Trek Remedy 8 in review

trek remedy 8 2022 geometry

The Trek Remedy 8 made it to the very top of the group test. It impressed all of our test riders with its outstanding performance, deserving the title Best in Test. But what makes this bike so special?

trek remedy 8 2022 geometry

Last year, Trek gave the Remedy a complete overhaul. Gone is the full-floater suspension, though the linkage still hinges around the rear axle. This decouples the braking forces from the suspension so that both can work independently of each other. Apart from this, the geometry has also been refined. Despite the reasonable price of € 2,999 and traditional distribution model, Trek has managed to spec the Remedy 8 with good quality components. We were particularly impressed by the RockShox Lyrik fork, but the GX Eagle drivetrain is just as rare a sight on bikes in this segment. The componentry is rounded off by plenty of in-house Bontrager parts. Fortunately, the much-criticised dropper post has been revised and now performs just fine. At the back of the Remedy, there’s a RockShox Deluxe shock featuring Trek’s RE:active technology. Even with the climb switch engaged, the shock responds sensitively to small irregularities in the trail. However, it does so without Trek’s Thru-Shaft system, as featured on their more expensive carbon models. We didn’t use the Mino-Link on the seat stay to adjust the geometry – the slack setting was ideal. There are additional bosses on the top tube to mount something like the Wolf Tooth B-RAD system to carry a spare tube and tools – very nice!

The Trek Remedy 8 in test

Unlike the old model, the update geometry that offers a central riding position thanks to the steep seat tube angle. It feels steeper in reality than one would expect when looking at the numbers. The rear end doesn’t wallow on steep terrain and performs very efficiently. That makes the Remedy a capable climber and it really comes into its own on technical, twisty climbs. With plenty of traction at the rear and the central riding position, you’ll master even the trickiest sections. Reaching for the shock’s climb switch is only worthwhile on long, monotonous ascents.

Going downhill, the Trek Remedy 8 succeeds in perfectly combining supposedly opposing handling characteristics. The bike is agile yet composed, the suspension is sensitive yet defined. This mixture is what makes the Remedy the perfect all-rounder. Fast flow-trails are as much fun on this bike as a trip to the bike park or a multi-day adventure in the Alps. The rear suspension performs very sensitively and effectively feels like much more travel than 150 mm. The weight distribution on the bike is superbly balanced, allowing it to corner as though by itself, and remaining very predictable when you start to reach the limits of its capabilities. We recommend leaving the spacers fitted under the stem seeing as the head tube is very short. The reach is on the shorter end of the spectrum at 455 mm, but the Trek Remedy doesn’t lack stability. The only two things we didn’t like are the 2.6″ wide Bontrager XR4 tires and the weak SRAM Guide brakes. Both should be replaced with better alternatives at the bike shop. Narrower tires underline the bike’s precise handling and a slightly more robust casing makes perfect sense for the kind of terrain the bike feels most comfortable in.

Top suspension, top geometry, top spec – the Trek has it all!

Agile, playful, smooth and composed – the Trek Remedy 8 has got it all! It also impressed us with its brilliant suspension, good looks and high-quality workmanship. Whether flow-trails or bike-park, efficient climbing or fun descending, the Remedy is the one bike to rule them all. Best in Test!

This scale indicates how efficiently the bike climbs. It refers to both simple and technical climbs. Along with the suspension, the riding position and the weight of the bike all play a crucial role. ↩

How does the bike ride and descend? How spritely is the bike, how agile is it through corners, how much fun is it in tight sections and how quickly can it change direction? ↩

Is the bike stable at high speeds? Is it easy to stay in control in demanding terrain? How composed is it on rough trails? Stability is a combination of balanced geometry, good suspension and the right spec. ↩

This is all about how balanced the bike is and particularly about how well it corners. Balanced bikes require little physical effort from the rider and are very predictable. If a bike is unbalanced, the rider has to work hard to weight the front wheel to generate enough grip. However, experienced riders can have a lot of fun even with unbalanced bikes. ↩

