Details

The legendary Madone is now available in aluminum! Built with their super-aerodynamic KVF tubes, Trek’s 2 Series Madone smooths the air from tip to tail to effortlessly turn pedal power into speed. Up front, Trek's asymmetrical, tapered E2 front end makes the steering stable and predictable so you can slice through corners with pinpoint precision. Meanwhile, Trek's H2 geometry is dialed in for all-day comfort with a slightly higher handlebar position. You'll also love the lightweight Bontrager wheels, the excellent Shimano wide-range drivetrain with super-easy gearing for conquering the climbs and the quality brakes for speed control. All the Madone's speed comes with versatility, too because you also get discreet rack and fender mounts that let you load up for commuting, wet weather and off-season rides.

Trek's KVF tube

Trek's Kammtail Virtual Foil (KVF) is an aerodynamic tube shape that maintains its full drag-reducing benefits at every yaw angle (the direction of the wind on your frame) by removing the trailing edge of the airfoil (compare the top and bottom profiles in the image above). The result? Lightweight, aerodynamic tubing that makes your bike faster in every situation, from headwinds to tailwinds and everything in between.

Tapered head tube and fork.For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, tapered head tubes (see image, on left) and forks pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2-inch, see image, on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8-inch). This combination sheds weight compared to straight 1 1/2-inch systems, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to straight 1 1/8-inch systems. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.
