Feature tour


  1. Smooth, controlled braking

    Our patented ABP (Active Braking Pivot) keeps your suspension from stiffening up when you're on the brakes, giving you confident, steady control.

  2. DRCV all-terrain control

    Our two-chamber DRCV (Dual Rate Control Valve) shock gives you coil performance at air shock weight, for smooth, seamless, all-terrain control.

  3. G2: a better-handling 29er

    Advanced frame geometry and a custom offset fork give you precise handling at low speed without compromising high-speed stability.

  4. 26 or 29: take your pick

    Ride the way you want with all the great Trek technology you need in 26” or 29er versions. Each frame and suspension is optimized for its wheel size.

It's undoubtedly a fun bike on the trail and, it also seems highly capable. Toss in the very good pedaling performance and you end up with an immensely versatile machine.

Up and down, the EX is a solid choice—straight off the shop floor—for everything from quick lunchtime rides to full-on high-alpine adventures. If you are in the market for a trail bike, and are partial to long days in the saddle with equal emphases on climbing and descending, take a close look at the EX 29.
