Trek certainly has some goodies lined up, in our second showing of whats new from the 2011 Trek line, we have the Remedy 9.9. Also showing inf France, the all mountain 2011 Trek Remedy uses a carbon fiber frame and Sram XX 10 speed drivetrain. Following is a custom valved fox suspension for the front and rear.
The 2011 Trek Remedy 9.9 features Trek’s OCLV technology, with carbon layup that allows the abuse the bike will take while riding it. Comparing weight to the previous year, the 2011 model is about 100 grams lighter. The chainstays are alloy (like last years), and the seatstays are designed with Trek’s mountain OCLV carbon. This factors in a lighter and overall strong frame.
Mashing a full floater suspension and active braking pivot (ABP), while the full floater is defined as non rigidly mounting the Fox RP23 DRCV shock, but is attached to a forward extension from the chainstay. For the ABP, the chain and seatstays pivot with the rear axle, lessening the amount of rotation with the rotor and caliper.
Available as a frame only, other models (not pictured) are the Remedy 9.8 and 9.7.
