Trek Émonda SLR 6 - Weight, Price, Specs

2023 trek émonda slr review - a tpc quick-take.

  • Aerodynamics: Enhanced by truncated airfoil profiles, integrated bar, and stem to minimize drag.
  • Lightweight: The complete bicycle in a size 56cm weighs just 14.9 lbs.
  • Ride experience: Exceptionally light and agile, ideal for climbing and acceleration.
  • Advanced geometry: The H1.5 geometry offers aggressive, upright positions.
  • High-quality materials: Uses 800 Series OCLV Carbon for aero profiles without added weight.
  • T47 bottom bracket: Offers ease of maintenance and compatibility with oversized crank spindles.
  • Price: With a high price tag, it's a significant investment.
  • Limited comfort on rough surfaces: More efficient than comfortable, though this can be mitigated with wider tires.
  • Complex front cockpit: Adjustments in the front cockpit area can be challenging due to the brake hose setup and integrated stem/bar combo.
  • Handling: Requires attention on descents and may not feel as relaxed as more casual bikes.

Trek Emonda SL6 Pro review

Trek's latest GC/climbing bike has undergone an aero transformation, but has it helped?

trek emonda sl6 pro

The radical changes brought about in this new Emonda frame are somewhat hampered within the SL range owing to the heavier nature of the frame and subsequent ride quality of the 500 Series OCLV carbon. It is a solid all-round performer and there's no getting away from the fact the ride quality provides a good balance of efficiency and ride comfort. It's just if you were looking for an improvement on the ride of the previous model you'll need to hold off and get one of the higher level SLR models to truly see improvements.

New SL frame has lost some of the excitement of the existing Émonda

Heavy for a 'climbing' bike

You can trust Cycling Weekly. Our team of experts put in hard miles testing cycling tech and will always share honest, unbiased advice to help you choose. Find out more about how we test.

Trek recently released a brand new re-imagining of the Emonda, the brand's lightweight climbing/GC model platform, featuring a drastically aero-ised chasis. The model family is split into a higher tier SLR and the lower SL range that this SL6 Pro sits in, the critical difference is in the carbon layup and the enhanced integration sported by the SLR range.

The frame on the Emonda SL6 Pro is constructed of Trek's own 500 Series OCLV carbon fibre. This carbon layup might be heavier than the newly showcased ultra light 800 Series OCLV of the top level SLR Émonda's but is considerably more economical to produce, helping keep the SL range prices in a much more affordable tier.

>>> The Trek Madone gets an update, but you won't spot it

The new Emonda features a completely new set of tube shapes, most of which have gone down the aero route. But Trek is at pains to keep the comparisons to the Madone aero race bike to a minimum; this isn’t simple a ‘Madone Lite’. Rather than being the same elongated shapes as found on a proper aero race bike, the aero shaping of the Emonda’s tubes is much more subtle and is based around the principle of unsteady aerodynamics.

In this case it’s more about how drag is affected through wind gusts and other factors at slower speeds than the usual 45km/h, after all, not even pros climb at these speeds. There are still the characteristic truncated airfoil shapes that we associate with aero frames but the effect is far less dramatic and produces a frame that still has a traditional look.

Trek Madone SLR9 Disc review

Trek hasn’t jumped on the dropped seatstay bandwagon with the new frame either, preferring to stick to a set of widely spaced yet aero shaped, thin seat stays.

The new frame also enjoys a little more integration, bringing it more in-line with the Madone. All models now see the cable routing brought neatly into the frame at the front of the headtube keeping the front end profile as slippery as possible.

The other notable feature of the new frame is a wholesale move to the T47 bottom bracket standard . This style marries the reliability of a threaded shell with the capability of running larger diameter internal bearings and enables Trek to maintain its characteristic wide and efficient bottom bracket stance.

The new Emonda range has also been designed with Trek’s middle-ground H1.5 geometry ensuring a set of numbers that sits it half way between the ultra-aggressive pro H1 and its laid back and relaxed, endurance specific H2 geometry. A tall stack of split spacers under the stem provides plenty of height adjustment for a wide range of rider requirements.

trek emonda 52cm

And finally, keeping the Emonda in a pretty rigid user set Trek has bucked another trend and limited tyre clearance to just 28c putting the focus of the bike purely on road going high performance.

