Remedy 8 hits the sweet spot in performance and value in the all-mountain category. A lightweight alloy frame, SRAM GX Eagle component spec, a premium RockShox Lyrik 160mm fork, and 150mm rear shock make it the ideal ride for shredders who want ridiculously capable mountain bike for ridiculously fun trails.
It's right for you if...
You like getting rowdy on rough trails. Your wheels leave the ground often, and you want an alloy bike that's durable enough to handle whatever you throw at it. You don't shy away from gnarly trails. Your bike shouldn't either.
The tech you get
A light and tough Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame, a 160mm RockShox Lyrik RC fork, and 150mm of rear travel with an exclusive RE:aktiv rear shock. Plus, a SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, SRAM Guide R four-piston hydraulic disc brakes for more stopping power, a Bontrager Line dropper post, and Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive hub for fast engagement.
The final word
It's Trek's highest-end aluminum Remedy. The durable alloy frame, 27.5-inch wheels, and premium suspension make it the perfect ride to dish out and stand up to some serious abuse on the trail. If you're measuring your rides in rad per dollar, you won't do better than Remedy 8.
Why you'll love it
1 - This is Trek's best blend of performance and value in the Remedy family: an Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame with the same spec as much higher-end bikes makes this model a smokin' deal
2 - RE:aktiv damping keeps the shock firm for efficient pedaling and pumping, and instantly soaks up bumps to keep you in control
3 - It surfs down rough trails and conquers jumps with sure-footed confidence, then flies back to the top with its extra low 50-tooth climbing gear
4 - The shifter-style, underbar remote dropper post lever is super intuitive and easy to use
