Trek Madone 5.2 C

The Trek Madone 5.2 C is an attractive road bike that targets the enthusiast market where competitive types seek out cycles, which they hope will help them win races. Trek will give you every advantage it can with this bike, although hard work and determination will also be required to make the most of its potential for speed and precise handling.

Like the rest of the range, the Trek Madone 5.2 C has a carbon frame, as this is the lightest, strongest option for racers who are buying on the current market. It also has a carbon Bontrager fork and seatpost to maintain its slim, sturdy design throughout. Components such as the tyres, rims, hubs and saddle have been chosen because they have racing pedigree and have been tried and tested in real life situations. This is the type of functionality you would expect from a bike that takes its name from a French Alp that Lance Armstrong regularly uses for training, so it is good to see Trek deliver on this promise.

Available in a plain black or a mixture of red and carbon, the Trek Madone 5.2 C can be chosen in two distinct designs, both of which have their merits. The black is subtle and classic whilst the combination of red with the metallic grey of carbon means that the bike takes on a more flamboyant look that matches many of its eye-catching contemporaries.
