Trek expands endurance range with new entry-level Domane AL aluminum models

by CyclingTips

Trek has announced two new entry-level Domane AL aluminum models to fill out its collection of endurance road bikes, featuring the same relaxed riding positions, forgiving handling, and 28mm tire clearances as other rim-brake Domanes, but without the mechanical front and rear bump-absorbing devices that grace the more premium versions.

Other features include TIG-welded 100 Series Alpha aluminum frames, IsoSpeed carbon forks with straight 1 1/8″ steerers, tubeless-compatible aluminum clincher rims, front and rear fender mounts, and rear rack mounts.

Trek will offer two Domane AL models each for both men and women, either with Shimano Sora or Shimano Claris drivetrains, depending on region.
