Slash AL Frame Set is the perfect platform for a fast 29er enduro or trail bike build. With a burly Alpha Aluminium frame, Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv shock and a Knock Block 2.0 integrated headset, you have all the bones for a mountain bike that can handle everything from the biggest all-mountain descents to the most competitive enduro races.
It's right for you if...
You want a high-value head start on your enduro build and the kind of trail tech that comes only from a long heritage of all-mountain riding. You like to go fast, go big and rail corners, and you're looking for a big bike that will stand up to whatever wild trails you can find.
The tech you get
A burly Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame with Control Freak internal routing, 160 mm of travel with a RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ shock with plush DebonAir spring and Select+ damper, a 35 mm Bontrager Line stem and an integrated Knock Block 2.0 headset that stops spinning bars and the fork crown from hitting your frame. Built for 29er wheels and a 170 mm or 180 mm fork.
The final word
With Slash AL Frame Set, you're getting a whole lot of capability for your money and a great start on a bike that can handle the burliest trails out there. Whether you're racing or looking to get sendy, this burly frame set will stand up to whatever you throw at it.
Why you'll love it
- It's equally at home between the tape and in the rugged wild – Yes, Slash is a race bike, but it's ridiculously fun on gnarly trail rides, too
- A large internal storage compartment in the down tube lets you stow tools and gear
- Mino Link lets you adjust the geometry, so you get both an enduro race bike and an ultra-capable trail bike in one
- New, removable Knock Block has a bigger steering angle to keep cables and hoses safe without sacrificing turning radius
