Revealed: Trek Remedy and Slash 27.5/650b

27.5 News
Trek Slash

Slash has been redesigned from the ground up to pack everything we’ve learned about conquering the gnarliest trails and enduros into a 650b-optimized king of
the mountain. This bike is built to dominate: the mountain, gravity, your limits, the guy with #1 on his numberplate. Throw Slash down the most technical descent, fly back up. And win.

Lineup:
Slash 9 27.5/650b
Slash 8 27.5/650b
Slash 7 27.5/650b

1. Smooth, controlled braking
Our patented ABP (Active Braking Pivot) keeps your suspension from stiffening up when you’re on the brakes, giving you confident, steady control.

2. DRCV all-terrain control
Our two-chamber DRCV (Dual Rate Control Valve) shock gives you coil performance at air shock weight, for smooth, seamless, all- terrain control.

3. Fine tune your geometry
Our reversible Mino Link lets you relax the geometry when bombing descents, or tighten it when weaving through singletrack.

4. 650b & enduro optimized
Every detail is optimized and sized to maximize the advantages of 650b wheels, and the slightly racier geometry is tuned for the rigors of enduro.
