    Summary

    Expirience with the Trek Slash 9.8 XT Gen 6

    Trek Slash 9.8 XT Gen 6 Review Trek delivers what the scene wants with the Slash 9.8 XT. 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 moderate 62,6 degree head tube angle ensures a balanced handling. The balanced seating position is likely to suite the taste of the majority of bikers. Especially for light riders under 70 kilos, the weight of this bike is enormous. With 15,65 kg, the ratio of rider to bike weight could be lighter. The guarantee of 25 years proves that Trek is behind its products.
