The trail waits in anticipation, the woods are quiet, then WHOOSH! The sound of tires pierces the silence. Big wheels roll over the roots and 3-inch-wide tires rip through berm. The 29er has grown up from its XC roots with Trek's Stache 5. Trek loaded the aluminum frame with all the marks of a fully capable trail bike: G2 trail geometry, E2 tapered head tube, 92mm bottom bracket, dropper-post routing and a Boost 148 rear end. That 148mm-wide rear end is enhanced by short chainstays that make this 29er rail twists and turns like that's its job. Which it is. The specs are just as legit with Race Face cranks powering Shimano 1 x 10 gearing and a clutch rear derailleur that virtually eliminates chain slap and drops. Ladies and gentlemen, the the 29er has evolved!
Trek’s premium lightweight aluminum is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points for ultimate weight reduction and superior strength. Frames built with Trek’s Alpha Platinum aluminum are hydroformed to create the most sophisticated shapes for the lightest weight, and are finished using their smooth-weld process.
|Trek's G2 Geometry (version 2 of Gary Fisher's Genesis Geometry) delivers the ultimate ride for every trail. Genesis earned rave reviews for awesome handling on climbs and descents thanks to a long top tube paired with a short stem that moves the front wheel forward for top-notch confidence and control, while short chainstays add phenomenal traction. G2 Geometry takes these handling traits to the next level by boosting control on tight singletrack and technical climbs, too. This is accomplished by increasing the amount of fork offset (reducing trail), which makes G2 bikes steer more quickly, and by shortening the reach, which puts more weight on the front wheel for even better control and confidence. The two animations above showcase how G2 Geometry provides the perfect ride.|
