Trek have introduced the all-new Madone SL Gen 7, which offers the same revolutionary road race technology introduced by the seventh-generation Madone SLR at a more accessible price point. Check out the press release here:

This new addition to Trek’s ultimate race bike line-up is available at a more affordable price point thanks to a 500 Series OCLV Carbon frame, two-piece flared RSL aero handlebar and RCS Pro stem that keeps things light, fast and a bit more economical while maintaining the bike’s premium aesthetics and podium-topping performance.

Shockingly light

A new gram-shaving design and lightweight 500 Series OCLV Carbon make Madone SL nearly 300 grams lighter than the bike that came before it.

Thrillingly fast

Our fastest Madone SL ever clocks in at 54 seconds per hour faster* than the previous generation. *At 45 km/h

Remarkably smooth

Proprietary IsoFlow technology shaves weight, improves aerodynamics and smooths fatiguing bumps in the road.

Extraordinarily aero

A flared, aero-optimised bar and stem, aerodynamic riding position and newest generation of aero tube shaping cuts through the wind and puts you in the position for power.

Stock of the Madone SL6 Gen 7 is expected in December at an MSRP of R105 000 in the colourways below:

  • Crimson

Very very pretty, but I still take my 2012 Giant TCR SL ISP at 6.8kg. Now have R100k to invest to fast track early retirement.

Not even interested in reading the marketing blurb. Just looked at the price tag and said FU

The blurb is actually restrained and to the point. Nothing like the stuff Specialized puts out which must take a piece of the authors dignity and soul with it.
