This Top Fuel is built around the same ultra-light OCLV Mountain carbon fiber frame of the higher priced race-day versions. A tapered head tube and a threaded bottom bracket ensure precise handling and flex-free power delivery. Internal Control Freak cable routing brings a sleek look to the Top Fuel 9.7 while keeping cables clean and running smooth. A Knock Block steerer stop prevents the fork crown from impacting the frame's down tube in the event of a crash. Carrying your ride essentials is easy, thanks to the internal storage compartment found in the down tube. A BITS tool roll comes free with the Top Fuel 9.7 as well.Trek's rear Active Braking Pivot (or ABP) rear suspension geometry all but eliminates rear suspension movement due to braking or hard pedaling loads. Cool, huh? A one-piece EVO Link upper pivot link offers smooth operation for the air-adjustable Fox Performance Float unit. Up front, an air-adjustable Fox Rhythm 34 fork soaks up rock gardens and root "fun houses" with 120mm of travel.
Shimano supplies the 12-speed Deore XT shifter and clutch-equipped Deore XT rear derailleur, making every shift lightning-quick, no matter how rough the terrain gets. A 30T direct-mount chainring is installed on a Shimano Deore alloy crankset, while the Top Fuel 9.7's cassette is a 10-51T Shimano SLX unit for a massive gearing range.
The Top Fuel 9.7's rolling stock consists of Bontrager's tubeless-ready alloy Line Comp 30 wheels wrapped with 29x2.40" Bontrager XR4 Team Issue tubeless tires. Easy acceleration and confident grip make the Top Fuel 9.7 a brilliant racer in the twisties. Shimano 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes help reign in speed in all conditions, rain or shine. A TranzX dropper post gets the Arvada saddle out of the way on precipitous descents. Bontrager's alloy Elite 35mm stem, and alloy Line handlebars complete the Top Fuel 9.7.
Spring, summer, winter or fall, the physics remain the same: A lighter bike does everything wth less effort.
The Farley 9.6 is built around a superlight OCLV Mountain carbon fiber frame and OCLV carbon fiber Haru fork, making every alloy frame feel heavy and clumsy underneath you. The frameset is not only light, but also tremendously strong for razor-sharp handling and power delivery. Adjustable Stranglehold thru-axle rear dropouts let you alter the wheelbase up to 15mm to dial in handling in a wide range of trail conditions. A tapered head tube/steerer tube all but eliminates front-end flex, improving handling prowess further. Thru-axle fork dropouts add an extra dash of handling precision. The Farley 9.6 features a polymer Carbon Armor downtube shield to ward off rock strikes. Internal routing for a remote dropper post and external routing for hydraulic brake lines make servicing the Farley 9.6 simple. Bottle mounts aren't forgotten. We recommend hot cider in your water bottle.
A fatbike relies on enormous tires to gain control on snow, ice, slush, dirt and mud. The wider the tires, the better the grip. The previous generation of fatbikes used 26" wheels, proving a very large ground contact patch when combined with 3.8" tires. The Farley 9.6, however, uses 27.5" wheels, and 4.5" wide Barbegazi Team Issue tubeless-ready tires. This gives the Farley 9.6 even more grip for riding in slippery, snowy and messy conditions. Converting to tubeless eliminates over 2 pounds (!!) of rotating mass out of the wheels, making the Farley 9.6 even quicker off the start line and out of tight corners. Alloy SUNringlé Mulefüt 80 SL wheels are laced to Bontrager alloy hubs with stout 15mm thru-axle skewers. The rear hub's 108T RapidDrive freehub almost completely removes "free play"; the delay between pushing down on the pedals and actually getting power into the rear wheel. A pretty useful feature when traversing technical terrain or icy rock gardens.
SRAM produces the Farley 9.6's single-ring drivetrain, reducing mechanical complexity and weight. SRAM's 12-speed GX Eagle rear shifter, GX Eagle rear derailleur, 30T GX Eagle crankset, 11-50T Eagle cassette and GX Eagle chain all function seamlessly for lightning-quick operation and long service life. SRAM also supplies the Level TL hydraulic disc brakes that use DOT fluid for especially cold conditions. A Bontrage Arvada saddle sits atop an alloy seatpost, while an accessory-ready alloy Bontrager Elite Blendr stem, alloy Rhythm Comp handlebar and ESI Chunky grips complete the cockpit.
