2016 Trek Madone: The technology behind the Ultimate Race Bike


The all-new Madone is a marvel in road cycling engineering. This bike will live in history as the product that transformed the standards of race bike performance forever. With unparalleled aerodynamics, unmatched ride quality, and unprecedented integration, this bike is the most advanced piece of cycling engineering in the history of the sport. The all-new Madone starts with Trek’s proprietary OCLV Carbon. Using Kammtail Virtual Foil design, the frame is built from the ground up to be stiff and fast. Trek’s revolutionary IsoSpeed decoupler is integrated into the frame to achieve superior vertical compliance and maximum efficiency. Each component is chosen for unrivaled integration. From the integrated headset and hidden cables, to the placement of water bottles, every detail of the new Madone translates into an incredibly smooth rider interface. And the proof lies in the performance. In the wind tunnel and on the road, the all-new Madone outclasses every competitor in aerodynamics and vertical compliance, making it the first true aero road bike with a ride quality that lives up to its advanced engineering. The Madone is the ultimate race bike. The future is now.
