2015 Trek Domane 6.9 Disc Review, Features and Specs - Bumsteads Bicycles

Dont endure. Conquer. 

The Domane 6.9 Disc may use the original Domane mold but with heavy re-tooling around the drop-outs the take away is something significantly different than what we experienced with the original Domane or the Classics Edition. 

Boasting Shimano’s R785 hydraulic Di2 disc brakes and levers adds incredible stopping power and single finger modulation, but when its combined with additions like front and rear thru axles, fender mounts, and a host of Trek specific proprietary features the Domane Disc easily becomes the most versatile machine in Trek’s line.

The amount of torsional rigidity provided by the thru-axles was surprising and eye-opening at how much flex there really is with a standard quick-release design. Otherwise, the 6.9 felt like a Domane with an excellent ride quality, thanks to the IsoSpeed decoupler that creates a pivot point between the seat tube and top tube joint in order to greatly improve compliance.

Contructed from the proven 600 Series OCLV Carbon frame, with race-optimised cable routing,Trek IsoSpeed decoupler gives you an incredibly smooth ride with exceptionally stable geometry and flawless gear shifting.

Grand Fondos, centuries, long rides on not-so-smooth roads? The Domane is your bike. Crushing the competition over Europe's cobbles? Well, that's Fabian's thing. And now it's yours as well.
