Fast. Agile. Confident. Capable. That sums up Trek's Stache 8 perfectly. This bike gets down to business with 29-inch wheels and a 120mm Fox Float fork that dares anything to get in your way. Trek loaded the Platinum aluminum frame with all the marks of a fully legit trail bike like G2 trail geometry, E2 tapered head tube, ISCG05 mounts, dropper-post routing and a 142x12mm rear end. That rear end is enhanced by super short chainstays that make it rip through berms, dominate twisty trails and out-accelerate your crew. SRAM's X1 cranks power a wide-ranging 1x11 drivetrain. Tubeless-ready Bontrager wheels with fat tires are your landing gear and the Bonty components are as light as they are tough. The hardtail is back.
Trek’s premium lightweight aluminum is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points for ultimate weight reduction and superior strength. Frames built with Trek’s Alpha Platinum aluminum are hydroformed to create the most sophisticated shapes for the lightest weight, and are finished using their smooth-weld process.
|Trek's G2 Geometry (version 2 of Gary Fisher's Genesis Geometry) delivers the ultimate ride for every trail. Genesis earned rave reviews for awesome handling on climbs and descents thanks to a long top tube paired with a short stem that moves the front wheel forward for top-notch confidence and control, while short chainstays add phenomenal traction. G2 Geometry takes these handling traits to the next level by boosting control on tight singletrack and technical climbs, too. This is accomplished by increasing the amount of fork offset (reducing trail), which makes G2 bikes steer more quickly, and by shortening the reach, which puts more weight on the front wheel for even better control and confidence. The two animations above showcase how G2 Geometry provides the perfect ride.|
