Remedy 8 hits the sweet spot in all-mountain performance and value. A lightweight alloy frame, SRAM GX Eagle 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 aluminium frame, an upgraded 160 mm RockShox Super Deluxe fork with a plush DebonAir spring and Charger 2.1 RC damper that gives you more adjustment and control, and 150 mm of rear travel with an exclusive RE:aktiv rear shock. Plus, a SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drive train with leg-saving lower climbing gears and Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels.
It’s our highest-end aluminium 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 pound, you won’t do better than Remedy 8.
Smaller frames (S) have a top tube that dips down as it approaches the seat tube. This design makes for a lower standover height, which is good for shorter riders because it allows them to straddle their bike more easily. The larger frames (M and ML) have a straight top tube because taller riders with longer legs typically don’t have the same issues with standover height.
