The 2023 Trek Domane SL 7 Gen 4 Road Bike in Gravel is a light and capable endurance road bike that's ready to take on long miles and rough roads. It comes with an electronic Ultegra Di2 drivetrain for lightning-fast precision shifting in any conditions. With tyre clearance up to 38c you can take on almost any road, from tarmac to light gravel.
The Domane SL is built around a lightweight 500-series OCLV Carbon frame which includes an updated version of the rear IsoSpeed tech. The IsoSpeed decoupler allows a small amount of controlled movement at the back of the bike to smooth out bumps in the road and reduce fatigue. The latest Gen 4 bike comes with a new frame which, along with the new IsoSpeed saves about 300g in weight compared to the Gen 3 model. The new frame is also more aerodynamic so you can go faster for the same effort.
The Domane SL 7 comes with an all-new wireless 2x12 Shimano Ultegra Di2 electronic drivetrain for unrivalled shifting speed and precision. Plus, Aeolus Pro 3V carbon wheels, an integrated carbon cockpit and internal storage and cable routing that add to the bike's capability and sleek look. An added top tube mounts let you secure bags for longer rides without bulky straps and bungees.
This bike is perfect for
Road riders who want a light, fast and aero race bike that can be comfortably ridden all day and which can stand up to use on rough roads and light gravel tracks.
Guide To Road Bike Gears
If you are buying a road bike one of the big differences between models will be which gears they use. Most manufacturers will make the same bike, using the same frame but putting different gears and wheels on it. So for instance you can buy a Trek Domane AL 2 Disc with Shimano Claris gearing for £975 or get the Trek Domane AL 4 Disc with Tiagra gearing for £1625. They are fundamentally the same bike. One comes with the Shimano Tiagra gears and the other comes with Shimano Claris gears.
In most cases, the bottom of the range gears and top of the range gears will basically work in the same way. The big differences are in the quality of material used and the weight. Top of the range gears will be lighter and smoother to use.
One thing to watch out for when comparing bikes is whether the full groupset is being used. If you are buying a bike that has Shimano 105 gears on it. Shimano makes 105 brakes, gear levers, front and rear derailleurs, cranks, chainrings and bottom brackets. So basically all of the running gear on the bike. Some bike manufacturers will fit the full groupset, others will fit Shimano 105 front and rear derailleurs but use their own brakes and cranks to save a few pounds. So if you are comparing bikes be sure to check how much of the groupset the bike actually uses.
Nothing beats the feeling of effortless speed you get on a road bike. There are lots of reasons to ride a road bike, from the simple joy of it, to racing, long distance challenges, or café rides with friends. Whatever you want to do there will be road bike out there for you.
Nearly all manufacturers have stopped making dedicated men’s and women’s bikes. They are now all unisex. What you will see is that on smaller bikes, brands will often fit a wider saddle (generally more female friendly). On larger bikes they will often fit a narrower one (generally more male friendly).
It is getting increasingly hard to buy new bikes with rim brakes as the industry has almost exclusively switched to discs. The reasons for this are pretty simple. Disc brakes are much, much, more powerful than old rim brake systems so you can stop a lot more easily and safely. Disc brakes also allow much bigger tyres to be fitted which is more comfortable. Older disc brake systems did often suffer from rubbing and squeaking. While this hasn’t been completely fixed yet it is much less common on modern bikes with hydraulic brakes. Mechanical disc brakes can still take a bit of fettling to get them right so go for hydraulic if you can.

Trek made their first bikes in 1976 in a barn in Wisconsin. Now they’re one of the biggest bike brands in the world. Trek bikes cover everything from professional-level road and mountain bike race bikes to commuters, hybrids and kids bikes.
