2011 Trek Superfly Elite (Gary Fisher Collection)

Trek's Superfly Elite is the epitome of speed, period. This full-carbon beauty sets the standard for race hardtails everywhere with a monocoque frame that's sick light, crazy stiff and uses all of Gary Fisher's proven geometry secrets. Leading the charge, Trek's E2 tapered head tube and Fox's 100mm custom fork delivers telepathic handling, authoritative control and precise steering, too. It keeps getting better, a full X.0 group with a 2-ring set up supplies power to tubeless-ready Bonty RXL scandium wheels. The rest of the gear is just as sweet with RXL components including a carbon post and Avid XO brakes. The Superfly: proven in races, adored on trails.

    Comments:

    I got the superfly elite HT after already having a 2012 X-Caliber custom build. I can immediately tell the difference in climbing performance and handling response between the Al frame and the carbon. I'm on the lighter end of the weight scale so I don't immediately feel the need for the 15mm thru axle and the large tapered steerer. When the going gets fast and rough the difference these specs make are amazing. They make the handling of the bike faster and more responsive. Don't be afraid to splurge here, as with all G2 bikes it climbs and descends well. Where this bike will really shine is when the pace picks up and handling becomes more of a pressing issue. Be sure to give the Trek suspension calculator a try to help get a good starting point for the fork settings. No complaints here, bike has been durable for the first part of its life here. It will be tested throughout the year for sure.

      great race bike, very fast and stiff for optimal power to the pedals. the 2x10 drive train is perfect and simplifies the bike that much more. the bike has a very responsive geometry and is worth the weight in gold.

        I have been racing this bike all season mostly in marathon and endurance events in Colorado. I was a bit nervous about a hardtail for 100 milers but the Superfly Elite has been absolutely perfect - light, comfortable, handles well. Taking it to Tasmania next week for the adventure race world championships - 5 days of racing. Hopefully the Superfly will come home with some rainbow stripes.

          This is my main bike, so it has to versatile. During the week, it works extremely well as a commuter. Club rides (with the roadies) on Saturdays and XC racing on Sundays. It does it all and, and well. From the fast and furious cyclocross races to the occasional double century, I feel like the Superfly gives me an unfair advantage. I love this bike!

          I love this bike - wish i could ride it. I purchased my first Superfly Elite 6 months ago and really think it is one of the best bikes i have ever had. I did the Cape Epic on this bike and it performed exceptional in all conditions... the only problem is that i am now on my third frame. There seems to be fundamental problems with the Bottom Bracket and front Derailleur mounting. In both cases cracks developed. Thank goodness for a "life long guarantee" other wise i would be hurting financially.

          This is definitely my favorite ride to date. I rode a Superfly 100 last season, but the bike was a bit small. I am 5ft11, and a large size works much better for me than the 17.5 in this geometry. If you are at the 5ft10/11 size, I would definitely make sure you ride both sizes before buying. As for the Superfly, it is stiff and comfortable and I am hardly missing the rear suspension. I did convert to tubeless straight away, and I found running the lower PSi's really softens the rear triangle. The XO 2x10 has been flawless so far, and I compare it just as good as last years XX. I really like Crossmark tires, so switched to them before even giving the skinny Bontragers a try. I like a bit more width and volume than the stock tires would provide. I did like the new seat the bike is spec with, and would compare it close to the front end shape of the Fizik I ride. I am really looking forward to putting this bike through the paces on a few Mountain Bike races this season.

            I owned the original Superfly and think this is a great step forward. The internet tells me that it is lighter, which is nice. The newer seat design is great. I really think that the tapered head tube has improved the steering of an already nimble bike. The change in BB shell, and Cranks has definitely stiffened up the power transfer. Going to 2x10 is really great. I found that on my original Superfly the little and big ring were pretty useless, but I din't quite have the range I would like. The 2x10 makes so much sense with the changes that 29'rs make on Gear inch development and torque.

              Should say Gary Fisher on the down tube. Other than that, the greatest bike I have ever owned. Gary is the man when it comes to Mtn. Biking and his name deserves to be on the bike. I love you Gary!

                  I have had an 08,09 and 10 Superfly. All amazing bikes that I totally had a great time on. Now this 2011 is way off the chart in all ways above grade. The frame is a lot stiffer and noticabley more responsive. The 100mm fork, way cool! As hard as i'm trying to, I can't find a thing wrong with this new 2011 Trek Superfly!

                    Don't get me wrong ! I love Trek bike .... But I love Gary Fisher bike even more. To me ...Gary Fisher name is an " ICON ". So to compare Year 2011 new Trek/Gary Fisher MTB bike and Year 2010 Gary Fisher's MTB bike. I rather buy the Gary Fisher Year 2010 MTB bike, because it is more beautiful to look at & most of all ... it is an ' ICON ". In fact, I purchased the Year 2010 Gray Fisher Superfly Hardtail instead. Looking forwarder to see Gray Fisher name with its own name again, as it is an ICON for many Gray Fisher fans in the World. Gary Fisher ... I love you ! Gratefully, Goh Hiromi Singapore
