The Slash 9.8 GX AXS T-Type is a carbon enduro mountain bike that doesn't back down from hair-raising descents. It's built with an OCLV Mountain Carbon frame and 170 mm high-pivot suspension for gobbling up boulders and keeping traction on-point for wall rides and punchy climbs. A 29˝ front and 27.5˝ rear wheel keep handling playful, and an upgraded RockShox suspension package holds up to anything you can throw at it. Plus, it comes equipped with a wireless SRAM GX AXS transmission that keeps shifts on-point, even under load.

It's right for you if...

You want a carbon enduro bike that's beastly on descents and nimble on climbs. You want the traction and stability of a high-pivot suspension, and long travel for soaking up deep roots and big drops. Upgrades matter to you, and you love the benefit of a wireless transmission and carbon wheels.

 

The tech you get

An OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with high pivot suspension and idler pulley, plus internal storage. 170 mm of front and rear travel with a RockShox ZEB Select+ fork with DebonAir spring and Charger 3 RC2 damper, and RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ shock. Plenty of gears for punchy climbs with SRAM's wireless GX AXS transmission, a Bontrager Line Dropper and a MX wheel set-up with 29 in front and 27.5 in rear carbon Bontrager Line Elite 30 Tubeless Ready wheels with Rapid Drive hub.

 

The final word

For riders looking for carbon performance and a cherry-picked blend of component upgrades, the Slash 9.8 GX AXS T-Type is ready to rip. It's built with 170 mm travel in the front and rear, upgraded suspension and drivetrain, plus carbon hoops, so you can climb light and descend hard.


 

Why you'll love it

  1. Its high-pivot suspension gives you insane control for hairy descents, while carefully tuned anti-squat and oversized pulleys make pedalling astonishingly efficient
  2. The long, 170 mm/170 mm front and rear travel is more than enough for stomping big jumps and cleaning rock gardens
  3. OCLV Mountain Carbon frame and wheels keep your ride light, stiff in all the right places, and smooth and quiet through the chunder
  4. It comes ready to roll with a mixed wheel set-up that gives you a fast-rolling 29 in front hoop and stiff, yet nimble 27.5 in rear wheel, and can be set up as a 29er for more speed
  5. You can tweak Slash for how and where you ride with Mino Link, adjustable leverage rate and add an adjustable-angle headset (not included)
