Will my bike have a curved top tube?

Smaller frames (XS and 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.

Internal Storage

Internal frame storage makes it easy to ditch the pack and still carry your ride essentials.

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.

RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft

RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft gives you unmatched grip and control with a shock that reacts to the terrain faster than anything else out there.

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.
