Trek Domane+ SLR 9 eTap Review – $13k

The Trek Domane+ SLR 9 eTap is an ultra light weight 28.5lb electric road bike with endurance comfort geometry and iso speed vibration dampening seat post interface. The first ebike to feature Trek’s OCLV carbon fiber. Available in five colors and seven frame sizes. This particular build uses top of the line SRAM components with a 1×12 drivetrain, flared drop bar, and 40c wide gravel tires. Alternative builds offer narrower road tires and a 2×12 Shimano drivetrain. SRAM Red electronic shifting and 160mm hydraulic disc brakes. Hidden fender mounts add utility, integrated top top tube display panel works well and is easy to read, optional smartphone app provides motor tuning settings, optional range extending 160wh bottle shaped battery pack provides 40% more range and off-bike charging. Excellent control pad button placement on left and right hood. Includes 4 amp fast charger despite having a lower capacity 360wh battery. Main battery not removable for charging and storage. Seat post is a proprietary shape so upgrade options are limited.
