Yes, the Madone has proven to be one of the fastest aero superbikes on the planet, but what really sets Madone apart is how it combines advanced aerodynamics, ultra-lightweight, and superior ride quality into the best race bike available today. It is the Ultimate Race Bike.
Part of the magic of Madone is the overall balanced 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. Madone delivers on the promise of the Ultimate Race Bike with full aero speed that can take on cobbles, climbs and descents. Nothing rides like Madone.
NEW Adjustable Top Tube IsoSpeed
IsoSpeed smooths out the road for a sublime ride, diminishing fatiguing impacts and allowing the rider to remain fresher, longer.
The all-new Top Tube IsoSpeed on Madone SLR is adjustable to customize compliance to rider preference and terrain. In the most compliant setting, the new Madone SLR is up to 17% more compliant than the previous generation Madone.
To keep all that compliance under control, Top Tube IsoSpeed is damped to rebound in a smooth and controlled motion, providing the rider more stability on rough roads. Rebound is reduced by 13% on the New Madone.
Another benefit of this new technology is the ability to closely match the vertical compliance values across all frame sizes. No matter what size bike you ride, you will benefit fully from the IsoSpeed compliance.
Trek went to great lengths to ensure that the Madone SLR frame could aid in reducing or maintaining weight from the current Madone. Numerous finite element models were analyzed to fine tune various areas of the frame and shave as much weight as possible, all while balancing aerodynamic requirements.
The story of the new Madone SLR begins and ends with our proprietary 700 Series OCLV Carbon, which is manipulated into the perfect KVF aero shapes to cheat the wind. Our patented OCLV Carbon process starts with the best material available. Madone SLR wouldn’t be possible without the advanced properties of 700 Series OCLV Carbon.
Nothing to see here. Every element of Madone serves the goal of unprecedented integration to enhance performance, making Madone one of the fastest, most advanced race bikes on the road. The new Madone SLR features invisible cable routing, front end aero profile, aero cockpit, integrated brakes, hidden seat mast, Control Center, aero 3S chainkeeper, optimal aero water bottle placement, integrated mount for the Bontrager Flare RT tail light, Blender mount accessory integration, and Duotrap S ANT+ and Bluetooth® compatibility.
Rim and Disc Brake Options
You choose: Madone SLR is available in both rim and disc brake models. Both brake technologies are fully integrated into the frame’s overall design. While the rim brake model is lighter, the disc brake model provides undeniable stopping power without any penalty to the aerodynamic profile, so you get powerful braking without any aerodynamic sacrifice.
Optimal Fit and Geometry
Madone SLR’s all-new H1.5 geometry, developed with the Trek-Segafredo and Trek-Drops pro cycling teams, puts the rider in the optimal aero race position. It is the sweet spot that covers all the needs for what our racers need.
Madone SL features proven H2 geometry.
New Two-Piece Aero Bar Stem
Madone SLR also provides riders more stem options, 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.
Madone SLR comes in women’s specific models that feature the same best in class frame platform as the mainline models. Women specific touchpoints like saddle, handlebar width and stem length that are spec’d to fit most women better from the start.
