While it is expected the veteran will be equipped with the 2018 Emonda for his GC title challenge, Trek is obviously keeping details of the new bike under the radar.
Many of the features on this version of the bike look to remain, with the 2018 version retaining the direct-mount brakes, integrated seat mast and oversized tubing. Contador ran the same mix of Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 and 9100 series components on both bikes at the race, with the exception of the brakes.

Bontrager provides the finishing kit on the bike, featuring an XXX integrated handlebar and stem, XXX bottle cages and a Serano RXL saddle. Contador opts to wrap his handlebar tape from the inside to the bar ends as opposed to the more popular traditional method.
Bontrager also provides the Aeolus3 lightweight carbon wheels, which are paired with Continental Competition tubular tyres. Contador is the only Trek-Segafredo rider to choose Continental tyres, and the brand name is blacked-out with marker pen to prevent any sponsorship conflicts.
Standard gearing of a 53/39t double chainring and an 11-28t cassette is paired with 172.5mm cranks and an SRM power meter.
The distinctive and bold red, white and black design continues on the latest frameset, as well as this one, although the former Tour de France winner has ridden custom-painted frames at the race in the past.
