Wahoo is what you'll shout after you carve a long stretch of sweet singletrack on this sweet hardtail. The Wahoo boasts Trek's feathery Gold Series butted-aluminum frame with G2 29er geometry and a 100mm-travel fork for top-notch handling, precise steering and complete control on any and every trail. Solid Tektro disc brakes put a clamp on the light Bontrager 29er wheels allowing you to slow down in any condition, should you ever want to. Plus, the Shimano 24-speed drivetrain and fine Bonty components let you cruise anywhere and everywhere with ease.
|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.
