Trek Domane SLR 2023 Road test review Build quality

The quality level is very high, one of the best road bikes on the market.

All well made and cared for, even if the bike is very expensive, so the value for money is sufficient but nothing more.

Impossible, at these prices, not to expect the top.

However, it is worth noting the wide availability of sizes, choice of colors and assemblies.

Excellent warranty and assistance.

It is not a cheap bicycle, but it is worth what it costs, no one gives anything away ...

 

  

 

Trek Domane SLR 2023 Road Test Review Frame

The chassis is very well made, but we would have expected an even bigger upgrade.

Very reliable and long-lasting, it is also offered with a wide availability of sizes.

Equally excellent is the possibility to customize the colors and the basic color range.

Nice frame, expensive, but well made, if not a bargain in absolute terms.

The cost of the frame kit alone is very high, almost exaggerated, ultimately it is always a commercial product made in large series.

 

 

 

Trek Domane SLR 2023 Road Test Assemblies Review

The Domane frame is available in different types of carbon, SLR and SL, as well as in various assemblies, so in addition to the top range version you can also favorably choose the less expensive versions.

In reality, the prices are always very high, even if the build quality is always valid.

Ultimately, for those who have chosen to buy this model there is certainly no lack of alternatives between the various assemblies proposed, but the price is always high, there is no real entry level alternative with a cost accessible to all.

 

  

 

Trek Domane SLR 2023 Road test Comfort review

The Trek Domane has always been one of the most comfortable bikes on the market and it remains so, even if we would have expected a decisive upgrade that hasn't happened.

It is a lighter frame, with more performance, but not more comfortable.

The ride comfort is still very high and at the top of the category.

But if you already have a Domane and want to buy the 2023 model for greater ride comfort, you are only spending money unnecessarily.

 

 

Trek Domane SLR 2023 Road Test Review Guide

The Trek Domane SLR has always been an easy and safe road bike to ride, so too is the 2023 version.

Precise and stable at high speeds, it can be driven with one hand even on the most demanding descents.

Not very manageable, on the other hand, it is very stable and safe on bumpy roads.

Not very sensitive to cross wind, it takes very little effort in driving and allows you to concentrate only on pedaling, or to admire the landscape.

Excellent braking.

An excellent frame, very safe, perfect for driving on roads open to traffic and for the amateur who does not want difficult or unsafe bikes to ride.

 

  

 

Trek Domane SLR 2023 Road test review Performance

We would have expected a greater reduction in weight, the bike, even in its top-of-the-range assembly, does not drop below 7kg, but it is undeniable that it goes better (not so much though) than the previous version.

Stiffer and more responsive frame, greater response to the thrust on the pedals, these are the improvements, which translate into better and competitive climbing behavior.

Greater performance on the plains and hills.

The best, however, it manages to give in the stretches of damaged asphalt, where stability and ride comfort allow you to concentrate only on pedaling.

Also noteworthy is the excellent traction of the rear wheel, which hardly loses contact with the ground.

On routes with damaged asphalt the performance is superior to lighter competitors and faster on paper.

Downhill performance is also excellent, where stability, safety and excellent braking are well exploited.

Years later it still remains one of the best endurance bikes ever and one of the best racing bikes.

In certain situations the performance is at the absolute top, a competitive racing bike in races with bad roads, but it is still one of the best racing bikes on the market, less fast than others, much more comfortable.

 


 

Trek Domane SLR 2023 Road test review Pros and cons

The Trek Domane SLR continues to be a benchmark for endurance bikes.

The 2023 version has evolved and been improved especially in general performance.

The ride comfort remained at a high level, but is essentially unchanged.

The general quality is excellent.

Performance remains at the absolute top among endurance bikes.

It is not a cheap bicycle.

The high price is its real flaw.
