Since helping Trek to develop the new Domane SLR, Fabian Cancellara has used the bike to win Strade Bianche and come second in the Tour of Flanders. On Sunday, at Paris-Roubaix he will hope to take the fourth victory of his career atop the specially painted frame.
The Domane SLR features a unique mechanism that allows the rider to adjust the amount of flex in the seat tube with a bolt behind the bottom bottle cage. At the Tour of Flanders, Cancellara had the adjustment in the middle - between the Madone-like stiffness and the plush ride of the standard Domane.
The Domane also features a second IsoSpeed setting at the front inside the steerer tube, allowing for a similar adjustment to the stiffness in the front end.
In honour of Cancellara's upcoming retirement, the artists in Trek's paint department decorated the top tube with a special textured treatment to symbolise the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix, and list off all of Cancellara's podium results in the Hell of the North.
For Paris-Roubaix, Cancellara is using the Pro Endurance Geometry, which has a lower bottom bracket and longer wheelbase.
Trek announced earlier this month the range of Domane SLRs that will be on sale to the public.
