Details

Slash 9.8 is a carbon enduro mountain bike built to handle big hits, rail corners, and rip down the mountain faster than you ever thought possible. Ultra-stiff and ultra-tough carbon frame, advanced suspension tech, and lightning-fast SRAM GX Eagle AXS wireless electronic shifting make this long-travel 29er a worthy contender for any dedicated rider and enduro podium.

It's right for you if...
You're looking to tackle huge days on huge mountains, whether it's an enduro race or an epic adventure. You want the light weight and muted vibes of a carbon frame, tunable suspension performance, and the precise shifts of a GX Eagle AXS drivetrain.

The tech you get
A full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with 160mm of travel and a RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate shock with an updated Thru Shaft damper, plus a RockShox ZEB fork with extra-beefy 38mm stanchions. A SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain with a 10-52 cassette and Bontrager Line Elite 30 carbon wheels with a 108-tooth Rapid Drive hub for instant acceleration when you need it most.

The final word
This is a beast of a mountain bike. You get top-notch suspension technology, rad carbon wheels, and the awesome cable-free shifting of a SRAM AXS drivetrain.

Why you'll love it
- The RockShox ZEB fork's bigger 38mm stanchions help you stay on your line through the chunky stuff, while the updated damper lets you dial in the feel
- The SRAM GX Eagle AXS drivetrain is smart, smooth, and completely wireless
- We added a second down tube guard to better protect your frame from shuttle-related damage
- Wider seat tube, wider dropper—the 34.9mm diameter post is stronger, more durable, and moves up and down faster
- A large internal storage compartment in the down tube lets you stow tools and gear
