Road bikes are designed to be ridden primarily on pavement for recreation, fitness, and speed. These are the bikes you see everywhere from the Tour de France to the group road ride at your local bike shop. Road bike technology has developed at a rapid pace, and new bikes are lighter, stronger, more comfortable, and faster than ever before.
All Trek road bikes will perform effectively in a wide variety of riding situations, from racing to long distance touring. But each style is designed to emphasize certain rider priorities and be used for a particular type of ride. Determining which style of bike fits your goals is the first step in identifying the one that you’ll most enjoy riding.
Domane is designed to provide the smoothest, most stable ride, and offers the most versatility among our road lines. These attributes make it an ideal choice for endurance riders going out for long century rides, sportive, or fondo events.
Domane is the best choice for riders looking to ride on a variety of surfaces. Its combination of endurance geometry and IsoSpeed technology provide predictable handling, more stability, and an overall smoother ride. This results in more comfort and control over rough, cracked pavement. Additional clearance for wider tires and disc brake options also make Domane an optimal choice for riding on gravel roads.
The Domane family is available in 4 distinct carbon and aluminum platforms with either disc or rim brakes in addition to Women’s models for those riders looking for women’s-specific components.
Émonda is the lightest weight family of road bikes. It’s designed for all-around road racing, with spritely response to pedaling input and quick handling. Because of its light weight and surefooted cornering, Émonda is the bike of choice for riders who love to climb and descend. Whether on long tempo mountain summits or sprinting over short, punchy hills, Émonda riders smile when the road points up.
Émonda’s ride feels more aggressive than Domane due to its H2 geometry. It’s perfect for riders who prize a nimble bike that can change directions with a flick of the handlebars. Émonda is a race bike that’s also great for group rides and cyclists that “just want a great riding lightweight road bike.” Émonda is available in both carbon and aluminum versions and also comes in Women’s models with the choice of disc or caliper brakes that are both extremely lightweight.
Madone is the ultimate race bike, designed to be the fastest road bike on the planet. Riders who hunt Strava segments, rouleurs who leave the peloton to strike out on their own, and those who simply desire the pinnacle of bicycle technology will love Madone.
If Domane is the smooth advantage and Émonda is the lightweight advantage, Madoneis the aero advantage. KVF tube shapes and seamless integration place Madone on the top rung of the aero road bike ladder. Trek’s unwavering commitment to ride quality truly sets it apart from the pack. Madone incorporates IsoSpeed to maintain a smooth ride, not something other aero road bikes are known for.
As the ultimate race bike, Madone is available in mainline and Women’s models.
