For years now, Trek's Madones have set the standard for excellence, winning everything from local races to Grand Tours. The full-carbon 3.1 WSD is made from TCT carbon with a Bontrager Race carbon fork. This frameset is light, stiff and comfortable because the folks at Trek are masters with the material, they do it right. The solid components are chosen for their combo of durability, reliability and straight-up value like the 10-speed 105 drivetrain with SRAM compact cranks and Bontrager wheels. Bonty Race controls and even a carbon post grace this bike. The geometry is smack-dab in the middle between upright and aggressive racer, it's neutral without feeling dull; fast, without being twitchy.
