2020 Trek Mountain Bikes: The Rundown

Mountain bikes are made for off road riding, this is obvious when you see their knobbly tyres and bouncy suspension. But, there are lots of variations to suit different riders and terrain. The 2020 Trek mountain bikes have pretty much everyone covered, but which one do you go for? In this post I am going to run through the 2020 Trek Mountain bike range to help you decide.

2020 Trek Top Fuel

2020 Trek Top Fuel

I am going to start with the Trek Top Fuel. This is a light weight cross country bike built for racing. However, this version for 2020 has gone through some changes to bring it up to date. It is now a much more capable bike thanks to the changes in geometry. We are seeing bikes with longer and slacker geometry these days, which make them more stable on technical and steep terrain. And the Trek Top Fuel has not escaped this treatment. This is because cross country race courses have got more technical over recent years.

The advantages you will get frrm this, is that it will be more comfortable when it gets technical and it will be less scary on steep descents. There are a few different versions to suit different budgets. Prices start at £2,600 and go up to £8,700 for the fancy Trek Top Fuel9.9 XX1 AXS.

2020 Trek Remedy

When I first rode a Trek Remedy at Coed Y Brenin, Wales, I loved it. It felt very playful, nimble and fun. There are a few versions to choose from depending on your budget, but even the entry level Remedy 7 is a high end bike with a 160mm travel fork and 150mm travel shock from RockShox. It even has an 12 speed SRAM Eagle drivetrain to get you up the steepest hills.

There are aluminium and carbon framed versions and all have 27.5″ wheels. There are also women’s specific versions. The 2020 Trek Remedy is a bike that can do pretty much anything on the trails. From jumps, technical trails to steep ascents and descents. This will slay any trail that you will experience at a training centre with ease. If you were taking it on a trip to the alps, you would probably be ok with it too. But this bike is primarily for riders that take on technical descents and need to get back up the hills.

2020 Trek Slash

2020 Trek Mountain Bikes

The 2020 Trek Slash is an enduro machine. This means it is is built to take on the rough stuff, and alpine style trails. All versions of the 2020 Trek Slash have 29″ wheels. This means it will roll over rocks and roots easily and roll faster. Even though it is a 29er, the £2,700 Slash 8 still has 160mm travel on the fork and on the shock. 

For this kind of money, you will get a very well specced bike that is not going to disappoint. It will take on pretty much everything you can through at it and it will be super fast!

If you are looking for a race ready cross country hardtail, you can’t go far wrong with the 2020 Trek Procaliber. For £2,250, you can have a fast pedaly carbon machine, built for speed and efficiency. This bike comes with the excellent SRAM NX Eagle 12 speed drivetrain, carbon wheels and the RockShox Reba RL fork. All this makes it super easy to pedal over long distances at speed.

If racing is your thing, with this bike you can just turn up with it without any modifications. It is ready to go and eat some miles. This is the Bike Emily Batty uses in the cross country World Cup to great effect. Therefore, it is a very good value money bike for anyone wanting to get in to racing.

2020 Trek Farley

2020 Trek mountain bikes

If you like your tyres to be a bit more squidgy, you might want to look in to the Trek Farley. There are two versions of this fat bike, one has an aluminium frame and the other has carbon. The aluminium framed bike is the best scale fat bike on the market right now.

The advantage of those big chunky wheels, is that you can ride it at any time of the year. This is because fat bike were originally designed for snow and sand. But, they are good for roots, rocks and mud too, while being brilliant fun. This is because they are very grippy and stable.

The Farley 5 and 9.6 are rigid bikes, meaning they have no suspension. This is because all the bumps are soaked up by those tyres. This gives it a smooth ride as well as being great fun.
