Trek 2.5 Compact Road Bike

Trek 2.5 Compact Overview

With the Trek 2.5 Compact you can be out of the house and on the road ready to race in seconds. Its whole set up is geared towards making the most of your skills and allowing you to push harder than ever before and get serious results in return. It is priced to be appealing to an audience of enthusiasts who may not want to splash out on world class cycles like Trek’s Madone range but who still want to get the benefits of a race-centric geometry and carbon components, which is precisely what the 2.5 Compact provides.

Trek has rounded up various firms to contribute to the 2.5 Compact. Shimano Ultegra components ensure that the gears can be switched smoothly and provide a flexible ride while brakes from the same range will clamp down consistently and give you plenty of control over the bike. Meanwhile Bontrager is responsible for the tyres, rims and saddle. It is also the provider of the carbon components, which are the fork and the seatpost. Carbon helps to reduce the amount of effort it takes to lug the Trek 2.5 Compact over long distances or up slopes and it also ensures that the ride retains its rigidity while still enhancing comfort.

The Trek 2.5 Compact will have a familiar profile for anyone who is well versed in the world of road racing. It is well built, tightly composed and features an attractive white and silver frame broken up by blue and black branding. It will certainly turn heads for all the right reasons so whether you are using it recreationally or in a race, you will know that you are looking good.
