With the top spec of Trek’s latest Madone SLR coming with disc brakes, the Trek-Segafredo team bikes will use SRAM Red eTap wireless electronic shifting and SRAM’s HRD hydraulic disc brakes. The deal was announced during Trek-Segafredo’s Sponsor Summit - a yearly meeting between the team’s principal partners.

According to Jason Phillips, SRAM’s Road Sports Manager, “We’re stoked to support this world-class program. This team and these riders will represent us at the highest levels at nearly every major road race around the globe. We can’t wait for racing to start in 2019.”
