It's right for you if...
You want to go really freakin' fast. You know exactly what it's like to be off the front, battling the wind in a solo break, and want all the free speed you can get. You also know a great value when you see it, and appreciate the fit and customization options of a standard bar and stem, like being able to mount aero bars for triathlon and time trials.
The tech you get
Madone SL 6 is ready to race, right out of the box. It's built with a full Shimano Ultegra 11-speed groupset, Tubeless Ready Aeolus Comp wheels, a road-smoothing IsoSpeed decoupler, and a lightweight 500 Series OCLV Carbon frame with Kammtail Virtual Foil tubes that cut through the wind.
The final word
Ferrari performance at a Fiat price point. With Madone SL 6, you get the free speed, aerodynamic advantage, and superior ride quality of our ultimate race bike at a great value, plus the added ability to mount clip-on aero bars for time trials and triathlons.

Sizing & fit
The charts below show our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8˝, for example, will fit on the same size bike. The best way to find your perfect fit is to consult the experts at your local Trek retailer.
