Trek FX

Trek FX Bikes

What is the Trek FX?

Perfect for: Workouts and quick commuting

Trek has long touted that the FX series is the most popular hybrid bike line in the world. With tons of great features and 6 models to choose from, it's easy to see why. The FX has similar features to many road bikes but comes with a comfortable flat handle bar that keeps riders more upright than traditional drop bars. It's super light and comes with narrower road specific tires, which makes it great for fitness rides and zipping around town. But it's not just for workouts; the FX makes a great commuter as well thanks to mounting options for rear racks and fenders. Six models in the lineup means there's a bike in every pricepoint, so whether you're looking for a starter bike or a full carbon beauty there's an FX for you.

What is the Trek Verve?

Perfect for: Comfortable cruising and dependable commuting

The Trek Verve series is a line of affordable hybrid bikes for riders who prioritize comfort first. It starts with an upright posture that puts less pressure on your hands, wrists, back, and neck. Its extra wide 700x45c tires absorb bumps better than skinny tires and provide great stability on lots of surfaces. The Verve's seat is wider and more padded than most other Trek bikes and some models also come with a shock absorbing seatpost for even more comfort. While the Verve is one of the most comfortable bikes Trek makes, it's no clunky beach cruiser either. With a wide gear range, lightweight frame, powerful disc brakes, and rack/fender mounts, the 3 Verve models are do-it-all everyday bikes that are perfectly suited for adventures and commutes.

Trek Dual Sport

Trek Dual Sport Bikes

What is the Trek Dual Sport?

Perfect for: Exploring and commuting on all surfaces

The Dual Sport series shares lots of features with Trek's other hybrids but takes it up a notch in capability. The DS still has comfortable upright positioning and comes with commuter-ready rack and fender mounts, but is more suited for mixed terrain. The front suspension fork provides 63mm of travel and gives riders more control over bumpier roads, dirt paths, and trails. The DS also comes with 700x40c tires that have more tread for better off-road traction. Plus, there's clearance for tires up to 29x1.8" if you decide to go bigger. There are 4 models in the DS series at varying price points and build kits. The more high-performing models are lighter and come with different drivetrains, tubeless ready rims, and more.
