The Aluminium Domane range was designed to get everyone involved in road cycling, out with their friends or training solo, having fun, getting fit and becoming more confident. The AL 2 was built in Trek's quality workshop, 100 series alpha aluminium provides strength and stiffness where it needs to be whilst remaining at a minimal weight as well as being backed by the company's lifetime guarantee. A carbon IsoSpeed fork helps to take out the vibration from bumpy road surfaces as well as reducing the overall weight of the bike. 16 gears on a 32 tooth cassette means that you have enough gears to spin up the hills and race down them. Tubeless ready wheelset helps to drastically reduce the chance of getting punctures even when training in wet winter conditions. Finally, the Al 2 is compatible with mudguards helping you stay clear of muck and road spray as well as being compatible with rack mounts so you can commute easily carrying all you need for the day.
What you're looking for?
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 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. The lightweight aluminum frame has mounts for mudguards and a carbon fork – features that are not typically available in road bikes at this price point. Plus, disc brakes provide better, more reliable braking power than rim brakes in any road condition.
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 stable Endurance Geometry delivers comfort and confidence.
