Details

Trek's Speed Concept 7.0 takes your speed to a new level with their wind-cheating Kammtail frame shaping that makes you faster, even in cross winds. Trek also tucks the rear brake, wheel quick releases, cables and the computer sensor away from the wind for even more free speed. And, you'll love the precision SRAM Apex components with a compact crank for easier climbing and bar-end controls so you can stay in an aero tuck. Plus, this road rocket boasts aero Bontrager SSR wheels and a fine Bontrager aero bar and stem. Get ready to fly!

Three years in the making, Trek's Speed Concept takes revolutionary design paired with a groundbreaking aero shape to make the cleanest integration of brakes, cables, and electronics ever seen on a bicycle. It's the fastest way to the finish. (Click images to enlarge.)

Cross winds greatly affect the aerodynamics of a bike. Most TT bikes have low drag when the wind is straight on, but in the real world, it's almost always a cross wind. The Speed Concept's Kammtail shape maintains its full aero benefits at any yaw angle. The result? Your bike is faster in any situation. Look Ma, no cables. You can look for the brake and shift cables, but you won’t see them—and neither will the wind. Cables contribute a massive amount of drag, and routing them internally through the bars and frame eliminates that drag and maximizes speed. The Speed Concept's rear brake is actually built into the fuselage. This innovative setup results in less drag and cleaner lines—a faster, sleeker, better solution.

Even the quick-release skewers on the Speed Concept increase its speed. Trek integrates them into the shape of the bike for faster aerodynamics. Computer sensors create unwanted dirty air—but not if you build them seamlessly right into the frame. Speed Concept is the first TT bike to integrate electronics into its aerodynamic shape. Out of sight, out of the wind. The minimal frontal surface area of Speed Concept, combined with its svelte shape, makes the bike slice through the wind effortlessly, so more of the power you apply to the pedals translates directly into speed.

Great bike, but the noise coming from inside the frame is simply horrible. I can hear the noise even when I have my earplugs in and music on. Very dissappointing for an expensive bike

I saw this bike a few weeks ago and liked the weight and the feel. I did a little research about it reading all reviews good and bad. After enough research was completed I decided go ahead and buy one. I only have one 20 mile ride since I bought it and the difference between this bike and my old bike was like night and day. It feels like it almost pedals itself. When I push a little harder an immediate result is felt. The balance feels good and the way the handlebars are set it's pretty easy to get into a rhythm. Gear changes are prefect and you barely feel the gears actually switching. I would honestly buy this bike again. This bike is freaking awesome! Thanks for a well made product.

Problems from the factory with cables in lower bracket; seat adjustment screw stripped, from factory; bolts falling out on a regular basis. No, not happy at all with the Trek.
