2014 Trek Slash 9 650B/27.5

Whether you're into steep, techy stuff or flowy, high-speed jump trails, Trek's Slash 9 650B slays it all. The Alpha aluminum frame houses a 142x12mm rear axle, Full Floater and ABP rear suspensions, and an E2 head tube, resulting in an all-mountain bike with the chops of a freeride rig and the pedaling ability of a lighter weight trail machine. To achieve this, 160mm of travel is supplied by a Fox 34 Talas up front and a DRCV-equipped Float out back, both with CTD damping. The rest of the specs are spot-on with tubeless-ready wheels, a carbon bar, 1x11 gearing and X0 Trail brakes. You also get a Reverb Stealth dropper post to keep your flow going.
