2016 is a big year for the Domane, and by that we mean that the range of bikes is bigger than ever. Including disc and traditional models there are 16 Domanes in various guises now, giving you a massive range of cobble busting options.
A lot of the existing models have had minor price cuts for the new year, and a few of the new ones still have pricing for 2016 to be confirmed.
Top of the line is the Domane 6.9 disc. The Dura-Ace Di2 drivetrain works in conjunction with Shimano’s R785 shifters and hydraulic disc brakes
All built up around 600 series OCLV carbon frame and rolling on Bontrager Affinity Elite wheels. The 6.9 disc is £6,000, but if disc brakes aren’t your thing then the 6.9 with Dura-Ace Di2 and standard rim calipers. It also switches out the disc-ready wheelset for a pair of Aeolus 3 clinchers, and the price drops to £5,500 accordingly.
There are three other models in the six series, the 6.5, 6.2 and 6.2 disc. The 6.5 is a new addition to the line-up and the top mechanical shifting-equipped model in Trek’s range with Dura-Ace 9000 all for the price of £3,900. The 6.2 and 6.2 disc come with Ultegra and Ultegra/R685 hydraulic brakes and levers respectively.
It’s important to point out that all production Domanes come with an ‘Endurance’ geometry. All, that is, other than the Race Shop Limited Domane Koppenberg Edition frameset, that comes in the same H1 fit preferred by the team. Available in 56, 58, 60 and 62cm frame sizes only, you can’t even get this one through the Project One service and it comes in the Trek Factory Racing colour scheme only.
Below that there’s the Domane 5.9 Ultegra at £3,000 as well as a 5.9 Dura-Ace option as well, and the 5.2 which also comes with a full Ultegra groupset. The four series kicks off with the 4.5 and 4.5 Disc, the latter which blends Ultegra with R685 hydraulic brakes, and well as the 4.3 (£1,500) and 4.3 Disc, rounding off with the 4.1 and 4.0 Disc (£1,400).
The two series is entry level for the Domane, and the point where the frame changes from carbon to aluminium. The 2.3 (£1,100) mixes Shimano 105 11-speed with Bontrager alloy clinchers and the 2.0 is the bottom of Trek’s endurance range at £900.
