Alpha Aluminum Frame

The Alpha Aluminum Frame is a key component of the Trek line of bikes. As they are resistant to rust and may be used for riding in any conditions, they are durable fiber reinforced frames. It is easy to maintain and has thicker walls to ensure durability. Because of its inherent lightness, it is perfect for racing and hill climbing.

Shimano Hydraulic Disc Brakes

These hydraulic brakes are renowned for stopping quickly in any circumstance. with little or no hiccups Beginner riders, kids, and even experienced riders can use it. When it is applied, hydraulics cause an easy and quick transmission that grips the tyres.

DuoTrap S Compatible

Trek’s special frame-integrated wireless computer system, known as DuoTrap S, keeps track of your cycling statistics. In order to provide a sleek and aerodynamic finish, it can be placed precisely into the frame on the inside of the back wheel. Your cycling statistics are tracked by the DuoTrap S gadget (separately offered), which wirelessly transmits the data to a cycling computer or smartphone that supports Bluetooth or ANT+.

Suspension Seatpost

Verve 2 Disc does get a nice touch with seat post suspension despite not having any suspension on the front or back wheels. Any unexpected bumps that sneak up on you will be absorbed by the alloy adjustable seat post’s little additional spring, which provides up to 27.2mm of travel.

Bontrager Wheels

The Verve 2’s wheels are Bontrager Connections, and its tyres are size 700x45c Bontrager H5 wire-bead. Your safety and visibility are guaranteed even in low light thanks to the thick-treaded, reflective, and puncture-protected tyres, which are durable and resilient in all weather situations.
