The all new Trek Domane SLR is here. This amazing range of bikes features Iso speed technology in the seat stay and headset to deliver bicycles that are as stiff as an Emonda and yet more comfortable than anything you have ever ridden. The rear Isospeed decoupler is fully adjustable and can be tailored to suit your weight, riding style and preferences. The Iso speed decouple offers comfort on the rear end like no other bike; ideal for British roads and terrain. The ability to fit 32c tyres on the disc model further strengthens this bikes claim as the ultimate bike for British roads.

In addition to being super comfortable however the bike is also super stiff. Adjusting the Isospeed decoupler to its stiffest setting, gives you a bike that is just as stiff as the legendary Emonda race bike. This sharpens the whole bike up and makes it more responsive. In fact the new Domane SLR has been winning races before it was even officially announced on Monday 04/04.

This bike therefore is the ultimate 'do it all' road bike and will outperform anything else, whether your riding over cobbles or attacking on race day.

Here's what David our managing director thought of the new Domane SLR after spending a day in the saddle:
