Trek has unveiled a custom paint scheme that highlights the unique personality and talents of Trek-Segafredo star John Degenkolb. An accomplished pro, Degenkolb is best known for his talent early in the cycling season with wins at both Milan-San Remo and Paris-Roubaix, two of cycling’s greatest monuments. The 28-year-old German will ride his custom Domane SLR alongside the rest of Trek-Segafredo throughout the Spring Classics.
The unique paint scheme is inspired by Degenkolb’s personal style and off-bike passion—namely classic café racer motorcycles. Conceptualized by Trek graphic designer Micah Moran, the design takes cues directly from the racer’s custom motorcycle Degenkolb often rides in and around his hometown of Frankfurt, Germany.
A base of hand-scuffed liquid metal is complemented with a dark smoke tint and clean racing stripes. Pops of glossy red smoke add contrast, and Degenkolb’s lucky number and removable team logos complete the design.
Each John Degenkolb Café Racer Domane is hand-painted at Trek’s headquarters in Waterloo, Wisconsin. The unique paint scheme is available on the Domane SLR and SLR Disc platforms, in addition to the Domane SLR Race Shop Limited and the all-new Domane SLR Race Shop Limited Disc.
Race Shop Limited models feature Trek’s Pro Endurance geometry, which provides a lower, longer, more aerodynamic riding position than the Endurance geometry found on Domane SLR. Riders looking for a racier disc bike that is still comfortable on long, rough rides will be thrilled with the introduction of Domane SLR Race Shop Limited Disc.
The John Degenkolb Café Racer Domane is available now to riders around the world through Trek’s Project One platform.
