It's right for you if...
You have big dreams for the likes of Dirty Kanza, Land Run 100, and Trans Iowa, and know you'll need the most dialed gravel bike for these epic adventures. You also love the idea of one bike with such incredible versatility that it excels at gravel racing, adventure road riding, bikepacking, and whatever kind of ride you feel like tackling next.
The tech you get
A 500 Series OCLV Carbon frame with Rear IsoSpeed, a full Shimano Ultegra drivetrain, powerful flat-mount hydraulic disc brakes, Bontrager Paradigm Comp Disc wheels with 12mm thru axles, and wide 700x40 Bontrager GR1 Team Issue Tubeless Ready gravel tires that provide extra traction and stability. Plus, Control Freak internal cable routing and a carbon seatmast cap.
The final word
Trek's best carbon gravel bike for the longest days, roughest roads, and biggest adventures. It's light, fast, comfortable, and spec'd with parts that stand up to the most rugged terrain, like the upgraded Bontrager Paradigm wheelset and a full Shimano Ultegra drivetrain.

- The IsoSpeed decoupler cuts down on fatiguing bumps in gravel so you can wander more, reach new places, and stay stronger longer
- This bike is exceedingly versatile and suited to a wide variety of ride styles, including gravel rides, bikepacking, and daily commutes

- The Stranglehold Dropout makes it easy to fine-tune your geometry or run singlespeed
You might also like
Flat Mount disc brakes
All-new Flat Mount disc brakes are more elegant, lighter, smaller, and cleaner than traditional disc brakes, providing superior performance and stopping power under harsh conditions.
A 12mm front thru axle makes steering more precise for more control, and the quick-release feature makes wheel removal easy.
Sometimes you need a little extra protection, so we developed our light, tough external Carbon Armor polymer shield. It provides reassurance when you know your down tube is bound to take some abuse.
Ride Tuned seatmast
Our no-cut Ride Tuned seatmast is designed for the rigors of pro racing. It's the lightest, most comfortable solution for day-in, day-out performance and comfort, however rough the roads or hard the riding.
Tubeless Ready rims
Bontrager TLR (Tubeless Ready) Road is the first fully integrated tubeless system for road wheels. When you go tubeless with TLR, you can run lower tire pressure for increased traction and comfort without the threat of pinch flats.

Sizing & fit
The charts below show our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8˝, for example, will fit on the same size bike. The best way to find your perfect fit is to consult the experts at your local Trek retailer.
