The legendary Speed Concept is now even more aero, more integrated and A LOT faster
When the Speed Concept first launched it set the industry standard for performance. More than a decade later, Trek is releasing the third generation Speed Concept (see it now!), and continuing a legacy of pure speed with even more integration and energy-saving comfort than ever before.
You may have already noticed the Speed Concept being ridden by Trek athletes at some of the biggest cycling and triathlon events in the world. The bike proved its World Championship bona fides when Trek-Segafredo’s Ellen van Dijk rode it into the rainbow jersey.
Now the new Speed Concept is available to anyone exclusively through Project One, where you can customize paint, fit and parts exactly to your liking. There has never been a bike quite like this.
Faster than ever
Trek Performance Research spent years mastering computational fluid dynamics using supercomputers to optimize the shape of the new Speed Concept. The result: 16 additional watts of power, saving six minutes over the length of an Ironman course. If you’re obsessed with pure speed, look no further.
Of course, “fast” is only one part of performance. Speed Concept’s secret weapon is its IsoSpeed pivot at the top of the seat tube, which creates a more comfortable ride without any sacrifice to weight or aerodynamics. Now you can focus more on your power, and worry less about wearing down with every bump in the road.
Unrivaled versatility and integration
Speed Concept’s wide fit window and simple adjustment system lets riders easily dial in their perfect fit. On the bike, riders can have everything they need within their grasp, thanks to the Speed Concept’s fully integrated storage and fueling systems.
- The between-the-arms bottle lets riders hydrate without leaving their aerobars, and can be refilled quickly through a silicone port.
- An integrated bento box within the top tube can hold enough nutrition for an entire race. Plus it’s dishwasher friendly!
- The on-frame downtube bottle carries 750 ml of liquid and matches Speed Concept’s airflow.
- A hidden storage compartment is perfect for carrying a flat kit, and saving your long training ride.
The final word
The new Speed Concept is the fastest bike we’ve ever ever tested — full stop. But the little details — from IsoSpeed, to thoughtful integration — make it truly special. It will help you ride faster and ride farther. More importantly, Speed Concept just might be the most fun you’ve ever had between a set of aerobars.
