It's right for you if...
You're not racing the Tour de France, but you might be racing to the town line! Domane AL 3 is the right choice if you're pretty confident you're going to take to road cycling, and want a great first road bike or an upgrade that will be your companion for years to come.
The tech you get
The full Shimano Sora groupset has 18 speeds, with integrated brake/shift levers. It's a lighter parts group than Shimano's introductory groupset, and provides a wide range of gears that's great for climbing. Domane AL 3 has a lightweight Alpha Aluminum frame with a stable Endurance Geometry for a confident ride, a Domane carbon fork, mounts for fenders, and Tubeless Ready rims.
The final word
Lighter parts, with 18 speeds for easier riding on varying terrain, an advanced aluminum frame, and a comfort-first geometry designed to help you fall in love with road cycling. Like every Trek, Domane AL 3 is backed by our lifetime warranty.

100 Series Alpha Aluminum
Trek's high-performance aluminum, with manipulated tube shapes to balance strength and weight savings.
As befits the world’s most advanced endurance racing bikes, we’ve developed the world’s most stable racing geometry. Still racy, but with a slightly higher head tube for better stability and greater comfort through the entire ride.
Performance. Stability. Victory. Trek endurance geometry is a triple threat, maximizing control, handling, and responsiveness through perfectly tuned rider weight bias.
Additional Tire Clearance
Additional tire clearance allows Domane to go where no road bike has gone before. Race, ride, explore.
It's a one-two punch: generous ride-tuned sweep and shape increases compliance for a smoother ride, and unique dropout placement optimizes the wheelbase.
Fender mounts allow for full-coverage fenders so you can ride comfortably in less-than-ideal conditions.
Going for a long ride? Rack mounts make carrying accessories a breeze.

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.
