Trek Madone 6.5 Pro 2011 Road Bike

Trek Madone 65 Pro Overview

Trek does not put the pro tag in the name of this bike without really meaning it. The Madone 6.5 Pro is a road bike designed for professional riders who need a cycle, which they can use for training, racing and winning competitions. Its price and performance go hand in hand, allowing for carbon components and a carbon frame to slice big chunks out of its overall weight without making it feel flimsy. This bike will keep going for miles, whether winding up the side of mountains or racing at speed down the other side. Its price may be exclusive but that is precisely what you have to pay for a professional grade road bike.

Carbon is the material that professional cyclists rely upon to make sure that they have the edge. It is stronger and lighter than the alternatives and it is used liberally in the construction of the Trek Madone 6.5 Pro. The frame, forks and handlebars are all carbon, providing flexibility where it is needed and helping to lessen the jarring impact of vibrations, which can sometimes be passed from the road, through the bike and on to the rider. Calliper brakes give you suitable stopping force whilst Bontrager provides a majority of the components including the rims, tyres and saddle.

The Trek Madone 6.5 Pro is finished in a black and blue colour scheme that encompasses its frame and white on the brake levers and tyre walls gives a bit of contrast. It looks very similar to the other cycles in the Madone range, which is no bad thing, although a little more personality might have added to the overall value. Overall, this is a bike that deserves its ‘pro’ nametag, which is something that cannot be said about many other products that use marketing tricks.
