The draw: Rocket on a budget

With a well-proven pedigree of success, Trek’s Speed Concept line has long been a popular choice for pros and age groupers. The 7.5 gets its performance from the Kammtail shaped tubes, sleek front end and integrated brakes. One of the first bikes to consider storage needs of triathletes, a rear storage box and bolt bosses on the top tube allow for plenty of storage. SRAM Force components do the shifting, and Trek’s in-house brand Bontrager provides the rest of the components. The tubeless-compatible Bontrager RACE wheels are great for training in comfort. For the tri bike buyer on a budget, this household name provides a great ride.
