With his move to Trek, Nys also adopts some components from Trek’s Bontrager line, including swapping his PRO aluminum handlebar for Bontrager carbon handlebar in the form of the RXL (Race Lite Blade), and swapping his Shimano C35 tubulars for Bontrager’s 1150g Aeolus 3 D3 carbon tubular wheels (custom prototypes for disc brakes).
Consumers will be able to purchase the Boone as well, but with a different spec. The production versions of the Trek Boone will come in five complete bike models, with both cantilever and disc brake options, starting with the $2899.99 Boone 5 and the $3049 Boone 5 Disc. There’s also the canti-only $3359.99 Boone 7, and the high-end models are the $4199.99 Boone 9 and $6299.99 Boone 9 Disc models.
Separate disc and canti framesets are also available for $2299.99. All these new carbon cyclocross options will likely mean that the company’s higher BB, longer chainstay carbon Cronus CX model from the company’s Gary Fisher days will be discontinued.
Stay tuned as we bring you more details on this unique ride, and climb aboard one ourselves for a future test.
