Features ABP: Other full suspension systems firm up under braking, reducing your control when you need it most. Trek’s patented Active Braking Pivot solves that by keeping your suspension active whether you’re on the brakes or off. The ABP axle is fully convertible between 142×12 and 135×5 standards, offers easy wheel installation, and is at least 20% stiffer than any open dropout design. DRCV: Most full suspension air-shock bikes use small-volume canisters for pedaling efficiency. Unfortunately, they don’t have the best big-hit control. Others use less efficient, larger volume shocks, or complex multi-shock systems with cumbersome controls. Our solution: Dual Rate Control Valve (DRCV) technology. One shock, two chambers, no compromise. DRCV seamlessly adjusts its air volume based on the size bump you encounter. You get supple feel on the small bumps, seamless control over midsize bumps and harsh hits with less rear-wheel hang-up, and seemingly bottomless travel on the rough stuff so big hits seem to disappear. All this, with the pedaling efficiency of a small-volume shock. Full Floater: Most suspension systems attach the bottom of the shock to a fixed frame mount. That fixed mount can contribute to a harsh ride. We solved that with Full Floater, attaching the shock to two moving linkage points so it can better respond to bumps across a wide variety of terrain. It feels like more travel, but it’s not. It’s smarter travel. EVO Link: EVO Link is Trek’s evolution of the rocker link from the plate-and-bolt style used on most suspension bikes to a one-piece rocker link. This lighter link provides a stronger connection point between the front and rear triangles, creating a stiffer frame for greater control with minimal weight. Alpha Platinum Aluminum: Our premium lightweight aluminum is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points for ultimate weight reduction and superior strength. Frames built with Alpha Platinum are hydroformed to create the most sophisticated shapes for the lightest weight, and are finished using Trek’s smooth-weld finishing process. Down tube guard: Replaceable external shield protects the down tube from trail debris. E2 tapered head tube: E2 is the evolution of the traditional 1-1/8″ headset to a tapered head tube, fork, and headset system. E2 tapers from a 1.5″ lower to a 1-1/8″ upper headset to provide more material where it matters most, resulting in a stronger, lighter frame with point-and-shoot control. Fully integrated head tube: A fully integrated head tube eliminates the need for headset cups, reducing overall weight without sacrificing performance. Dropper post internal routing: Dropper posts are great for while-you-ride seat height adjustments, but cable routing has always been an issue. RockShox Reverb Stealth routes the hydraulic housing directly through the frame for the sleekest setup you’ve seen. Press-fit bottom bracket: Press-fit BB is a bottom bracket shell that allows the bearings to press into the frame rather than threading in as on standard bottom brackets. This provides a wider stance for the frame’s tubing juncture, resulting in a stronger frame. This wider stance also mimics the benefits of an OCLV Carbon-only technology, BB95. Internal derailleur routing: Sleek ports at the head tube and near the seat tube let you run your derailleur housing directly through the frame, keeping the cable protected from the elements and your bike running smooth, clean, and quiet. ISCG mounts: International Standard Chain Guide mounts offer easy chain guide installation and adjustment.
