Trek Ticket S

Emil Johansson is coming into Crankwrox Rotorua looking to pick up where he left off after his win at Red Bull Joyride last year. Emil is struggling with an autoimmune disease but has been looking strong in practice. As is customary fashion for Trek slopestyle riders, he has a sick new custom paint job on his Trek Ticket S.

If you're doing as many barspins as Emil, you gotta have a gyro set up.

Standard single speed set up for Emil, but he said he would have brought a free coaster if he had seen the new feature on course before flying out.

We can't wait to see what Emil can pull off in the first Crankworx Slopestyle of the year.

 Nobody is going to say anything about those shorts?

In all seriousness, I am stoked for Emil. There's nothing better than hard work and determination paying off. Emil, you're the people's champ! Awesome job man!

 i see what you are saying. I think its a) SS bikes are just kinda small and b)he is standing uphill from the bike on that slope and the photo doesn't convey and distorted as him seeming oversized.

 It looks like a new trek ticket s frame. The 2020 frame still has full floater while Emil’s trek ticket s has a fixed shock mount.

 I like how they very intentionally avoided the stem in pictures and descriptions

 @Kimura: because it is very obviously a Chromag stem, SixPack probably do not have a 31mm option for him yet
  • 1 0
 @Tannerstolt: They do. And they have pedals, wheels, headsets, saddles, seatposts...

 Stoked to see Sixpack as new sponsor, I like their gear. Having said this, a little weird to see the HT pedals! The best of luck to Emil though

 Sponsored by Sixpack but not riding much of their stuff? Weird.

 I know they are fine for this application but my hands cramp up instinctively just look at some avid mech brakes.

 What?? Avid bb5 and bb7 are actually very powerful, reliable, easily adjustable, light. Perfect for this bike

 @emptybe-er: agreed here, used to run trials with Avid mechs. I loved the independent bite point adjustment!

 @krashDH85:I believe it, worm drive has some serious power. TRP spykes are good too

 If your hands are cramping up from braking on dirt jumps, you have a lot bigger problems to worry about.
