5. Trek Remedy
Trek gave the Remedy the old, “longer, lower, slacker” treatment just over a year ago, nudging the Remedy further into true enduro-bike territory. With the Slash going 29er-only, Trek chose to make the Remedy 27.5-only to further differentiate the bikes from one another. However, just like the Slash, the Remedy features 150mm of rear suspension travel and 160mm of travel up front.
And while the Remedy also features Mino Link adjustable geometry, the shock configuration on the Remedy uses Trek’s Full Floater design. The head tube angle on the Remedy is 66.1° and the chainstays are 433mm long. Pricing starts at $2,999 for the aluminum Trek Remedy and tops out at $4,499 for the top-of-the-line carbon version.
