There are bike tours, and then there are epic adventures. The 1120 is the right bike for pushing your boundries.
The 1120 can be seen as an entirely new category of adventure touring machine from Trek. It defies the conventions of traditional touring bikes with gigantic tires, a single-ring drivetrain and a dropper post. But it also maintains the practical and durable elements of front and rear racks, internal cable routing and extra accessory eyelets. The 1120's more upright position and stable handling is perfect for long days -or weeks- in the saddle. The 1120's Alpha Platinum aluminum frame may resemble the Trek Stache mountain bike, but the fit and geometry is definately different. A longer wheelbase improves stability while attacking unpaved surfaces and potholed roads. The adjustable Stranglehold thru-axle dropouts -also found on the Stache and Checkpoint- can adjust the handling further when adding heavy cargo. The longer asymmetrical Midstay chainstays accommdate the 3" wide Chupacabra tires easily. Need to carry more gear? The triple bottle eyelets on the down tube offer extra hardpoints for racks and cages. The 1120's tapered head tube anchors a rugged carbon fiber fork. It boasts a Boost110 thru-axle dropout that enhances wheel rigidity and torsional strength. Eyelets on the fork's blades and crown are perfect for racks and bottle cages galore. A press-fit PF92 bottom bracket ensures flex-free power delivery from the crankset.
The 1120 comes with Shimano's durable 11-speed SLX mountain bike shifter and rear mountain bike derailleur, ensuring lightning-quick operation and long service life. The 11-46T rear cassette and 30T single-ring RaceFace Aeffect crankset boasts a massive gearing range for challenging terrain and topography while loaded down. The 1120's wheelset begins with SUNringle's lightweight 50mm-wide alloy Duroc SL rims. Bontrager Boost110/148 hubs add lateral strength for improved handling and load bearing in rough terrain. Bontrager also supplies the aforementioned 29x3.00" Chupacabra tires that float over potholes, washboard gravel and singletrack with ease. Reigning in momentum is the job of a set of SRAM Level T hydraulic disc brakes that add excellent speed control and stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine. The 1120's Bontrager Drop Line 125 dropper post gets the saddle out of the way while traversing technical trails, and the Drop Line's remote lever at the handlebar makes operation simple. A Bontrager Montrose saddle, accessory-ready alloy Elite stem and alloy Crivitz sweep-back handlebars complete the cockpit. The included rear racks also feature drybag holsters that are designed to carry 8-liter drybags. Rear rack weight limit is 25lbs. Up front, the included front rack can hold up to 15.5lbs and is attached to the fork crown instead of the handlebar for better shifter and brake line routing.
