Cyclocross Superbike - 2016 Trek Boone is One of Two New CX Bikes!

Trek Adds Disc Brakes To More Models In The Boone Line for 2016

Just before the World Championships, Trek released two new cyclocross models. The 2016 Boone and 2016 Crockett.

Boone is Trek's fastest, smoothest, lightest Cross bike ever, with competition-crushing race geometry and exclusive course-smoothing IsoSpeed technology. While the Boone’s IsoSpeed decoupler is inspired by that originally designed for the Domane, Trek re-engineered it for the Boone, moving its location in line with the seat tube, rather than in front of the seat tube as it is on the Domane, to make the top tube taller and make shouldering the bike easier and more comfortable.

Cyclo-cross riders are still somewhat split between mechanical and disc brakes, but favor is beginning to fall towards discs and that’s reflected in Trek’s new range – with the Crockett exclusively available in disc builds and only one cantilever-equipped machine in the Boone range, though both will be available as a frame only in disc and cantilever versions.

The 2016 Trek Boone comes in 6 models - from the entry level Boone 5 Disc, all the way up to the 2016 Boone 9 Disc. The Boone 7 and Boone Race Shop Limited come with the option of standard mechanical brakes or disc. 

The Boone and Crockett disc frames use a thru-axle at the front as Trek say this allows for “more precise steering and confident braking while reducing weight and eliminating flex.”

Mud, sweat, tears, triumph. You'll charge through it all with bigger speed, stronger lines, and more confidence than ever before. Boone is the ultimate Cyclocross superbike.
