Details

Dominate the local criterium or take to the open road with Trek's Madone 2.5. Built with their super-aerodynamic KVF aluminum tubes, the 2.5 C smooths the air from the tip to tail to effortlessly turn pedal power into speed and save energy. Up front, Trek's E2 tapered carbon fork makes the steering stable and predictable so you can slice through corners with pinpoint precision. Meanwhile, Trek's H2 geometry is dialed for all-day comfort with a slightly higher handlebar position. You'll also love the light, nimble Bontrager Race wheels, the excellent Shimano Ultegra compact drivetrain with super-easy gearing for conquering the climbs, and the quality brakes for speed control. On top of all this, the Madone's speed comes with versatility too; you get discreet rack and fender mounts that let you load up for commuting, wet weather and off-season training rides.

Trek's KVF tube

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.

Tapered head tube and fork.For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, tapered head tubes (see image, on left) and forks pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2-inch, see image, on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8-inch). This combination sheds weight compared to straight 1 1/2-inch systems, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to straight 1 1/8-inch systems. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.
