Trek announced a major update to its versatile long-travel trail bike. The all-new Remedy lineup stays true to its audience of rowdy all-mountain rippers, but now features more color options and an upgraded frame design that's stiffer, lighter, and accepts wider tires.
Upgraded Remedy frame
Remedy has long been the mountain bike of choice for riders who favor 27.5˝ wheels and long-travel suspension for carving steep descents and throwing down style on new lines. The new Remedy frame takes everything that has made the platform so popular and improves on it with subtle design changes that accommodate new trends in the trail bike scene.
All new Remedy models come stock with tires in the popular 27.5x2.6˝ size, and the frame now accepts 27.5x2.8˝ tires for additional traction and stability on rough trails.
The new frame also has a slightly steeper seat tube angle for more pedaling efficiency and a fixed lower shock mount that opens up the lower frame area to accommodate stronger, stiffer chainstays.
In addition to being 5% stiffer, the new Remedy frame is also 100 grams lighter than previous models and allows for an additional 10mm of dropper post insertion.
Exclusive frame and suspension tech
All new Remedy models feature 150mm of travel, 160mm forks, and a host of Trek-exclusive frame and suspension tech, including ABP, Straight Shot down tube, Knock Block frame defense, RE:aktiv, and RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft.
Parts and suspension upgrades
Remedy is built for a rowdy trail experience, and every model comes stock with parts that rip it up in rough, steep terrain. 2.6˝ tires, 1x12 SRAM Eagle drivetrains on all models, the new RockShox Lyrik with DebonAir fork on most models, and wide carbon rims on Remedy 9.8 and Remedy 9.9 make for a trail bike family that’s fast on rough singletrack and more capable than ever on big, all-mountain adventures.
Flagship Remedy 9.9
The marquee model of the Remedy lineup delivers top-shelf performance at an eye-level price point. The full OCLV Mountain Carbon Remedy 9.9 is equipped with a 160mm FOX Factory 36 Float fork, 150mm of rear suspension travel with Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft damper, Bontrager Line Carbon wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive rear hub, a 1x12 SRAM X01 Eagle drivetrain, and a Bontrager Line dropper post.
Additional color choices
Nearly all Remedy models are now available in two colorways: an understated paint scheme and the bolder Miami Green.
Remedy is available in five complete models and a carbon frameset through Trek’s wide network of retailers and on trekbikes.com. Prices for complete bikes range between $3,299.99 MSRP and $6,999.99 MSRP, with Remedy 7 and Remedy 9.9 at either end of the spectrum.