The SL6 Pro sits near the top of the SL range and as such has a a pretty decent spec sheet. A mechanical Shimano Ultegra is the least we would expect at the +£3,000 price point and we don't need to point out how reliable and consistent it is in providing smooth shifting and braking.

As with the entire Emonda range the SL6 Pro runs on Bontrager wheels; Aeolus Elite 35 to be precise. These feature a carbon 35mm depth and complement the new 'aero' frame without compromising too much on weight and climbing ability. They feel stiff under power and spin up to speed relatively quickly. There are lighter and faster wheels that would suit the new frame but at this price point the Aeolus Elite is spot on. The tyres are Bontrager as well, in this instance 25mm R2 Hardcase Lite tyres. These are not Bontrager's fastest tyres, more classed as an everyday tyre with plenty of puncture protection.

trek emonda 52cm

In a complete whitewash the entirety of the finishing kit is also provided by Bontrager. Unlike the integrated carbon bar/stem of the higher end SLR models, the SL6 Pro is fitted with a standard aluminium handlebar and separate stem, allowing for much simpler cockpit customisation. Despite the more ordinary setup the cable routing is still really neat underneath the stem without needing any additional housing.

The Émonda maintains the 'reversed' seat post, with a larger diameter seatpost mast fitted over the seat tube. This allows for plenty of adjustment plus further lengths are available if needed. The Bontrager Aeolus saddle also stands out for being incredibly comfortable even when sat right on the nose.

trek emonda 52cm

I was curious to see if the new Emonda was able to improve on the ride quality of the highly rated existing version and the short answer is yes, well kind of....

The first thing to note is that in this new guise, the lower SL version I have on test feels a little chunky at over 8 kilograms - not something you expect when the bike's raison d'etre is all about low weight and climbing. However a total mass doesn't always equate to an anchor of a ride experience and this is true of the Émonda.

Trek has managed to provide a level of stiffness around the bottom bracket that enables the Émonda to deliver in its promise of rewarding effort. Granted it takes less effort to maintain speeds on flat and rolling terrain, much like the Madone aero bike, and I'm certain it is a 'faster' bike than the last version. But I can't help but feel that this new design has stifled some of the existing model's lively and exciting ride nature - it feels like using adjectives such as solid and dependable is more appropriate, almost like the Domane endurance bike.

trek emonda 52cm

Trek's relaxing of the geometry on the Emonda has increased its ability to keep you comfortable and riding hard on a long ride and I had no issue taking on some challenging and long routes around Dorset and South Wales. The tall stack of shaped and split spacers sit the cockpit a little too high for my personal preference but luckily I was able to drop the stem height by using some standard spacers on top of the stem, without needing to cut the steerer. This put a little more weight on the front wheel which enabled me to descend the Émonda with aplomb and happily stuff it into downhill corners at high speed without any of the vague feeling that can come with a front end that is a touch too high.

Climbing is where the Emonda should thrive and it certainly is no slouch on your typical British climb, however it doesn't set the tarmac alight and the near eight kilo weight does neuter the Émonda's ability to counter attack when your riding mates try to accelerate away from you on a climb.

It feels like I'm being a little harsh and critical of the Emonda SL6 Pro, after all in most respects it is a solid all-rounder and I have enjoyed my time riding the bike over the last few months. It's a great looking bike and I expect most riders will be satisfied with the performance, it's just I feel it has a lost a little of the magic the old version had. If you are looking for the sort of engaging ride the Emonda is known for I suspect you would need to save your pennies and opt for one of the lighter SLR options and certainly if it was my money that would be what I would need to do.

Spotted: New Trek at the Dauphine…is it an Emonda? Is it a Madone?

Whatever it is, it’s another for the ‘one bike’ field of racers

The train of pre-Tour bike releases has already left the station, kicked off with a new Wilier seen underneath Lenny Martinez a few days ago. It is now speeding up, fuelled by another new bike spotted at the prime race for Tour de France tech testing, the Critérium du Dauphiné . Before I torture the metaphor too much, I’ll just say this: We’re not entirely sure what this bike is.

Walking for some lunch I stumbled on the team bus and snapped a few spy shots. The new bike isn’t something unexpected, with a new frame spotted on the WeightWeenies forum back at the start of the year , but its use in racing has been unseen until now. Given development timeframes we assumed it would be a new Emonda, but it bears more than a passing resemblance to the team’s aero option, the Madone.

