X- Caliber

“Mountain bikes are made to ride off-road for adventure, fun and competition. They’re characterised by wide, knobby tyres for increased traction on variable terrain, but there is a great deal of variation between models. Hard tail or full suspension? 29er or 27.5”? Aluminium or carbon? From suspension to frame design, finding the bike that’s right for you depends on where you’ll ride and the type of riding you want to do.

Most styles of mountain bikes are designed to be versatile and perform effectively on a wide range of trails, but the sport has evolved into many different disciplines/riding styles over the years, and determining which style of bike fits your goals is the first step in identifying the bike that you’ll most enjoy riding”.

Trek Mountain bikes

Cross Country Bikes

“Cross country bikes are the most efficient type of mountain bike. Their light weight and relatively modest amount of suspension make them apt climbers and strong sprinters.

Cross country mountain bikes were developed for racing, and even though they are an excellent choice for beginners, their speed and simplicity make them a natural fit for competition.

Quick, precise handling defines the experience of riding an XC bike. Responsiveness is appreciated on easier trails, but it does come at the cost of some stability”.

Trail Bikes

“Trail bikes are the most versatile type of mountain bike, and are the best choice for riders who want to enjoy a wide variety of terrain on a bike that’s confidence-inspiring, but not cumbersome.

Trail bikes are ready to take on difficult terrain with forgiving suspension and multiple tyre and wheel size options that give you the courage to push yourself with more challenging rides.

No matter what kind of experience you’re looking for, Trek has the perfect trail bike for you. Our wide range of trail bike models means that both beginners and seasoned enthusiasts can take their ride to the next level”.

Fat Bikes

“Fat bikes have super-wide tyres that vastly increase traction, offering the grip you need to explore trails you simply can’t ride with a traditional mountain bike.

Fat bikes excel in the snow, making them the best choice for those who want to keep riding year-round.

Superior stability and unbeatable traction make fat bikes an excellent choice for mountain bikers who are just discovering the sport”.


“Unique suspension designs and frame geometry allow downhill bikes to take on the steepest and most treacherous trails. Shuttle to the top, and then let it rip.

Defying gravity is fun. Our downhill line-up includes ultra-manoeuvrable bikes that are specifically designed for dirt jumps and stunts.

DH bikes are the only option for downhill racing, and the best riders in the world have piloted Trek downhill bikes to record-breaking World Cup victories and multiple World Championships”.
