Looks like the internet rumours are true. Aaron Gwin is onboard the new Trek 9.9 carbon DH bike for first practice at the Mont Sainte Anne World Cup.

We’ll try and find out as much as we can but the shutters are down at the TWR pits and information is scarce.

  1. Renners

    Good work Cato!

  2. Fybcorp

    Nobody do it, please.

  3. Morgan

    Looks like a Kona

  4. tom

    looks like a trek!!

  5. dirt dodger

    why go back to that sort of inchage? the session 88 has been so popular.
    i am right in assuming the 9.9 means travel?

  6. Renners

    Perhaps it’s the next logical name after ’88′, the only problem being that the ’99′ would have looked like a Trek but sounded like an ice cream, hence the ‘.’

  7. Neil

    Does Gwin really need help to go faster?

  8. ed@dirt

    I’m guessing the name has simply come about cos Trek call all their top end carbon bikes ’9.9′, i.e. Remedy 9.9

    Hi all,

    The 9.9 is not a reference to travel. That’s how we designate bikes at the top of the model range. Same as Remedy 9.9, EX 9.9, Top Fuel 9.9…

  10. Dave Walker-Blair

    fybcorp….. looks like a trek

  11. Will

    9 is their top of the line. If its 9.x, its a top of the line carbon frame.

  12. Steve

    looks like a norco

  13. Rod Kimble

    Looks sick!

  14. rick

  17. ronin

  18. leo

    not trying to flame…but actually it’s pretty similar to the norco, anywyas there is no critcism in that

  19. Christiaan

    Wonder how much that will ost frame only……

  20. tom

    sorry for my ignorance, but how can we tell it’s a carbon frame?

  21. Adam Cosgrove

  22. pilha

    why are you triyng to kill aaron gwin??? xD
    anyone knows the weigh?

  23. Dave

    @Tom look at the joints where the tubes meet, carbon frames don’t have welds.

  24. Philby

    The carbon looks good but I want to know what’s with those older mallets and those massive pins. Gwin’s foot isn’t going any where!!

  25. dirt dodger