 Another one-bike race solution

Whatever the model name, Madone or Emonda (Madonda? Emondone?), this is clearly yet another example of teams (or brands) pushing for a single race bike that’s neither an all-out aero machine nor a featherweight climber. In much the same way as the Tarmac SL8 and the Bianchi Specialissima , whatever this bike is, it is almost certainly the only bike we will see the team riding during the Tour de France and beyond. 

The hole in the seat tube remains, which is where it bears its most striking resemblance to the current Madone. Dubbed ‘IsoFlow’, this apparently aids airflow at the rear of the bike, as well as cantilevering the seatpost. 

Hopping to the front of the bike, there are again similarities to the Madone. The fork legs are more or less as deep, and the slightly kinked downward lower surface of the top tube remains. The head tube, though, is less deep, and as you move rearwards the effects of a clear carbon-starved diet are plain to see. 

The top tube is similar to the Madone, though the downtube is less deep. The seat tube, ignoring the hole at the top for a second, is still scalloped around the rear wheel for improved airflow, but the chainstays are substantially narrower. This follows the trend of the latest race bikes opting for a strategy of aero up front, where it has the greatest impact, and weight saving at the rear.

Madone or Emonda, expect to see it at the Tour de France.

Aero bottles

Something that is new for this bike is aero bottles. We've seen some before on the Cannondale SuperSix but the EF squad doesn't use them. It seems Lidl-Trek is however using a custom set of bottles clearly aimed with aero in mind.

Brand new lightweight Trek Madone spotted: Has Trek killed the Emonda?

We get a close look at the bike that may become Trek’s one-and-only road race option

Liam Cahill / Our Media

Liam Cahill

A new, slimmed-down Trek Madone RSL has been spotted at the Critérium du Dauphiné, raising questions about the future of Trek’s road racing lineup.

The unreleased bike has been on a diet, compared to the current aero-focussed Madone – but retains the Madone name on the top tube. Trek's IsoFlow design – the hole in the seat tube – is present, too.

There are no official details on the new bike yet but, with Lidl-Trek riders using Trek's latest machine at the Dauphiné – a key Tour de France shakedown race – a release is likely to be around the corner.

One bike to rule them all?

2025 Trek Madone

The first notable aspect of the new bike is the slimmed-down silhouette. 

Trek seems to have reduced the depth of tube shapes across the frame, suggesting the Madone has been on a diet to make it lighter.

2025 Trek Madone

This may mean that Trek claims the Madone can be used on all stages of a road race, be that the high mountains or flat sprint stages.

2025 Trek Madone

To do so, Trek will have had to take steps to retain the Madone’s aerodynamic credentials – though without wind tunnel and real-world testing data, it is impossible to decipher whether this is the case at this point in time.

2025 Trek Madone

What about the Emonda?

2025 Trek Madone

The key consideration is whether Trek has left space in its racing line-up for its current climbing bike, the Emonda .

Trek’s Emonda is currently the only bike the Lidl-Trek team has in use that can be built down to the UCI’s 6.8kg minimum weight limit. A 56cm Madone, for example, tipped our scales at 7.29kg for the existing model.

2025 Trek Madone

The slimmed-down tubes suggest weight savings.

Specialized killed off its Venge aero race bike, replacing it with the Tarmac SL7 and later refining the design with the current Tarmac SL8 . Pinarello, meanwhile, is among the brands to also offer one race bike, sticking steadfast to the Dogma for Team Ineos-Grenadiers.

If Trek has reduced the Madone’s weight to get closer to the UCI's minimum limit, it would be hard to see any racer opting for the less aero Emonda.

IsoFlow...lite

Mads Pedersen's 2024 Paris-Roubaix Trek Madone SLR

Trek sent the cycling world into a minor meltdown when it introduced the previous Madone in 2022 .

The IsoFlow seat tube hole and cantilevered seat post divided opinion, to put it mildly, but the design is back on the latest Madone, which comes only two years after the original release.

Mads Pedersen's Trek Madone with IsoFlow seat tube hole

Back in 2022, IsoFlow replaced the IsoSpeed ‘decoupler’ system, which had been a feature of the Madone since it went all-in on aero with the 9 Series in 2015 .

