The all-new Trek Domane lost its super-secret status after winning the 2022 Paris-Roubaix Femmes by Trek-Segafredo’s Elisa Longo Borghini.

The frame receives an updated Kammtail tube shaping and a newly integrated cockpit that improves aerodynamics and gives a clean look.
Both Domane frames have 100 x 12 mm front, 142 x 12 mm rear […]
