2021 Trek Slash

Blister reviews the 2021 Trek Slash

Just a couple years ago, one of our reviewers called the Trek Slash the best all-round Enduro bike he’d ridden at the time. Today, Trek announced the eagerly anticipated update to that bike — the all-new, 2021 Slash. Check out our First Look for the full rundown on what they changed, how the new bike’s design compares to the current market, and our initial on-trail impressions.

2020-2021 Rossignol BLACKOPS Sender

Luke Koppa reviews the Rossignol BLACKOPS Sender for Blister in Crested Butte, Colorado.

The new Rossignol BLACKOPS Sender fills an interesting role. It essentially serves as a replacement for the exceptionally popular Soul 7, it’s also positioned as the easier alternative to the new BLACKOPS Sender Ti, and now we’re chiming in on how it compares to both of those skis, and who we think will like it the most. Check out our full review & Deep Dive comparisons.
