Trek Slash 9.8 XT

Slash 9.8 is a carbon enduro mountain bike built to handle big hits, rail corners, and rip down the mountain faster than you ever thought possible. Ultra stiff and ultra tough carbon frame, carbon wheels, and the most refined suspension tech from RockShox make this long-travel 29er a worthy contender for any dedicated rider and enduro podium.

A full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with 160mm of travel and an all-new RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate shock with an updated Thru Shaft damper, plus an all-new RockShox ZEB fork with extra-beefy 38mm stanchions. A Shimano XT 12-speed drivetrain for super-smooth shifting that's easy on the thumb, 4-piston brakes for confident descents, and Line Elite 30 carbon wheels with a 108-tooth Rapid Drive hub for quick acceleration when you need it most.

This is a beast of a mountain bike. You get hot new suspension technology normally reserved for the most expensive bikes, and you get it on a fresh new frame. With Slash 9.8, the faster you go, the better it rides, so giddy-up.

Available demo sizes (one of each) - M/L, XL 

$60/day or $300/week

Available at Charlottesville locations only

Trek Top Fuel 9.8 XT

Top Fuel 9.8 is a full suspension carbon mountain bike for riders who don't settle. Not for parts nor for one style of riding. It combines a high-end parts package with a low-weight carbon frame for one unbelievably fun rig that's fast on flow and fun to ride on techy singletrack.

A light and stiff full carbon frame, 120mm RockShox SID Select+ fork, 120mm of rear travel with a RockShox SID Luxe Ultimate shock, and a new Shimano XT 1x12 drivetrain. Plus, wide carbon Bontrager Line Elite 30 wheels with a 108-tooth Rapid Drive hub for instant engagement, 4-piston brakes for confident descents, Bontrager Line Elite Dropper, and carbon handlebars.

Top Fuel 9.8 is a ridiculously fun carbon down-country bike with upgraded parts that give you noticeable benefits on the trail, like more speed from the carbon wheels and more grip from the ultra-smooth suspension.

Available demo sizes (one of each) - M, L 

$60/day or $300/week

Available at Charlottesville locations only

Road Bikes


We are currently working to replenish our demo fleet with new, safe road bikes. It may take us some time with current market conditions and limited availability. We know it's disappointing - we're sad, too. Please stay tuned!


Due to market conditions, we currently cannot get enough e-bikes to both stock our sales floor and be able to rent/demo. Please do visit us to take a test ride on any e-bike we have in stock, though!


Renters & demo riders are responsible for any and all damage to bikes that occurs during the rental/demo period. This includes damage from riding, road or trail debris, other riders, and transportation. Please be sure to inspect the bike prior to leaving the store to ensure condition is acceptable. Bikes rentals are not available for competitive events or races, and may be denied due to weather or trail conditions. Please be courteous and responsible road/trail users.

We currently do not have any road bike or e-bike rentals or demos. This is due primarily to persisting supply chain issues and we are just as sad about it as you are! We will update this page when we refresh our rental and demo fleet.
