Slash 9.7 pairs fast-rolling 29er mountain bike wheels with long-travel suspension to make one speed-hungry rig that's perfectly suited to both rowdy trail rides and enduro races. A full carbon frame, killer suspension package and a solid component spec means you're getting outstanding performance at a ridiculous value too.
You like ripping technical trails at warp speed and want a bike with insane descending prowess for the gnarliest trails and enduro races. You prioritise frame and suspension performance above all else, and want a durable drivetrain that won't break the bank.
A full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with Mino Link adjustable geometry, a 170 mm FOX Rhythm 36 Float EVOL fork with GRIP damper and 160 mm of rear travel with a FOX Performance Float X shock that offers loads of adjustability and tuning options. Plus, a Shimano SLX/XT 1x12 drivetrain, 4-piston hydraulic brakes and Line Comp 30 wheels, already set up completely tubeless-ready, including sealant.
Slash 9.7 gives you heaps of speed and courage for a shorter stack of cash. You're getting a full carbon frame, a solid parts group and proven long-travel suspension for performance where you'll notice it most.
