Oct 5, 2018 Update
The first live demo of UB Trex theme is out for Magento 2.2.6. This remains to be a work-in-progress demo, we’re ironing bugs, optimizing responsive layout, and adding further improvements. So stay tuned.

As you might know, Trex is a dynamic free theme with a compelling look and clean code that we first created for Magento 1. This one was specially designed for the bike and bike accessories web stores. We loved it, our members appreciated it too.

However, Trex is 6+ years old now, and it needs a new look in sync with the new-age design approach and absolutely new Magento 2 platform.

Let’s get started. Continue reading
