This Trek road bike that has the handling and pedigree of a Paris-Roubaix winner, yet remains affordable. It's still a Domane.
The Trek Domane AL 3 is much more than a "starter" road bike. The Domane AL has been developed from a proven platform that has conquered Spring Classics, double centuries and hilly commutes alike. The fit and handling of the Domane isn't oriented towards criterium racers. Instead of a short wheelbase and aggressive fit, the Domane's more upright fit, stable handling and longer wheelbase make every mile more comfortable. The slightly taller head tube allows a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilties- to get comfortable with minimal changes (if any) to the Domane AL's components. The Domane AL doesn't handle like a clumsy touring bike, though. It will track though corners and follow curves with ease. Built from Trek's 100 Series Alpha aluminum tubing, the frame displays tapered and shaped lines that enhance strength while keeping overall weight low. A threaded bottom bracket ensures flex-free power delivery with every pedal stroke. Useful details can be found on the Domane AL 3, like the aperture in the left chainstay for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately). A rack and vanishing fender mounts make for easy installation of accessories for commutes and day-trips.
The Domane AL 3 is equipped with Shimano's redesigned Sora 9-speed components. Adjustable-reach dual-control levers are easier to fit, while both derailleurs require less hand strength to operate. A 50/34T Sora compact crankset and 11-32T Sora 9-speed cassette boast a massive gearing range for steep ascents and day-long adventures. Tubeless-ready alloy Bontager wheels are shod with smooth-riding 700x32c Bontrager R1 Hard-Case Lite tires, reducing road harshness while adding confidence-boosting grip in fast corners. The Domane AL 3's cable-operated Tektro disc brakes offer excellent lever feedback and stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine. Bontrager also supplies the alloy seatpost, P3 Verse Comp saddle, alloy Comp VR-S road handlebar and accessory-ready Elite Blendr stem.
