Details

When the road tilts towards the sky, Trek's 16.3-pound Emonda SL 6 reacts to every pedal stoke, its OCLV carbon frame and BB90 bottom bracket launching you forward effortlessly. Then, as you get into the business of descending, the E2 head tube keeps the front end nice and stiff, and Bontrager tubeless wheels keep you carving the curves. Along the flats, a full Ultegra 11-speed drivetrain with compact cranks combines with internal cable routing to propel you to faster speeds. And on every road, the Ride-Tuned seatmast is not only lighter, it's more compliant than a traditional seatpost while the full Bonty cockpit is more than eager to add some additional miles.

Tapered head tube and fork.For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, tapered head tubes (see image, on left) and forks pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2-inch, see image, on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8-inch). This combination sheds weight compared to straight 1 1/2-inch systems, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to straight 1 1/8-inch systems. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.

Trek's Madone features a unique bottom bracket (image, right) that's 90mm wide (traditional ones are 68mm wide). This wide bottom bracket lets Trek build the frame with larger tubes for increased power transfer. Plus, the 90mm bottom bracket is machined so that the bearings can be placed directly into the frame (image) saving weight (due to fewer parts), ensuring additional pedaling efficiency and simplifying maintenance and repair.
