Trek Travel, born out of award-winning Trek Bikes, believes that riding a great bike on a cycling vacation is as important as awe-inspiring scenery or a glass of fine wine. To this end, the 16-year-old bicycle touring company is pleased to announce an entire fleet of new bicycles in 2019 offering superior braking performance, unsurpassed safety, and unrivaled comfort.

All Trek Travel guests who book trips in 2019 will be cycling on the latest Trek Domane SL 7 Disc with hydraulic disc brakes. This latest upgrade once again puts Trek Travel at the forefront of cycling tour operators by offering their guests the most refined cycling experience available. These new road bikes compliment Trek Travel’s awesomely popular pedal-assist electric bike, the XM700+ from Trek Bicycles. Whereas several tour operators charge an upgrade fee on top of the trip price, Trek Travel’s high-quality bikes are always included in the price of their trips.

“Every two years or so we upgrade our bikes to reflect new technologies in safety and comfort,” says Tania Burke, President of Trek Travel. “We’re delighted to be offering Trek’s newest Domane SL 7 Disc with hydraulic disc brakes as we think the superior stopping power and safety of this bicycle is a game changer. Guests now have the ability to slow the bike with a single finger which greatly reduces hand fatigue and brings greater enjoyment to long descents.”

The Trek Domane SL 7 Disc has a lightweight carbon frame with built-in technology, called IsoSpeed) that smooths rough roads around the world. Traditionally bikes have been equipped with a caliper brake which slows the wheel by applying pressure from a soft rubber pad directly to the rim, but with the Shimano disc brakes, rotors (like on a motorcycle) are attached to the wheel hubs, which are slowed by calipers attached directly to the frame. This design allows more consistent and precise braking. Not to mention are safer in a variety of weather conditions. This new road bike is truly the perfect way to see the world by bike.
