Trek Speed Concept 7.0 Triathlon Bike

Trek Speed Concept 7.0 Women's Triathlon Bike

Trek Speed Concept 7.0 Overview

The Trek Speed Concept 7.0 seems to have been modelled around the look of a medieval blade or piece of complex armour because it seems to be cutting through the air in front of it even when it is at rest. It is a triathlon bike with a carbon frame that is very affordable when you consider the cost of owning the other specialised bikes in this category. It will help you shave seconds of your personal best time in the cycling section of a race whilst also being appropriate for training sessions.

Trek has pulled together a suitably impressive list of components and Bontrager leads the way with the Race Lite range that includes a carbon fork, lightweight rims and a carbon seatpost. It also supplies the tyres. Trek gives the Speed Concept 7.0 an integrated rear brake, which allows it to retain a triathlon-friendly frame geometry with an excellent seating position whilst still having a braking set up that can give you control when it is required.

The Trek Speed Concept 7.0 will help you put your serious face on when the time comes to race, thanks to its black and grey colour scheme. The Trek brand is plastered boldly wherever possible but it is not too ostentatious an addition and helps the bike find its identity in a crowded market. Investing in a triathlon bike can be a tricky business and the Trek Speed Concept 7.0 helps to take the strain off your wallet without limiting performance.

Like many cyclists, I've been riding since I was very young and despite now being less-young, I love it just as much. I've done my time on road bikes, have cycled throughout the UK, including Lands End to John O' Groats (yes, uphill!) and now have fun on a mountain bike, in the hills and doing charity bike rides.
