TREK Slash 9.9 X0 AXS Gen6 2023 2024 test review Build quality

The new TREK Slash 9.9 X0 AXS Gen6 2023 2024 it has a high cost, but everything is made very well, nothing has been left to chance and ultimately it is an excellent evolution of the previous model.

The chassis design and rear suspension layout will certainly be taken up by other competitors.

A bike whose cost is not cheap, around 10 thousand euros, and whose weight is not limited to 15.5kg, but in the end it is at the top of the market and other competitors are not cheaper.

However, it is true that the bike has a high cost, perhaps too much.

However, a certain general complexity of the bicycle should be noted, which will have an impact on maintenance and management costs in the long term.

The weight remains high, 15.5Kg.

The possibility of personalizing the bike is excellent.

The TREK Slash 9.9 X0 AXS Gen6 2023 2024 compared to the previous Slash the bike is now easier to ride, more manageable, but just as stable.

The behavior highlights excellent stability on fast speeds and perfect traction uphill, even if in this situation you are penalized by the weight and long suspension travel.

It remains a downhill bike, better if you have access to a ski lift.

The new rear suspension works well, precise at higher excursions, copies the terrain well, perfect.

The chain tensioner system works, but it is not very effective from the point of view of power absorption, there is a certain resistance when pedaling, compared to a traditional system.

Downhill the performance is excellent in absolute terms, a true 100% or almost 100% downhill mountain bike.

Easy to ride on flat terrain, where ride comfort is appreciated, but it is tiring to pedal for long periods due to the weight and suspension travel.

A perfect frame for downhill, it defends itself well on the flat and well uphill.

You can't have everything.

Excellent braking and suspension.

The frame is really an excellent evolution compared to the past.

It still fares better than other similar competitors, but doing a long climb with a 15kg MTB and 170mm of suspension travel is never pleasant.

A frame, however, also excellent for the simple amateur, because it is easy and safe to ride.

It does not have an element in which it can be considered inferior to its direct competitors.

A downhill bike that expresses itself at its best in this area.

TREK Slash 9.9 X0 AXS Gen6 2023 2024 test review Pros and cons

The TREK Slash 9.9 it's not cheap, this is its real and only flaw.

A downhill mountain bike, because otherwise it's a valid mountain bike but nothing that other competitors at a lower cost can't do.

Price and weight are the two main defects for us, then the mechanical complexity which in the long term will certainly cause problems and increase management costs.
