Trek announced today the release of the all-new Stache, the completely redesigned mid-fat trail hardtail that offers riders the capability of a full suspension trail bike and the efficiency and simplicity of a hardtail.
Stache delivers more on-trail confidence than ever before with massive 3” tires mounted to 50mm rims for better traction cornering, climbing, and negotiating rough or loose terrain.
Stache’s mid-fat tires and wide rims are paired with some of the shortest chainstays Trek has ever engineered, making it the most capable and agile hardtail on the trail. The incredibly short chainstays are achieved through Stache’s all-new frame design, which features an elevated drive-side midstay that keeps the chainstay out of the way of the crank and rear tire.
The bike that redefines expectations and brings the trail hardtail category back into relevance features Trek’s proprietary Stranglehold Dropout for the ultimate in wheel-size versatility. Stache can be optimised with 29+, 27.5+ or standard 29er wheels depending on ride style and terrain and can also be set up as a singlespeed.
Stache is the first bike to feature the all-new Boost 148/110 front and rear hub spacing for stiffness, precision handling, and predictability on even the roughest trails. The new Stache lineup will include 3 alloy models and a frame set.
