#32 Trek Superfly 100 Elite SL

One of the world’s lightest full-suspension bikes got significantly lighter with this year’s trimmed-down Superfly 100. That, despite relatively heavy (albeit perfectly performing) Shimano Deore XT derailleurs and brakes. It’s an airy, fast cross-country bike with a versatile Fox CTD (climb-trail-descend) rear shock, though certain parts—tires, for example—are a touch underwhelming.
