Madone SL 6 Disc carries forward the advanced aerodynamic performance and all-around ride quality as other Madone road bike models, but it keeps the price in check with a standard stem and aero bar set up for adjustability. It's the ultimate race bike at a great value, with extraordinary race performance, aero wheels, a road-smoothing IsoSpeed decoupler, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, and the sleek look that screams for speed.
It's right for you if...
You want to go really freakin' fast. You know exactly what it's like to be off the front, battling the wind in a solo break, and want all the free speed you can get. You also know a great value when you see it, and appreciate the fit and customization options of a standard bar and stem, and the all-weather stopping power of disc brakes.
The tech you get
Madone SL 6 Disc is ready to race, right out of the box. It's built with a full Shimano Ultegra 11-speed groupset, a road-smoothing IsoSpeed decoupler, and a lightweight 500 Series OCLV Carbon frame and fork with Kammtail Virtual Foil tubes that cut through the wind. Plus, Tubeless Ready Bontrager Aeolus Comp 5 wheels, a Madone aero seatmast cap, and hydraulic disc brakes.
The final word
You get the free speed, aerodynamic advantage, and superior ride quality of our ultimate race bike at a great value, plus the added ability to mount clip-on aero bars for time trials and triathlons.
