tube is 1 1/2 inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8 inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems and not adding much weight.

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!
