Road bike efficiency and bicycle suspension, reconciled

Typically, road bike efficiency and bicycle suspension don't go hand in hand. But in 2012 when Trek introduced the Domane, it could be argued that it represented a revolution in road bike design.

Rather than incorporating "suspension" in a traditional sense, the Domane saw the launch of Trek's IsoSpeed Decoupler which allowed certain parts of the frame to flex while others remained stiff. Shortly after, Cancellara put his stamp of approval on the concept by racing it to victory in both Flanders and Roubaix.
