Trekbikes 2018: Explore every mountain

Trekbikes announced the new 2018 range of mountain bikes. In their latest release, they have ensured that there is something for everyone. So let’s take you through some of the 2018 Trekbikes range. Trek has provided the background and information, and as we at Ride have not reviewed these bikes, we can only present the information, rather than support to refute their comments. You be the judge…

Roscoe and X Caliber – Hardtails

The Roscoe and X Caliber fulfill the cost-effective hardtail range of Trekbikes. There is the new addition of the Roscoe range and a completely revamped X Caliber range. Best of all, the Roscoe and X-Caliber bikes are affordably priced, giving you value for money and leaving you with a smile before you even begin kicking up the dirt!


The Roscoe is the right choice for new riders who value a confidence-inspiring and fun ride. Roscoe’s 3˝ tyres grip relentlessly on uneven terrain and roll over trail obstructions with ease. Roscoe is the mountain bike that makes every ride more fun than the last. Roscoe is more laid back, dressed in spec that’s ready to party out on the trail. It’s focused on capability and versatility, with 27.5+ wheels and tyres paired with a 120mm fork for the confidence to take on the most challenging trails.

X Caliber


X-Caliber gets a spec package which appeals to the classic XC crowd. The X-Caliber is focused on speed and efficiency, with Smart Wheel Sizing that pairs the fastest wheel size with each frame size. All X-Caliber models feature 100mm forks for quick handling, 2x Shimano drivetrains for the right gear and cadence in any situation, and rigid seat posts for saving weight.

Top Fuel and Fuel X – Carbon bikes

The unbelievably light new Top Fuel and Fuel EX carbon models offer serious value for money.

Top Fuel

The better-than-ever Top Fuel is a high-performance machine and versatile choice for the cross-country racing market. The 2018 Top Fuel range, is reinvigorated with new technology highlights including a SRAM 1×12 Eagle drive train on top-end models and the new Rapid drive hub technology. The Rapid Drive hub design instantly transfers cycling effort into forward momentum after freewheeling. The 2018 range has been expanded to include affordable mid-range options on the carbon models and 2 colourway options on the popular Top Fuel 9.8 – hot viper red and matt anthracite.

Fuel X

The Fuel EX blends the best of both worlds in one uncompromising package. It’s a bike that makes everything easier, from climbing, to cornering or descending. The 2018 range has been expanded to include 29˝ or 27.5˝ mid-fat options, and new technologies. Trek has also included affordable mid-range carbon models. The Fuel EX 9.9 also features the new RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft shock technology.
