Trek's award-winning Domane with the latest Dura-Ace components


Color: Dark Aquatic Green/Shadow Grey

Sizes: 58cm. Please call for size availability

 Trek's Domane has been a race winner, award winner and now features Shimano's updated Dura-Ace 9100 components.

The Domane has been a stalwart machine for Spring Classics racers and century riders alike. With Trek's exclusive 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber at its core, the frame of the Domane SL 8 boasts an incredible strength-to-weight ratio. Using sophisticated frame shaping called Power Transfer Construction, The Domane SL 8 squeezes every watt from every pedal stroke for forward motion. Power-robbing flex is also eliminated at the Domane SL 8's ultra-rigid BB90 bottom bracket. Out-of-the-saddle, uphill charges are no longer met with rubbery frame flex. The front of the Domane SL 8 features a tapered E2 head tube that enhances torsional strength further, giving the bike a more precise feel in high-speed descents and turns. The IsoSpeed fork is also a fully carbon fiber unit, eliminating vibration while reducing weight further. The Domane series of bicycles feature Endurance Geometry that allows the bike to fit a wider range of riders and rider flexibilities. A longer wheelbase than most racing machines takes the edge off rattles and bumps.

But the element on the Domane that has had tongues wagging for the last few years is the IsoSpeed decoupler found at the top tube/seat tube juncture. During an 18-month study, the engineers at Trek refined the IsoSpeed concept, and then handed it off to Trek's pro racers to develop it further. The result has been nothing short of revolutionary, with wins at brutally hard events like Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders. Once it was through the meat grinder of professional racing, Trek knew it was ready for the rest of the world. The concept is forehead-slap simple: A pair of cartridge bearings and a pivot element allow the Domane SL 8 to flex vertically over rough pavement, hardpan and cobblestones. A no-cut Ride Tuned seat mast replaces a seatpost that otherwise increases frame stiffness. The adjustable seatmast cap comes in two lengths and two setback sizes for optimum saddle height and bike fitting adjustment. Reviews have been positive across the board, starting with Gear of the Year from Outside Magazine in 2013. Knowing that continued refinement was still possible, Trek set about balancing the smooth ride with Front IsoSpeed. The top of the headset now features an isolated pivot element that allows for slight vertical flex at the handlebar, taking the edge off broken pavement and potholes. The famous handling of the Domane remains unchanged, giving the rider confidence when tackling ugly "roads" that are barely worthy of the name. A fantastic frameset needs to cover every detail, and the Domane SL cuts no corners. An adjustable 3S chain keeper prevents dropped chains on choppy pavement, while an aperture in the left chainstay for a ANT+ DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) eliminates the need for sloppy zip-ties. Vanishing fender mounts add to the Domane's usefulness as a high-performance commuter. Internal cable routing keeps the Domane SL 8 looking oh-so clean and sleek

The Domane SL 8 needed a refined component group to compliment the frameset, and Shimano's latest Dura-Ace 9100 components fill the bill nicely. Shimano's earlier versions of Dura-Ace took new directions in crank and derailleur design, and the 9100 series continues that approach. The reshaped 50/34T Dura-Ace crankset had about 10 grams removed, and the shifting performance improved as well as overall stiffness. The front derailleur features a new shape and mechanism, yet doesn't add to increased effort at the shift lever. The Dura-Ace rear derailleur boasts a Shadow-style mount borrowed from mountain bike derailleurs for a low-drag approach. Shifting at the back requires less effort with less lever travel to execute a shift. The direct-mount Dura-Ace brake calipers also see aero improvements, as well as better stopping power and lever feedback. Even the adjustment range of the brake lever throw is longer, along with an improved hood shape. The rear cassette is a Dura-Ace 11-28T unit as well. Bontrager's alloy tubeless-ready Paradigm Comp wheelset features stacked spoke lacing that improves lateral stiffness. With 28mm -yes, 28mm- Bontrager H2 Hard-Case Lite tubeless-ready tires, the Domane SL 8 can attack miles of bad pavement while keeping the rider fresher for longer. A Bontrager Affinity Comp saddle, alloy Bontrager Pro accessory-ready stem, and alloy Bontrager IsoSpeed road handlebar complete the cockpit of this century-conquering machine.
