Description

With geometry designed by Katie Compton paired with Trek’s innovative IsoSpeed technology, the Boone 5 Disc is a pure cyclocross thoroughbred. OCLV carbon creates a stiff, light platform so you can nab the hole shot, effortlessly shoulder the frame on run-ups, and instantly accelerate for the sprint to the line. The Boone’s IsoSpeed decoupler takes the edge off rough terrain, while ensuring phenomenal power transfer. The E2 carbon fork tracks beautifully for off-camber confidence and Bontrager Race wheels are strong and fast. Shimano’s workhorse 105 drivetrain and an FSA crank give you smooth, reliable shifting for seasons to come. Avid disc brakes provide exceptional modulation, a carbon seatmast cap shaves weight, and a bevy of Bontrager components give you peace of mind when you’re rubbing elbows with the front of the pack.

Features & Info

Geometry chart

E2 Head Tube

Trek's E2 head tube is 1 1/2 inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8 inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems and not adding much weight.

IsoSpeed Fork



Trek's IsoSpeed fork is ingeniously engineered with reversed dropouts, increased fork rake (offset) and a constant, gentle curve beginning at the crown and sweeping all the way to the axle. These brilliant innovations allow the fork to absorb shocks rather than transmitting them to the rider for optimum comfort and energy savings, and they also increase the fork's lateral stiffness for more control.

90mm-wide Bottom Bracket


Trek's BB90.
Trek's Boone features a 90mm-wide bottom bracket. This extra width allows Trek to build frames with larger-diameter tubes for improved power transfer. The BB90 bearings are placed directly into the frame to save weight. The combined weight-savings and improved power transfer ensure additional pedaling efficiency and simplify maintenance.

Love riding this bike. Everything is super smooth. Shifts smoothly, rolls smoothly. I ride roughly 14 miles a day. On weekends I go on longer rides.

Bought my Boone last year and love it. Super fast, comfortable (that pivot point actually works really well), and the fit felt great. Definitely the lightest cross bike bike I've owned. The saddle was the only let down, I had to swap that out for a Fizik after the first ride. My LBS was super helpful though.
