To quote Trek: “Race Shop Limited is for the insiders. This is the real deal, the stuff you can't get everywhere or any time. It’s the rare and beautiful consequence of Trek product development collaborating with world-class athletes, and now it's available to you. Available in strictly limited quantities.
The RSL editions are the highest spec frames Trek offer - as issued to Trek-Segafredo team riders. They utilise Trek’s proprietary 700 Series OCLV carbon which they claim to be the lightest and the strongest in the cycling world.
We currently have both a Madone in 54cm and a Domane in 58 cm is Race Shop Limited spec. The Domane comes in what Trek calls Pro Endurance Geometry - longer than the standard Domane, with a lower bottom bracket and a lower head tube. This is the bike the Trek-Segafredo team races at the Paris-Roubaix and Tour of Flanders. With Iso-speed decouplers at both front and rear this is well equipped to take the sting out of rough, pot-holed, UK roads as well as continental pave.
The Madone also comes in a more aggressive H1 Geometry with a longer top tube and shorter head tube than the H2. Despite being built for out and out speed the Madone also has an IsoSpeed Decoupler on the seatpost to enhance comfort and let you focus on riding faster for longer.
