Trek nailed the naming of this XC rocket, Superfly 8. Flying super fast is only half the story though; its handling and specs make it fully capable when the trail gets rowdy. Its aluminum chassis is equipped with G2 geometry and a 100mm Float up front to lead the way through sketchy sections as fast as possible. Sketchy or smooth, the specs are perfectly matched to the incredible frame and fork. You've got a 2x10 drivetrain with an XT Shadow Plus rear derailleur that makes chain slap and dropped chains a thing of the past. Tubeless-ready wheels, SLX discs and Bontrager Race Lite controls top everything off nicely. Speed, efficiency and fun: Your Superfly awaits.
|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.|
Trek’s premium lightweight aluminum is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points for ultimate weight reduction and superior strength. Frames built with Trek’s Alpha Platinum aluminum are hydroformed to create the most sophisticated shapes for the lightest weight, and are finished using their smooth-weld process.
