FEATURE BIKE FRIDAY - MADONE SLR



The Madone SLR  is more than just a road bike, it’s the ultimate superbike. It’s fast, light, smooth and designed to give you every advantage in speed and handling.

Madone SLR

Of the world’s most sophisticated road bikes, only Madone delivers the triple threat of advanced aerodynamics, superior ride quality, and unprecedented integration. Thanks to 800 Series OCLV Carbon, the Madone SLR is the lightest and fastest Madone Trek have ever developed!

The Madone truly is a pedigree race bike as proven In 2019, when Trek-Segafredo’s Mads Pedersen took the win at the UCI Road World Championships on the ultimate race bike.

800 Series OCLV Carbon is 30% stronger than the previous OCLV Carbon laminates, yet just as stiff, allowing Trek to use less material in high-stress areas and create a lighter overall ride.

In both real-world conditions and in the wind tunnel, Madone’s exclusive Kammtail Virtual Foil tube shape ranks among the world’s most aerodynamic ever. This means when you are riding the Madone you know the only thing holding you back is you!The fully integrated Madone IsoSpeed decoupler soaks up fatiguing bumps in the road so you can stay stronger for longer. So whether it’s the smoothest roads in Majorca or the Cobbles of Flanders the Madone can roll with the punches.

Every element of Madone is designed to make it the fastest, most advanced bike on the road. It has invisible cable routing, an aero cockpit, a hidden seat mast, integrated brakes, and a whole load of style!

But what if SLR is a little out of your price range? Trek have got you covered with Madone SL. Madone SL has the same aero tube shapes, ride quality and top-to-bottom integration as Madone SLR. And just like Madone SLR, Madone SL is the ultimate racing bike. It’s just made with 500 Series OCLV Carbon, which isn’t quite as light as the 800 Series OCLV Carbon, but still punches above its price bracket. When you opt for SL, you get a few extra grams in the frame – but you get a few extra grams in your wallet, too!
