Experience the luxurious ride quality and effortless speed of Trek's Silque SLX. Handmade from Trek's 600 Series OCLV size-specific carbon, it's light, stiff, and playful, and with Trek's IsoSpeed decoupler, it's compliant too. The women's ride-tuned geometry gives you confident handling for quick accelerations as well as long, sweeping descents. An Ultegra drivetrain dishes out the easy, precise shifting that Shimano is renowned for, and Bontrager's Race X Lite wheels are wrapped with 25c tires for the perfect combination of speed, impressive ride quality, and low rolling resistance. What's more, Trek keeps the Silque SLX firmly in the featherweight class with a carbon bar and seatmast.
|Trek's Silque is a game-changer. It's a high-performance race machine that's also comfortable enough for even your longest rides and roughest roads. Here are some highlights:
|The IsoSpeed Decoupler allows the seat tube to rotate independently from the top-tube-to-seatstay junction, increasing vertical compliance without compromising pedaling efficiency. It's already been proven with wins in races over the toughest cobbles in Europe.
||Trek's Ride-Tuned No-Cut seatmast eliminates seatpost clamping forces so it can be super-light and soak up road vibrations for ride-all-day comfort. It also offers up to 10cm of adjustment, so a perfect fit is guaranteed.
||The 3S chain-keeper is integrated directly into the frame. It's an elegant solution that prevents the chain coming off on rough roads and under hard shifts. It lets you make any shift you want at any time without worrying.|
|The Silque's internal cable routing offers precision shifting and positive braking in all conditions. It's also aerodynamic, compatibile with modern drivetrains, and it protects the cables to reduce wear and tear and maintenance.
||The E2 head tube tapers from 1 1/2 to 1-1/8 inch and is wider side to side than front to back. This minimizes weight, maximizes power transfer and improves cornering. Result: a more powerful and confident ride.||Vibration is the enemy. So, the Silque's ergonomic IsoZone handlebars feature integrated cushioning pads that reduce vibration by 20%. This means a bar that feels custom bent for you and that maximizes your comfort too.|
|Trek's Domane features a unique bottom bracket that's 90mm wide (traditional ones are 68mm wide). This wide bottom bracket lets Trek build the frame with larger tubes for increased power transfer. Plus, the BB90 is machined so that the bearings can be placed directly into the frame saving weight due to fewer parts, ensuring additional pedaling efficiency and simplifying maintenance and repair.|
For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, tapered head tubes (see image, on left) and forks pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2-inch, see image, on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8-inch). This combination sheds weight compared to straight 1 1/2-inch systems, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to straight 1 1/8-inch systems. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.

I finally took the leap and bought my first rode bike - and am loving it !!! Named her " White Lightening" !!! Love how fast you can go with little effort compared to my hybrid. With my group rides, we are averaging 19 mph !! Do highly recommend this bike. Did change the seat at my fitting, but that was just my personal choice.
It's almost paid off.. and I don't regret this purchase whatsoever!! I love my blue beauty, we went about 2k miles last summer and the shop I had maintenance done at remarked about how new she looks. From casual rides to centuries, this is my go-to bike. It handles great, is smooth as a cloud, and climbs like a dream, plus wind is no longer a deterrent to getting ride in. The carbon is strong and wheels are of excellent, lightweight quality.
