He's been riding the incredibly aero Trek Madone so far this season but as of this weekend, Degenkolb has been tackling the cobbled Classics on his new custom Trek Domane.
This version of the Domane is the H1, or to those who'd like to buy one from Trek, Trek Domane SLR Race Shop Limited. It uses Trek's highest grade carbon 700OCLV, which is the lightest and strongest carbon used by Trek, as well as a racier geometry to the lower models of the range.
It'll set you back £10,500 too!
The Trek Domane party piece has always been its IsoSpeed technology found in the head tube and seat tube. Although the steerer tube is isolated at the front the amount of movement is fixed, where as the rear IsoSpeed decoupler is adjustable, giving a range of 20 per cent of compliance.
It's said that the custom paint job is a nod towards John Degenkolb's passions for motor bikes, specifically that classic 'cafe racer' style and we have to say, we adore the new Trek Domane in the shiny silver and contrasting glittery red.
Degenkolb raced this bike to a respectful fifth place at Ghent-Wevelgem last weekend and hopes to continue his form heading into the Tour of Flanders this weekend and then the weekend after Paris-Roubaix.
John Degenkolb might need to leave his manners at home over the next few weekends if he wants to win Tour of Flanders or to relive his win of Paris-Roubaix from 2015. At the very least he'll look classy aboard his new custom Trek Domane.
