FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Brand-new model finds payoff at top level of mountain biking after years in development Punta Ala, Italy
Former World Champion downhiller Tracy Moseley once again proved her talent and all-around riding ability by winning the first-ever Enduro World Series aboard the all-new Trek Remedy 29. The newly-sanctioned discipline of enduro rewards riders who can both descend and pedal well, requiring a well-rounded, yet very capable bike.
The new Enduro World Series provides an optimal test for Moseley and the Remedy 29.As a relatively new discipline, the norms for enduro racing equipment are still being established, with bike setup varying greatly by rider. Moseley chose the soon-to-be-released Remedy 29 to take the inaugural event win. A 140mm full-suspension Trek 29er trail bike, the Remedy 29 was only just released to North American Trek retailers the week before the event in Punta Ala. A European retailer launch is forthcoming.
The Remedy 29 represents a ground-up redesign of Trek’s Remedy platform, with several years in development, testing, and refinement. The all-new bike is a combination of Trek’s proven technologies, Active Braking Pivot ABP and Dual Rate Control Valve DRCV suspension, along with Trek and Gary Fisher’s 29er expertise and exclusive 29er-specific G2 geometry. The result is a long-travel 29er that brings the advantages of bigger wheels to a fully-capable trail bike. Moseley’s win proves that big wheels can tackle the most challenging terrain in a race setting, if the bike is done correctly.
