FeaturesYou choose, with ABP Convert ABP Convert offers all the benefits of our original ABP, and comes with interchangeable wheel interface options so you can swap from a 142x12mm rear wheel back to a traditional style 135x5mm wheel. 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. 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 use full Fork travel? We solved that. Ever notice how your fork only really uses about 90% of the travel? A couple years ago, we noticed that too—almost every rider we saw on the trail had an O-ring that just wouldn’t hit the fork’s crown. So we dug a little deeper, strapped on the data acquisition device and turned on the dyno. We found that different types of terrain require different things from a fork. Ride bigger lines, flow through braking bumps with ease, and ride with more control. More control, all the time The dual chambers in a DRCV fork seamlessly trade off to give you exactly the suspension you need for every inch of your ride. • Small bumps are easily absorbed. No more jarring high-frequency vibrations. • Uses more mid-stroke travel more often, so you can carry more speed through braking bumps, flow through rock gardens, hold your line at speed. • Awesome big hit control. With DRCV in the fork, you get consistent use of full travel. That’s more control, all the time. 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. 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. 135x5 rear wheel Traditional-width rear hub attaches to the frame using a standard or ABP-specific skewer 15QR A 15mm front thru axle makes steering more precise for more control, and the quick release feature allows for easy wheel removal. 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. ISCG mounts International Standard Chain Guide mounts offer easy chain guide installation and adjustment. 3x10 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.
