Nothing else like it
Supercaliber?s unique frame design ditches traditional suspension hardware so there?s less weight, less maintenance and less lateral flex. IsoStrut connects the mainframe to the pivot-less seat stays to offer about 60 mm of rear wheel travel. This design offers a unique blend of efficiency, traction and fatigue-fighting compliance that keeps racers fresh and in control.
IsoStrut integrated suspension gives you just enough travel to stay in control. It's fully tunable like a standard rear shock, but without the weight penalty of a full suspension bike.
OCLV Mountain Carbon
Trek's mountain-specific carbon is engineered to withstand the extreme demands of off-road racing. Advanced analysis allows our designers to create a frame with the best blend of light weight, responsiveness and just enough compliance in the seat stays to eliminate the need for a heavy rear pivot system.
Straight Shot w/Knock Block
Trek's Straight Shot frame design optimises the stiffness-to-weight ratio for a more responsive ride. You'll be able to push harder and stay more planted on your line when the going gets rough.
Shimano Deore brings even more adventure with a wider range of gear choices for the steep stuff, the fast stuff and the fun. With smooth riding, improved chain stability and sharp shifting, Deore heightens your mountain biking confidence and control so you can focus on the trail and enjoy the ride.
You almost forgot your pedals
This bike doesn?t come with pedals because you'll have a better ride if you choose your own. See the pedal guide to find the best pedals for your riding style. Want pedals built for the race? We recommend clipless MTB pedals for control and efficiency.
