Harsh ride? We solved that -Full Floater
Most suspension systems attach the shock to a moving linkage at the top, and a fixed frame mount on the bottom. That fixed mount can contribute to a harsh ride. Full Floater attaches the shock to two moving linkage points on the frame, for greater response over a wide variety of terrain. It feels like more travel—but it's not. It's smarter travel
Alpha Platinum: Best
Our high-performance lightweight aluminum alloy is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points for ultimate weight reduction and superior strength.
Frames built with Alpha Platinum feature a high degree of hydroforming to create the most complex industrial designs for the lightest weight, and are finished using Trek's smooth-weld finishing process.
Can't control big hits? We solved that.
Most full suspension air-shock bikes use a small-volume canister. A small-volume shock is efficient, because it doesn't move up and down excessively when you pedal. But it doesn't have the best big-hit control.
To compensate, some companies use a less-efficient larger-volume shock. Others try to strike a balance with cumbersome manual controls or with fussy, overly complex shock systems. So to gain control, you either lose efficiency, or you lose simplicity.
DRCV shocks solve that.DRCV seamlessly adjusts its air volume based on the size bump you encounter. You get supple feel on the small bumps, seamless control over midsize bumps and harsh hits, with less rear-wheel hang-up. Seemingly bottomless travel on the rough stuff. Big hits seem to disappear. All this, with the pedaling efficiency of a small-volume shock.
Small Bumps: DRCV is supple and controlled like any other Fox RP2 or RP23 rear shock at sag and over small bumps.
Midsize bumps: This is where DRCV shines. At 50% of compression, the shock opens up more air volume. Where other shocks wallow and stick, DRCV offers seamless control through the nastiest terrain you can find.
Finish: Throughout the final stages of compression, DRCV behaves like a larger- volume air shock.
Return: As the shock returns to its idle state, the shock closes the secondary air chamber to return to its small-bump compliance.
A stronger, lighter rocker
EVO Link is Trek’s evolution of the rocker link from the plate-and-bolt style used 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.
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
A 15mm front thru axle makes steering more precise for more control, and the quick release feature allows for easy wheel removal.
Press-fit bottom bracket
Press-fit BB is a bottom bracket shell that allows the bearings to press into the frame rather than thread in like standard bottom brackets.
This provides a wider stance for the frame’s tubing juncture, resulting in a stronger frame. This wider stance also simulates benefits of an OCLV Carbon-only technology, BB95.
With a 10-speed cassette and a 3-ring crankset, 3x10 delivers a closer-ratio drivetrain, a wider range of gears, and increased efficiency and durability.|
