Experience the thrill of adrenaline-pulsing trail adventures with the 2024 Slash 8 Gen 6 by TREK. Designed for avid off-road cyclers, it marries boosted traction for punchy climb stages with stability for swift downhill rushes. Built on a high-pivot platform with an impressive 170 mm front and rear travel, it promises exhilarating ride experiences every time.

This versatile bike flaunts a playful combination of a 29” front wheel and a 27.5” rear wheel. The pairing promises an exciting balance between nimble handling and fast rolling. When it comes to gear shifts, the Shimano XT drivetrain ensures clean, smooth transitions across different terrains.

The Slash 8 Gen 6 features a robust Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame with internal storage, an idler pulley, and high pivot suspension. It boasts a FOX Rhythm 36 fork with Float EVOL air spring and a GRIP damper along with a Fox Performance Float X shock for optimum suspension performance. This mid-fat, rock-crushing bike is accentuated by a Bontrager Line Dropper and the MX wheel set-up.

  • Enjoy boosted control on steep descents and efficient pedalling courtesy of its high-pivot suspension.
  • Take advantage of stupendous jump stomping power and effortless navigation of rock gardens with 170mm front and rear travel.
  • Indulge in smooth, efficient rides with a mixed wheel set-up and advanced Shimano XT shifting.
  • Customise your ride with the adjustable leverage rate, adaptable lower shock mount for a full 29er swap-over, and adjustable-angle headset (sold separately).
  • Keep your tools and snacks handy with its internal storage option, available across models.

The Slash 8 Gen 6 has the unique high main pivot design that employs a rearward axle movement as the suspension compresses. This results in ultra-smooth trail rides with greater momentum and unparalleled traction. Additionally, the oversized idler effectively eliminates pedal kickback and boosts the anti-squat effect for efficient pedalling. The lower idler, on the other hand, enhances chain tension and further smoothens shifting and suspension performance.

With the new Slash 8 Gen 6 from TREK, reinvigorate your enduro mountain biking and trailblazing experiences.

We do not currently offer to ship bikes purchased via our website, these must be collected from our store. If you see a bike that you are interested in and are unable to collect from us then it may still be worth getting in touch with us to explore further options.


Arrangements and order processing times on new bike purchases

Bikes purchased via our website will be made ready for store collection. This can take a few days depending on where the bike is located. Some bikes will need to ship from a supplier but if this is the case the expected lead time for delivery to us will be displayed on our site. We also hold stock at an off-site storage location and transfer can take a day or so. When we have the bike it will be scheduled for assembly and safety checks with one of our CYTEC mechanics. Once this is complete we will send a final confirmation that the bike is ready for collection and you can then visit the store to pick it up.

With bike purchases, a member of our team will usually contact you prior to processing to check sizing and other details. For bikes in our stock the process from order to collection usually takes 3 or 4 working days but can be quicker sometimes or longer if the bike is shipping to us from a supplier. A member of our team will be able to give you more information if required.


Store collection

Once your new bike is ready for collection we will get in touch with you to arrange a convenient time for pickup. Collection is from our store at 65 North Parade, Aberystwyth. When you come to collect we may ask for you to present proof of identity for security reasons. A member of staff will check size and personal adjustments like saddle height and can provide advice on care and service arrangements so please allow a little time for the handover process.
