TECH / 29er




29er   Technology







More momentum


A bigger wheel holds its momentum better, so you keep rolling over rough stuff and maintain your speed through the corners.






Better angle of attack


Increased wheel size decreases the angle of attack. That means bigger wheels make obstacles seem smaller.






Greater stability


On a 29er, your center of gravity is lower relative to the pivot point (the front axle). This results in a more stable feeling as you sit deeper in the cockpit.







Improved traction


A 29" tire has a longer contact patch. This greatly improves climbing and cornering ability, and helps the bike float over soft terrain such as sand.





FCC MTB / Stiffer thru axle, easy wheel changes

Our robust and confidence-inspiring rear thru axle is about 35% stiffer than an open dropout design. And now, a thru axle wheel change is actually quick and easy, thanks to a tabbed guide in the frame's dropout.











Conventional wisdom says 29ers have sleepy handling compared to 26" wheel bikes. We solved that with G2 Geometry, featuring a custom-offset fork and advanced frame geometry for precise handling at low speed without compromising high-speed stability. It’s why Trek 29ers handle better than any others.
