Trek’s Domane platform just got a little more accessible. Adding to their aluminum side, the ALR series is now joined by the new AL 2 and AL 3. Built on the principals of the Domane with wider tires and an emphasis on versatile, all day ride comfort, the AL series drops the price substantially making the Domane even more accessible to riders around the globe…

Offered in both men’s and women’s models, both the AL 2 and AL 3 use an Alpha 100 series aluminum frame along with a carbon IsoSpeed fork. Frames are equipped with hidden rack and fender mounts to build in versatility, and will ship with 28mm tires with clearance for fenders. All frames utilize a 1 1/8″ integrated headset, 27.2mm seat posts, and a threaded bottom bracket. Further customization can be added with the Bontrager Blendr mounts on the stem for accessories, as well as the DuoTrap S sensor compatibility.

The biggest difference between the AL 2 and AL 3 is the choice of drivetrain, with the AL 3/AL 3 Women’s going with a full Shimano Sora 2×9 drivetrain while the AL 2/AL 2 Women’s will run Shimano Claris. Built with Trek’s Endurance Geometry, the women’s models will include women’s specific touch points and an altered size range. Pricing for the AL 3 is set at $929, while the pricing for the AL 2 is TBA. Available immediately, check out trekbikes.com for more details.

Is it even a Domane without an IsoSpeed decoupler? How is that not the lede of this article?

Lack of Isospeed is notable, but not the only detail that makes the Romans what it is.

These are entry level bikes with more endurance focused geometry. The bikes are parallel to the Emonda series, but more relaxed.

What people seem not to care of is that Domane is the ONLY bike on the market with extremely low bottom bracket (75-80 mm depending on size).

People….”Lack of Isospeed”….”endurance focused geometry”….”extremely low bottom bracket”….wow….none of it means anything to me. I’m just considering getting a road bike to add another facet to my exercise routine. I may not know much about this but I like the bike.

The title of this article is misleading. These bikes are basically the One Series available through last year with wider forks and tires, and they are actually MORE expensive than last years models. For example, the 2017 1.2 was listed at a local Trek store for $849 but the new model (2018 AL 3) is listed on the website for $899 – lower than the $929 listed above, but still more expensive than before.
