This article originally appeared on BikeRadar

2016 has been a big year for Trek with the launch of its new Domane and the front Isospeed decoupler to match the rear, as well as adding adjustability to the rear too via a seat tube mounted slider, so we expected a quieter 2017.

It seems that 2017 will be quieter on the launch front with instead more variety in the Domane, Emonda and Madone platforms, and some new and serious bikes for women.

Domane and Silque

The Domane and women’s Silque ranges now offer three grades of tech. The range topping SLRs get both Isospeed decouplers and the tuneable rear. The SL’s get front and rear Isospeed without the adjuster, and the base model S gets just the rear Isospeed.

There are plenty of highlights in the range that we spotted including a new SL Disc with Ultegra, and Vision’s highly respected Metron 40 LTD wheels (interesting to see Trek step outside of the Bontrager monopoly they usually have on their bikes) at £3,500 / US$N/A / AU$N/A. 

There’s also an entry level Domane ALR disc which matches an Isospeed-equipped aluminium frame with Tiagra and RS505 hydraulic brakes for £1,300 / US$N/A / AU$N/A.

The Silque S 5 was our pick of the ladies models with an Isospeed-equipped rear OCLV carbon frame, Shimano 105 drivetrain and tubeless ready Bontrager wheels for £1,600 / US$N/A / AU$N/A.

Emonda

SLR10 Race Shop Limited

Trek’s flyweight all-rounder is now a ten-model strong range. At the top of the range is an eTap equipped SLR10 Race Shop Limited. The previous Limited Emonda featured an array of rarefied bling and this new version features Bontrager’s new Aeolus SL XXX tubular wheelset, which comes in at a ridiculously light 976g a pair. Trek informs us that even with this stunningly low weight they’ve put no restrictions on rider weight either.

No official weight for the complete bike was available, and the bike was bolted down, but we’d expect it to be similar to the previous Limited — so expect around 4.5-5kg.

SLR8 Race Shop

If you can’t stretch to the SLR10 Race Shop Limited’s £9,700 price tag, Trek offers an SLR8 Race Shop with the same ultralight, sub 700g frame. It comes with Dura-Ace (although the display model had Ultegra as new Dura Ace hadn’t yet arrived) and Bontrager Paradigm alloy tubeless wheels for £4,400 / US$N/A / AU$N/A.

The Race Shop range can be customised through Trek’s custom bike programme, Project One, and we loved the Gran Premio theme on the display bike with its fluro yellow and pink highlights on a matt black frame.

Emonda SL6

At the highly competitive £2,000 mark Trek offers the Emonda SL6 at £2,100, which uses the slightly heavier 500 series OCLV frame along with Ultegra and Bontrager Race tubeless wheels.

ALR

If you want the team look without the price tag then this impressive aluminium incarnation of the Emonda, the ALR, comes in Trek Segafredo replica colours with 105 and tubeless-ready Bontrager Race wheels for £1,200 / US$N/A / AU$N/A.

Madone

The tech-laden Madone aero bike is now six models strong and includes a great looking women’s version, the 9.5.

This Ultegra Di2 equipped 600 OCLV series carbon comes with Vision’s Metron 40 LTD wheels and all the impressive integration that makes the Madone so special at £6,500 / US$N/A / AU$N/A.

Now the Madone was and is always going to be an expensive proposition, with so many dedicated components it’s going to be hard for Trek to make anything like, say, a 105 equipped version without compromising on the aero goals of the original design. So for the time being the entry price into Madone ownership starts at £4,400 for the 9.2.

For this price you’ll get a one-down-from-the-top 600 series OCLV frameset, Bontrager’s deep section carbon/alu hybrid tubeless ready Aura wheelset and Shimano Ultegra.
