Pick-up shuttle runs, riding lifts, pushing up for more, this rig is down. Trek's Session 8 Park takes an Alpha Platinum aluminum frame and adds a RockShox Kage RC coil delivering 190mm of travel through Trek's Full Floater suspension design. Thanks to the ABP DH rear end, all that suspension remains active even when you're hard on the brakes. Now let's move to the front, the much-loved BoXXer leads the charge with 200mm of plush coil-sprung travel. And that's not all. The specs are pure DH with Truvativ cranks, an MRP chainguide, DT Swiss wheels, and SRAM gearing. Then add a healthy dose of Bontrager Rhythm gear, Avid Code discs and the proper 2.35-inch Bonty rubber, you'll realize the Session is ready for pinning it down the steeps and stomping huge lines. We'll meet you at the top of A-Line.

Trek's EVO rocker link is a one-piece, forged-aluminum 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.


For every full-suspension mountain bike that they sell, Trek donates $10 to the IMBA to help build new trails. Join the IMBA today!

Comments:

Great bike that does it all. From jumps to techy steep lines. Handles everything with confidence I was disappointed that the bolts did come loose after the first ride. The bolt holding rear triangle to the shock came loose and almost fell off. At first the rear derailer kept coming loose and the first two rides and almost fell off as well. It meant I couldn't shift after just a half day of riding. I had to have the bike shop put tons of lock tite on the bolt to keep it from coming loose.
