The Slash 9.8 is a carbon enduro mountain bike that doesn't back down from hair-raising descents. It's built with an OCLV Mountain Carbon frame and 170 mm high-pivot suspension for gobbling up boulders and keeping traction on point for wall rides and punchy climbs. A 29? front and 27.5? rear wheel keep handling playful, and an upgraded RockShox suspension package holds up to anything you can throw at it. All topped off with a Shimano XT drivetrain for clean shifts.

You want a carbon enduro bike that's beastly on descents and nimble on climbs. You want the traction and stability of a high-pivot suspension, and long travel for soaking up deep roots and big drops. Upgrades matter to you, and you love the benefit of a wireless transmission and carbon wheels.

An OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with high pivot suspension, plus internal storage. 170 mm of front and rear travel with a RockShox ZEB Select+ fork with DebonAir spring and Charger 3 RC2 damper, and RockShox Vivid Select+ shock. Plenty of gears for the push back to the top with Shimano's XT drivetrain, a Bontrager Line Dropper and a MX wheel set-up with 29 in front and 27.5 in rear carbon Bontrager Line Elite 30 Tubeless Ready wheels with Rapid Drive hub.

For riders looking for carbon performance and a cherry-picked blend of component upgrades, the Slash 9.8 XT is ready to rip. It's built with 170 mm travel in the front and rear, upgraded suspension and drivetrain, plus carbon hoops, so you can climb light and descend hard.
- Its high-pivot suspension gives you insane control for hairy descents, while carefully tuned anti-squat and oversized pulleys make pedalling astonishingly efficient
- The long, 170 mm/170 mm front and rear travel is more than enough for stomping big jumps and cleaning rock gardens
- OCLV Mountain Carbon frame and wheels keep your ride light, stiff in all the right places, and smooth and quiet through the chunder
- It comes ready to roll with a mixed wheel set-up that gives you a fast-rolling 29 in front hoop and stiff, yet nimble 27.5 in rear wheel, and can be set up as a 29er for more speed
- You can tweak Slash for how and where you ride with an adjustable leverage rate, bolt-on lower shock mount for swapping to full 29er and adjustable-angle headset (sold separately)

High-pivot suspension
The Slash's high main pivot allows the axle to move rearward as the suspension compresses, so the back wheel moves with the force from bumps and gets out of the way faster. On the trail, it feels ultra-smooth while maintaining more momentum with insane traction.

Curb the kickback
The Slash's oversized upper idler not only eliminates the pedal kickback caused by high pivot, but its size and position also give you just the right amount of anti-squat for efficient pedalling. The lower idler takes chain tension off the derailleur so you get smoother shifting and suspension performance.

Mixed wheel size
You get a 29" front wheel for monster truckin' over stuff, with a smaller 27.5" wheel out back for getting rowdy. Want full 29er speed? Just swap the lower shock mount (sold separately) to lower BB height for running a faster wheel out back.

Improved internal storage
The Slash's storage door is bigger, easier to use and the plastic parts are all made from recycled materials.

Adjust the suss for full send
Adjust the leverage rate with just a flip of a chip. Ride it in the Less progressive setting for a plusher feel perfect for rugged trails with square-edge bumps. Flip it to More progressive when you're hitting big features and don't want to bottom-out, or when you want to run a coil shock.

Slack or steep, the choice is yours
Install angle-adjust headset cups (sold separately) to tweak the head tube angle a degree steeper or slacker to your liking - all without impacting your bottom bracket height.

Summit Cycles work will all major providers of the government backed Cycle to Work scheme. If you would like to buy a bike from us using the scheme your employer offers you will need to contact us to discuss the arrangements and eligibility of your purchase. Cycle to Work schemes are a great way to buy a bike and can offer a big saving on the price of your purchase but the ways that each individual scheme operate can vary so it is worth taking some time to find out exactly how your scheme works.

At Summit Cycles we aim to make our part of the process of buying by a Cycle to Work scheme as easy and as simple as possible. We can help you find the right bike and any accessories or extras you will need to make sure you are 100% ready to enjoy your purchased.

The best starting point is to speak with your human resources manager or the person responsible for administering the scheme your employer offers to find out who the provider is and the terms and conditions of the scheme they offer. You can often begin the application process by registering directly with the provider, often via their website. Many providers will ask us to provide a quote for the purchase so this is when you will need to speak to us to check eligibility and of course availability of your chosen bike but our staff can help you make the best choice, guiding you to the right bike and accessories and then raising the information you will need.

Processing can take a little time but often we can secure the bike you want with the payment of a deposit, refundable when the scheme provider issues confirmation certificate or payment.

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.
