Trek Slash

This Trek Slash Enduro bike was a special order for our in-house mechanic, Aaron. As a keen off-road rider, Aaron wanted something light, with 29 inch wheels and just the right amount of travel.

This custom build includes a light, full carbon fibre frame with Bontrager carbon 35mm bars and Trek’s own thru-shaft rear shock. Rockshok Yari Debonair forks give 160mm of travel.

Aaron rides Continental Der Baron tyres front and rear as a great all-round fast yet grippy Enduro tyre.

The finishing kit consists of:

  • Full XT groupset with Zee brakes
  • Bontrager Line Pro bars (800mm cut to 780mm) and stem
  • Easton grips
  • Trek saddle
  • 150mm Brand X dropper post
  • Bontrager Wheelset (pending arrival of Chris Kings)

Aaron is delighted with his Slash and it has received lots of compliments on the trails. Here’s his feedback:

“The bike rides amazingly well, tracks great over roots, corners fast and holds speed very well in the open sections.”
