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 160mm fork, and 150mm 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
- 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 a 54-tooth Rapid Drive hub, Mino Link adjustable geometry, and Boost148/110 hub spacing

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.
