500 series OCLV Carbon
OCLV Carbon is Trek’s patented carbon fibre process, the result of more than 25 years of experience building the world’s finest carbon fibre bicycles in Waterloo, Wisconsin, USA. A well-built carbon frame dramatically reduces weight compared to metallic materials, while maintaining the strength and stiffness that high performance bicycles and their riders demand. A superb balance of lightweight, strength, and stiffness that’s perfectly suited to the sophisticated frame technologies that distinguish Trek frames.
The decoupler allows the seat tube to rotate independently from the top-tube-to-seat stay junction, increasing vertical compliance to twice, without compromising pedaling efficiency.
KVF (Kammtail Virtual Foil) Tube Shape
In both real-world conditions and in the wind tunnel, Madone’s exclusive Kammtail Virtual Foil tube shape ranks among the world’s most aerodynamic ever. The revolutionary KVF tube shape has been optimized to complement Madone’s ultimate integration, creating a lightweight and super aerodynamic frame.
Blendr – compatible stem
Blendr is the ultimate integration system for clean and easy stem installation of lights, computers and other accessories. Start with a Blendr stem, add the appropriate base and finish with a mount matched to your desired accessory.
KVF (Kammtail Virtual Foil) Fork
The slippery fork features KVF aero legs to minimize drag, while the unique moulded carbon dropouts reduce weight.
The total cycling market size in India is 16.3 million cycles per year.
