Dual Suspension Mountain Bikes
$6,499.99

or /week for months

Product Details

Slash 8 is an enduro mountain bike that rolls on fast 29er wheels and floats on plush RockShox suspension with SRAM's newest GX Eagle handling drive train duties. An aluminium frame with fresh new tech and tough alloy wheels push this bike into the sweet spot for all-around rippers.
 
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   
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   
New, removable Knock Block has a bigger steering angle to keep cables and hoses safe without sacrificing turning radius   
Wider seat tube, wider dropper – the 34.9 mm diameter post is stronger, more durable, and moves up and down faster

  • Serious performance up and down, but a few small issues keep it from being one of the best "overal" bikes available in this price range.
    The new Slash is a huge step from the old one, for the better - the bike rides up and down better than ever before, theres a few QC issues such as headset bearing height, creaking seats, creaking ABP, the left lower shock bearing on both bikes have been rough from new and most of them seem to end up with an odd creak/click around the main pivot area that people and i are unable to seem to solve, the carbon bike doesnt have any of these issues for whatever reason...

  • Great all round bike, and a good step up from the remedy series for downhill.
