Remedy 8 hits the sweet spot in performance and value in the all-mountain category. A lightweight alloy frame, SRAM GX Eagle component spec, a premium RockShox Lyrik 160 mm fork and 150 mm rear shock make it the ideal ride for shredders who want a ridiculously capable mountain bike for ridiculously fun trails.
Why we love it
This is our best blend of performance and value in the Remedy family: an Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame with the same spec as much higher-end bikes makes this model a smokin' deal
RE:aktiv damping keeps the shock firm for efficient pedalling and pumping, and instantly soaks up bumps to keep you in control
It surfs down rough trails and conquers jumps with sure-footed confidence, then flies back to the top with its extra-low 50-tooth climbing gear
The shifter-style, underbar remote dropper post lever is super intuitive and easy to use
