Trek Domane Gravel bikes launch in carbon and alloy

Proven frameset now gets adventure-ride tires

Trek is now officially in on gravel. 

With its frame-flexing IsoSpeed design, the Trek Domane was already a great bike for riding on dirt, cobbled and gravel roads, but now the company has a line of Domane Gravel bikes in carbon and aluminum frame options that come with 35mm Schwalbe G-One Allround tires

The Domane Gravel is the first dedicated bike for gravel from the Wisconsin brand. It features the same frame as the current Domane line, with tubeless wheels and the fat Schwalbe tires being the primary differences.

Of course, you could already ride the existing Domane on gravel. But this bike is spec'ed for dirt roads with tubeless wheels and 35mm Schwalbe G-One tires