How sensitive is the suspension over small bumps? Can it absorb hard impacts and does it soak up repeated hits? Plush suspension not only provides comfort and makes a bike more capable, but it also generates traction. The rating includes the fork and the rear suspension. ↩

This aspect mainly comes down to the suspension. How much pop does it have, does it suck up the rider’s input or is it supportive, and how agile and direct is the bike? ↩

We don’t calculate value for money in an excel spreadsheet or based on how high-end a bike is specced. We are more concerned with how a bike performs on the trail and how the bike benefits the rider. What good are the best components if the bike doesn’t perform well on the trail? Expensive bikes with a lower-end spec can offer very good value for money – provided they excel where it matters. Just as supposedly cheap bikes with good components can get a bad rating if they don’t deliver on the trail. ↩

No, it’s not about racing, it’s about efficiency. Fast, fleet-footed and efficient – those who want to speed along flowy singletrack and gravel roads need a defined and spritely bike that accelerates with ease and efficiency. Nevertheless, reliable components are important too. We interpret XC more like the Americans do: big back-country rides instead of a marathon or XC World Cup with the ultimate in lightweight construction! Uphill-downhill ratio: 80:30 (not everything has to be 100%!) ↩

...also known as mountain biking. Classic singletrack with roots, rocks and ledges – sometimes flowy, sometimes rough. For this, you need a bike with good all-round qualities, whether climbing or descending. Uphill-downhill ratio: 50:50 ↩

Even more extreme and challenging compared to Trail riding, riddled with every kind of obstacle: jumps, gaps, nasty rock gardens, ruts and roots. For this, you need (race)proven equipment that forgives mistakes and wouldn’t look out of place on a stage of the Enduro World Series. Climbing is just a means to an end. Uphill-downhill ratio: 30:70 ↩

Strictly speaking, a 200 mm travel downhill bike is the best choice for merciless tracks with big jumps, drops and the roughest terrain. Those would be the black or double-black-diamond tracks in a bike park. But as some of the EWS pros (including Sam Hill) have proven, it’s the riding skills and not the bike that define what you can ride with it. Climbing? On foot or with a shuttle, please! Uphill-downhill ratio: 10:90 ↩

The Trek Remedy 7 is a long travel trail bike that sets a great standard for this category of bike. It’s reasonably well priced for a ‘shop bought’ bike, providing a nimble ride that will put a smile on your face. It's probably not the fastest bike you'll ride but it is a lot of fun!

Trek Remedy 8 27.5 frame

I opted for the alloy Remedy 8 over the identically priced 9.7, which has a carbon frame but a lesser spec.

Both share the same frame features, including the Mino Link chips that make it a doddle to switch between the bike’s high and low geometry settings. In the high mode, the bike had a head angle of 66.4 degrees, its bottom bracket sat 345mm off the floor and it had a reasonable 445mm reach.

The low setting slackens the head (and seat) angle by 0.5 degrees and lowers the bottom bracket by nearly 10mm. Another neat touch is the Knock Block steering limiter. This ensures the fork crown won’t spin around and smash into the Remedy’s straight down tube (made so to increase stiffness and reduce weight).

The 150mm (5.9in) of rear wheel travel is controlled by a RockShox Deluxe RT3 shock, complete with Trek’s proprietary RE:aktiv tune. This is clamped between the EVO rocker link and extended chainstay tips.

Internal cable routing keeps the bike looking clean and uncluttered, but means maintenance won’t be quite as faff free. Not everyone will be a fan of the press-fit bottom bracket.

Trek Remedy 8 27.5 kit

The top-end RockShox Deluxe RT3 shock comes with Trek’s proprietary RE:aktiv internals

My bike was delivered with Schwalbe Nobby Nic tyres in place of the Bontrager XR4 Team Issues that should come as standard. After flatting the Schwalbes all too easily, it was a relief when Trek sent over some XR5s, which proved far more resilient to puncturing and offered more consistent grip in the wet conditions I tested the Remedy in.

