The Domane+ brings electric assistance to Trek's road bikes

The 2019 Domane+ is the electric version of Trek’s popular Domane, a bike highly regarded for its ability to smooth out rough roads. It’s designed for riders who appreciate the reliable comfort of the Domane’s endurance geometry and IsoSpeed decoupler but want the additional fun and function of an electric assist.

At just under a claimed 38 pounds, the Domane+ is lighter than more utilitarian e-bikes, like the Trek Super Commuter+, which can weigh upward of 50 pounds. That said, it’s heavier than some of the newest entries in the electric road category, like the Orbea Gain, which use a smaller motor and battery system but also don’t have as powerful an assist. The Domane+ offers 350 watts of power, while Orbea’s Gain, for example, tops out at around 250 watts. Domane+ is a drop-bar electric road bike that makes longer, faster road rides possible. A carbon frame with IsoSpeed and a stable endurance geometry, a powerful Bosch drive system for speeds of up to 28 mph and a sleek design with integrated lighting features make Domane+ the ideal ride for cyclists who want speed, all-road performance and endless style.

At that price point, I would rather get a motorbike...

"Hit distance milestones" - on a motorbike? Strava roadie purists worst nightmare.

Article should should have been titled 'The R110k help-my-trap'

I still think you'd need brass ones to tear up chappies faster than a world tour rider, noone able to hold your wheel, reach the top and take the obligatory selfie without feeling like a box.
