Trek Bicycle has launched the
latest generation of its ground-breaking aerodynamic race bike, Madone.
Renowned for its ability to balance aerodynamics with ride quality, the new
Madone has been updated with key technologies that enhance the bike’s core
benefits for riders.
Currently being raced by the
both the Trek-Segafredo and Trek-Drops professional cycling teams, the new
Madone is available for purchase now exclusively at Trek retailers worldwide. The
new Madone SLR range retails in USA between USD 6,000 – USD 12,000 (Rs 4.19
lakh to Rs 8.38 lakh) and is available to Indian consumers via the “performance
product” programme at all its authorised retail partners in India.
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 customise 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.
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.
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.
Madone SLR comes in both men’s
and women’s specific models. Both feature the same best in class frame
platform. Women specific touchpoints like saddle, handlebar width and stem
length that are spec’d to fit most women better from the start.
