Trek Officially Releases New 2023 Madone SLR Road Bike

Trek has officially released the latest generation of its flagship aero road bike, the Madone SLR.

Trek worked closely with its sponsored WorldTour team to help develop the bike.

The new Madone SLR is claimed to be 300g lighter and saves more effort (approximately 60 seconds per hour) compared to the previous model. Trek says that this is largely due to the redesigned tube shapes, in particular the unique seat tube and top tube junction.

The new integrated handlebar and smaller front tube profiles saves 150g compared to the previous Madone SLR. The handlebars also promote a more aerodynamic riding position which consequently saves rider energy and time according to Trek.

Trek claim that the Madone SLR frame weighs just shy of 1000g and the fork weighs just over 400g. The complete bike with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 R9270 weighs approximately 7.1kg (size 54cm).

The Madone SLR frame is no longer compatible with mechanical groupsets, however the frame still has a threaded T47 bottom bracket.

The Madone SLR frame has a tyre clearance of 28mm.

The Madone SLR is available in sizes: 47cm, 50cm, 52cm, 54cm, 56cm, 58cm, 60cm and 62cm.

The Madone SLR is available as a frameset or as a complete bike.

Prices for complete builds start at £6,850 / €7,699 / $7,999.99 / $11,399.99AUD for the Madone SLR 6 and increase to £13,800 / €14,999 / $13,199.99 / $17,999.99AUD for the Madone SLR 9 with SRAM Red eTap.
