Triathlon events call for a bike that seems to do everything well, but the importance of aerodynamics cannot be understated. That's why Trek invested so much time and research in producing a frame shape that would work in a wide range of wind speeds, wind directions and environments. Called Kammtail Virtual Foil -or KVF- the Speed Concept is able to cheat the wind and still keep weight low. In addition to a refined shape, the Speed Concept 7.5 is constructed with 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber for incredible strength and light weight. The fork is also OCLV carbon fiber with a clever integrated brake caliper. Mounting points for two bottles, a rear DraftBox and top-tube-mounted Speed Box storage unit keep everything tucked out of the airstream.
With internal cable routing through the base bar and aero bars, the Speed Concept 7.5 pulls the high-drag cables out of the wind. The base bar and aero bar are adjustable with multiple sizes of stems and aero bar mounts. Keeping the athlete comfortable as well as aero is part of the process that makes every Speed Concept rider more efficient (a bike fit session can help any triathlete be more comfortable with less energy spent during the bike split. Please call for details). The 11-speed Shimano Ultegra 52/36T crankset, bar-end shifters and derailleurs provide smooth operation as well as long service life. Bontrager's alloy Race wheels are tubeless-ready and are shod with 23mm R3 tires for a smooth ride quality. A Bontrager Hilo RXL saddle sits atop an alloy blade-style seat post.
