Trek's Madone 6.5 is race-bike royalty with an aero advantage. Hand built in the US from 600 Series OCLV Carbon, this king of the concrete boasts Trek's super-aerodynamic KVF tubes to smooth airflow from tip-to-tail and turn all your effort into watts. The Madone also features a stiff, wide BB90 for optimal power transfer, a tapered E2 front end and fork so you slice through corners with pinpoint precision, and an integrated seatmast for outstanding compliance with minimal weight. Plus, Ultegra Di2 electronic shifting offers practically telepathic gear changes to spin the blazing-fast Race X Lite wheels. And the Bontrager handlebar, stem, and integrated brakes are just jewels in the crown of this majestic ride.
|Trek's Madone is one of the winningest bikes in the pro peloton. It's been proven on roads all across the world, from local crits to the Tour de France. Check out the below highlights to see how it can make you faster:
Brakes should slow you down, but only when you apply them. Trek's Integrated Brakes are built directly into to the Madone to reduce drag and save weight.
|The Madone's integrated brakes allowed Trek to remove the brake bridge and create flowing, uninterrupted Brakeless Seatstays. The result is increased performance and aerodynamics with striking good looks.
||The 3S chain-keeper is integrated directly into the frame. It's an elegant solution that prevents the chain coming off on rough roads and under hard shifts. It lets you make any shift you want at any time without worrying.|
|The DuoTrap seamlessly integrates an ANT+ computer sensor into the frame to measure speed, distance and cadence with no added aerodynamic drag. No zip ties, no tape, just a clean and beautiful carbon chainstay.
||The E2 head tube tapers from 1 1/2 to 1-1/8 inch and is wider side to side than front to back. This minimizes weight, maximizes power transfer and improves cornering. Result: a more powerful and confident ride.||Trek's Ride-Tuned No-Cut seatmast eliminates seatpost clamping forces so it can be super-light and soak up road vibrations for ride-all-day comfort. It also offers up to 10cm of adjustment, so a perfect fit is guaranteed.|
Trek's Kammtail Virtual Foil (KVF) is an aerodynamic tube shape that maintains its full drag-reducing benefits at every yaw angle (the direction of the wind on your frame) by removing the trailing edge of the airfoil (compare the top and bottom profiles in the image above). The result? Lightweight, aerodynamic tubing that makes your bike faster in every situation, from headwinds to tailwinds and everything in between.
Whether you're looking to be as aero as possible or for a slightly more upright riding position, Trek has a Madone for you. The H1 fit (see image, on left) is ideal for flexible riders and racers. It's Trek's most aggressive, most aero fit, one that lets you get low and fast. The H2 fit (see image, on right) is just about perfect for most other riders. It sports similar handling to the H1 but with a slightly taller head tube that allows for a higher bar height for more comfort out on the road.
