Cascade Components Trek Remedy link

Our Trek Remedy link increases bottom out resistance by making the leverage curve more progressive. The progression is increased to 25% from 17%. As a result, Bottom out resistance is increased significantly without having to run less sag than desirable. This keeps the bike tracking well over rough terrain. So small bump sensitivity doesn’t have to be compromised on to gain the bottom out resistance.

To accompany the changes to the kinematics, the Remedy link also subtly tweaks the geometry to make it more aggressive. The head tube angle is slackened by 0.5 degrees and the bottom bracket height is lowered 5 mm. This gives the Remedy a slightly more gravity oriented layout, but doesn’t go as far as converting it to a Slash. Both the high and low settings are still usable with this link as well.

We also swapped the bearings that are used for the shock pivots for the next size up which nearly doubles the load capacity of the bearings. This increases their longevity significantly. The stock Remedy link uses 6800 bearings, which have a static capacity low enough that they are easily overloaded at as little as 50% compression. Our link uses 6900 bearings in their place.

Setup FAQs

No change to the shock is necessary. This link is designed around the stock shock.

We suggest running a 5% higher pressure than what you ran with the stock link. To accompany this add two clicks of LSC to maintain the same damping force at the wheel as before.

You can run the pressure as low as the recommended pressure with the stock link. We don’t recommend going any lower than this though. Since the link relies less on damping to prevent bottom outs you can also try running less LSC to allow the shock to be more active over higher frequency impacts.

At this point we don’t know, but it’s safe to assume that it will.

Recommended Air Pressues

We recommend running a 5% higher air pressure than what’s recommended with the stock link. If you are running more than that with the stock link then keep your air pressure the same for starters. Another way to look at set up is if you are happy with the small bump and are want more bottom out resistance increase your pressure 5% and if you want better small bump keep your pressure the same and slowly increase it until you feel you have found the right balance point.
