Technical trails demand skills and fitness, and your bike needs to be able to keep up. Trek's Remedy 8 29 laughs at high-speed descents, techy climbs, enduro runs, and pretty much anything else you can think of. The aluminum frame sports an E2 head tube and a 142x12mm rear thru-axle for line-holding stiffness. When it's time to climb, the ABP and Full Floater rear suspension allows for efficient pedaling and mind-boggling traction. Wherever you are, the 140mm Fox Performance Float fork up front and shock out back are doing what you want, when you want. You're armed with SRAM X1 1x11 gearing and Deore discs for first-rate shifting and confident braking, tubeless-ready Bontrager wheels, and a legit Bonty bar, stem, and saddle. And finally, with a KS dropper post, no matter how sick the terrain, you have the Remedy.

Trek’s premium lightweight aluminum is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points for ultimate weight reduction and superior strength. Frames built with Trek’s Alpha Platinum aluminum are hydroformed to create the most sophisticated shapes for the lightest weight, and are finished using their smooth-weld process.

Trek's Full Floater shock mount boasts two separate linkages that allow the shock to float through its range of action for seemingly bottomless travel and excellent tracking over every type of terrain.
Trek's EVO link
Trek's EVO rocker link is a one-piece, forged-magnesium linkage that drastically increases rear-end stiffness and decreases total frame weight, too.
Trek's E2 head tube is 1 1/2 inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8 inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems and not adding much weight.
Trek's G2 Geometry (version 2 of Gary Fisher's Genesis Geometry) delivers the ultimate ride for every trail. Genesis earned rave reviews for awesome handling on climbs and descents thanks to a long top tube paired with a short stem that moves the front wheel forward for top-notch confidence and control, while short chainstays add phenomenal traction. G2 Geometry takes these handling traits to the next level by boosting control on tight singletrack and technical climbs, too. This is accomplished by increasing the amount of fork offset (reducing trail), which makes G2 bikes steer more quickly, and by shortening the reach, which puts more weight on the front wheel for even better control and confidence. The two animations above showcase how G2 Geometry provides the perfect ride.
