Trek's Slash 7 27.5 is made for gravity riders who aren't afraid of a little pedaling. The super stiff aluminum frame charges hard with a tapered head tube and Trek's proven ABP rear end that has been beefed up with a stout 142x12mm axle. With 160mm of suspension, you're emboldened to push it past the envelope and come out clean on the other side. Because you usually have to climb to the top, the Slash features a RockShox Monarch Plus DebonAir shock and Full Floater suspension that supplies an efficient pedaling platform. On the way down, the suspension devours everything from braking bumps to overshot transitions with almost bottomless travel. Key specs include the a big 160mm Pike, tubeless-ready Bonty wheels, SRAM 2x10 gearing and Shimano brakes.
