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.

2011 Trek Mountain Bikes look very promising, while one of the top tier models is the Scratch Air. The 2011 Scratch Air uses a custom tube rebound setting with VX Can RP23, DT Swiss wheels, and Fox 36 Talas fork.

First debut was in France, the 2011 Trek Scratch Air aesthetically looks tailored to trail riding, rather than freeride as previous years. Some of the highlights for 2011 are the chain retention device followed with a 2 ring setup, adding versatility. Downtube guard is similar, and the chainstay protection is removable. One piece EVO link, and as mentioned before, the integrated downtube guard can be purchased aftermarket, and fit aluminum Remedy and Scratch models from 2008-2011. More spectacular pictures below.

Trek unveils the new 2011 Madone Road Bike lineup, which claimed by Trek are lighter, pricing is wide spread, and more features. The Trek 6 series SSL 2011 which is apart of the Madone series is 100 grams lighter than last years model, plus the 5 series models received some big changes as well.

The new 2011 Trek Madone 6 Series SSL is lighter due to a new carbon fiber used by Trek called OCLV Hex SL.

Trek’s product engineer Chris Pomering stated “you won’t see many others using it due to the fact that the US Government declares it Defense grade material, and therefore it is prohibited to be shipped outside the NATO alliance”.