Trek claimed IsoFlow allowed the Madone SLR to match the compliance of the previous IsoSpeed system on its stiffest setting. It was also said to improve the aerodynamic performance of the frame by “around 3 watts”, while saving weight.

It is unclear whether Trek has refined the IsoFlow system in any way. As a result, we’ll have to wait for word from the brand about drag reduction.

2025 Trek Madone

Aero water bottles

2025 Trek Madone

While the standard shape of a water bottle is ideal for fitting any bottle and cage to your bike, their tubular profile is not exactly aerodynamically optimised.

Some brands, such as Pinarello, make an effort to smooth the airflow onto the down tube bottle by recessing the mounting points into the tube.

Others, such as BMC, design proprietary bottle cages that sit flush with the down tube and seat tube.

2025 Trek Madone

Trek appears to have taken a different approach, creating a bottle and cage system that, at first glance, is specifically designed for the Madone SLR.

It’s a measure that we often see on time trial bikes, but with racers requiring several bottle hand-ups throughout a stage, it hasn’t yet been a common sight on the road.

2025 Trek Madone

Given that the new Madone has been seen with specific aero bottles, we would expect Trek to admit this plays a key role in keeping the Madone SLR as fast as the outgoing bike, if not making it faster.

When will we find out for sure? Well, there's no official news yet, but we'll bring it to you when Trek's ready to announce this new Madone.

Trek keep the guessing game going with 'Madone/Émonda' at Critérium du Dauphiné

A fter recently teasing a new bike on social media during the Giro d’Italia , Lidl-Trek riders have been spotted aboard what appears to be a new edition of the brand’s Madone aero bike at the key Tour de France tune up race, the Critérium du Dauphiné . 

Shots of the bike show the word Madone clearly marked on the top tube. However, Trek is evidently keen to keep the guessing game going, with closer inspection revealing the name Émonda just showing through beneath the white lettering.

Since Trek's climbing focused Émonda hasn't been updated since 2020, whilst the aero Madone had a refresh in 2022, knowledge of cycling's product cycles would suggest the former would be next in line for a renewal. However, when it became clear that a new bike was on the cards, at Cycling Weekly , we placed our bets on a Madone . 

Now that the bike is being ridden at the Tour warm-up race, it looks more and more likely that we're anticipating an aero racer, and perhaps even the end of the Émonda climbing machine.

Other brands, most notably Specialized with the Tarmac SL8 , have converged their aero and lightweight bikes, to create one all purpose machine, and it looks as if Trek may be aiming to provide the same for the likes of Mads Pedersen and Tao Geoghegan Hart. 

The new bike still features Trek's 'IsoFlow' tech, a hole in the seat tube which replaced the compliance boosting 'Isospeed' that Trek was so well known for, in the name of improved aerodynamics. 

Of course, it's possible Trek may have applied this tech to its climbing machine. However, the fork legs have a similar depth to the brand’s aero machine and the kink in the downward surface of the bike’s top tube is still present. 

Clearly, whatever name the bike will take, it works - Pedersen rode to victory and claimed the race’s first yellow leader’s jersey aboard the new weapon. 

Having been the source of speculation for several months, it's obvious that this bike is primed to be used by Lidl-Trek riders during the Tour and other major races this season. 

Meanwhile, other brand new bikes have been spotted at the Dauphiné last weekend. This included the new Pinarello Dogma F and a fresh new Canyon Aeroroad .

"One of the fiercest climbing bikes available, the new Émonda is even faster thanks to a dose of aero"

"I expect so much from a modern high-end pro-level road racing bike that it’s hard to exceed those expectations. It’s rare when a bike does: The Émonda SLR is one of those rare bikes."

No image available

"It's an incredible update from Trek"

"The updated Emonda packs one helluva punch, and Trek has a winner on its hands. The integrated cockpit is nice and all, but the real win is the H1.5 fit, which makes the Emonda feel more stable while maintaining the aggression and responsiveness of previous Emondas. That, coupled with a lightweight construction, comfortable ride, and aerodynamic shaping, brings Trek's top of the line climber from a very good bike to an excellent one."

"The Emonda is still light, and it’s still stiff, but now there’s an extra dose of free speed"

"Overall, Trek has done a solid job here of updating the Emonda, infusing meaningful improvements in several key areas, but without breaking the basic formula that has made the bike so popular."
