Trek Madone 4.7 Compact

Trek is confident in the Madone range. It would have to be to name it after a notorious mountain, which would defeat mere mortals and test even the toughest of cyclists. The Trek Madone 4.7 Compact is a women’s bike, which joins this illustrious range, bringing with it the expected levels of comfort, performance and a can-do attitude. Given that the range contains many worthy cycles, let us take a more detailed overview of why this bike might be worth buying over its eminently competent siblings.

The Trek Madone 4.7 Compact has a carbon frame, which is a must-have in this sector of the road bike market. This, along with the carbon fork, allows for significant reductions in the total weight when compared to a bike that uses an aluminium frame. Riding a lighter bike can make all the difference in a competitive situation when you are a close physical match for your opponents, so carbon components and a carbon frame help to tip the balance in your favour. 10 speed Shimano gears and brakes also made by Shimano go hand in hand with Bontrager rims, tyres and other components to give the Trek Madone 4.7 Compact a wealth of quality equipment onboard.

The styling of this bike is unfussy and suitable for serious riders, with a simple blue frame and a lighter blue colour outlining the Trek decals. This is set up to be suitable for female riders and much has been tweaked to give women a fast, stable experience wherever they race.
