Domane SL 6 Disc

A well-built carbon frame dramatically reduces weight compared to metallic materials, while maintaining the strength and stiffness that high performance bicycles and their riders demand. This is where Trek’s pioneered and patented OCLV Carbon—an acronym for Optimum Compaction Low Void—process comes in. OCLV Carbon frames begin with the best materials available. Utilising defence-grade carbon restricted from exportation outside the United States, Trek has spent countless development hours perfecting the construction of a variety of weights and types of carbon (cloth, unidirectional, etc.). The OCLV process is best explained when broken down into two parts:

Optimum Compaction: Carbon is layered into a series of plies compacted to the ideal fibre-resin ratio. The process starts with cutting carbon fibre from large sheets to a specific shape which is then placed into a mould. A combination of heat and pressure then compresses the sheets of carbon into a carbon lug. This combination of heat and pressure is OCLV’s most essential and closely guarded equation.

Low Void: Voids are the spaces that exist between the layers of carbon fibre that comprise a component or frame. Minimising these voids is the primary goal of quality carbon engineering, as more voids translates to reduced strength and durability of the composite material. OCLV Carbon exceeds aerospace standards regarding the number of voids in its material.

The IsoSpeed development project began when we challenged ourselves to build a faster race bike for our professional racing teams competing on the notoriously rough courses of cycling’s incredibly difficult one-day spring Classics, such as Strade Bianche, Ronde van Vlaanderen and Paris-Roubaix. Each of these races—all of which are among the world’s most renowned—heavily feature gravel, dirt or cobblestone roads. Since the 2012 introduction of Domane, our first IsoSpeed-equipped road bike, each of these races has been won on a bike with IsoSpeed.
