Trek


Trek has unveiled RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft, an all-new suspension design that improves response time and efficiency. RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft is the latest development from the brand's partnership with Penske Racing Shocks, the global leader in custom motorsport suspension design, which began in 2014 to push bicycle suspension capabilities. The first collaboration resulted in RE:aktiv—a mountain bike suspension technology that responded to changes in terrain faster than any other shock on the market.


Trek has released a new generation of its ultralight Émonda road bike line, shaving 50 grams from the previous SLR models. Additionally, Trek has unveiled the all-new Émonda Disc, delivering enhanced stopping power and all-weather versatility and allowing riders to go places previously unheard for an ultra-lightweight road bike.


Trek Bicycle has unveiled a custom paint scheme that honors the extraordinary achievements of Trek-Segafredo’s Alberto Contador, one of the few cyclists in history to have earned victories in all three Grand Tours—the Tour de France, Giro d'Italia, and Vuelta a España. The Alberto Contador Grand Tour Celebración Émonda SLR is available now to riders around the world through Project One, Trek's custom bike program.

In a coordinated effort with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Trek is issuing a voluntary recall of model year 2015, 2016, and 2017 Trek 720 Disc bicycles as well as Bontrager Approved TLR Disc 700C 24H front and rear wheels. This recall was prompted by the discovery that a limited number of bicycles were made with wheel sets that exhibit a higher rate of spoke breakage. A broken spoke on the front wheel could engage with the brake caliper, causing the bicycle to stop suddenly. Upon discovery, the company immediately contacted the CPSC to begin the process of the recall action it is announcing today. The recall affects 1,529 bikes located throughout the world.

Trek is taking proactive measures to bring attention to this issue by reaching out through its global network of authorized retailers. As part of this voluntary recall, Trek will provide free replacement wheels through its authorized retailers. To incentivize owners to return them, Trek will issue a $100 coupon to each owner of an affected product who participates, good toward any Trek or Bontrager merchandise through December 31, 2017.

Authorized Trek retailers have been notified of the issue, and replacement wheels are currently available. Owners of the affected models can expect fast service and replacement parts.

 

 

In a coordinated effort with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Trek is issuing a voluntary recall of the 2014 Farley and 2015 Farley 6, as well as the framesets of both models. 2016 and 2017 models are not included. This recall is prompted by a pattern of five warranty requests outlining consumer comments of noise and looseness in the headset area of the affected models. An abnormality in the connection between the fork and steerer tube of these select Farley models has the potential to cause a separation at the base of the steerer tube. To date, no injuries involving the affected models have been reported. Upon discovery, the company immediately contacted the CPSC to begin the process of the recall action it is announcing today. The recall affects 4,635 bikes globally, 2,665 of which are located in the United States.

Trek is taking proactive measures to bring attention to this issue by contacting registered owners of the affected models, as well as by reaching out through its global network of authorized retailers. As part of this voluntary recall notice, Trek will provide through its authorized local retailers a free replacement fork, including installation. To incentivize owners of the affected bikes to bring their bikes in for the necessary replacement parts, Trek will be issuing a $100 coupon good towards any Trek or Bontrager product for every bike returned for service.

Authorized Trek retailers have been notified of the issue, and replacement parts are currently available to shops across the globe. Owners of the affected models can expect fast service and replacement parts. Trek urges all riders to have their bikes inspected annually and always maintained by a certified mechanic.
