This bicycle was produced by hand in Waterloo, WI, using the same molds and techniques as the Madone 6.9 SSL of the same year. The bicycle uses Trek's proprietary OCLV 110 carbon fiber material for very light weight and impressive torsional strength. An aggressive geometry provides nimble handling and lightning-fast pedaling response, especially during uphill, out-of-the-saddle efforts. Up front, a 1-1/8" Cane Creek external-cup headset holds the lightweight Bontrager Race X Lite OCLV 110 carbon fiber fork. The Madone's cables are all externally routed, allowing easy servicing in the field.
The Livestrong Madone bicycles feature real gold leaf panels on the top tube, down tube and seat tube. Lance Armstrong's signature appears across the top tube under the clearcoat. Yellow highlights and custom graphics adorn the bike and many of the components.
Shimano's 10-speed 7800 Dura Ace components are found throughout the bike, including the dual-control levers, both derailleurs, both multi-pivot brake calipers, and the 12-25T cassette. Long service life and precise operation can be expected for years to come from Shimano's best pro-level components. A Bontrager crankset with carbon fiber arms, 53/39T chainrings and matching custom graphics is an impressive centerpiece to the Livestrong Madone. Bontrager Race X Lite alloy wheels also feature custom yellow spokes and carbon fiber hubs, and are wrapped with 700x23mm Bontrager tires. A Bontrager carbon fiber seatpost, Bontrager saddle, Race XXX Lite carbon fiber stem and OCLV carbon fiber handlebar also boast custom yellow graphics.
This is Trek's answer to the question: Who makes a world-beating cross-country mountain bike that can handle marathon-length events?
The Top Fuel 9.9 could be the best full-suspension XC racer on the planet. It's absurdly light at less than 25 pounds (!!) when set up tubeless. The main frame and rear suspension arms are all made from Trek's exclusive OCLV Mountain carbon fiber, bringing incredible strength to handle every pedal stroke over rough trails. Every aspect of the main frame has been optimised for high performance without adding pounds. The frame's Straight Shot downtube eliminates plenty of material while enhancing torsional strength. Don't worry, the fork crown won't whack the down tube during a crash, thanks to a clever Knock Block steerer stop at the top of the head tube. Out back, the Active Braking Pivot (or ABP) full suspension geometry isolates braking forces from suspension movement, so every gnarly downhill hairpin won't feel like a major test of your riding talents. Control Freak internal cable routing, a tapered head tube, and downtube-mounted Carbon Armor are examples of the details that make every Trek Top Fuel mountain bike a clear leader in XC racing machines.
The air-adjustable RockShox Pike Ultimate suspension fork helps to tame rock gardens and challenging course features with ease. 120mm of travel soaks up impacts, while a bar-mounted lockout twist-lever shuts off the shock when charging along hardpan and jeep doubletrack. The rear shock is also a RockShox Deluxe Ultimate unit, bringing 115mm of travel and the aforementioned lockout function.
Trek chose SRAM's best off-road drivetrain for the Top Fuel 9.9: 12-speed Eagle AXS. Yes, this is the wireless shifting SRAM drivetrain for mountain bikes. Powered by a rechargeable Li-Ion battery, every shift is perfect. Every. Single. Time. The XX1 AXS rear derailleur can handle hard pedaling loads and poorly-timed shifts with ease. Plus, there's no shift cable or housing to get nasty in messy conditons! Cool, huh? A 10-50T SRAM Eagle rear cassette boasts a massive gearing range for roller-coaster trails and courses. Power delivery is done through a carbon fiber SRAM XX1 Eagle crankset with a 32T single direct-mount chainring.
Bontrager supplies the tubeless-ready OCLV carbon fiber Kovee Pro 30 wheelset. The 30mm-wide internal rim width allows the tire to spread out for better trail contact, enhancing lateral grip and lower rolling resistance. Boost110/148 thru-axle hubs improve lateral rigidity, while a Rapid Drive 108 rear freehub makes pedaling response lightning-quick. With a total wheelset weight of only 1500 grams (without tires or cassette), the Top Fuel 9.9 will leap out of corners and hairpins like a jackrabbit! Bontrager's 29x2.4" XR3 Team Issue tires are also tubeless-ready, bringing bags of grip to any trail surface. SRAM Level Ultimate hydraulic disc brakes boast excellent stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine (or mud).
The Top Fuel 9.9's RockShox Reverb AXS dropper post is just as high-performance as the rest of the bike. It's wireless, using a bar-mounted remote lever for clean installation, and uses the same rechargeable battery as the SRAM XX1 Eagle AXS rear derailleur. A carbon-railed Montrose Pro saddle, Kovee Pro stem, OCLV carbon fiber Line Pro handlebar complete this world-beating off-road racer.
A SRAM eTap AXS battery charger is included with the purchase of this bicycle.
This bicycle can be ordered through Trek's Project One program. Tens of thousands of color and component configurations can be ordered, making the Top Fuel 9.9 AXS uniquely your own. Please call for details.
The current generation Madone has set a very high standard for aero road bikes. Now all that performance can be had for less...
Trek's current Madone has helped pro racers win some of the most prestigious victories in professional racing, including the 2019 world road championships in Yorkshire. Attaining that technological masterpiece is not quite as expensive as it used to be. Welcome to the Madone SL 6 Disc.
