Trek 2018 Bikes
Great news for us all, is that Trek have released their 2018 bikes early and from what we have seen so far, its going to be a great year for Trek bikes! here a few key bikes and changes we have picked up on…
new Trek Emonda, lighter than before, disc brake options, more direct mount brakes, what’s not to like of Trek’s lightweight road bikes?! We currently have in stock (21/07/2017) the Emonda SL 6, which has the new fantastic Shimano Ultegra R8000 groupset on. The base carbon Emonda S has gone, but to replace those models we have great priced Tiagra equipped SL frame and higher equipped aluminium ALR models coming with new carbon Bontrager wheels. Other Trek Emonda models are on the way and by mid-September we expect most of the range to be in store.
To run alongside the lightweight Emonda, we also carry in store super popular Trek Domane – this has been one of our bestselling road bikes over the last few years and now with front ISO speed, 28 & 32 C tires, this road bike just loves covering the miles with speed and comfort!
For those that like to ride off road, the Trek Fuel EX 8 is proving to be very popular for us so far, with choices of the new SRAM GX 12 Speed Eagle, Shimano XT 2×11 and 29 or 27 Plus wheels, we should have a bike that can just about do anything! Carbon models with project one paint options available too for those that fancy something custom and more tricked out!!!
Fitted to the Trek Slash, carbon EX and carbon remedy models is the new Thru-Shock from Trek. This new feature is availably exclusively to Trek bikes only for 2 years. You can read about thru-shaft here on pink bike. https://www.pinkbike.com/news/trek-presents-reaktiv-thru-shaft-technology.html
If you haven’t already noticed, but 29″ wheels are now working they way into the DH scene and with Trek bikes being one on of the 1st major bike brands to get behind 29er, they are also one of the 1st to make a 29er DH rig. Available as a frame and fork only, if you are interested be quick as these will only be made in small numbers!
Trek have updated their e-mountain bikes for 2018 and it’s great to see Trek bikes have continued to use the excellent Bosch power units – with integrated batteries across most of the Powerfly range which helps lower the weight for better control of the bike, each bike is fitted with the largest capacity (500wH) battery powering the most powerful motor (performance CX), all controlled using the neat Purion unit! Each bike that leaves the store, is updated by our Bosch trained workshop too!
