[PHOTOS] 2014 Trek Domane 6.2 - Blistering Speed, Incredible Comfort, Amazing Stability

Don't Endure. Conquer With The 2014 Trek Domane 6.2!

Every year, Trek outdoes themselves in every category. The road category is no exception. Trek shows no sign of slowing, and they don't want you to show any signs of slowing either. Let's take a look at the features of the 2014 Trek Domane 6.2.

FIRST: It's worth mentioning that you can customize this bike to your hearts content using Trek's Project One bike building program.

And now, on to the bike itself. Trek points out very clearly on their website that this is the WORLDS best endurance bike. How can they make this claim?

IsoSpeed Technology

The IsoSpeed Decoupler isolates the seat tube from the rest of the frameset, DOUBLING compliance and smoothness with ZERO performance drawbacks.

The IsoSpeed Fork is a one-two punch: 30% more stiffness dramatically improves handling, and the additional compliance from the ride-tuned sweep makes for a smoother ride.

Frame Composition Geometry

• OCLV Carbon (Optimum Compaction, Low Void) manufacturing process, enabling Trek to produce carbon bikes with consistency and quality previously thought impossible.  Each level of OCLV offers the best ride for the money, thanks to an optimal balance of areal weight, stiffness, and compliance. The 600 Series featured on this bike is made of advanced aerospace materials using weight-saving, performance-enhancing technology to achieve the best frame weight/stiffness combinations in the industry.

• As it should be, Trek has developed the world's most comfortable racing geometry. This is the most advanced endurance racing bike after all. They still kept a "racy" feel in the bike, but extended the height of the head tube slightly so you will be more balanced over the bike and greater comfort for your back. Trek has considered every frame construction and fit detail over more than two years to arrive at the perfect balance of speed, stability, and smoothness.

Drivetrain and Other Features

• Obviously we could go on and on about Shimano Ultegra Groupset, but we'd rather talk about how awesome it is to be able to run an integrated electronic drivetrain. "Specific cable stops and proprietary seat tube battery mount or bottom bracket mount allow for a perfect interface with industry-leading electronic drivetrain systems without a single zip tie or strip of tape" These cable connecters are 7mm wide instead of the standard 4mm, though Trek includes specific adapters for both, so you don't need electrical tape. Plus, it makes for a sweet, clean look on the ouside of the bike and keeps your cables out of your way.

• The Ride Tuned seatmast is the lightest, most comfortable solution for day-in, day-out performance and comfort. The no-cut design eliminates traditional seatpost clamping forces, so we can use less material at the seat tube junction, resulting in a lighter frame. Most seatmast systems have to be cut leaving little or no room for adjustablity. This design has more that 10cm of adjustment, making it the most adjustable system on the market.


• Trek is concerned about your comfort as well: that's why they placed a Bontrager Race Lite IsoSpeed handlebar to complete this bike. Vibration from rough roads can cause numbness, fatigue, or even loss of control. The integrated IsoZone handlebar pads reduce vibration displacement by 20% while keeping the same ergonomic profile. You get comfort and confident control, with less additional weight than add-on solutions like gel padding or double wrapped tape. The actual bar is ergonomically designed with a compact, shorter drop, a variable radius for a defined braking position, and a flared outer bend for greater control while in the drops.