The Madone has been acclaimed as a brilliant aero bike, with very low drag to cheat the wind. The original Madone SLR Disc also boasts incredibly good ride quality -not just for an aero bike, but for road bikes in general- due to an adjustable IsoSpeed seat mast. This clever element of the Madone SLR's frame is also found on the more budget-friendly Madone SL. By moving a slider on the base of the L-shaped IsoSpeed structure under the top tube forward or backward, the seatmast can be made stiffer or softer. Different rider weights, expected riding surfaces or ride distances can all be accommodated with this feature. Triathletes will appreciate this, knowing that a smoother ride quality will benefit them during the run. Century riders will also smile, knowing the bike will be more comfortable on broken tarmac. Racers will like IsoSpeed since the freshest rider is most likely the fastest in the final sprint to the finish.
Very light weight is still part of the Madone SL's attributes, thanks to Trek's exclusive 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber used throughout the frame. By using newer flat-mount disc brake installation and an H1.5 fit geometry, the frame of the Madone SL 6 Disc cuts weight in the right places. Like the current Madone SLR, Kammtail Virtual Foil (or KVF) tube shaping is used throughout the Madone SL's frame and fork, making the bike one of the slipperiest road bicycles today. The flattened trailing edge of the frame and fork tubes (the "Kammtails") make the bike far more resistant to gusty crosswinds compared to a classic teardrop shape, as well as cutting weight off the bike. An aperture in the left chainstay for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) cuts aero drag by eliminated the need for clumsy zip-ties. Even the 3S chain keeper at the crankset has been given the low-drag treatment. A stout BB90 bottom bracket anchors the crankset for flex-free power delivery with every pedal stroke.
The Domane SL 6 Disc uses Shimano's R8000 version of their venerable 11-speed Ultegra component group. This ensures precision functionality, long service life and light weight. Here are a few of the highlights:
- Redesigned dual-control levers and lever hoods that feature adjustable lever reach and a more comfortable textured grip
- A Shadow-style rear derailleur that improves shift quality and takes up to a 30T rear cog
- A Toggle-pivot front derailleur that requires less hand strength to shift to the large chainring
- A 50/34T compact crankset with a more flattened profile for better aerodynamics as well as stiffness for better power transfer
- Hydraulic disc brakes with improved heat dispersion and 160mm rotors for improved stopping power
An 11-30T Ultegra cassette and Ultegra chain add a wide gearing range for challenging courses, as well as precision shifting and low drivetrain friction.
Bontrager supplies the tubeless-ready Aeolus Comp 5 Disc wheelset and 700x25c R3 Hard-Case Lite tires, adding an extra aerodynamic weapon to the Madone SL 6's arsenal. A 50mm deep rim with a bullet-nosed profile not only slices the air in a wider range of wind angles, it handles better in gusty crosswinds. Shimano Ultegra hydraulic flat-mount disc brakes boast excellent stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine. The Madone SL 6's Bontrager Aeolus Comp saddle is a new design that enhances comfort for riders in an aggressive aero position. A conventional alloy Bontrager Pro Blendr stem and alloy Elite Aero VR-CF road handlebar accept clip-on aero bars for triathletes seeking a better bike for technical courses.Bikeradar awarded the Madone SL 6 their “Aero Road Bike of the Year” title! Come in for a test ride and see why!
The Emonda SLR is one of Trek's flagship machines. Just pick it up, and you'll know...
Using absurdly, stupifyingly light 700 Series carbon fiber is just a small part of why the Emonda SLR is such an incredible bike. The frame engineers at Trek knew that the right combination of different qualities of carbon fiber can make a bike perform effortlessly. Immense torsional strength is needed to help with power transfer and precise handling. Measurable frame compliance can take the edge off rough pavement and keep the rider fresher for longer, making the difference in a final sprint to the finish line. Several different qualities of carbon fiber are used to produce these seemingly confliciting performance characteristics. When Trek uses their Optimum Compaction, Low Void (or OCLV) manufacturing process, they reduce the need for excess resin in the frame, keeping overall weight low and improving quality control.
They could use garden-variety frame elements seen on bikes around the world, but Trek knew they could make a bike better. A Ride Tuned no-cut seatmast and cap still allows for plenty of saddle adjustment, but the seatmast itself adds an extra dash of smoothness to the ride quality. It also cuts more weight off the Emonda SLR's frame, especially at the top of the bike where it counts more for out-of-the-saddle sprinters and uphill efforts. A press-fit BB90 bottom bracket anchors the crankset better than a thread-in unit while still keeping weight low. Adding a tapered head tube allowed the engineers to build an oversized down tube that enhances the frame's torsional strength while still keeping weight down. Direct-mount brake caliper installation improves frame strength as well as reducing weight. An aperture in the left chainstay is meant for a Bontrager DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor, eliminating the need for clumsy zip-ties. Internal cable routing keeps the Emonda SLR looking clean and sleek. The more upright H2 fit of this Emonda SLR allows a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to get comfortable.
Shimano's 11-speed Ultegra R8000 components are found throughout this Emonda SLR, including the dual-control levers, derailleurs, 50/34T compact crankset and direct-mount rim brakes. An 11-32T cassette offers a wide gearing range to help on fearsome inclines. Long life, precise operation and lightning-quick shifting are the hallmarks of Shimano's performance-oriented Ultegra component group. Bontrager's tubeless-ready alloy Paradigm Comp wheelset and 700x28c R3 Hard-Case Lite tires add easy acceleration and a smooth feel.
