2022 Trek Madone Review - A TPC Rider's Quick Take
They say speed is a byproduct of efficiency and design. Trek seems to have absorbed this lesson well in their 2023 Madone Gen 7. The Madone is a bike that has signaled its aspirations from its very name, a nod to the legendary Col de la Madone climb in France. But the question lingers: does it live up to its reputation? Read on for our quick-take review.
- Aero masterclass
- Trek engineers locked themselves in a wind tunnel with this bike. Every curve, edge, and component shouts aerodynamics. From the IsoFlow tech to the one-piece aero bar and stem this bike is designed for slicing through air.
- IsoFlow Comfort
- One of the standout features of the Madone is Trek’s IsoFlow technology, which makes for a forgiving ride, especially on longer epics. IsoFlow helps the seatmast flex, soaking up road vibrations. It’s rare for a speed-focused road bike to excel in comfort, yet here we are.
- Integrated everything
- In the Madone, the term "fully integrated" is taken to new heights. From the cables to the cockpit, everything is tucked away, contributing not just to aerodynamics but also to a jaw-dropping aesthetic.
- Price tag
- Speed and beauty come at a cost. The Madone’s premium price could act as a barrier for many. It's a serious investment, and budget-friendly aero options are out there.
- Price: $7,999 (SLR 6)
- Weight woes
- Despite the carbon fiber frame and components, the Madone isn't a featherweight in its category. It's a solid build, but riders focused on climbing might find it a tad on the heavier side.
- Weight: 17lbs (56cm)
- Versatility questions
- While the Madone excels on flat terrain and downhill blasts, it's not the most versatile option for a wide range of riding conditions. Climbers and those who encounter varying terrain may find it limiting.
The Bottom Line
The 2023 Trek Madone Gen 7 is a statement piece; it says you're serious about speed but unwilling to compromise on comfort. For competitive racers and serious enthusiasts, the Madone serves up a delicious cocktail of aerodynamics, tech, and ride comfort.
However, the steep price and slight weight disadvantage might make some riders think twice. If you're after an aero bike that has the manners of a Gran Fondo bike, the Madone ought to be on your shortlist. But if your aspirations are more attuned to scaling vertical walls or if budget is a constraint, you may want to shop around. All said and done, the Madone is a brilliant bike, one that often makes you feel like the wind is always at your back—even when it’s not.
