2013 Trek Speed Concept 7.8

TTs are one of the ultimate tests. The wind conspires against you, the sun bakes you and the never-yielding clock just keeps ticking away. Trek's Speed Concept 7.8 is your only friend in this harsh world. This full-carbon secret weapon uses unique Kammtail shapes that actually make you faster, even in cross winds. Of course Trek tuned the carbon so it's exceedingly stiff where you need it to be and compliant where you want it for comfort. Then they hid the rear brake, cables, quick releases and even the computer sensor from the wind. Plus, the specs are all aero, all the time, with slippery Aura 5 wheels, carbon aero bars and extensions, and a carbon seatpost. Then they top it off with a 20-speed SRAM Force drivetrain with TT shifters. You can only count on yourself out on the course, and your Speed Concept.

    Comments:

    Rode it 3 times to get used to the new feel then rode a 24 mile loop I have done for years, the new bike took 6 minutes of my previous best. In Triathlons I am blowing past people like never before. So excited about the bike this might be my first year ever to ride year round (buying warm clothes soon)
