FeaturesBomb downhill, with ABP DH ABP DH offers all the benefits of our original ABP, and features a wider hub stance to accommodate wider DH wheels. 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. Alloy EVO Link The EVO Link is Trek’s evolution of the rocker link from the plate-and-bolt style used on most suspension bikes today to a one-piece alloy rocker link. Down tube guard Replaceable external shield protects the down tube from trail debris. 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 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. ISCG mounts International Standard Chain Guide mounts offer easy chain guide installation and adjustment. Dual-crown fork Nothing beats the stiffness of a dual-crown fork—an absolute necessity for full-on DH racing. No Coil Change Necessary Trek's exclusive Hybrid Air technology creates the most tunable DH fork ever, and is lighter too. Use the base coil spring, and just add air to adjust your spring rate! 20mm thru axle Burly 20mm front thru axle offers ultimate steering precision Single ring and chain guide Downhill-specific drivetrain setup keeps it all together through the toughest gnarl. Need an attitude adjustment? We solved that. The Mino Link is an adjustment link located on the EVO Link. By flipping the Mino Link, riders can choose between slack or slacker geometry, without negatively affecting suspension performance. Tuned for You With our 2-position Mino Link, Cane Creek's 7-position headset, and a dual crown fork's 12mm adjustability, you can set up Session for any condition — race or park, pedal, or pop! 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.
