Trek Superfly Range Updated for 2014

Trek have overhauled their range of Superfly carbon and alloy bikes for 2014, trickling technology from the top-end models lower down the price points. The alloy hardtails and full-sussers get updated frames, benefiting from the top-end SL models, so they’re lighter, with internal cable routing and rear bolt-thru axles.

Superfly alloy hardtails – 200 grams lighter frame

The Superfly 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 alloy hardtail has been hugely updated. A revised frame design with new hydroformed tube profiles has chopped 200 grams off the weight. Critically, even though it’s clearly a race-focused hardtail, they claim to have increased compliance – how much vertical deflection the frame offers – by up to 24%. That should make it a bit more comfortable when barrelling down a rough trail.

Superfly 7: £1300

Trek Superfly 7, which costs £1300.

Features borrowed from the pricier carbon hardtail include the Balanced Post Mount brake mount, Closed Convert rear thru axle and E2 headtube. And importantly, as far as stiffness is concerned, a bolt-thru rear axle. While almost standard on longer travel full-sussers, it’s rare to see this on an alloy hardtail. All cables are routed internally and there are PressFit bottom brackets.

The range starts with the Superfly 5 costing £1,100, rising to £2,000 for the Superfly 9.
