2016 Trek Slash 7 27.5

Trek's Slash 7 27.5 is made for gravity riders who aren't afraid of a little pedaling. The super stiff aluminum frame charges hard with a tapered head tube and Trek's proven ABP rear end thast is stout with a 142x12mm thru axle. With 160mm of suspension from a RockShox Pike RC fork, you're emboldened to push it past the envelope and come out clean on the other side. Because you usually have to climb to the top, the Slash features a RockShox Monarch RL DebonAir shock and Full Floater suspension that supplies an efficient pedaling platform. On the way down, the suspension devours everything from braking bumps to overshot transitions with almost bottomless travel. Key specs include the tubeless-ready, 27.5-inch Bonty wheels and tires, SRAM/Race Face 2x10 gearing, KS dropper post, and Shimano's trusted brakes.

Pros

  • Durable
  • Excellent Descender
  • Awesome Suspension

Cons

  • Slow Dropper Post
  • Easy Bending Rim
  • Very Heavy
  • Hard Going Uphill
  • Fragile

Best Uses

  • Downhill

Comments:

It is pretty good but was little heavy. Also, note that the wheels/rim bend quickly but it is a very good bike to go downhill. Overall, it is definitely an outstanding bike. If you are comfortable with spending a little more money, I would think that Trek session, Trek Slash 8, or Trek Slash 9 are better choices.
