While the rest of the industry was mucking about with 29-inch DH bike prototypes for professional mountain bike racers, Trek brought the party to the people with their first production 29er downhill bike. Session 29 Carbon Frameset pairs fast-rolling 29er performance and Trek's proven downhill frame technology. It's long, stable, and aggressive, with a geometry dialed for your fastest runs ever.
It's right for you if...
You need speed. You live for it. You dream about it. And when you're on the mountain, you're gonna get after it. You want faster-rolling 29-inch wheels, a carbon frame, and the latest DH tech out there.
The tech you get
Session 29 is built with an ultralight and ultra-durable OCLV Mountain Carbon, 190mm rear travel with a FOX Factory X2 shock, Carbon Armor, and integrated frame protection like built-in bumpers for a double-crown fork. Plus, it has frame tech that lets you dial your geometry, like Mino Link and the included fixed-angle headset cups.
The final word
This is the fastest downhill bike Trek makes. This 29er-optimized carbon ride is great for rolling over the rough stuff and getting to the finish line with plenty of time to spare.
Why you'll love it
1 - Trek put a whole lot into this bike, including nearly a decade of research and development by engineers and designers who wanted to break the mold of DH capability and speed—and they succeeded
2 - Session 29 is taking downhill to a new place, and it's leading the charge on the World Cup circuit among the very first 29er DH bikes
3 - The fastest runs demand the most dialed setup: the air shock and fork on Session 9.9 are adjustable and easy to fine-tune for different tracks
4 - Mino Link and fixed-angle headset cups let you adjust your geometry for the exact handling you want
