It's right for you if...
You want a big bike with big wheels to roll over big things and send big hits. You might enter some enduro races, but you mostly just want to rail sketchy descents faster than anyone else in your crew.
The tech you get
An aluminium frame built for harsh riding with a threaded bottom bracket, dual down tube guards, Knock Block 2.0 and 160 mm of travel with a RockShox Super Deluxe shock for long descents and 170 mm Yari RC fork. Plus, a SRAM GX Eagle drive train with an extra-low 52-tooth gear and complete tubeless Line Comp 30 wheels.
The final word
Slash 8 puts serious enduro performance within reach with smart choices on spec that won't empty your wallet. The aluminium frame, burly suspension, and 1x12 Eagle drive train makes for a ride that's equally at home on the race course and on a big, backwoods session.
