2015 Trek Bikes Sneak Peek 2 – Superfly FS, Plus More Farley & Session Mountain Bikes
In Part One of our TrekWorld gallery, we covered a much wider collection of new road, cyclocross, gravel, adventure and other mountain bikes. Here, we’ve snagged a few more pics of the Farley 8 fat bike and Sesson DH 27.5″, plus a lot of different Superfly 100 (er, Superfly FS…we still like the ‘100’ moniker better) full suspension race 29ers.
Above is the new top of the line for the model, available in your choice of full XX1 or full XTR, each with a loverly powder blue paint scheme…
The XTR model gets the 1×11 group with Bontrager RXL wheels and Fox suspension.
The SRAM XX1 build runs DT Swiss Spline wheels with the Rockshox RS-1 and Monarch shock. The RS-1 is available with a 51mm offset, so not sure if they actually got a custom G2 geometry version or if this is a stock item with different graphics.
Below the baby blue bikes are the everyman’s (or woman’s) models with more attainable price points.
The 9.8 is in the front, 9.7 in the rear.
You still get the same OCLV carbon frame on the $3,499 9.7 SL, making it very upgrade worthy over time…but plenty race ready out of the box.
Here’s a little closer look at some the Session DH 27.5 bike’s details. The top model gets a full carbon rocker arm! Looks like it keeps the Mino Link adjustable geometry feature, too, letting you tweak head angle by 0.5º by simply turning the rear bolts connecting it to the seatstay.
A new Bontrager direct mount stem joins the family. A top cap bolts on with two bolts per side, the rear ones look like they double as attachment points to the fork’s upper crown. A brace between the covers should add a bit more stiffness compared to independent pieces.
The 9.9 upgrades to carbon stays, too, versus the alloy chainstays on the outgoing 2014 model. The DT Swiss FR1950 Gravity Classic look to be not just a new model from them, but also part of a new FR/gravity line.
The new Jackalope wheels get a center spine for the spokes rather than left-to-right off center spoke placement like many other wide wheels:
And they’re tubeless ready, which matches up nicely with their Hodag tubeless ready fat bike tire.
