Trek Madone SLR Gen8 - London Launch at Cyclefit

We knew something was coming and like everyone else, assumed it was a new Trek Emonda for the mountains. The effective news lockdown held until two weeks ago when Trek asked us if we could host a London launch of their all-new, highly controversial Gen8 Madone SLR. Controversial because Gen8 annexes forever the ten year run of Trek's Emonda. Launched ten years ago as the lightest road bike ever made!

Gen8 Madone is more sculpted and beautiful than outgoing Gen7 or Emonda. The ride is sharper than both.

Aero no longer means oversized

Gen 8 Madone - One Bike.

Gen8 represents a total re-think of the role of a race-bike for the next decade. No more conversations at pro or amateur level about which bike suits a particular course. Gen 8 Madone is as light as the outgoing Emonda and as aerodynamic as category leading Gen 7 Madone. It has clearances for 34mm tyres

Sarah from The London Academy is one of the first people in the UK to ride Gen8 Madone SLR. She was genuinely shocked.

  • "I tried the shorter cranks today and I like them - it feels like it's less stress for the back and it seems easier to ride higher cadence. In the end I had a good Tour with no back problems. Thanks for your help!"
