    Summary

    Expirience with the Trek Slash 8 Gen 6

    Trek Slash 8 Gen 6 Review Trek delivers what the scene wants with the Slash 8. A high pivot enduro with a mullet wheel setup. A mini downhiller that doesn't shy away from any trail in this world with 170 mm of fork travel. God bless America and its engineers. The geometry is moderate and makes for a balanced handling. When entering the saddle, the Slash 8 conveys a balanced seating position. With 16,5 kg, the Enduro von Trek tends to be one of the heavier bikes on the market. Despite this criticism, the coherent overall concept makes the Trek Fully to on very demanding single trails a buying recommendation in the price range 4499 Euro range. With 25 years warranty, nothing stands in the way of a long-term relationship.
