Details

Trek's Madone 6 Series is race-bike royalty with an aero advantage. Hand built in the USA from Trek's 600 Series OCLV Carbon, this king of the concrete boasts Trek's super-aerodynamic KVF tube technology to smooth airflow from tip-to-tail and effortlessly turn pedal power into speed. The Madone also features Trek's stiff, beefy BB90 bottom bracket for optimal power transmission, their tapered E2 front end so you slice through corners with pinpoint precision, and an integrated and adjustable seatmast for outstanding compliance. Plus, the Shimano Ultegra Di2 electronic drivetrain offers practically telepathic shifting and the blazing-fast Race Lite wheels are an absolute dream to 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:
The Madone integrated brakes. The Madone brakeless seatstays. The Madone 3S chain-keeper.

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 Madone DuoTrap. The Madone E2 front end. The Madone Ride-Tuned No-Cut seatmast.
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 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.

Trek's Madone features a unique bottom bracket (image, right) that's 90mm wide (traditional ones are 68mm wide). This wide bottom bracket lets Trek build the frame with larger tubes for increased power transfer. Plus, the 90mm bottom bracket is machined so that the bearings can be placed directly into the frame (image) saving weight (due to fewer parts), ensuring additional pedaling efficiency and simplifying maintenance and repair.

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.

Trek Madone H1 and H2 sizing options.

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.

      This bike is so light that it almost flies. I can't believe how fast it is downhill and how easy it it to ride uphill. I wondered if I was spending money unwisely as I am no Lance Armstrong, but this is one of those times when spending money on quality pays off in performance, speed, comfort and distance.

        This bike is unreal. It may not be Italian, but they use US Defense grade carbon in the frame(raw material not legal for export), so the Italians could not build this good of a bike even if they had the engineers that Trek has. This frame/fork/seat mast combo are ridiculously light. Stock 7900 grouppo, aluminum bars and stem, aluminum clincher wheels and relatively heavy seat are well under 15lbs with pedals. Not a hint of flex in this frame, the bars feel directly connected to the cranks and rear wheel making out of the saddle sprinting almost unreal. The fork is incredible, even though Trek has not really changed their geometry the added front end stiffness makes this bike run circles around my previous bike, a Time VXRS Ulteam. This bike really will make you faster, both uphill and downhill. Plus the custom paint options in the Project One program have the best finish quality of any bike I have ever owned. Just go find a Trek demo day or ask your dealer for a test ride.

          I just started riding road bikes 8 months ago and started with a 2.1 and upgraded to the 6.5 about 6 weeks ago and cant stop riding,and now am able to keep up with the pack. It is the best thing that I have purchased in the past 5 years,,,

            This is a fast responsive state of the art machine, in an industry that has been revolutionized by new material and advanced engineering. The Madone 6.5 does everthing a high end racing bike is supposed to. Light resposive fast. What I didn't understand was how wonderful the handling is on fast decents. If you like to go fast, this is the bike for you.

              Could not be happier than I am with my Madone 6.5. I'm almost 45, and have been riding/racing a Trek Pilot for the last three years. Although the Pilot was comfortable, the handling and weight were not what I needed as I became more competitive with my riding. The Madone 6.5 is both comfortable AND fast/light/stiff. BRAVO TREK!!!
