More momentumA bigger wheel holds its momentum better. So you stay rolling over rough stuff and maintain your speed through the corners.
Better angle of attackIncreased wheel size decreases the angle of attack. That means bigger wheels make obstacles seem smaller.
Greater stabilityOn a 29er, your centre of gravity is lower relative to the pivot point (the front axle). This results in a more stable feeling as you sit deeper in the cockpit.
Improved tractionA 29" tyre has a longer contact patch. This greatly improves climbing and cornering ability, and it helps the bike float over soft terrain such as sand.
29er too flexy? We solved that.Bigger is better. Oversized hub, flanges, and end caps create a flex-free 29" wheel capable of chewing through technical terrain, for more confidence in rough stuff and in the corners.
FCC wheelTaller and wider flanges create a wider, stronger hub-to-rim bracing angle.
FCC endcapsOversized 25mm endcaps strengthen the hub-to fork interface for less front-end deflection.
FCC hub shellOversized hub supports taller flanges for a robust, flex-free setup.
You choose, with ABP ConvertABP Convert offers all the benefits of our original ABP, and comeswith interchangeable wheel interface options so you can swap from a 142x12mm rear wheel back to a traditional style 135x5mm wheel.
Fragile carbon? We solved that.A few years ago, we noticed that racers loved carbon fibre, but the everyday rider was still scared of taking carbon off-road. As the leaders in carbon fibre 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.
Built for off-roadOCLV Mountain Carbon takes our patented OCLV process and figures in the rigours of off-road use. We reinforce the right areas with unique materials, but preserve the lightweight and great carbon feel. Today, every carbon mountain bike we make is built using OCLV Mountain Carbon—carbon that’s tougher than the trail, without the added weight.
OCLV Mountain developmentOur team of world-class carbon engineers and designers has pioneered new processes, built new tools, obtained over 52 carbon-specific patents, and built more carbon bikes than any other manufacturer.They use sophisticated tools, software, and the deepest carbon fibre know-how in the industry to determine what type of carbon to use, how to layer and shape it, where to reinforce it, and how to provide specific performance characteristics.
OCLV Mountain chainstayFull OCLV Mountain Carbon chainstay reduces frame weight by about 100g and dramatically increases stiffness.

Carbon ArmorSometimes you need a little extra protection, so we've developed a light, tough external shield.Our Carbon Armor polymer shield provides reassurance to riders who know their down tube is bound to take some abuse.
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 optimised 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.
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.

Thru-axle stiff, QR quickOur robust, confidence-inspiring 142mm hub + 12mm thru-axle system is about 35% stiffer than an open dropout design.The wider hub is easier to install than a conventional 135x5mm system, thanks to a tabbed guide in the frame's dropout.And for those riders who still want to use their 135mm thru-axle wheels, a conversion kit is available through your local retailer. But this new system is so easy to use, we’re confident you’ll stick with it.
Direct-mount front derailleurA traditional front derailleur attaches to the frame with a band clamp. Our direct-mount front derailleur attaches directly to the frame using a solid, flat interface.This fastening method ensures crisper, more accurate front shifting.
BB95BB90 is an OCLV technology that allows the bottom bracket a 95mm wide stance with Net Molded precision-fit sockets and press-fit bearings, compatible with all major crank manufacturers.This wide stance allows greater surface area for the OCLV Carbon tubes, resulting in a stronger, stiffer platform. Combined with Mag EVO Link and hi-lo stays, BB95 helps your wheels track each other, rather than twist and turn with each bump.
2x10With a 10-speed cassette and a 2-ring crankset, 2x10 delivers a full range of useable gears, with less weight and easier, smoother shifting.
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.
