The New Trek Émonda Is Faster Than Ever

Already one of the fiercest climbing bikes available, the new Émonda is even faster thanks to a dose of aero.

The Takeaway: The Émonda SLR is a benchmark pro race bike—and it’s surprisingly rider friendly.

  • It has 183 grams less drag than the previous generation, but the frame is only 33 grams heavier
  • There are 10 models starting at $2,699
  • SL models ($2,699 to $5,999) have the aerodynamic shaping and features but in a frame that’s about 400 grams heavier than the SLR
  • SLR models ($6,699 and up) use a new carbon fiber composite that’s 30 percent stronger than Trek’s previous top-of-the-line carbon.

For Émonda SLR bicycles, Trek will provide an individual handlebar and stem until an updated handlebar/stem combo is available.

Additionally, all customers who bring in their handlebars for replacement will also receive a $100 in-store credit that can be used toward any Trek or Bontrager merchandise through December 31, 2022.

Remember professional road racing ? It’s that thing where super skinny people go unbelievably fast up and down hills and fly over flat roads for hours at a time. It’s been a while since the pros have beat up on each other for our entertainment, but there might, hopefully, be some races on the horizon. When the races do resume, Trek’s pro riders will be aboard its new third-generation Émonda climbing bike. The new Émonda isn’t lighter, but it is faster thanks to a dose of aerodynamic tuning.

Making the new Émonda frame more aerodynamic wasn’t exactly a tough hurdle as the previous Émonda had virtually zero aerodynamic optimization. But adding meaningful aerodynamic benefit while achieving the frame stiffness expected of a pro-caliber race bike, maintaining the well-regarded handling properties of the previous Émonda, and adding rider-friendly features like a threaded bottom bracket—all with adding only 33 grams (SLR frame, claimed)—is quite a feat.

Below you’ll find my review of the Émonda SLR—I’ve been on it since early March—followed by a dive into the technology and features of the new bike, and a brief model breakdown.

Ride Impressions: Émonda SLR 9 eTap

trek emonda slr 9 etap

The Émonda SLR is a tool made to fulfill the needs of some of the world’s best road racers. This bike will never be as comfortable or versatile as a gravel bike. Going fast on pavement and climbing performance are its only goals. These are obvious facts, but that’s the lens through which it must be viewed. And through this lens, it is one of the very best.

The new Émonda was born out of a request from Trek’s pro racers and pitched as the company’s “fastest climbing bike ever.” So little surprise they set me up with the lightest model (the SLR 9 with SRAM Red eTap ), which also has a build kit almost identical to the team’s bikes. It’s also, excepting customized Project One builds, the most expensive model at a buck under 12 grand.

That massive pile of clams gets you an aerodynamic frame with disc brakes, power meter, and wireless electronic shifting that weighs less than 15 pounds (54cm). And that’s with a hefty T47 threaded bottom bracket unit, lustrous paint , clincher wheelset, a chain-watcher, standard butyl tubes, 37mm deep rims, 160mm disc rotors front and rear, and SRAM’s largest Red cassette (10-33). That’s “Holy shit!” impressive.

By cutting drag a ton without adding much weight, it’s hard to argue with Trek’s claim that the new Émonda is faster than the outgoing generation. But if you have any doubts, they’ll be erased when you ride it. This is an explosive bike: it feels as light as a feather and as solid as a steel girder at the same time.

trek emonda slr 9 etap

Trek’s Émonda has always been a raw and rowdy bike that feels a little wild and a bit dangerous in precisely the ways you want a race bike to feel: That’s not lost with the added aerodynamics. If anything, the new Émonda is even crisper and punchier than before, which is saying something.

preview for Tested

A small downside to all this fury is the Émonda’s smoothness. Light and stiff race bikes aren’t a smooth-riding lot to begin with, but even measured against a stiffer riding genre, the new Émonda is on the firmer end of the scale. Still, it escapes harsh or punishing labels—I did a six-hour ride on the Émonda on the stock 25 tires and didn’t feel worn down by its ride. Swapping to 28s helped a lot (no surprise) and were on the Émonda for the bulk of my testing. I’d suggest reserving the lighter and more aerodynamic stock 25s for racing or PR attempts—assuming good roads—and use 28s as daily drivers.

