Domane AL 2 is the perfect gateway to comfortable road biking. It's stable, light, easy to accessorise and fun to ride – all of which makes it the ideal choice for anyone looking for a great first experience with a real road bike.
It's right for you if...
You're a value-minded rider testing the waters of road cycling and want a drop-bar bike that's an upgrade in feel, speed and efficiency over a flat-bar hybrid or mountain bike. Domane AL 2 is a great choice if you're new to the road and want a quality road bike that you won't immediately outgrow.
The tech you get
Lightweight aluminium frame with mounts for mudguards and a carbon fork – features that are not typically available on road bikes at this price point. The Shimano drivetrain has 16 speeds, with shifters that are integrated into the brake levers so your hands never have to leave the bars. The wide range of gears makes it easier to ride terrain that varies in elevation. Plus, sturdy Bontrager wheels, puncture-resistant tyres and rim brakes.
The final word
Domane AL 2 is an ideal, comfort-first introduction to road riding. It's made for a great fit that's fast but not as aggressive as what you might see in the Tour de France. Plus, it's backed by our lifetime warranty.
