- Ultimate Race Bike- Yes,The Madone has proven to be one of the fastest aero superbikes on the planet. But what really sets the Madone apart is how it combines advanced aerodynamics, ultra-lightweight and superior ride quality into the best race bike available today. Part of the magic of the Madone is the overall balanced and amazing ride feel that you experience as you are pushing the bike to your fastest personal records. Most aero bikes feel harsh and overly stiff, sacrificing ride quality for aerodynamic profile. The Madone delivers on the promise of the ultimate race bike with full aero speed that can take on cobbles, climbs and descents.
- Adjustable Top Tube IsoSpeed
The benefit of IsoSpeed is that it not only smooths out the road for a sublime ride, it diminishes the fatiguing impacts of the road, allowing the rider to remain fresher longer. Adjustable IsoSpeed was first released on the seat tube of Trek’s Domane line, a feature that has been met with wide praise since its release. Top tube IsoSpeed on the Madone SLR is adjustable to customize the compliance to rider preference and terrain.
Top Tube IsoSpeed is damped to rebound in a smooth and controlled motion providing the rider more stability. Rebound is reduced by 13% on the New Madone SLR over the current Madone. Another benefit of this new technology is the ability to closely match vertical compliance values across all frame sizes since the top tube seat mast is of similar length. No matter what size bike you ride, you will benefit fully from IsoSpeed compliance.
- Unprecedented integration
Every element of Madone serves the ultimate goal of unprecedented integration to enhance performance, making Madone the fastest, most advanced option on the road.
- Rim and disc brake options
Madone SLR comes with both disc and direct rim brake options. Both brake technologies are fully integrated into the frame’s overall design. The rim brake version is lighter with the brakes moulded into the frame’s design and hidden from the wind. The disc brake version provides undeniable stopping power without any penalty to the bike’s aerodynamic profile—powerful braking without any sacrifice.
- New Two-Piece Aero Bar Stem
Madone SLR provides riders more stem options and additional bar sizes and +/- 5 degrees of bar rotation. With this new fit update, Trek offers one of the broadest spectrums of possible race fits for men and women with an integrated aero cockpit.
- Optimal Fit and Geometry
Developed in partnership with the Trek-Segafredo and Trek-Drops professional cycling teams, Madone SLR features a new H1.5 geometry that puts the rider in the optimal aero race position. H1.5 hits the sweet spot for a wide range of racers as it balances a traditional aggressive race geometry with a position that more athletes can hold longer with more comfort. Madone SL feature proven H2 Geometry.
- Men’s and Women’s Models
Madone SLR comes in both men’s and women’s specific models. Both feature the same best in class frame platform. Women specific touch-points like saddle, handlebar width and stem length that are spec’d to fit most women better from the start.
