Is the Trek FX Sport 6 a high-tech road bike disguised as a fitness machine? It depends on what you need it to do...
The FX Sport 6 has features found on cutting-edge road bicycles, starting with lightness. Trek uses their exclusive 400 Series OCLV carbon fiber throughout the frame of the FX Sport 6, helping to keep weight to a minimum for beating your fastest commute time, or taking on a metric century. But high performance can mean other things. The ride quality of a bicycle can help a rider perform at their best by smoothing out rough tarmac. The IsoSpeed decoupler at the top of the seat tube allows the frame to soak up impacts large and small, keeping the rider fresher for longer. The ability of the bike to transfer the rider's power can make a big difference throughout any ride. The oversized press-fit BB86.5 bottom bracket ensures flex-free power delivery, helping the rider to keep up on fast-paced road rides. Precise handling is there, too, thanks to a tapered head tube and 12mm thru-axles front and rear. Need fenders? The FX Sport 6 has front and rear fender mounts for rainy commutes, too!
The FX Sport 6 goes to the head of the class in functionality as well. Shimano's 11-speed 105 road bike components are found throughout the bike, including the derailleurs, 50/34T alloy compact crankset and wide-range 11-32T cassette. These components are designed to work together, boasting lightning-quick shifting and long service life. The flat-bar shifters require less hand strength to operate than previous versions, making gear changes even more intuitive.
The FX Sport 6's tubeless-ready alloy Bontrager Affinity Disc wheels are wrapped with grippy 700x32c Bontrager R2 Hard-Case Lite tires, bringing a smooth feel and easy acceleration to every mile. Tektro's hydraulic disc brakes offer excellent lever feedback and predictable stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine. A Bontrager Montrose Comp saddle provides a comfy perch atop an alloy Bontrager seatpost, while an accessory-ready alloy Elite Blendr stem makes a headlight or handlebar computer easy to install and use. The Satellite Plus IsoZone handlebar and Satellite IsoZone lock-on grips add a last line of defense from rough road chatter.

Impressive lightness is gained when the FX Sport 5 is produced with a 400 Series carbon fiber frame and FX carbon fiber fork. With it, every hill is more conquerable, every incline becomes easier.

With such an impressive frame, the rest of the FX Sport 5 needed to perform just as well.

The Tiagra flat-bar shifters, Tiagra derailleurs, 50/34T compact Tiagra crankset and 11-34T Tiagra cassette all work in concert, ensuring long service life as well as a wide gearing range for hilly rides.
