2013 Trek Domane 5.2 C

Trek's Domane 5 Series was developed for Fabian Cancellara to crush the cobbles of Europe. Turns out the things he wanted—speed, efficiency and comfort with zero compromise in weight or performance—are things we all want. Hand made from Trek's 500 Series OCLV Carbon, it's light and stiff, and with genius ideas like their IsoZone tech, it's compliant too. Race-all-day geometry gives you the edge over the competition with confidence-inspiring handling while the specs keep you at the front of the peloton. An Ultegra drivetrain with compact crankset dishes out the silky shifting that Shimano is renowned for and Bontrager's Race wheels are wrapped with 25c tires for the perfect combination of speed, low rolling resistance and ride quality. What's more, Trek keeps the 5.2 firmly in the featherweight class with a carbon handlebar, seatmast and fork.

    Have been riding a 08 Specialized Roubaix and decided to by a new Domane 5.2. Loved the color and looks. First ride was awesome and a lot smoother than my Roubaix. Wether has not cooperated but got in a 30 mile ride and unbelievable. A lot smother over the same rode than the Roubaix. Much quicker to get up to speed and maintain speed. Only have four road rides so far but very impressed.

      Long rides are much less tiring. The Iso shock absorber is no gimmick, it really works. Back and hands with no discomfort after 65 + miles. Buy this in a heartbeat if you are looking for a responsive climber that you can ride all day long.

        Comments:

        Was riding a Madone 3.2. Herniated a disc in my back. Riding after that on the Madone was too hard on the back since the bumps were not absorbed well. Bought the Domane after riding at the store and comparing the ride side by side with a Madone. Very significantly softer ride ie. the bike absorbed the bumps not my back. However, performance and ability to ride fast not degraded at all. By the way, a recumbent bike was intolerable on the back after the herniated disc.

          I have enjoyed riding a full carbon road bike for 15 years. A friend who is a Trek dealer suggested trying this bike with its sloping top tube and micro gearing. What a great ride! It felt as comfortable to me as an easy chair, yet responsive, stable and easy to control. I thought my old bike was lightweight, but climbing hills with this one was much easier and more enjoyable.

            This bike was definitely made for both smooth and rough roads. I was very impressed by the way it handled. I would recommend this bike to anyone.

              Love how light and responsive this bike is! The Viper Red and white make this bike stand out on the road and people turn their heads to look at it. Hills are easier to climb and this bike is very quick from the start!

              A fast hill climbing machine. Overall fit is very comfortable on long rides. If going to go racing this is a good start. The only downer is its not made in the USA.
