The Slash 9.8 is like a mini DH bike: it has the capability of a downhill bike without the downhill weight.
RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft works faster than a normal shock, so it tracks the ground better and keeps you in control.
Mino Link lets you adjust the geometry, so you get both an enduro race bike and an ultra-capable trail bike in one.
It's equally at home between the tape and in the rugged wild – Yes, Slash is a race bike, but it's ridiculously fun on gnarly trail rides, too.
We're not the only ones who love it: Slash was awarded Mountain Bike of the Year by Pinkbike.
