FeaturesFragile carbon? We solved that. A few years ago, we noticed that racers loved carbon fiber, but the everyday rider was still scared of taking carbon off-road. As the leaders in carbon fiber technology, we knew we could offer the world a better solution. So we took our best engineers and designers, and asked for better carbon, built for off-road use. The result? OCLV Mountain Carbon. Robust = heavy? We solved that. E2 is the evolution of the traditional 1-1/8" headset to a tapered head tube, fork, and headset system. E2 tapers from a 1.5" lower to a 1-1/8" upper headset to provide more material where it matters most, resulting in a stronger, lighter frame with point-and-shoot control. 135x5 rear wheel Traditional-width rear hub attaches to the frame using a standard or ABP-specific skewer BB90 Wider is better BB90 is the widest bottom bracket available on a road bike. This Trek-exclusive carbon BB makes the frame lighter, stiffer, and quicker to accelerate. Cable clutter? We solved that. Internal Control Routing is yet another next-level mountain bike frame development from Trek. No more complicated mess of cables and housing, no more zip ties. No-cut off-road seatmast Seatmast systems are lighter and offer an added level of compliance to a frame, allowing the rider more control and less fatigue. However, traditional seatmast systems require cutting the frame to achieve the perfect fit. With our no-cut system, riders can get the performance advantage of a seatmast system with the versatility and adjustability of a traditional seatpost. 2x10 With a 10-speed cassette and a 2-ring crankset, 2x10 delivers a full range of useable gears, with less weight and easier, smoother shifting. 26" wheels The MTB standard for versatility, light weight, and maneuverability.
