Hot off the Presses: Two New Trek Mountain Bikes

Just launched today are two amazing new Trek models: The Fuel X29 and Remedy 29, combining Trek's industry leading suspension technologies with the handling of G2 geometry, producing the best trail 29ers on the market.


The Insider Details


Trek has been the leader in 29er production for more than a dozen years. In our opinion, they make the best big wheelers on the planet. A larger wheel holds its momentum better, so you keep rolling over rough stuff and maintain your speed through the corners. Increased wheel size also decreases the angle of attack. What does that mean to you, the rider? That makes obstacles seem smaller.

On a Trek 29er, your center of gravity is lower relative to the pivot point (the front axle). This results in a more stable feeling as you sit deeper in the cockpit.

How G2 Geometry comes into play


Conventional wisdom says 29ers have sleepy handling compared to 26" wheel bikes. Trek solved that with G2 Geometry, featuring a custom-offset fork and advanced frame geometry for precise handling at low speed without compromising high-speed stability. It's why Trek 29ers handle better than any others.

Frame Technology


We know that you don't want to think about the frame: how light it is, or the stiffness of the rocker link. You just want the performance that a well-designed ride can give you. EVO Link is Trek's evolution of the rocker link from the plate-to-bolt style use on most suspension bikes to a one-piece rocker link. This lighter link provides a stronger connection point between the front and rear triangles, creating a stiffer frame for greater control with minimal weight.

Trek's designers noticed that most suspension systems attach at the bottom of the shock to a fixed frame mount. That fixed mount can contribute to a harsh ride. They solved that with Full Floater, attaching the shock to two moving linkage points so it can better respond to bumps across a wide variety of terrain. It feels like more travel, but it's not. It's smarter travel.
