Trek Remedy 7 Mountain bike 2020 Review

The Trek Remedy is among the best mountain bikes you can get. It has a great reputation for adequately coping with the rigors and shocks of mountain biking. The design speaks for itself. High quality, durable platinum aluminum body frame, dependable hydraulic disc brakes, and a shock-absorbing fork makes it popular among passionate mountain bikers. The 29+ tires are specifically designed to ensure grip on any mountain trail surface.

Features

Straight shot geometry

This feature enables mountain bikers to ride on the trail surface at a constant speed and stability. This is because of the even distribution of body weight across the bike. As a result, the bike is able to respond swiftly when in tight corners. To either slacken or tighten the geometry, you make use of the integrated Mino Link flip. This has no effect on the optimal performance of the suspension fork.

Tubeless tires

Remedy 7 is equipped with tubeless-ready tires and rims. This is a guarantee that the tires are well suited to cope with the different terrains encountered during mountain rides. They provide great surface grip, resistant to unexpected punctures, and are very light. The lightness and traction ensure great bike control, body balance, and momentum. The hydraulic disc brakes also complement the tires, by providing sufficient stopping power.

Efficient braking technology

This mountain bike comes with an efficient pedaling and braking system. This is courtesy of the ingenious braking technology by Trek, known as Active Braking Pivot (ABP). This brake suspension technology facilitates smooth and responsive braking power when needed, without skids. It also absorbs all-terrain shocks and promotes more riding stability. This enables the biker to have smooth control on any terrain and in tight corners without panic.
