Final Thoughts


Having had both a 27.5” and 29er Remedy of my own in the past it was so refreshing to see the new Remedy has been revisited with the changes made that I always wanted on the models I have owned in the past. Sure, on paper the changes are few, but when aligned together out on the trails they really do result in the spotlight hitting the Remedy and showing that it does now feel like a much more refined bike than ever before. The Remedy now sits firmly in line with the Slash as the weapon of choice for riders looking for a bike with 27.5” wheels that will help them push their limits and abilities on a mountain bike. You’ll certainly do so much more than just go downhill.
