Remedy 8 hits the sweet spot in all-mountain performance and value. A lightweight alloy frame, Shimano XT component spec and a premium RockShox suspension package make it the ideal ride for sendy bois who want a ridiculously fun bike for whipping around on ridiculously fun trails.
It's right for you if...
You like getting rowdy on rough trails. One or both of your wheels leave the ground often, and you want an alloy bike that's tough enough to handle whatever you throw at it. You don't shy away from gnarly trails. Your bike shouldn't either.
The tech you get
A light and tough aluminium frame with 150 mm of rear travel, a 160 mm RockShox Lyrik Select+ fork with a plush DebonAir spring and Charger 2.1 RC damper that gives you more adjustment and control. Plus, a Shimano XT 12-speed drivetrain for super-smooth shifting that's easy on the thumb, leg-saving lower climbing gears, a dropper post, powerful 4-piston brakes and Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels that come completely tubeless-ready, including sealant.
The final word
It's our highest-end aluminium Remedy. The beefy alloy frame, 27.5˝ wheels, and premium suspension make it the perfect ride to dish out and stand up to some serious abuse on the trail. If you're measuring your rides in rad per pound, you won't do better than Remedy 8.
