Trek adds new paint options to Project One custom program

by James Huang

Trek today announced three additional paint designs to its already-expansive Project One custom finish program, all of which are available immediately for order.

The Chasin’ Aces theme is inspired by Trek Factory Racing team rider John Degenkolb, and features a retro motif with a matte military green paint coat, bright red fades, and silver graphics. Chasin’ Aces will be limited solely to Madone models.

As the name suggests, the Full Fade scheme blends two complementary colors together in a dramatic fade layout. Thirteen color combinations will be offered on all Project One road, mountain, and triathlon models.

Finally, the Breakaway paint layout pairs two contrasting colors together in more of a distinctly split pattern. Buyers will have their choice of the full array of Project One colors here — meaning they can go as bold or subtle as they wish — but Trek will limit availability to the Emonda SLR 9, Emonda SLR 8, Emonda SLR 6, Emonda SLR 8 Disc, and Emonda SLR 6 Disc models.
