First Look: Trek's Limited Edition Slopestyle Bikes

Aug 15, 2013 at 15:26
by Mike Kazimer  
The world's best mountain bike slopestyle athletes have gathered in Whistler, British Columbia, this week to compete in the most important contest of the season – Red Bull Joyride. With the mountain bike world's attention focused on slopestyle, it was fitting that Trek chose this time to unveil their line of limited edition slopestyle, park, and dirt jump frames.

Trek has always had a strong presence in the slopestyle world, with C3 athletes like Brandon Semenuk, Brett Rheeder, Ryan Howard, and Cam McCaul standing atop podiums around the globe. However, despite their impressive roster and results, Trek has never made a production slopestyle frame. That is, until this November, when the first production versions of the Ticket S will begin arriving in shops. The Ticket S is the first of a batch of bikes created for Trek's Race Shop / Limited program. This program gives riders the chance to buy the same frame that Trek's athletes are riding on. With only a limited number of frames produced each year it's strictly a first come, first served affair. Trek will also be offering rider edition bikes, beginning with Ryan Howard's custom painted, American flag themed Ticket S. These will be available in even smaller quantities than the non-rider edition bikes.

 @Benlow the R-Dog frame is one of the team only frames that we made to support C3 a year ago. The black on black is full production, a few tweaks were made to the final production frame, namely the chain stay and rocker. The production frames are still pretty hard to come by so we painted up a team frame for the launch. Rest assured all production frames will have the new rocker and stay!

I despise everything about Trek and would (most likely) never ride a Trek to save my life, but I think I'm calling my local dealer to put an advance full-pay deposit on one of those R-Dog frames, just because it is so stupidly beautiful.

 I would never buy a Trek either, but that 190 Session is a lovely looking bike. I hope this pushes more companies, namely Devinci, to offer slightly lower travel versions of their DH frames. I would love to get my hands on a 180 or 190mm travel Wilson.

 In reply:
I think I don't like them because of two things...
1. I have always ridden Specialized (and some boutique / special purpose frames) for all of my "as-built" bikes, so maybe some of it is "tribal hatred" or "company racism" because of that allegiance.
2. Back in the day (5-10 years ago), Trek was not the top of the heap on quality, at least as far as my local area peers and role models were concerned, and the LBS that sold Trek was populated by stark-raving retards as well, so that didn't help anything.

YES, I'm well aware that none of that really means anything when it comes to today's Trek brand, their bikes and frames, or me for that matter, but it's stuck, just like peoples' tribal love / hate over sports teams.
  • + 4
 i see what you mean but when you break it down why would Semenuk Rheeder McCaul and Howard all ride the exact same bike for years if it was truly terrible. they obviously love it or they wouldve switch to another company by now

 No kidding. That is $500 more than a Carbon Operator complete bike. I understand that is a limited frame and is very cool, but serious coin for a frame only.
  • + 3
 Made in America carbon brings a big price tag, but worth it.
  • - 1
 I dont see why carbon frames are so damn expensive. .. I mean the most expensive part to making anything from carbon are the moulds which you can use repeatedly before any flaws start to show, but with Trek being such a big company im guessing they will have the means to machine their own moulds halving the cost... the carbon itself is fairly cheap, I bet they only have to sell a couple of these frames before their overheads are covered.... prices we as enthusiasts have to pay for the "best technology".
  • + 9
 The tech that goes into Trek's carbon for their DH bikes is absolutely unreal. I work for the nations largest Trek dealership so ive had a bit of an inside scoop when it comes to their releases, tech and such. They test these frames by taking an anvil, yes those old school things blacksmiths used to use, and drop it 35 MPH into the frame. They tested it with standard carbon bike frames, aluminum & steel, and then their DH carbon. The standard carbon shattered like you can imagine a cannonball into a fiberglass hull of a boat, done. The aluminum and steel frames both dented and the eventually failed their structural test vs typical riding conditions. The DH carbon frame however, simply repelled it like water on wax. Sure the paint chipped, but the carbon was totally intact even after several hits of the anvil. Anvil vs the armor piece on the downtube by the BB, no damage to report. So when you are contemplating spending that extra chunk of change for a Trek carbon DH frame, do it. You'll thank yourself when you go down in a huge rock garden and your bike is more mangled in the rocks than you are, that or you are gonna wish you didn't buy that damn Kona operator that was on sale Wink .
  • + 6
 I saw cracked and dented Alu Sessions and it did not took anvil to do it. Sweden where I live is a small country, it's easy to know who broke what. If you take a DH frame to the weight level of other companies trail bikes, 3.2kg - shit will happen. Carbon Trek frame weighs 2.8kg, considering that includes heavier axles, that is a nearly the same as carbon Nomad - you can believe what you want. Either Nomad is vastly overbuilt or Session 9.9 tries to win clients with lowest weight on the market. Off course Santa does stuff in China while Trek might be getting their carbon and production technology from Hogwart
  • + 3
 i only ride park!
  • + 2
 Carbon or not, interesting split up between race bike and park bike. Makes sense, because new school race bikes lack of excitement, and fun in the park, at least in my opinion. glad i am not racing, all i need is a fun bike. After many brands sold us race bikes as park bikes for years, we end up again where we have been years ago, just lighter and more expensive.
  • + 3
 Hah obviously never had a v10c in shop. Santa Cruz broke their strength testing equip on the v10c frame. Hahaha ok carbon road bikes will shatter, but definitely not a v10. On a second note, has anyone even broken a v10c frame yet? (In a crash, not quality control f*ck ups)?
  • + 1
 Plenty of cracked carbon sessions around, $4500 for a frame is one hell of a price tag, looks like the big boys are trying to see how high they can push the sky on long travel full sus carbon bikes. (s works demo, session, etc).

