Slice's depend on the year. I assume you are talking about the current model, so my experience won't help you much; I have a 2007 Slice, which is still the aluminum frame. I understand they went to the carbon frame in 2008 (or 2009, not sure).
Anyways, I love my Slice, but I have made some big changes to the cockpit, raising up the elbow pads, and getting the j bend aero extensions. The rest of the bike is great, taken me through two IM's so far, along with numerous other distance races. Climbs well, as well; completed the Aubrurn Half (aka 'World Toughest', with 6000' of climbing in 56 miles of bike) I do have a compact double front with an 11-28 rear, which helps with the climbing.
Overall, I am quite happy with it.
