Trek make Fabian Cancellara’s Domane available to public

Domane Classics Edition features aggressive 'Pro Endurance Geometry'

Trek have made the Domane Classics Edition frame ridden by Fabian Cancellara available to the paying public.

The American firm launched the Domane, which features an innovative ‘IsoSpeed’ decoupler to isolate the seattube and toptube and thereby improve comfort, in March 2012, but until now the ‘Pro Endurance Geometry’ has only been available to Cancellara and his team-mates.

The Trek Domane Classics Edition will be available in this Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 build for £8,800

A lower headtube and a longer toptube (which also increases the wheelbase) help Cancellara achieve his preferred riding position. By way of comparison, a 56cm Classics Edition frame has a short 12cm headtube and 56.2cm effective toptube, while the equivalent size in the Domane 6.9 has a 17.5cm headtube and 55.4cm toptube.

The Classics Edition frame also has additional tyre clearance and a one-piece steel derailleur hanger/dropout which Trek say results in more precise and durable shifting on rough roads. The frame also loses the invisible mudguard mounts that feature elsewhere in the Domane range.

“I believe it’s very cool that Trek makes ‘my’ bike available to consumers,” said three-time Paris-Roubaix winner Cancellara, who worked with Trek to develop the Domane.

“It’s a very special bike for me. Together Trek and I have put a lot of time and energy in the development of the Domane and I’m happy that it’s out there now.”

The Domane Classics Edition will only be available as a complete bike build, in Trek team colours with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 and Bontrager Aeolus 3 D3 wheels wrapped in 25mm Bontrager R4 Hard-Case Lite tyres for £8,800, or through Trek’s Project One customisation programme.

“This is a bike that riders have asked us about since we first unveiled the bike in 2012 and it’s really exciting to be able to offer it as a custom option with Project One,” said Trek’s road brand manager Michael Mayer.

The Domane range now extends from the Classics Edition to the £1,000 Domane 2.0, based around an aluminium frame.
