It's right for you if...
You're an all-mountain junkie who lives for the fun only a long-travel trail bike can deliver. You love carving descents and throwing down style on new lines. You're a ride or die kind of mountain biker, and want a bike you can handle – not one that handles you.
The tech you get
A lightweight full OCLV Mountain Carbon, a Fox Performance 36 Float 160 mm fork and 150 mm of rear travel with a FOX Performance Float shock with Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft damper. Plus, a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain, Line 30 carbon wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive rear hub for fast engagement, a Bontrager Line Elite Dropper and SRAM G2 RSC hydraulic disc brakes.
The final word
Remedy 9.8 is a carbon long-travel bike with great suspension and a solid parts group that's light enough to stay quick on the climbs. It's a perfect all-around trail bike for riders who want a big, no-compromise build, and a quick, capable all-mountain ride.
favorite_borderWhy you'll love it
- The Remedy 9.8 ploughs through the gnarly stuff, but still likes getting loose on jumps and berms
- 'Wait for me,' said no Remedy rider ever – this bike has a lot of travel, but it's also extremely quick on the flats and climbs
- RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft works faster than a normal shock, so it tracks the ground better and keeps you in control
- It has all the latest tech that adds up to a great ride, like a 54-tooth Rapid Drive hub, Mino Link adjustable geometry and Boost148/110 hub spacing
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. The larger frames (M and ML) have a straight top tube because taller riders with longer legs typically don’t have the same issues with standover height.
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 set-up.
