The Silque SSL is Trek’s women’s specific model. This isn’t a bike for the pure races, but it is perfect for females who do pretty much every other type of riding.
As with the Domane, the Silque boasts an IsoSpeed decoupler which is designed to double the bike’s vertical compliance and therefore make riding as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
The bike features an endurance fit for a more comfortable riding position.
Thinner tubing allows the bike a little more compliance while riding, again adding to the comfort.
The Ride Tuned seatmast (a feature of all Trek bikes, 5 series and above) does away with the traditional seatpost clamping forces, which frees Trek up to use less material, and in doing so creates a lighter frame.
Following through with this lightness of being is the 600 series OCLV (Optimum Compaction Low Void) carbon frame, which is synonymous with premium quality and consistent carbon outcomes.
