Trek 29er Technology
Conventional wisdom says management 29ers have sleep compared with 26 "wheel bikes. Solved that with G2 geometry with a custom fork offset and advanced frame geometry for precise handling at low speed without compromising high speed stability. Trek is why 29ers handle better than any other.
A big wheel has its best time, to keep things rolling over rough and maintain cornering speed. The increased size of the wheel decreases the angle of attack which means that the larger wheels do seem smaller obstacles.
On a 29er, its center of gravity is lower with respect to the pivot point (front axle). This translates into a more stable feeling as you sit more in the cabin. A "tire 29 has a contact surface longer. This greatly improves the ability to scale and curves, and helps the bike float in soft, loamy soil.
This Trek mountain bike has a frame that offers great benefits for you to take the trip more enjoyable. The frame features Trek technology Evo Link, a rocker link one piece to provide a stronger connection point between the front and rear triangles, creating a stiffer frame for greater control with minimal weight. The frame also has a lot of internal cable routing, hiding cables and derailleurs dropper poles to create a clean installation you can be proud.
The frame of the bike also has a Full Floater, which gives the shock to two moving linkage points to better respond to shocks in a wide variety of terrain. E2 is the evolution of the traditional 1-1/8 "headset to a tapered head tube, fork, and headset system. E2 tapers from a 1.5" lower to 1 1/8 "upper headset to provide more material where it matters most, resulting in a stronger structure, lighter with the control point and shoot.
Dual Rate Control Valve Technology
Fuel EX 9 has the advantage DRCV, eliminates all the disadvantages of traditional systems of air. There are two cameras constantly working together to give the consistent use of the entire route and incredible control over the entire journey. DRCV fits the volume of air blow depending on the size you are.
Active Braking Pivot Technology
This bike incorporates patented Active Braking Pivot Trek's suspension of work freely if you're on the brakes or off them. It is smooth and controlled suspension that works optimally at all times. Because the suspension is active under braking to maintain control, which means you can brake later in a turn. You can also keep better rear wheel traction stuttering leather, so you can go faster and have more fun.
