Trek's new FX Sport 5 is what happens when you let the dreamers loose in the design studio. It checks all the boxes when it comes to a high performance hybrid bike that performs beyond all expectations. 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. OCLV carbon fiber isn't just about lightness, though. Strength is a major part of what makes any bike perform better. Pedaling response is better, and overall handling is more precise. Fitness rides over hilly terrain won't be quite as challenging! The FX Sport 5's BB86.5 bottom bracket anchors the crankset for flex-free power delivery, while the tapered head tube adds an extra dash of precision in every turn. 400 Series carbon fiber is already known for soaking up vibration, but the addition of the IsoSpeed decoupler at the top of the seat tube improves ride quality further. A pair of cartridge bearings allow the seat tube to pivot indepedently from the rest of the frame, doubling frame compliance and soaking up harsh bumps and potholes on rides long and short. A light, responsive bike that is also comfortable? The FX Sport 5 does it all! Details found throughout the bike make the FX Sport 5 a better machine in many ways. Vanishing fender mounts and a removeable seatstay bridge allow fender installation, making the bike an excellent commuting option. A 3S chain keeper prevents roadside stops and grimy fingers. There's even an aperture for an ANT+ DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor in the left chainstay (sold separately). 12mm thru-axle hubs front and rear not only guarantee perfect brake disc alignment whenever wheels are installed, but also enhance the bike's overall torsional strength. Internal cable routing adds a sleek look to the bike's lines.
With such an impressive frame, the rest of the FX Sport 5 needed to perform just as well. Shimano's recently redesigned 10-speed Tiagra components are found throughout the FX Sport 5, adding precise operation and shifting with every mile. 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. Alloy tubeless-ready Bontrager Affinity Disc wheels and 700x32c R1 Hard-Case Lite tires add confident grip and easy acceleration. Reigning in speed is the job of Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, boasting outstanding stopping power and lever feedback. even in wet conditions. Bontrager also supplies the Montrose Comp saddle, alloy Comp seatpost, alloy Satellite Plus IsoZone handlebar and accessory-ready alloy Elite Blendr stem.
If you own only one bike for different rides every day, and it needs to be a hybrid, this might be the right bike for every job: The Trek Dual Sport 3.
