The Madone is one of the most well-rounded of road race bikes. The culmination of many generations of evolution and development, it's the perfect blend of speed, handling and a host of tiny details that add up to a high performance whole.
Trek's newest "H1.5" fit strikes a really nice balance between race aggression and comfort, aided by the adjustable top-tube IsoSpeed damping. It's an absolute pleasure to fit. You're not going to waste any watts on this machine, but you don't need to suffer when you put the hammer down.
Madones have always been one of the prettier race-focused frames, and this is no exception, looking super sharp in matte black/gloss red.
