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.”
