Slash 7 is a high-value all-mountain ripper that’s built for shredding singletrack at full speed. It's got a stout aluminum frame and capable suspension package that can smash through gnarly, choppy descents like nobody’s business.
It's right for you if...
You’re an all-mountain rider who loves pinning steep descents and sketchy rock gardens. You want a bike that’s born to plow through the roughest stuff at full tilt, is fully capable of racing enduro, and doesn’t ring up at a bank-breaking price.
The tech you get
An aluminum frame built for harsh riding with a threaded bottom bracket, dual downtube guards, Knock Block 2.0, and 160mm of travel with a RockShox Select+ shock and 170mm Yari RC fork. Plus, a Shimano Deore/XT drivetrain, 4-piston brakes for confident descents, and Line Comp 30 wheels that are already completely tubeless ready, including sealant.
The final word
It may be the most affordable Slash in the lineup, but don’t underestimate how fast it'll carry you down the mountain. You get a frame built for day after day of hard riding with a no-nonsense parts package that leaves enough cash in your pocket for enduro entry fees or a lift ticket to party laps.
