2016 Trek 8.3 Dual Sport
DS Series is the ultimate hybrid: part refined city bike, part adventurous trail ride. Fast 700c wheels, capable suspension, and a light, strong frame make DS the go-anywhere choice.
- Hydraulic suspension fork lockout
- Shimano Acera 24-speed drivetrain
- FSA Dyna Drive crank
- Tektro Novela mechanical disc brakes
- Bontrager H1 saddle
Shock-absorbing fork allows the front wheel to travel up and down over bumps while the handlebars stay steady, for a comfortable, controlled ride.
Allows you to lock out the suspension fork for efficient riding on smooth terrain.
DuoTrap S compatible
DuoTrap S seamlessly integrates a Bluetooth® sensor into the frame, so you can log your routes and track your fitness progress on your computer or smart phone without an external sensor. It works with all the major ANT+ wireless technology players, including Bontrager, Garmin, PowerTap, and SRM.
Internal cable routing
We route shift and brake cables through the frame to keep things clean and simple. And it looks great, too.
Rack & fender ready
Built-in mounts make it easy to add racks and fenders for added versatility.
Alpha Gold Aluminum frame
Our high-performance lightweight aluminum is continuously cold extruded and butted for weight reduction and superior strength. Frames built with Alpha Gold feature some degree of mechanical and hydroforming to create more sophisticated shapes for lighter weight, and are finished using Trek's smooth-weld finishing process.
Mechanical disc brakes
Reliable stopping power in all conditions, including wet and muddy.
Tubeless Ready rims
Bontrager TLR (Tubeless Ready) Road is the first fully integrated tubeless system for the road. No tubes mean there’s no pinch flats, allowing you to run lower tire pressure. With lower tire pressure you can increase traction, control. and comfort, reduce fatigue on you. Best of all, the tire sealant seals up punctures as soon as they happen!
Massive tire clearance
Accommodates 700x35c tires with fenders, or a 29"x1.8" MTB tire without fenders.
Specially designed grips take your hand shape into account for more comfort and greater control.
The Dual Sport difference
Trek Dual Sport bikes are the right solution for the multi-purpose rider, designed from the ground up for weekday-to-weekend versatility. You’ll feel the difference! Comfortable, capable geometry and ergonomic features are essential for the frequent rider. And tire selection is dialed for mixed use: fast & efficient on pavement, capable & confident on dirt.
