You know that unthinkably tough line that gets you every time? Trek's Remedy 9.8 29 doesn't. Either roll over it or air it out, as this 29er features 140mm of front/rear travel from a big Fox 36 Float up front and a beautifully responsive Float RE:aktiv shock out back. Rip the ups, pin the downs, this carbon frame sports an E2 head tube and thru-axles at both ends for sniper-like precision and quick cornering. Powering you uphill is a 2x11 XT group, clamping down on your speed are legendary XT discs, and you take care of business with Roam 30 wheels with stiffness-enhancing Boost axle spacing on both ends. They're wider and stiffer, making 29er wheels corner and handle quick and zesty. Even more control is yours thanks to the Reverb dropper post, wide, carbon bar, and stubby stem. When it comes to unthinkably tough lines up or down, this is the Remedy.

For a clean dropper post setup, Trek uses RockShox’s Reverb Stealth dropper seatpost and internal frame routing. The housing runs inside the frame for a clean look and zero hose issues as the saddle moves up and down.

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.
