The tech you get
A 200 Series Alpha Aluminium frame with large tyre clearance, a carbon disc fork, 12mm thru axles, a 2x9 Shimano Sora drivetrain, mudguard and rack mounts, Tektro mechanical disc brakes for all-weather stopping power, Tubeless Ready wheels, and 700x32 Bontrager R1 Hard-Case Lite puncture resistant tyres.
- This bike is exceedingly versatile and suited to a wide variety of riding styles, including gravel rides, bikepacking and daily commutes.
- Tyre clearance of up to 35c for excellent traction and stability (35c gives at least 4mm of clearance to the frame).
- Lively, incredible handling characteristics similar to the World Cup-winning Boone cyclocross, with a touch extra stability.
- Advanced Alpha 200 series aluminium frame.
- Flat mount Tektro C550 disc brakes: more elegant, lighter and smaller than standard disc brakes, providing superior performance for road and gravel bikes.
- Mounts on the seat tube and both sides of the down tube make it easy to carry extra gear and water.
- Internal routing protects your cables, even when the gravel gets muddy.
- High performance: Highly engineered 200 Series Alpha Aluminium frame - Trek's premium aluminium, formed into sophisticated tube shapes for maximum strength and minimum weight. Revolutionary Invisible Weld Technology offers a better connection at each tube junction, increasing strength while using less material. The results are smooth and flawless seams, stronger bonds between the frame's tubes, sparkling aesthetics, and decreased frame weight.
- Tapered headtube: The fork tapers from a 1.5" lower bearing to a 1 1/8" upper bearing. The larger-diameter lower bearing keeps the fork stiffer under cornering loads and distributes forces more evenly, increasing the life of the bearings. Result: a more confident and durable ride.
- Flat mount brakes: more elegant, lighter, smaller and cleaner than traditional disc brakes.
- 3S integrated chain keeper is integrated directly into the bike frame. It's an elegant solution that provides flawless gear shifting even on rough roads and under heavy loads. No more standing on the side of the road, covered in grease, unwedging your dropped chain as competitors race by.
- Blendr Integration: Blendr seamlessly mounts Bontrager Trip computers, Bontrager Ion lights and Garmin computers directly to the handlebars, keeping everything zip tie-free and in its place.
- Mudguard compatible: Mudguard mounts allow for full-coverage mudguards so you can ride comfortably in less-than-ideal conditions.
