It's right for you if...

You want a big bike with big wheels to roll over big things and send big hits. You might enter some enduro races, but you mostly just want to rail sketchy descents faster than anyone else in your crew.

The tech you get

An aluminium frame built for harsh riding with a threaded bottom bracket, dual downtube guards, Knock Block 2.0 and 160 mm of travel with a RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate shock for long descents and 170 mm RockShox Lyrik Select+ fork. Plus, a SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain with an extra-low 52-tooth gear, Code R 4-piston brakes and completely tubeless Line Comp 30 wheels.

The final word

Slash 8 puts serious enduro performance within reach with smart choices on spec that won’t empty your wallet. The aluminium frame, burly suspension and 1×12 Eagle drivetrain makes for a ride that’s equally at home on the race course and on a big, out-in-the-wild session.

Internal Storage

Internal frame storage makes it easy to ditch the pack and still carry your ride essentials.

RockShox Super Deluxe Thru Shaft damper

With the all-new RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate Thru Shaft, you get the most refined shock on the market, with an updated air spring and an exclusive Thru Shaft damper that gives you tenacious grip, plush control and the support you need for ripping rough descents all day.

The strong quiet type

The Roscoe stays well protected with a double-sided chainstay guard, tough downtube guard and internal cable guides that help your ride stay quiet, even over rough trails.

Active Braking Pivot

Active Braking Pivot allows our engineers to tune how the suspension reacts to acceleration and braking forces independently. That means you get more confident control when you need it most.

Complete frame protection

Replaceable down tube guards protect the underside of your frame from rock strikes, trail debris and janky shuttle vehicles so you can forget about damage worries and focus on blasting the next run.

Rapid Drive 108 rear hub

With 108 points of engagement, Rapid Drive gives you nearly instant acceleration instead of a clunky lag when you step on the pedals. You get smooth, immediate power to blast out of corners and hammer through the rough stuff. And that extra pedal ratchet adds control that can make all the difference when tackling a tricky climb.
