The newest model from Trek impressed us with its steady handling and great parts. The 120mm-travel Lush SL encouraged our testers to let off the brakes and take faster lines over—instead of around—tricky rock gardens. “It was delightful in tight corners,” raved one tester. The APB rear suspension tracked effortlessly over bumpy trails and a flick of the shock’s ProPedal lever turned the Lush into a speedy climber.
The Lush Carbon is an extremely well-rounded package. When two key items, suspension and fit, come together so nicely on a bike, it steps up your riding game. So get ready to be more aggressive on the trail and manhandle this girl's bike through a variety of terrain. But you'd better prepare yourself for more stink eye from the other chicks as you pass them on this tight little machine.
