2020 Trek Madone SL 6 Disc Bike Launched

Madone SL 6 Disc 2020

Trek have had a busy couple of months with several new bike launches and a whole range of new and improved Bontrager accessories and parts. This is the first of a series of posts detailing some of our favourites.

The Madone SLR has been the most popular high end bike we have ever done, the only downside was the starting price was prohibitive. The new 2020 Madone SL 6 Disc aims to address that issue. The new bike is straight out of the same mould and featuring almost all of the same technology as the top of the range model. The changes are a move to a standard handlebar and stem instead of the fully integrated one on the SLR, although you can upgrade at a later stage to the full aero, integrated one.

If you want to follow the numbers more closely I’m on Strava as Rob Cummins Wheelworx or if you’re more of a pictures instead of reading type I post on Instagram as wheelworxrob.

The other change is a switch from 700 series carbon to the cheaper 500 series. There is a slight weight penalty but it is very small. The aero benefits and the massive comfort from the isospeed decoupler (effectively a shock absorber/suspension beam) more than outweigh any tiny weight increase.
