BIKE CHECK: ELB’s Trek Domane

Paris-Roubaix Femmes' reigning Queen Elisa Longo Borghini has a fresh new ride ahead of the Hell of the North

The Domane is back on its natural territory, the pavé of Paris-Roubaix. These are the type of cobbles that strike fear into the hearts of most bikes, whereas the trusty Trek Domane just gets better as the conditions get rougher. Our reigning Queen of Paris-Roubaix Femmes, Elisa Longo Borghini, lent us her sweet new Domane, freshly sprayed in Waterloo and expertly assembled by the Trek-Segafredo mechanics ahead of the Hell of the North.

The 30 kilometers of evil cobblestones spread across the 145km route make Paris-Roubaix the most feared race of them all. It’s for this reason that Longo Borghini and team opt for the Domane, rather than the faster Madone or lighter Emonda. The IsoSpeed technology found on the Domane absorbs the worst of the cobble-shock and has a race-winning track record. The women’s edition of Paris Roubaix was launched in 2021 and both editions were won aboard the Domane, courtesy of Trek-Segafredo athletes Lizzie Deignan and Elisa Longo Borghini.

Scroll on to see Elisa’s new Domane in all its glory, put through its paces in course recon. Elisa’s full set up specification is listed at the end of the page.