I'll stick to my saracen for the time being and put the cash towards other bikes, a van and uplifts.

 The price is correct - the Ticket S is aluminum, the Session is carbon.

 Mike, thanks for the article...do you know when or what other rider ltd frames will be out?
  • + 5
 $1499 is actually a reasonable price!

And the $4499? Here's what my thoughts are (which no one cares about and nobody asked for):

These frames are not a money maker (which is why they never sold them). They are selling these as a promotion and to satisfy the limited number of people who want them. Because of this, I bet they are selling them at close to what their cost is. These aren't massed produced, so they most likely cost quite a bit more than their "public" lineup. Just my thoughts.
  • + 13
 The price of that frame is too damn high!

 An aluminum session park with an entry level build kit and single crown fork like the old 88fr but in the 3-4k range would be amazing

 Can we have a Semenuk edition Ticket S with the Fur and some Canadian colours?
  • + 3
 It's very possible that a fur paint scheme will be released, but the cost will be higher due to how much time is involved to paint each frame.
  • + 2
 It'd be worth it!
  • - 1
 And the fact that its "SEMENuck's frame" haha
  • + 7
 What I like about the frames is that there is a fluent line from the rear axle to the very head tube, although the presence of the suspension link. The rear triangle matches the top tube somehow and makes them look clean, with optimal stress distribution. The line is even prolonged by the head tube sculpturing. I'd call this a noble approach to drawing a design. Trek was my very first mtb and I think I should devote it more attention.
  • + 7
 why isnt there frame weights ???
  • + 3
 I hope the wait was because they were designing a killer slope style frame, not just neglecting to address the begging everyone has been doing. On another note well done trek, these bikes look killer! Would definitely buy one if I was a slope rider!

  • + 2
 I have done some work with carbon, and yes, it is extremely more expensive. The molds are massively expensive, but the cost for materials and labor per individual bike is less. Therefore, the more you make/sell, the less your cost is per unit sold. However, this is a limited edition with limited appeal, so they aren't likely to sell many. Also, the R&D that went into the bike is also a huge fixed cost.

 So when do the Rheeder, Semenuk, and McCaul frames come out? I don't Remember R-Dawg standing on any podiums lately . He' s cool. - but nowhere near as cool as Rheeder, McCaul, and yes , Semenuk

 Maybe "cool" was the wrong word, but I think you know what I'm trying to say......(.It would be like Dartmoor coming out with a Raymond George frame . Sorry bro - I had to go there- lol).

 I know it was a joke but I think Semenuk said he preferred the feel of a coil over the air. Big Grin

 most pro prefer coil over air, you dont see much air rear shock on the wc

 Yeah I guess so. I'm looking at ditching the DHX4.0 on my Uzzi and either getting a CCDB Air if it fits or a custom Float X.

 @Ryan - I have a DHX RC4 2/ Ti spring on my Evil Undead and a RS Vivid Air r2c. The air is nice but I prefer the coil and imagine you would too, if dh is your thing.

 I have my Uzzi as more of an Enduro setup but do the occasional downhill and it's heavy on the climbs so a float x (all be it only a minor weight reduction) would better suit my needs I think. But if I ever go for a smaller travel (I have 180 front and rear) rig then ill put the coil back on and have the float as a spare.

 Looks like the suspension com

 (Stupid phone) ...companies need to take out a 2-page ad in "Decline" magazine spouting off how much better air suspension is than coil for downhill, in an attempt to sway everyone over. See page 20 of the latest issue. Hint: the ad I'm referring to was placed by Giant. Coil and 26" for me.
