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 parts spec means you're getting amazing 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 drive train 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 DPX2 shock that offers loads of adjustability and tuning options. Plus, a SRAM NX/GX Eagle 1x12 drive train and 4-piston hydraulic brakes.
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.
- You’ll fade before the FOX DPX2 shock does – it's built to help you squeeze the most out of long, gnarly descents
- New, removable Knock Block has a bigger steering angle to keep cables and hoses safe without sacrificing turning radius
- 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
- Wider seat tube, wider dropper – the 34.9 mm diameter post is stronger, more durable, and moves up and down faster
