FeaturesGary Fisher Collection Innovative bikes imagined by Gary Fisher, built by Trek. Alpha Gold: Better Our premium lightweight aluminum alloy is continuously cold extruded and butted for weight reduction and superior strength. Frames built with Alpha Gold feature some degree of mechanical and hydroforming to create more complex industrial designs for even lighter weight, and are finished using Trek's smooth-weld finishing process. 29 Inch Wheels -More momentum A bigger wheel holds its momentum better. So you stay rolling over rough stuff and maintain your speed through the corners.Go faster, with ABP Race ABP Race offers all the benefits of our original ABP, in a lighter, narrower, faster setup. ABP Race also provides thru-axle stiffnss with a quick-release lever that can be oriented in any direction, independent of skewer tension. Slow-handling 29ers? Gary solved that. The many advantages of bigger wheels can come with a price: sleepy handling. Gary solved that, with G2. G2 Geometry is our system-wide solution to slow 29er handling. We've optimized frame geometry and fork geometry in tandem to create a bike that handles nimbly in tight, twisty singletrack without compromising high-speed stability. It's why our Fisher Collection 29ers handle better than any others. Suspension fork Shock-absorbing fork allows the front wheel to travel up and down over bumps while the handlebars stay steady, for a comfortable, controlled ride. Suspension lockout Locked suspension means your fork remains inactive, increasing pedaling efficiency. Perfect for extended road sections where efficiency is more important than bump absorption. Externally controlled lockout allows on-the-fly adjustment. Mechanical disc brakes Reliable stopping power in all conditions, including wet and muddy. 8-speed A broad gearing range suited to even the steepest grades. 29ers don't fit? We solved that. Many Trek models feature a wider range of sizes than the industry standard, to give a better fit to more riders.
