Trek 2.5 Triple

Trek 2.5 Triple Overview

The Trek 2.5 Triple is designed to bridge the gap between budget road bike options and the high-end, professional ranges like the Madone. As such, it borrows the geometry from this venerable, competitive series but combines it with a light, inexpensive aluminium frame, a carbon fork from Bontrager and a host of Shimano components to give serious riders a powerful racing compatriot.

Trek uses its own aluminium frame technology but the fact that it has put a carbon fork on the 2.5 Triple hints at the thoughts of greatness that are behind the bike. The carbon fork is a little more sympathetic than a metal alternative as it will be better equipped to dampen the rumble of the road without sacrificing lateral stiffness so you can still accelerate quickly when required. The bike not only takes on straight-line speed with gusto but also provides you with a stable platform, which can handle well in the corners. It is light and swift whatever the conditions ahead and the addition of a carbon seatpost reduces its total weight further so that stages with winding mountain roads will be less of an uphill struggle.

The Trek 2.5 Triple cuts a dashing, modern figure with its race-ready frame geometry marked out with white, blue and silver detailing. The Bontrager rims and tyres help to show that this is a serious piece of kit whilst the Shimano Ultegra components are reassuringly chunky, giving you confidence in the bike and allowing it to keep on trucking after taking the seemingly endless punishment dealt out by the open road.
