Today Trek Bicycle launched a completely overhauled line of Superfly carbon and Superfly aluminum models.
The new Superfly 9.6, 9.7, and 9.8 hardtails
feature an OCLV Mountain carbon frame with many of the same features as its SL big brother without the same big price tag. The alloy Superfly 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 feature the Balanced Post Mount brake mount, Closed Convert rear thru-axle and G2 geometry paired with an E2 headtube. The alloy model also loses 7 ounces over its predecessor while gaining a claimed 30% seated compliance, while the carbon model is claimed to deliver 24% more compliance. Both the carbon and alloy models have more aggressive, racing-optimized geometry.
The new alloy version compliments its carbon Superfly FS
sibling with shared geometry and features. Unique features include Trek’s Active Braking Pivot, an Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame, Internal Control Routing, G2 Geometry for the best 29er handling, and a tapered E2 headtube.
The new alloy Superfly hardtail models are available now at Trek retailers worldwide, with the carbon hardtails and alloy full-suspension models becoming available in October. Model availability will vary by market.
