Following the launch of the Domane SLR earlier this year, Trek’s expanding the bump-absorbing bike to more platforms, with the new Silque Women’s and three additional models of Domane.
Like their predecessors, the new steeds feature Trek’s IsoSpeed decoupling technology that’s now adjustable and expanded to the front of the bike on certain models of both platforms.
Read our review on the Trek Domane 4.7.
The Silque SLR couples Domane SLR’s features with a women’s ride-tuned frame and new graphics. Adjustable Rear IsoSpeed brings more versatility to the bike, while the addition of Front IsoSpeed balances out the ride and provides a 10% increase in front-end compliance over a traditional road bike, claims Trek. The Front IsoSpeed decoupler allows the steerer tube to flex independently of the head tube on jarring roads, reducing fatigue without sacrificing efficiency or control.
Direct mount brakes are also new, providing additional tire clearance. Silque S features the same updated women’s specific geometry as SLR, in addition to Rear IsoSpeed, and spec with Bontrager componentry.
Meanwhile, the Domane family is joined by Domane SL, S, and ALR, bringing a wide variety of spec levels to the popular endurance road platform. Domane SL, built with Trek’s OCLV Carbon, gains balance and versatility with the addition of Front IsoSpeed and Bontrager Speed Stop Direct Mount caliper brakes on rim-brake versions. The braking system accepts up to a 28c tire with fenders.
Domane S carries forward the platform’s primary features, and gets new colors and graphics, and an OCLV Carbon frame. The aluminum Domane ALR also features rear IsoSpeed Technology, direct mount brakes, and the same invisible weld technology first introduced on Émonda ALR.

This welding technology is claimed to offer a better connection at each tube junction, increasing strength while reducing weight through the use of less welding material.
