FeaturesGo 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 stiffness with a quick-release lever that can be oriented in any direction, independent of skewer tension. No-cut off-road seatmast Seatmast systems are lighter and offer an added level of compliance to a frame, allowing the rider more control and less fatigue. However, traditional seatmast systems require cutting the frame to achieve the perfect fit. With our no-cut system, riders can get the performance advantage of a seatmast system with the versatility and adjustability of a traditional seatpost. Fragile carbon? We solved that. A few years ago, we noticed that racers loved carbon fiber, but the everyday rider was still scared of taking carbon off-road. As the leaders in carbon fiber 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. OCLV Mountain seatstay Full OCLV Mountain Carbon seatstay reduces frame weight by about 100g. Harsh ride? We solved that. 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. Trek attaches the shock to the swingarms at the bottom and the linkage at the top giving the suspension a bottomless feel. 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. 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. BB90 BB90 is an OCLV technology that allows for a 90mm wide bottom bracket stance, with Net Molded precision-fit sockets and press-fit bearings. This wide stance allows greater surface area for the OCLV Carbon tubes, resulting in a stronger, stiffer platform that’s compatible with all major crank manufacturers. Combined with Mag EVO Link and hi-lo stays, BB90 helps your wheels track each other, rather than twist and turn with each bump. 2x10 With a 10-speed cassette and a 2-ring crankset, 2x10 delivers a full range of useable gears, with less weight and easier, smoother shifting. 135x5 rear wheel Traditional-width rear hub attaches to the frame using a standard or ABP-specific skewer