Trek has ditched its habit of sticking travel-adjust forks on the Remedy this year, which is no bad thing. The Remedy 8 comes with RockShox’s formidable Lyrik RC, which pumps out a well-controlled 160mm (6.3in) of travel.

Trek Remedy 8 27.5 ride

The Remedy really is a class all-rounder. Point it uphill and it’ll claw its way up just about any pitch without fuss and feels reasonably stable under power, even with the shock left in its open mode.

That eagerness is helped by the bike’s relatively low weight and, with the Schwalbe tyres (in the ADDIX SpeedGrip compound) fitted, what felt like little in the way of rolling resistance.

Even after I made the change to the more robust Bontrager rubber, the Remedy was still keen to get going, and the grip on offer was more predictable, even on wet rocks and roots. They’re tougher too and won’t have you wincing every time you clatter into a rock section, waiting for the sound of air escaping.

There's plenty of control up front and a sensitive yet supportive feel at the rear

Its suspension balance is impressive too, with plenty of control up front and a sensitive yet supportive feel at the rear, which adds to its playful yet confident feel on the trail.

The frame is taut, responsive and accurate when you load it hard into a turn or hop from line to line, and the low-slung bottom bracket (in the low setting) means its surefooted through the corners.

While it may not feel like a super-stable, point-and-shoot downhill bomber on really roughed up, high-speed trails, its composure and well-measured delivery of its travel meant I never felt out of our depth.

The Remedy 8 is a great all-rounder that’s a blast to ride, no matter what trail lies ahead.

"I was blown away"

"I was blown away at how stiff the new Remedy is. Just right for aggressive trail riding. The sum of the parts adds up to a greatly refined bike, but perhaps the biggest story is the increased value."

"Top of the pack"

"Overnight, the Remedy has become our new favorite test bike in the quiver. It's snappy, responsive, and accelerates like a rocket ship."

"Pure fun"

"There might be similar bikes out there, but Trek’s suspension is worth paying for. This bike smooths junk out better than anything I’ve ridden before."

Trek Remedy 8

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 aluminum frame with 150mm of rear travel, a 160mm 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 aluminum 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 dollar, you won't do better than Remedy 8. Why you'll love it: - This is our best blend of performance and value in the Remedy family: an alloy frame with the same spec as much higher-end bikes makes this model a smokin' deal - Shimano XT delivers smooth, precise shifting with just a light touch of the lever - Mino Link lets you make small adjustments to your geometry quickly and easily, even mid-ride - Wider is more stable: Remedy has clearance for up to 27.5x2.8" tires

    The Trek Remedy 7 is a long travel trail bike that sets a great standard for this category of bike. It's reasonably well priced for a 'shop bought' bike, providing a nimble ride that will put a smile on your face.

  8. Trek Remedy 8 in review

    The Trek Remedy 8 in test Unlike the old model, the update geometry that offers a central riding position thanks to the steep seat tube angle. It feels steeper in reality than one would expect when looking at the numbers. The rear end doesn't wallow on steep terrain and performs very efficiently.

  20. 2022 Trek Remedy 8

    Since the Remedy is discontinued, I can get a pretty good deal on the 2022 model Remedy 8 for 2500$, while the Ex is a thousand more and the spec is worse. My brain says go with the trend and get the new bike with big wheels and new geometry, but my heart says get the remedy because it's way cheaper with better components and more nimble.

    Remedy 8 in 2023?? WhichBike. Hi all, I've been looking to purchase a full-suspension mountain bike for a while now, and have come across the Trek Remedy 8 (2022) model for a good price. It's at £2000 instead of £3500 - is this a good deal for the bike you get? I've heard the geometry is outdated and the wheel size is strange though.
