Trek unveils new IsoSpeed carbon cyclocross bikes

After weeks of speculation, Bicycle is unveiling a new line of standard-setting fiber bikes with the announcement of the all-new Boone. After considerable amount of time in development with the world’s premiere racers, Boone is ready to hit the stage as ’s first full line of bikes. The bikes were debuted underneath ’s dynamic duo of and Champion , at the Grand Prix in Baal, .


The revolutionary IsoSpeed decoupler, the key feature of ’s ground-breaking Domane line of endurance road race bikes, has been adopted by Boone’s engineers in a match made in heaven. By isolating the top tube at the seat tube, IsoSpeed doubles the vertical compliance of the frame without any negative effect on power transfer. IsoSpeed is a proven technology that creates a more seamless ride leaving the rider racing faster, stronger for longer periods of time. The adaptation of IsoSpeed for Boone is designed to incorporate all of the ride qualities while leaving more room for shouldered carrying.


Boone’s OCLV construction creates one of the lightest frames on the market while being reinforced with ’s Armor to ensure the bike can race as many days as you need it to. The new internal battery mount and 3S chain keeper borrowed from the Domane line remove the concern of shifting through the elements.

Boone’s geometry was designed in partnership with phenom . After numerous rounds of revisions and refinement, Boone’s pure ‘cross geometry is fast, powerful, and smooth enough to dominate the most challenging course conditions. The bike was well underway when it was first handed to ’s newest athlete, to experience. His feedback? “It’s perfect.”


Boone comes in three models with cantilever and disc brake options (Boone 5 cantilever and disc, Boone 7 cantilever, Boone 9 cantilever and disc). Boone will also be available as a frameset in both cantilever and disc brake options.
