Product Details

Slash 8 is an aluminium enduro mountain bike with fast-rolling 29er wheels, a 160 mm RockShox fork and Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft shock.

Smart spec, high-end suspension and the burly Alpha Aluminium frame make Slash 8 a high-value ride for enduro racers and all-around trail rippers who want to rail sketchy descents faster than anyone else in their crew.

It's right for you if...
You're a mountain biker's mountain biker, and you want a big bike with big wheels to roll over big things that get between you and the next big hit. This bike is both fully capable of handling enduro races, and a whole lot of fun on rowdy trails.
The tech you get
A trail-tough Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame, a 160 mm RockShox Yari RC fork and 150 mm of rear travel with a RockShox Deluxe shock with Trek's ultra-responsive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft damper. Plus, a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain, a Bontrager Line dropper post and Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive rear hub for fast engagement.
The final word
Slash 8 puts serious enduro performance within reach with smart choices on spec that won't empty your wallet. The Alpha Aluminium frame, burly suspension, and 1x12 Eagle drivetrain makes for a ride that's equally at home on the race course and on a big, backwoods session.
 
Why you'll love it
  • 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
