Details

Trek's Emonda SL 8 is an incredibly light bike that rides incredibly well. Trek set out to make an amazingly light production bike, and they succeeded, with this Dura-Ace equipped bike coming in under 16 pounds. Beyond just light, this is a Trek, and they know that the ride is everything. Stiff where you want it, compliant where you need it. Along with a geometry crafted from pro racers' feedback. Only from countless wins, hours in the saddle, and tons of carbon know-how, can you get a ride like this. Providing the go is a full 11-speed Dura-Ace group with all the smoothness that Shimano is renowned for, while tubeless-ready Bontrager Race wheels give you light weight, snappy acceleration, and the wonderful feeling of never having a pinch flat again. On top of all that, this rocket is adorned with Bontrager bars, stem, and a titanium-railed saddle.

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.

Trek's Madone features a unique bottom bracket (image, right) that's 90mm wide (traditional ones are 68mm wide). This wide bottom bracket lets Trek build the frame with larger tubes for increased power transfer. Plus, the 90mm bottom bracket is machined so that the bearings can be placed directly into the frame (image) saving weight (due to fewer parts), ensuring additional pedaling efficiency and simplifying maintenance and repair.
