Hybrids are mostly pavement-oriented, while mountain bikes are much better in dirt and mud. What bike is the best choice if you want a little of both? Why, the DS 3, of course...

"Dual Sport" comes from the world of motorcycles, where gravel-to-road-and-back adventures need the right machine for the job. The Trek DS 3 does exactly the same job: Adding a sure-footed feel on gravel surfaces and campground trails while still bringing a lightweight feel to the party. The DS 3 starts with an Alpha Gold aluminum frame that benefits from hydroformed tube shapes. This adds torsional strength to the bike while keeping weight low for improved climbing performance and handling. The DS 3's longer wheelbase keeps the bike tracking straight in loose surfaces, as well as improving stability on pothole-strewn roads. An upright fit allows the DS 3 to fit a wider range of riders and flexibilties. Plenty of frame clearence around the 38mm-wide tires ensures fenders will fit fine, while rack mounts make the DS 3 an excellent choice for commuters. There's even an aperture for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) in the left chainstay. A Suntour NEX suspension fork boasts 63mm of adjustable-preload suspension travel, while the lockout knob on the fork crown can shut off the suspension when it feels like overkill on paved trails.

A hybrid works best when paved roads allow the rider to build up speed. The DS 3's excellent 9-speed Shimano drivetrain features "taller" gearing than mountain bikes, ensuring that the rider won't need to pedal like a sewing machine to keep up with traffic. An FSA Dyna-Drive 48/38/28T triple crankset is matched with an 11-34T Shimano cassette for steep climbs, as well as a tall "top gear" when needed.

Keeping speeds managed is the job of Shimano's M315 hydraulic disc brakes. Yes, this is the same brake technology found in your car or motorcycle! A positive brake lever feel, long brake pad life and consistant performance -in the wet or dry- ensures safe stops in all conditions. Bontrager's alloy Tubeless-ready wheels are shod with 38mm LT2 multi-surface tires for efficient pedaling and a smooth ride. A Bontrager saddle, alloy SSR seatpost, alloy handlebar and acessory-ready alloy Blendr stem complete the cockpit of this do-everything machine.
