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 OCLV Mountain Carbon frame that's feathery on the climbs yet stiff and sure-footed on the descents, Bontrager Line Carbon 30 wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive rear hub for fast engagement, a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain, RockShox 160mm Lyrik RCT3 fork, and a RockShox Deluxe RT3 RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft shock that responds faster than any other shock on the market.
The final word
Remedy 9.8 is a capable carbon long travel bike that's light enough to stay quick on the climbs. It's the perfect all-around trail bike for riders who seek out big, technical trails and want a quick, capable all-mountain bike that can handle them.
favorite_borderWhy you'll love it
- Remedy 9.8 plows 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 carbon wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive hub, Mino Link adjustable geometry, and Boost148/110 hub spacing

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.
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.

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.
