Trek Remedy Review

For technical descents and tough climbs, the Trek Remedy range of mountain bikes provides a robust and consistent platform on which you can make the most of your mountain trail experience. With both 29ers and 27.5-inch bikes on offer, you have wheel size variables and tuned frames to choose from in this family.

Trek Remedy 7 27.5

An Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame offers 140mm of travel thanks to a RockShox Revelation RL fork and Fox Evolution Series Float rear shock. Tuned dampers and variable settings give the rider a greater degree of control.

The 27.5 wheelset consists of Bontrager alloy hubs and rims combined with XR3 Expert tyres with aramid bead technology. This wheel size sits between 26 and 29 inches, although falls closer to the former in terms of feel, with the idea being that you get a touch more stability when moving at high speeds.

Trek Remedy 8 29er

This model comes with a Fox Evolution Series 34 Float front suspension setup, paired with a similar model at the rear.

Shimano SLX and Deore XT components are used in the drivetrain, while Shimano SLX hydraulic disc brakes are a welcome inclusion on the Remedy 8 29.

The big 29er wheelset from Bontrager lets you roll easily across rougher terrain and the frame geometry takes this added size into account.

Trek Remedy 8 27.5

This Remedy 8 follows in the footsteps of its 29er stable mate for the components, but of course has smaller wheels and a frame setup to match the change.

You get the Bontrager Rhythm Elite seatpost for adjustability and comfort, while the Active Braking Pivot (ABP) helps the suspension and brakeset work together for additional smoothness and compliance.

Trek Remedy 9 29er

The Fox Factory fork comes with Kashima coating on the Remedy 9 29, making the suspension that little bit more responsive, slick and hardwearing.

Bontrager Rhythm Elite TLR wheels are added to the spec sheet, along with a Shimano XT Shadow Plus drivetrain and brakeset, on top of a RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post.

Trek Remedy 9 27.5

The Kashima coated Fox suspension is present and correct in this model, along with the Shimano XT Shadow Plus drivetrain and brakeset and the beefier Bontrager wheels.

Having a downtube guard means that the frame’s integrity is not as likely to be compromised by the constant pelting of debris when you are out on the trail.

Trek Remedy 9.8 27.5

The Remedy 9.8 27.5 puts alloy to one side and instead uses OCLV Mountain Carbon for the main frame and seatstay, with Carbon Armour providing more protection for the frame itself.

A Fox Performance Series 34 Float fork has pride of place up front, with rear suspension also pulled from this range.

The Shimano XT Shadow Plus drivetrain and brakeset are suitably impressive in their performance for this class of bike and the BB95 carbon bottom bracket provides top tier stiffness which is very important when it comes to ensuring solid and reliable power transfer.
