TREK MADONE AERO ROAD BIKE
The Trek Madone is an aero road bike with a lightweight carbon fibre frame, aerodynamic design and is built to be the ultimate speed machine. The Madone is one of my all-time favourite race bikes. We love them at The Bicycle Chain and have sold them since the first version was released in 2003.
Several generations in the making, the Madone is Trek’s aero focused, drag defying race bike. It feels unfair though to simply label it an aero bike.
There’s no doubt you can feel the advantages of its aerodynamic design as it cuts through the air with relative ease and whilst this is absolutely the bike you would choose if speed is your top priority, the Madone is also outstandingly light and forgiving for an aero bike. The holy grail of bike design.
Oh, did I mention it’s so stunning you could hang it on the wall!
So, if you’re a speed demon at heart, head down, bum up, get everywhere as fast as humanly possible, the Madone is right for you.
The Madone Gen 7 is available in carbon fibre frame options only and comes in two frame versions the SL and the lighter weight SLR.
TREK MADONE SLR ROAD BIKE
The Trek Madone SLR models have the highest specification carbon, Trek’s patented OCLV 800 series. Recorded as 30% stronger than the superseded 700 series, it allows Trek to use less in certain areas, reducing weight whilst maintaining stiffness and reliability. All SLR models also come with the beautiful fully integrated one-piece carbon handlebar and stem, for the ultimate clean aerodynamic finish. SLR is the very best Trek has to offer, the pinnacle.
Three different specifications of SLR are available, SLR6, SLR 7 and SLR 9. The higher the model number the higher the specification, all models are fitted with electronic groupsets, they range from entry level Shimano 105 groupsets to Shimano Dura-ace and Sram AXS groupsets as ridden by the pro’s.
