I know what it is and no one is even close to guessing what it is.
But if it's no new fancy frame material as graphene or nano carbon or honey comp, I hope it's not electric. :evil:

Who says it has to be an improvement to their bikes?

Triple IsoSpeed. The new Domane will have elastomers at the headtube, seattube and bottom bracket for out of the saddle comfort :P

A subscription program for bikes, where you get a new one every two years, and Trek recycles your “old” one to deserving or less prosperous folks as/where needed. Hmmm, I started that sentence as a joke but by the time I finished it sounded like an ok idea. Lol
Colnago C64 - The Naked Build; Colnago C60 - PR99; Trek Koppenberg - Where Emonda and Domane Meet;
Unlinked Builds (searchable): Colnago C59 - 5 Years Later; Trek Emonda SL Campagnolo SR; Special Colnago EPQ

How many Freds would go for that? Sliding scale of service. For $1k/year, you get a 500-series carbon frame. For $2k/year, you get a 600-series carbon frame. $3k/year, you get a 700-series frame. Maintenance included (except tubes/tires). That would be a money-maker. It would keep the factories humming along.

Emonda SLR - https://bit.ly/2UK5FP8
Crockett - https://bit.ly/2Xem4sk

Madone 5, Cobia. I own a lot of Treks.

Of course it's a new wonder material.
One so good it's as stiff as a track bike..
As compliant as a wc dh rig.. So good in fact isospeed is gone.
Generates electricity as the frame flexs powering all your devices via qi2(aka wireless), usb adaptor not included. Power is directed to your muscles as well for eletrostimulation therapy as you ride. Now that's active recovery.
Added bonus: makes you better in bed. From 2 pump chumps to 4 pump champs!

Word from here is that it is some plant based fiber that is a cheaper and green alternative to carbon.
Could be true, Graphene isn't green. :mrgreen: Bottom left looks like Kryptonite though.

Some materials could be produced in black or green.

hint . think about a tech used in bicycling industry that has been stagnant for the last 30 years. recent events can make this new tech very relevant. yeah i know what it is but their is a embargo until next week

Pretty sure everybody is going to be greatly disappointed, as I now know what it is as well. Pretty disappointed that is unless you are a fan (not likely) of Bontrager kit.

Just gave a huge hint btw.....

helmets... there is similar tech on football helmets already so I guess it makes sense.
