Feel the balance of power and finesse aboard Trek's Madone 5.9. The power part comes from Trek's class-leading OCLV Black carbon frame, which boasts ingenious technology for a superior ride, such as a 90mm-wide bottom bracket for maximum efficiency, and the E2 headtube that's a whopping 1 1/2-inches in diameter at the base for precise steering and a super stiff front end. Finesse comes in the artful lay up of carbon, the integrated headset and bottom bracket cups with bearings that simply press into the frame saving weight and reducing maintenance, and a seatmast that saves even more weight, while making every ride comfortable. Nothing less than Dura-Ace compact cranks grace your frame, and Dura-Ace/Ultegra gearing fires off perfect shifts. Plus, Race Lite and X Lite components make the 5.9 perfect for the serious racer and casual rider alike.
The Madone 5.9 is built of Trek's OCLV Black carbon. This enthusiast-level carbon employs intermediate-modulus carbon and a sophisticated lay-up for a light, stiff and compliant bicycle ideal for all-around road riding.
Bontrager's Race Lite Carbon Fork (left) uses a standard 1 1/8-inch steerer diameter at the top in combination with a 1 1/2-inch bottom diameter to increase fork stiffness and strength. This ingenious design also significantly reduces the weight thanks to its oversize bottom, which allows using a hollow aluminum crown bonded to the carbon legs (as opposed to the solid aluminum crowns found on most traditional forks; shown on the right). Trek's oversize E2 head tube adds strength and stiffness. The result is an unbelievably stiff and super-light front end.
