The Domane is Trek's comfort bike and uses the proprietary IsoSpeed decoupler; essentially a pivot between the seattube and toptube which allows the two to flex independently. The Domane was developed in conjunction with Fabian Cancellara for the cobbled Classics, and is well suited to the demands of regular riders seeking a combination of comfort and performance.
While 4, 5, and 6-Series Domanes are based around a carbon fibre frame, 2-Series machines use an aluminum frame. The seattube on the first run of 2-Series frames was formed by welding two tubes together to ensure the correct balance of strength and compliance but Trek have managed to overcome this by using double-tubing, thereby forgoing the weld and significantly improving the aesthetics of the frame.

Speaking of which, while there are color updates across the Trek range, the Domane 2.1 and 2.3 have undergone a significant makeover, with subtle color-matched components across the bike.
