The Aluminium Domane range was designed to get you involved in road cycling, out with your friends or training solo, having fun, getting fit and becoming more confident riding. The AL 2 was built in Trek's quality workshop, with a 100 series alpha aluminium frame that provides strength and stiffness where needed and will still maintain a low overall weight as well as being backed by the company's lifetime guarantee. With a carbon IsoSpeed fork, you'll find the vibration from bumpy road surfaces is absorbed and as a result, you'll not only experience a smoother ride but you'll also find your arms won't fatiguing anywhere near as quickly. The IsoSpeed fork also reduces the overall weight of the bike. The AL 2 features 16 quick shifting, reliable gears thanks to Shimano's 8-speed Claris groupset. The Domane aluminium is compatible with rack mounts to make commuting easier with the kit you need as well as having a large tyre clearance that means you can fit mudguards to prevent getting mucky and wet in nasty conditions.
It's right for you if
You're a value-minded rider testing the waters of road cycling and want a drop-bar bike that's an upgrade in feel, speed and efficiency over a flat-bar hybrid or mountain bike. Domane AL 2 is a great choice if you're new to the road and want a quality road bike that you won't immediately outgrow.
The tech you get
Lightweight aluminium frame with mounts for mudguards and a carbon fork – features that are not typically available on road bikes at this price point. The Shimano drivetrain has 16 speeds, with shifters that are integrated into the brake levers so your hands never have to leave the bars. The wide range of gears makes it easier to ride terrain that varies in elevation. Plus, sturdy Bontrager wheels, puncture-resistant tyres and rim brakes.
The final word
Domane AL 2 is an ideal, comfort-first introduction to road riding. It's made for a great fit that's fast but not as aggressive as what you might see in the Tour de France. Plus, it's backed by our lifetime warranty. The unique IsoSpeed Carbon fork, which swoops forward toward the dropouts, absorbs vibrations from the road so your arms won't fatigue as quickly.
