Trek Lexa S Compact 2011 Women's Road Bike

The Trek Lexa S Compact is a road bike, which is built to last and despite its impressive credentials, it is priced within the reach of most people who are starting to take cycling seriously. It will be a good racing companion but it is also flexible enough to be used for training or simply to experience the pleasure of cycling.

The Trek Lexa S Compact features an aluminium frame, which is sleek and solid. It also has a carbon fork from Bontrager which is not only lighter than an alloy alternative but also much more supple, helping to improve ride comfort and easing the potential for aches to develop over long distances. The Shimano gears provide fast, slick changes that are essential for competitive success and a smooth ride. Many of the other components are from Bontrager, with specifically modified aspects that have been tailored to the requirements of female cyclists so that they are able to maximise their chances of coming first.

The Trek Lexa S Compact has an almost retro colour scheme that blends grey and silver on the frame with baby blue grips on the handlebars. This helps to establish its female-specific design and harks back to the bold hues of the 1980s. It will clearly not be to everyone’s liking but it is inoffensive enough. Trek ensures that all of its models are well constructed and able to withstand thousands of miles on the road and this is played out in the very obvious quality of the Lexa S Compact.
