Trek has two types of series: with letters to identify types of roads on the road (SLR, SL, etc) and numbers (from 5 to 9) to identify mountain boxes and road assemblies levels. SLR: Identify the high range of Trek road, manufactured with the lighter Trek carbon possible for the model in question, whether the Madone Aero (800 series), the Ejanda Escalator (800 Series) or the Great Domane Fund (700 series). · SL: They are high performance paintings for road cycling, OCLV carbon, but somewhat heavier, which has an impact on the final price of the bicycle, which will be something cheaper than the SLR. · ALR and AL: Both series identify the two types of trek aluminum frames, the Alpha Platinum. The ALR uses the 300 series aluminum, with a special hydroformed and practically invisible welds that save weight. Meanwhile, Al is the 100 series, something heavier and with somewhat less camouflaged welds, present mainly in the mid -range. · Series from 4 to 9: The numbers that accompany Trek models identify the level of road assemblies and frames in Mountain Bike. On 9 (with their respective subsequent 9.9, 9.8, 9.7 or 9.6) encompasses the models with high -end road assembly, and carbon boxes and high and half -end mounting assemblies for mountain bicycles. The 8 welcomes the models with aluminum frame and mid -range assembly, the 7 of aluminum and components of good quality/price ratio. The lower numbers 4.5 and 6 identify the assemblies and frames of input ranges, both to road cycling and the MTB.
