Color options

We will start with color options and on the entry level P1 you can choose from the Viper Red/Charcoal-Black Fade as in the featured image of this post. It’s also available in Radioactive Yellow/Viper Red, Solid Charcoal/Radioactive Orange.

It’s worth noting that the standard model in Matte/Gloss Trek Black is €500 cheaper than the P1 bikes and is identical in all aspects bar the color. So if you can live without a radioactive yellow bike then you could keep that €500 in your back pocket for your next Ironman entry.

The 2018 bike has had a complete re-spec from the outgoing 2017 model. It has the new 8000 series Ultegra throught compared to the old model running Sram. It also comes as standard with 50mm carbon wheels in the shape of a brand new model from Bontrager, the Aeolus 5 Comp.

These wheels are also available to buy now if you fancy upgrading your current bike over here

The bike has a fully integrated cockpit and the only exposed cables anywhere on the bike are where they attach to the deraileurs both front and rear. With tons of adjust-ability at the front end it doesn’t matter if you are a long or short course athlete the Speed Concept can be set up to suit all distances, either relaxed or aggressive positioning or for experienced or in-experienced athletes.

Integration

Trek were the first company to introduce such a level of integration not only in the bike itself but also in how you carry your food, spares and hydration particularly when it comes to middle and long distance racing.

The front integrated bottle mount can be added as can frame mounted bottle cages. The new Hilo Comp saddle that is standard on the bike can be paired with the Bontrager Hilo integrated rear storage unit which can hold tools, tubes, tubulars, and one or two cages.

The standard black/black model currently sells at €4499 but can also be bought without the carbon wheels if you have your own race wheels at €3999. The other project One Now colors as featured are €5099. (Note: All pricing is correct at time of writing: October 2017)

If you feel like treating yourself or your significant other we would of course be quite happy to chat to you about your weapon of choice. The new range of Speed Concepts are available and in store now at the time of writing and are currently starting from €3999.
