Take A Peek At Trek's Newest 2016 Models: Slash and Remedy

The 2016 Madone, Pro Caliber SL, and Top Fuel Have Already Been Introduced. Time To Meet Trek's Newest Additions

For bikes, they’ve already released their new Madone aero road race bike for the Tour de France team to use. On the dirt, their pros have been racing the completely redesigned Top Fuel and ProCaliber SL, and the Fuel EX got the Boost 148/110 upgrade.

What remained to be seen was what they’d do with their Remedy and Slash platforms. The Remedy 29ers were the first to get Boost, ushering in the latest standard craze, and those carry over with Boost on both ends of the bike. We hear one model might even get the Fox 36 fork. Here, though, we have the 27.5″ bikes, including a new women’s model, all of which keep the standard 12×142 rear end…

Shown up top of the post is the Slash 7, and spec is directly above.


The Slash 8 upgrades to a SRAM GX1 1×11 group with 2-position Pike fork and better brakes.


A lot of folks expected the Remedy 27.5 bikes to grow into a Boost format, but our man on the scene in Wisconsin says that’s not the case. But, there is a lot of purple going around.


There’s now a women’s Remedy 27.5 mountain bike, presumably (hopefully) with appropriately tuned suspension and cockpit dimensions. Other than that, the spec is similar to the regular Remedy models.
