It's right for you if...
You like getting rowdy on rough trails. One or both of your wheels leave the ground often, and you want an alloy bike that's tough enough to handle whatever you throw at it. You don't shy away from gnarly trails. Your bike shouldn't either.
The tech you get
A light and tough aluminum frame, an upgraded 160mm RockShox Lyrik Select+ fork with a plush DebonAir spring and Charger 2.1 RC damper that gives you more adjustment and control, and 150mm of rear travel with a Super Deluxe Select+ rear shock. Plus, a SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain with leg-saving lower climbing gears, and Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels.
The final word
It's our highest-end aluminum Remedy. The beefy alloy frame, 27.5˝ wheels, and premium suspension make it the perfect ride to dish out and stand up to some serious abuse on the trail. If you're measuring your rides in rad per dollar, you won't do better than Remedy 8.
favorite_borderWhy you'll love it
- This is our best blend of performance and value in the Remedy family: an alloy frame with the same spec as much higher-end bikes makes this model a smokin' deal
- 29er wheels are great for other people, but 27.5˝ wheels are livelier and more fun on rugged trails
- It surfs down rough trails and conquers jumps with sure-footed confidence, then flies back to the top with its extra low 52-tooth climbing gear
- Mino Link lets you make small adjustments to your geometry quickly and easily, even mid-ride
- Wider is more stable: Remedy has clearance for up to 27.5x2.8˝ tires
Will my bike have a curved top tube?
Smaller frames (S) have a top tube that dips down as it approaches the seat tube. This design makes for a lower standover height, which is good for shorter riders because it allows them to straddle their bike more easily. Larger frames (M and up) have a straight top tube because taller riders with longer legs typically don’t have the same issues with standover height.
Alpha Platinum Aluminum
Our premium lightweight aluminum is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points, and hydroformed into sophisticated tube shapes for maximum strength and minimum weight.
Control Freak Cable Management
The lightest, quietest, most versatile cable management system allows any combination of shift, brake, lockout, and dropper post lines to be routed through the frame for clean looks and the ultimate custom setup.
Wider dropouts (110mm front, 148mm rear) give you the stiffness of a 27.5" wheel with all the benefits of a 29" wheel, and Boost148 in the rear lets you run wider tires and a larger chainring without affecting q-factor and pedaling efficiency.

Sizing & Tech
The charts below show our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8˝, for example, will fit on the same size bike. The best way to find your perfect fit is to consult the experts at your local retailer.
