The new Trek Madone SLR has been thoroughly tested with the men and women of Team Trek-Segafredo to create a bike that is even faster and even lighter.
This summer, the pros of Trek-Segafredo rode the Madone SLR at the biggest events in the cycling calendar – first and foremost at the Tour de France and Tour de France Femmes. And that’s exactly where the Madone SLR has already scored its first successes. For example, Mads Pedersen (26) took a stage victory at the Tour in impressive style when he secured the 13th stage to Saint-Etienne. Also riding the new Madone SRL is Shirin van Anrooij. After a remarkable stagiaire period with Trek-Segafredo in 2020, Shirin was given a neo-pro contract and joined compatriots Ellen van Dijk and Lucinda Brand in her first year in the elite class. The reigning European U23 champion has already gained experience in some of the biggest races on the UCI calendar and was honored as best young rider at the Tour de France Femmes this year.
The same Madone SLR is ridden by both men and women of Team Trek-Segafredo in the most important bike races. Trek customizes bikes to each rider, but does not differentiate between genders for the bikes of its professionals. Each rider has different demands and requirements when it comes to saddles or handlebars, and everyone deserves a bike that fits perfectly and offers a great riding experience, regardless of gender, anatomy, and riding style. Small difference: the women ride the Madone SLR in light blue, the men in red.

All-new IsoFlow technology
The comfort of the road bike is due to the spectacularly designed rear triangle, which Trek calls IsoFlow. The all-new IsoFlow technology absorbs fatigue-inducing road bumps in a way that pros can pedal more powerfully for longer. IsoFlow is a race-oriented evolution of the IsoSpeed comfort technology as known from the Domane. It efficiently dampens bumps, guarantees a smoother ride, improves aerodynamics and makes the frame lighter overall – which saves valuable seconds in the saddle.
When it comes to achieving race-deciding speeds, the devil is in the proverbial detail. Every element of the new Madone SLR has been impressively sculpted into Trek’s most aerodynamic frame ever. This is made possible by the new Kammtail tube profiles, the aerodynamically optimised handlebar/stem unit and the all-new IsoFlow technology, which optimally guides and accelerates the air along the frame for even more speed.
The Madone SLR is the ultimate racing machine. Years of research and development have influenced every inch of the now 7th generation Madone SLR. The result is something to behold: Frame, cockpit and geometry make the bike a whopping 19 watts faster. Compared to previous generation at 45km/h.
