Trek Dual Sport is a Lightweight Gravel-Ready Hybrid

Jan 23, 2023

Trek overhaul the Dual Sport, adding a 27.5" wheelset with 2.0" tires and a rigid carbon fork to shave 1.9 kg for a more nimble ride feel

Read Review

From Trek

The new Dual Sport features an all-new frame that’s fresh from the ground up, opting for a look that’s sleek and modern, and new geometry that’s comfortable and confident on or off the road.

 Eliminating the suspension fork used on the previous generation, Trek employs a carbon fork that pairs with the new, lighter frame to drop the weight down a whopping 1.9 kg (on the Dual Sport 3 model). This light weight elevates manoeuvrability, so it’s easier than ever to handle on rough rail trails and dirt paths, while the carbon fork works to absorb chatter from the ride, reducing fatigue and elevating comfort.

 Allowing for customisation, new Dual Sport comes ready to equip with a wealth of mounting points for frame bags, racks, mudguards, panniers and more. Whether riders are looking to load up and pedal through their morning commute or pack on the gear to explore the road less travelled, the Dual Sport is ready for whatever the day holds.

 A new wheel size boosts comfort and nimble handling on the Dual Sport. Instead of the 700c x 40 mm seen on its previous generations, the Dual Sport will now come equipped with stiffer, more nimble 27.5˝ wheels that host lofty 2˝ tyres that soak up pot holes and rough roads while elevating confidence-inspiring traction.

 For a clean finish, Trek has simplified the Dual Sport’s cable management, opting to route cables through the head tube and frame to reduce maintenance while taking the bike's sleek looks to the next level.


What is the difference between the current frame compared to previous the previous version?

The Dual Sport 1/2/3 loses the suspension fork and opts for a rigid fork, it’s lighter weight, moves to 27.5 wheels from 700c, and adds mounts for a low-rider front rack and under top tube bag.

What is the maximum tyre size with and without mudguards?

The new Dual Sport will accommodate 27.5 x 2.2 with and without mudguards

What is the maximum chain ring size? Minimum?

For the 1X configuration, the maximum chain ring is 42T.  While there is no minimum recommendation, running too small of a front chain ring may cause interference with the chain stay.  Users should refer to drivetrain recommendations when altering the OE spec.
