Say hello to the new Trek Madone SL and Wahoo Trail

Trek Madone SLR launched last year 

The seventh generation of the Trek Madone SLR dropped earlier this year, sparking a frenzy in the cycling world. After a successful summer of results from the newly branded Lidl-Trek team in both the women’s and men’s races/tours.

The Madone is back with an upgrade to its SL models. Integrating the Iso-flow technology, gives the Madone SL Gen 7 a breath of fresh air.

New models come with Iso-Flow

Combining the Iso-Flow with Trek’s highly regarded 500 Series OCLV Carbon frameset. The Madone SL manages to shave off 300g, making it the lightest SL model to ever feature in Trek’s Madone catalogue. It provides a lighter and much more aerodynamic ride than its predecessor.

The bike comes with a traditional, stem-handlebar set-up. However, if you’re looking to make more weight saving gains, you can upgrade the cockpit to a one-piece handlebar/stem system.

Thanks to all the weight saving and aerodynamic upgrades. The new Madone SL is Trek’s fastest SL model to date. Clocking in at 54 seconds per hour faster than previous generations at 45km/h.

It comes in two models, SL 7 and SL 6 as well as an SL frameset. The Madone SL is currently available with only two groupset options, Shimano Ultegra Di2 and Shimano 105 Di2. Pre-order yours today.

The Madone isn’t the only model in Trek’s range that is getting a slight make-over. Say hello to the new Wahoo Trail. Designed for the nippers to join in on the off-road action. 

The new Wahoo Trail 

Building on the already lightweight and sturdy Wahoo frame. It now comes with a new re-designed frame geometry that offers the same standards as Trek’s adult mountain bikes. 

Lightweight and Sturdy 

Extra Stopping power for all the trail needs 

A new carbon fork not only keeps the weight down but also gives way to ease the roots, rocks and bumps in the trail. Equipped with 2.2’’ tires allows for a ton of traction to help conquer any trail. 

With extra speed comes the great responsibility of having even more control. The new Wahoo trail sports Tektro hydraulic disc brakes with 160mm rotors for that extra stopping power that is essential. Especially in wet conditions.    

A new 1x9 drivetrain sees an upgrade in the cassette ratio (11-49) while keeping the controls to minimum. Available in 20’’ and 24’’ wheel options, the new Wahoo Trail also comes in two new colours.
