Trek announced the Domane+ HP, a new addition to their e-road bike range. It uses a Bosch motor and battery, with up to 150 miles of assist when used with the add-on Range Boost battery. There are two levels of spec – plus immediate availability in the Project One custom program.
Trek Domane+ HP long-range e-road bike
It wasn’t long ago that Trek launched the 2020 Domane+ LT. That bike uses the lightweight and compact Fazua e-bike system, and is targeted as a low(ish) weight, stealth e-bike (plus you can entirely remove the system to turn it into a ‘normal’ bike). The new HP version opts for a powerful Bosch motor, a single chainring drivetrain, and a much longer range.
The Bosch Performance Speed model provides assistance up to 28mph, making this a Class 3 e-bike in the US. A full 75NM of torque mean that you’ll feel a substantial boost, similar to the Shimano E-8000 system.
A 500Wh PowerTube battery is integrated into the down tube. It can be charged via a port on the left side of the bike, or removed entirely. An additional 500Wh Range Boost battery is available, though Trek has not released any images or details as of yet. Does it go in a bottle cage like the Specialized Creo Turbo SL? We did stumble upon this page, which suggests that the battery bolts to the back of the downtube, similar to their Allant+ hybrid bikes.
Integrated daytime running lights add a measure of practicality, along with fender and rack mounts.
The Bosch Kiox unit controls power and light systems, along with anti-theft protection.
A Praxis crank with 46t chainring puts your power into motion. Interestingly, the bike opts for a Shimano GRX gravel groupset. Trek did not provide any specific reasoning on this spec, but we have to imagine it’s for chainline reasons, and for a wider potential gearing range than the Ultegra RX derailleurs.
Trek also opts for GRX spec on the brakes, with 160mm rotors front and rear.
Five sizes are available, all using 700c wheels.
