Features

Aluminum Gold frame

This hybrid bike comes with a frame made from portable Alpha Gold aluminum; this facilitates steady, high-performance bike cycling. This feature contributes to the reason why this bike is suited for both on-road and off-road cycling. The 21-speed levels Shimano Altus shift gear and the Bontrager branded tires make pedaling on the flat as well as off-trail grounds easy. Incorporated into the frame are rack and fender mounts, and ergonomic handlebar for efficient handling.

Suspension fork

Bike riders can enjoy a long ride without the early onset of upper muscles stress courtesy of the well-designed fork. The SR NEX suspension fork absorbs all the shocks from bumps encountered. It does this by making the front wheel glide over bumps while the ergonomic handlebar ensures the rider is well balanced and in control. The suspension fork allows the adjusting of loads before riding.

DuoTrap S support

The Trek Dual Sport 1 is a great bike for actualizing your body fitness. This hybrid bike is compatible with DuoTrap S. This feature is integrated into the body frame through the Bluetooth connectivity and ANT+ sensor. With this feature, a rider is able to see detailed information on progression in attaining set fitness goals.
