Trek_Silque_SLR_7_Womens_IsoSpeed_endurance-road-bike_road

After the recent update to their Domane with the SLR which we spotted racing the Tour of Flanders this spring with its adjustable seat tube flex, Trek has moved to bring the same classics cobble eating performance not just to more endurance-minded amateur riders, also but specifically to women as well.  That means the addition of decoupled aluminum ALR versions of the Domane, carry over carbon bikes, new carbon SL versions that include front IsoSpeed, carry over carbon tech applied to women’s geometry, and new women-specific SLR tech bikes too. Get the full details on the expanded Domane and Silque line after the break…

The expanded Domane/Silque range is all about giving endurance-inclined cyclists even more options when choosing a Trek road bike at all price points. The newly introduced front IsoSpeed setup comes to the new SL carbon version of the Domane that carries over the first gen IsoSpeed rear and the  women’s Silque SLR that get’s all the premier tech of Cancellara’s race bike. At the same time, bringing that first gen IsoSpeed rear tech over to an ALR aluminum Domane is a big step toward making the bumps absorbing design more affordable.

The new Silque then comes in two versions. The Silque S uses the first generation IsoSpeed rear system that decouples the seattube and toptube and is paired with a regular fork/headset. The Silque SLR though, uses the newest adjustable IsoSpeed system at the rear that lets the rider adjust the flexibility of the seattube to dial in the ideal ride character, and it adds in an IsoSpeed fork interface that tunes out some of the buzz from fork to frame.

The women’s Silque SLR not only gets the newest tech, but gets a frame tuned for a lighter rider to really take advantage of the flex. The Silque also gets a unique graphics design that adds a bit of color without going too far down the pink and purple road. The bikes also add direct mount brakes for extra tire clearance to explore a bit farther off the tarmac. The Silque SLR is available in two completes for $5000/3600£/4500€ with a mechanical Ultegra drivetrain and for $6000/4400£/5500€ with Ultegra Di2. A Silque SLR frameset is also slated to be available in the US only for $3000.

The Silque S uses the same new women’s endurance geometry in a lower cost OCLV frameset. The Silque S starts at $1900/1400£/1800€ for a Tiagra build and goes up to a US-only Ultegra Di2 build for $3500 and a US-only frameset for $1500 (plus two other complete builds in between.)

The new alloy Domane brings that line-up up to four options. The new Domane ALR uses an aluminum frame with a first generation style IsoSpeed rear end to flex and decouple saddle and frame movement, paired with a standard fork interface. The Domane ALR brings the price down with a US-only version for just $1100 with Sora, and the $1350/1100£/1300€ version with Tiagra. A US-only alloy ALR frameset will set you back $950 (really illustrating the value in that Sora build!)

The regular Domane S carries over with the same tech applied in carbon, unchanged from last year’s bike.

A new Domane SL keeps the first gen rear the same, but adds to the carbon frame a new front end that uses the newest IsoSpeed fork interface as well. Again the Domane SLR uses the newest IsoSpeed tech that we saw introduced earlier this spring. The Domane SL will come in a $3500/2400£/3000€ version with mechanical Ultegra and a for $4500/3200£/4000€ version with Ultegra Di2. A US only SL frameset will retail for $2350.

Like the Silque the addition of direct mount caliper brakes to the rim-brake Domanes gives clearance for up to a 28c tire with fenders, plus improves stopping power without an increase in weight.

Patience. Something tells me this isn’t quite the complete lineup yet.

Not seeing the SL with discs…

Also, the ALR Domanes don’t seem to have the same level of craftsmanship on the aluminum welds, compared to the Emondas I’ve seen.
