Could this be the one bike to rule them all?

The Madone SL 6 seems to be a favorite for many riders looking to upgrade for lots of reasons. From recreational riders to triathletes to crit racers, many are looking for a machine that does everything well. And at a reasonable price. When engineering the Madone SL 6, Trek started with their proprietary 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber, ensuring very light weight and impressive strength. Kammtail Virtual Foil (or KVF) frame shaping is used throughout the Madone SL 6, bestowing eye-opening drag numbers while keeping overall frame weight very low. Aero road bikes are frequently criticized for handling like a sailboat in gusty crosswinds, but the Kammtail frame shape presents a much smaller target to the wind, no matter what direction or angle. Internal cable and hose routing gives the Madone SL 6 a very clean, uncluttered profile to the wind. There's even an aperture for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor in the left chain stay (sold separately), eliminating the need for clumsy zip-ties. The overall geometry of the Madone SL 6 is Trek's H1.5 fit, allowing for a more aggressive rider posture.

Madone SL 6 Disc gives you the advanced aerodynamic performance and all-around ride quality of our ultimate race bike at a great value. It has aero wheels, a road-smoothing IsoSpeed decoupler, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, and a sleek look that screams for speed.

It's right for you if...
You want to go really freakin' 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 a great value when you see it and appreciate the fit and customization options of a standard bar and stem and the all-weather stopping power of disc brakes.

Why you'll love it
- Adjustable Top Tube IsoSpeed lets you adjust compliance to your preference, and it's damped with an elastomer so it rebounds in a smooth, controlled, stable motion
- All the aero advantages of Madone, plus the added capability to clip-on aero bars for triathlons and time trials
- Disc brakes offer better braking performance and extra clearance for wider, more stable tires
- The Madone seatpost has an integrated mount for the Bontrager Flare RT tail light
