The Slash C Frame Set is the ultimate starting point for your dream enduro race sled. Trail-tough OCLV Mountain Carbon tubes pair with 29-inch wheels to gobble up gnarly rock gardens, Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft shock and a Knock Block 2.0 integrated headset make it the ideal enduro frame for fast rides on gnarly trails.

You're a big-mountain rider with your eyes on the Enduro World Series, so you're looking for every performance advantage you can get in a frame set. You ride sketchy descents at scary speed and you want a bike that can keep up with your all-mountain aspirations.

A trail-tough OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with Control Freak internal routing, 160 mm of travel with a RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ RT shock, a 35 mm Bontrager Line Pro stem and an integrated Knock Block 2.0 headset that stops spinning bars and the fork crown from hitting your frame. Built for 29er wheels and a 170 mm or 180 mm fork.

This is the same frame set raced by the pros of Trek Factory Racing Enduro. It's tough, fast, responsive and fully capable of taking on the wildest enduro courses in the world.

- RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft works faster than a normal shock, so it tracks the ground better and keeps you in control

- A large internal storage compartment in the down tube lets you stow tools and gear

- Mino Link lets you adjust the geometry, so you get both an enduro race bike and an ultra-capable trail bike in one

- New, removable Knock Block has a bigger steering angle to keep cables and hoses safe without sacrificing turning radius

- We added a second down tube guard to better protect your frame from shuttle-related damage

Mountain Bike Buying Guide

Mountain biking is an incredibly diverse sport. Mountain bikes now come in three main flavours. They are XC, Trail and Enduro.

XC – short for cross country, are quick race bikes. They will normally have 29” wheels and come with 100mm of suspension. If you are mainly going to be riding bridleways and natural trails in the South East of England, where our shops are, an XC bike will be the quickest and most efficient option.

Trail – these bikes are designed to be pedalled up and down hill and for use on bridleways and natural trails, but also at dedicated trail centres. They normally come with 130mm or 140mm of suspension travel and can have either 27.5” or 29” wheels, but 29” is quickly becoming the norm. Trail bikes are good all-rounders. They won’t be as fast as an XC bike on the flat but they can handle a lot more challenging terrain, and a few jumps. If you plan on taking your bike to trail centres in Wales, or to the Alps, then a trail bike may be your best option.

Enduro – enduro racing is a thing in and of itself but many people buy enduro bikes for ‘aggressive’ trail riding and uplift days at places like Bike Park Wales. This generally means challenging downhill trails with some big jumps. With around 160mm of suspension travel enduro bikes can take some big hits. They are designed to be efficient enough to pedal up hills but really come into their own when pointed downhill. You get enduro bikes in either 27.5” or 29” wheel sizes as well as mullet setups of 29 at the front and 27.5 at the back.


Men’s and women’s mountain bikes

Nearly all the mountain bikes we sell are now unisex. All of the big brands have gradually stopped doing dedicated men’s and women’s bikes over the last few years. Instead they are focussed on producing bikes in a bigger range of sizes. So, for instance, the Trek Marlin 5 is a unisex bike that now comes in sizes from XXS to XXL large. This means it will fit riders from 4’ 5” to 6’ 5” and everything in between.

Trek made their first bikes in 1976 in a barn in Wisconsin. Now they’re one of the biggest bike brands in the world. Trek bikes cover everything from professional-level road and mountain bike race bikes to commuters, hybrids and kids bikes.

They take a very scientific approach to researching bike and human performance and then make the fastest and most efficient bikes they can.

It doesn’t stop their attention and passion for cycling flows through everything they do. Since the 1990s, Trek has supported Places for Bikes.
