Bicycling (South Africa) - - Birth Of An Icon - – M.P.

Trek’s Madone was al­ready the smoothest-rid­ing aero road bike around, thanks to its IsoSpeed de­cou­pler seat tube de­sign, which pro­motes more and eas­ier ver­ti­cal flex. →or the new­est ver­sion, Trek made the IsoSpeed de­cou­pler ad­justable – it can be up to 22 per cent stiffer or up to 17 per cent softer than the pre­vi­ous gen’s non­ad­justable IsoSpeed. A sim­ple dam­per was added as well, to slow the de­cou­pler’s re­bound from big­ger im­pacts. In keep­ing with cur­rent trends, Trek also added a disc-brake ver­sion. Wind-tun­nel test­ing says it’s a tiny bit slower than a Madone with rim brakes, but still crazy fast.

Trek Madone SLR 9 Disc only avail­able through Trek’s Project One pro­gramme, base price ap­prox R180 000
