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.

The Walkthrough

favorite_borderWhy you'll love it

  1. 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
  2. 29er wheels are great for other people, but 27.5˝ wheels are livelier and more fun on rugged trails
  3. 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
  4. Mino Link lets you make small adjustments to your geometry quickly and easily, even mid-ride
  5. Wider is more stable: Remedy has clearance for up to 27.5x2.8˝ tires


Features

Active Braking Pivot

Active Braking Pivot allows our engineers to tune how the suspension reacts to acceleration and braking forces independently. That means you get more confident control when you need it most.

Straight Shot w/Knock Block

Trek's Straight Shot frame design optimizes the stiffness-to-weight ratio for a more responsive ride. You'll be able to push harder and stay more planted on your line when the going gets rough.

Will my bike have a curved top tube?

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.

Sizing & fit

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 Trek retailer.
