Trek's Madone 5.9 C is a feature-packed, race-ready rocket with an aero advantage. Crafted from Trek's renowned OCLV Carbon, this trick ride boasts Trek's super-aerodynamic KVF tube technology to smooth airflow from tip-to-tail and effortlessly turn pedal power into speed. The 5.9 also features Trek's stiff, beefy BB90 bottom bracket for optimal power transfer, their E2 tapered front end so you slice through corners with pinpoint precision, and an integrated, adjustable seatmast for outstanding compliance and a perfect fit. Furthering the ideal fit is Trek's H2 geometry that places the handlebars slightly higher for top comfort. And this carbon beauty is loaded! It has Shimano's amazing electronic Ultegra Di2 10-speed components for flawless shifting and powerful Shimano stoppers you'll love. And you be equally impressed with the aero Bontrager Race Lite wheels that positively fly down the road.

Trek's Madone is one of the winningest bikes in the pro peloton. It's been proven on roads all across the world, from local crits to the Tour de France. Check out the below highlights to see how it can make you faster:
The Madone integrated brakes. The Madone brakeless seatstays. The Madone 3S chain-keeper.

Brakes should slow you down, but only when you apply them. Trek's Integrated Brakes are built directly into to the Madone to reduce drag and save weight.

The Madone's integrated brakes allowed Trek to remove the brake bridge and create flowing, uninterrupted Brakeless Seatstays. The result is increased performance and aerodynamics with striking good looks.
The 3S chain-keeper is integrated directly into the frame. It's an elegant solution that prevents the chain coming off on rough roads and under hard shifts. It lets you make any shift you want at any time without worrying.
The Madone DuoTrap. The Madone E2 front end. The Madone Ride-Tuned No-Cut seatmast.
The DuoTrap seamlessly integrates an ANT+ computer sensor into the frame to measure speed, distance and cadence with no added aerodynamic drag. No zip ties, no tape, just a clean and beautiful carbon chainstay.
The E2 head tube tapers from 1 1/2 to 1-1/8 inch and is wider side to side than front to back. This minimizes weight, maximizes power transfer and improves cornering. Result: a more powerful and confident ride. Trek's Ride-Tuned No-Cut seatmast eliminates seatpost clamping forces so it can be super-light and soak up road vibrations for ride-all-day comfort. It also offers up to 10cm of adjustment, so a perfect fit is guaranteed.

Trek's KVF tube

Trek's Kammtail Virtual Foil (KVF) is an aerodynamic tube shape that maintains its full drag-reducing benefits at every yaw angle (the direction of the wind on your frame) by removing the trailing edge of the airfoil (compare the top and bottom profiles in the image above). The result? Lightweight, aerodynamic tubing that makes your bike faster in every situation, from headwinds to tailwinds and everything in between.


Trek's BB90.
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, below), ensuring additional pedaling efficiency and simplifying maintenance and repair.
Trek's BB90.

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.

    Comments:

    I've been riding a Trek 2300 for twenty years and after watching the Tour de France for the umpteenth time went and bought a new 5.9. This bike is fast, comfortable and a pure joy to ride. It is really like riding a puff of air. The Di2 shifting is just short of miraculous. I did switch to a Brooks saddle at the cost of 200 grams, but it is well worth it for comfort. Very highly recommended.