If you're an adventurer more than a racer, and want a hardtail mountain bike that's up for it, the Fathom 29 2 is ready.
The Fathom 29 2 is built around a light ALUXX-SL aluminum frame, ensuring excellent handling, climbing and pedaling response. A tapered OverDrive head tube adds a precise feel in tight and twisty singletrack, while a press-fit bottom bracket ensures flex-free power delivery. The slack 66 degree head tube angle makes every technical descent less tricky. Internal cable routing adds a clean look, too. With an air-adjustable Crest RCL suspension fork, the Fathom 29 2 can tackle rock gardens and technical terrain with confidence. The Crest RCL's 130mm of suspension travel handles rough rock gardens and stair-step descents much better than a short-travel XC fork. A 10-speed Shimano shifter operates a clutch-equipped Shimano Deore rear derailleur, adding fingertip precision to every gear change on the Fathom 29 2. Tektro supplies the hydraulic disc brakes and meaty 180mm rotors, adding excellent stopping power even in wet and muddy conditions. 30mm wide alloy 29'er wheels are shod with tubeless 29x2.5" Maxxis tires, boasting considerable grip over gravel, dirt and mud. A Giant Contact Switch dropper post gets the Romero saddle out of the way on steep "tip-ins" with a handlebar-mounted remote lever. Alloy Contact handlebars and stem complete this trail-ready machine for the riders who have no finish line.
A few short years ago, most riders were doubtful that a hardtail cross-country bike could get much better. Frames were lighter than ever. Components worked better and lasted longer. 29'er wheels and high-performance tires did a better job of helping the rider stay upright at top speed. How could Trek possibly improve the racing hardtail?
The designers in Waterloo, WI looked at their award-winning Domane road bike (and Boone cyclocross bike) and wondered if their IsoSpeed decoupler could improve performance on the trail as much as it did on the road. They were right. The result is the Procaliber cross-country hardtail. Meticulously built with the right components, the Procaliber is an exceptional machine for all-out racing.
Trek's OCLV Mountain carbon fiber frame boasts astonishing torsional strength as well as feather-lightness. Power transfer from the crankset to the wheels is lightning-quick, delivering trail-conquering speed and acceleration. The bike's overall geometry gives it nimble handling for race day performance, or for just cutting loose on local singletrack.
Razor-sharp handling and excellent power transfer are all well and good, but the IsoSpeed decoupler found at the seat tube/down tube juncture is the secret to rider comfort. And as we all know, comfort = power and power = speed. Staying fresher for longer allows every rider to give their best performance, especially at the finish line. Power transfer is improved with a press-fit PF92 bottom bracket, while a tapered head tube adds handling precision, especially on bumpy terrain. Internal cable routing keeps the Procaliber 9.6 looking clean, too. There's even a polymer downtube guard that protects the paint from "roost" flying off the front tire. Up front, an air-adjustable RockShox Recon Gold RL suspension fork helps tackle rock gardens and technical terrain with 100mm of travel. Don't need the suspension on gravel sections? A remote lockout lever lets you shut it off without taking your hands off the bars. Cool, huh?All this technology has been put through the wringer at World Cup mountain bike races by Trek's Factory Racing Team. If the Procaliber will put up with that, we're sure it'll impress you...
The components haven't been overlooked on the Procaliber 9.6, and they're all race-tested, too. 12-speed Shimano SLX shifters operate a Shimano Deore XT rear derailleur, ensuring lightning-quick operation in the heat of battle. A Shimano alloy crankset with a 30T chainring and a 10-51T Shimano SLX cassette boast a massive gearing range for roller-coaster courses and all-day adventures. Trek didn't scrimp on the Procaliber 9.6's wheelset, giving it a set of tubeless-ready alloy Bontrager Kovee Comp 23 wheels wrapped with grippy tubeless Bontrager XR2 Team Issue tires. Front and rear thru-axle hubs and Boost 110/148 hub spacing adds lateral strength to the wheels, improving handling even further. A Rapid Drive 108 rear free hub all but eliminates wasted "free play" between coasting and accelerating. Easy speed, bags of traction and proven durability are all found here! Helping to reign in speed -rain or shine- is the job of Shimano's MT4100 hydraulic disc brakes. A Bontrager Arvada saddle, alloy 2-bolt Bontrager Comp seatpost, accessory-ready alloy Rhythm stem and alloy Comp handlebar complete the Procaliber 9.6.
