Features

Nothing else like it

Supercaliber’s unique frame design ditches traditional suspension hardware so there’s less weight, less maintenance and less lateral flex. IsoStrut connects the mainframe to the pivot-less seat stays to offer about 60 mm of rear wheel travel. This design offers a unique blend of efficiency, traction and fatigue-fighting compliance that keeps racers fresh and in control.

IsoStrut

IsoStrut integrated suspension gives you just enough travel to stay in control. It’s fully tunable like a standard rear shock, but without the weight penalty of a full suspension bike.

OCLV Mountain Carbon

Trek’s mountain-specific carbon is engineered to withstand the extreme demands of off-road racing. Advanced analysis allows our designers to create a frame with the best blend of light weight, responsiveness and just enough compliance in the seat stays to eliminate the need for a heavy rear pivot system.

Straight Shot w/Knock Block

Trek’s Straight Shot frame design optimises 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.
