Details

Trek's Speed Concept 9.5 is a wind-cheating clock-beater sure to give you the edge in your next triathlon or time trial. Trek's slippery Kammtail frame is lighter, stiffer and more aero than traditional designs and comprised of Trek's OCLV2 carbon for awesome efficiency, comfort and handling. High-tech touches include internal cable routing, built-in brakes and computer sensor. Plus, the wheel quick releases even hide from the wind. The Speed is equipped for free speed, too, with slippery 31mm-profile RXL wheels and a precision Shimano Dura-Ace/Ultegra parts group. You're sure to set new PRs on this aero rocket.

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. Speed Concept is the first bike with front and rear brakes 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.

Comments:

Wow, this bike is fast. Crosswind, headwind, tailwind, it doesn't matter. Got this bike as a present for my Ironman race, rode the course for the first time and average went up 2 mph. Great design, great bike all around. The rear brake could be easier to adjust, but for someone who loves to work on bikes, it's just right. The bike works better with the new D3 wheels from Bontrager, those wheels are fast, light, and stiff!
