The Madone SL 6 is ready to race straight out of the box. Its high performance is matched by a price check that ensures you get the very best kit for your money. The 500 series OCLV carbon frame features an IsoSpeed decoupler, unique to Trek, which drastically reduces saddle discomfort on poor quality road surfaces, not only for a more enjoyable ride but a faster one. The BlendR compatible stem makes mounting a bike computer and front light simple and effective and invisible cable routed handlebars only add to the aerodynamic advantages of the SL 6. Bontrager's Aeolus Comp 5 carbon wheels offer 50mm of aero depth to help you rip through the wind on solo breakaways and are tubeless-ready, so you can run lower tyre pressures in wet conditions and not run the risk of a pinch flat. Finally, Shimano's hydraulic disc Ultegra groupset offers high performance shifting with lightweight parts to help you make the most of every single watt.
It's right for you if...
You want to go really flippin' fast. You know exactly what it's like to be off the front, battling the wind in a solo break, and want all the free speed you can get. You also know great value when you see it, and appreciate the fit and customisation options of a standard bar and stem, and the all-weather stopping power of disc brakes.
