Details

Put Trek's Silque through its paces and you'll revel at its unmatched ride quality, comfort, and quickness. Graced with Trek technology like the race-winning IsoSpeed, women's ride-tuned geometry, internal cable routing, and their super-light and efficient OCLV carbon tubing, the Silque is a true game-changer. It masters long, epic rides with ease while also delivering unrivaled speed and comfort over the roughest roads that dare to challenge you. The Silque rolls on quality Bontrager components including tubeless-ready wheels, bar and stem, and a supportive women's specific seat. Plus, you get a silky-shifting Shimano Tiagra drivetrain with wide-range cranks for easier climbing while powerful brakes deliver total control on the descents. Uncompromisingly fast, confidently stable, sublimely comfortable, the Silque has it all!

Silque IsoSpeed Decoupler Silque 3S chain-keeper
The IsoSpeed Decoupler allows the seat tube to rotate independently from the top-tube-to-seatstay junction, increasing vertical compliance without compromising pedaling efficiency. It's already been proven with wins in races over the toughest cobbles in Europe.  The 3S chain-keeper is integrated directly into the frame. It's an elegant solution that prevents the chain coming off on rough roads and under hard shifts. It lets you make any shift you want at any time without worrying.
Silque internal cable routing Silque E2 front end
The Silque's internal cable routing offers precision shifting and positive braking in all conditions. It's also aerodynamic, compatibile with modern drivetrains, and it protects the cables to reduce wear and tear and maintenance. The E2 head tube tapers from 1 1/2 to 1-1/8 inch and is wider side to side than front to back. This minimizes weight, maximizes power transfer and improves cornering. The result is a more powerful and confident ride.

Trek's BB90
Trek's Silque features a unique bottom bracket that's 90mm wide (traditional ones are 68mm wide). This wide bottom bracket lets Trek build the frame with larger tubes for increased power transfer. Plus, the BB90 is machined so that the bearings can be placed directly into the frame—saving weight due to fewer parts, ensuring additional pedaling efficiency, and simplifying maintenance and repair.

Tapered head tube and fork.For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, tapered head tubes (see image, on left) and forks pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2 inch, see image, on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8 inch). This combination sheds weight compared to straight 1 1/2-inch systems, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to straight 1 1/8-inch systems. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.

    Comments:

    I am extremely happy with my Trek Silque. I was amazed at how lightweight and fast it is compared to my prior road bike (Giant). During the "test drive" I couldn't stop smiling! I purchased the bike for riding paved trails with varying levels of hills and was very happy in how the Silque made climbing the bigger hills a lot easier and shifting is so smooth. I've purchased an indoor trainer so I can continue riding during Iowa winters and the Silque was very easy to set up on the trainer. The only "con" is the seat as it is very hard even with padded shorts.

    I am new to road biking, and although I didn't want to spend quite this much, I wanted a good-to-GREAT product. I love it! It is as smooth a ride as you'll find in a moderately priced bike. Shifts nicely and handles well. I didn't like the seat (crotch fire starter!) and replaced it. This is a WONDERFUL bike, and I've been so happy with my choice.
