As an evolution of the highly regarded Crockett cyclocross bike, the Trek Boone dials the performance up several notches thanks to a full carbon fibre frameset and Trek’s patented IsoSpeed technology. With a lower overall weight and incredible power transfer, the Boone is ready to tackle everything from local club racing through to a World Cup round. In the realms of cyclocross racing, weight is hugely important. If you’re going to be shouldering your bike multiple times each lap and regularly accelerating out of tight corners, you’ll appreciate what a lighter bike means for a podium position. Fatigue is another important factor to weigh in. And that’s the case whether you’re on the racetrack, or taking the Boone on long gravel rides and singletrack adventures. Of course the carbon frame helps to smooth out smaller vibrations from the trail, but it’s the IsoSpeedseatmast that really does the work here. Isolating the saddle from the rest of the frame, the IsoSpeed pivot allows the seat tube and the saddle to flex vertically for a huge increase in compliance. Combined with the curvy IsoSpeed fork, the Boone offers comfort and performance in a single package.
As Trek’s flagship cyclocross race bike, the Boone comes equipped with all the mod-cons. Firstly, there’s a high-tech OCLV 600 carbon frameset that helps to bring the weight down. The frame uses the huge BB90 bottom bracket junction for solid power transfer, while a tapered E2 head tube and refined geometry offer crisp handling response. The Boone’s top tube is profiled for comfortable shouldering, while sealed internal cable routing helps to shield all the necessary guts of the bike from mud and rain.
You can get the Boone in disc-specific options, which feature a thru-axle fork and hydraulic disc brakes.
