Do you climb up to get down? Trek's Slash 8 27.5 was made with you in mind. Trek's aluminum frame houses a tapered head tube, 142x12 ABP rear end, and Full Floater suspension linkage that pedals efficiently yet sucks up hits of all sizes at any speed. Up front, a Pike supplies a 130/160mm adjustable-travel that's matched to a 160mm Monarch DebonAir shock out back that offers coil-like plushness with the low weight and tunability of an air shock. The parts gracing this bad machine are just as rad. You've got 2x10 gearing with a chain guide, a Reverb Stealth dropper post, and a short Bontrager stem holding wide bars. Tubeless-ready wheels with fat tires and powerful SLX discs keep the ups manageable while maximizing the downs.

This slash is not the lightest on the block but set up tubless, throw on a carbon stem and bar, upgrade the rear shock and bam you have an everyday machine that can handle anything you run it through. After all the upgrades that i just said you can get this bike down to just under 29lbs which is almost as light as its carbon frame setup, dont forget this bike can be light by changeing wheels
This is honestly the best bike I have ever had. There is nothing I didn't like about it.
