    Summary

    Expirience with the Trek Session 8 29 GX

    Expirience with the Session 8 29 GX 2022 Reece Wilson's world champion bike, the Session 8 29 GX , is now available for the avarage Joe. And it cuts a damn fine figure in every bike park. Especially in extremely steep terrain, this combination makes for smooth handling. When the frame is Trek, its all about quality. The chassis is above average. There are Downhill-Bike in the price under 6000 Euro that have more potential downhill. With 17,7 kg, the Trek Downhill-Bike tends to be one of the heavier bikes on the market. We like: 25 years warranty on the frame!