The Émonda’s handling is excellent. Well, let me caveat that: Road racing geometry is pretty uniform, so whether I’m on a current race bike from Trek, Specialized, Cannondale, Cervélo, Canyon, Colnago, Wilier, Pinarello, BMC, Giant (etc., etc.), I find the broad strokes of their handling feel and performance quite similar. There wasn’t anything about the Émonda’s handling or cornering performance that set any new benchmarks for me, but there wasn’t anything to dislike either.

trek emonda slr 9 etap

It was quick and accurate, diving into corners with a light touch. It offered great feedback, so I always knew where I was relative to its and my limits, and I could count on it to be consistent and predictable. It was maybe a touch less settled in bumpy corners than the Specialized Tarmac, but the Émonda never broke traction or skipped. Overall, for such a light bike, the Émonda is remarkably solid and drama free. I’d have no qualms barreling down a technical alpine descent on the Émonda.

I received this test bike in early March, giving me plenty of time to ride it back to back with its primary competition—a Specialized S-Works Tarmac , what I consider the benchmark for aero-ized lightweight bikes. The Tarmac is smoother over the bumps and has a silkier feel overall, but the new Émonda feels more efficient, like it can go faster more easily.

I’ve also ridden a good slice of the Émonda’s competition, including the Canyon Ultimate CF SLX , Colnago V3Rs, Cannondale SuperSix Evo , Cervélo R5, Wilier Zero SLR , Pinarello Dogma F12 . These are all superb bikes, but I feel the Émonda is the class leader. It feels sharper and more explosive than all of them. It feels faster, and that’s what matters most in a race bike. But I also like that the Émonda is pretty straightforward and rider-friendly.

trek emonda slr 9 etap

For example, I swapped the stock one-piece bar/stem for a standard stem and round bar. One, I could run a standard bar and stem on this bike, which you can’t say about every modern race bike. And two, I didn’t have to pull any cables, wires, or hoses to make the swap: Again, something you can’t say about all race bikes. For the record, the shape of the one-piece Aeolus bar/stem is great, and the tops are the most comfortable to grab of all the aero-topped bars I've used. The only reason I swapped is my preferred length and width combination (110x40) wasn't available yet.

The BB is threaded, which makes it easier to service and replace than a press-fit (however, I was getting some noise out of the BB area, which I never resolved). The wheels employ standard offset, and it uses regular thru-axles. It’s compatible with pod-style power meters and mechanical shifting. Its signature seat mast is pretty much the only non-standard thing about this frame, and even then, it’s pretty user-friendly. There’s no cutting necessary, height adjustment is ample, the saddle clamp is easy to use, and it’s travel-case friendly.

trek emonda slr 9 etap

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.

Team Request

The new Émonda is partially a result of a request from the Trek-Segafredo race team. “They are one of our primary customers,” said Jordan Roessingh, Trek’s director of road product. “And they started to realize that it’s not just weight, it’s not just stiffness and responsiveness, there’s this other thing—aerodynamics and speed—that’s also really important to be competitive and be faster on the bike. They had been one of the loudest voices saying, ‘We need the lightest-weight, stiffest bike possible.’ And now they started coming back saying ‘We need those things, but we also need the bike to be faster in order for us to be really competitive.’ ”

It is (comparatively) easy to make a light frame, it is easy to make a stiff frame, it is easy to make an aerodynamic frame. Making a frame that’s two of those three things is more challenging: Making a bike more aerodynamic usually makes it heavier, making a bike lighter typically makes it less stiff, etc. Making a frame that is light AND stiff AND aerodynamic enough to satisfy the demands of a top-level professional race team is extremely difficult.

trek emonda slr 9 etap

But not impossible. Many brands already make a light, stiff, and aero bike. The Specialized Tarmac is one, as are the Canyon Ultimate, the Cannondale SuperSix Evo, the Cervélo R5, the Wilier Zero SLR, the Pinarello F12, the Scott Addict, and the new Giant TCR . All of them seek to balance the three qualities—light, stiff, and aero—in the pursuit of the ideal race bike, and they all manage the balance differently. The common thread between these bikes: They’re all used by teams that compete against Trek-Segafredo.

Still Light, Now With Aero

The previous generation Émonda SLR Disc , launched in 2017, was an extremely light frame at 665 grams (claimed). But when a frame is already that light, it is much harder to make it even lighter. At least lighter enough to make a meaningful difference.

emonda drag chart

So, Trek took a different approach to making its climbing bike faster—instead of lighter, it made it more aerodynamic. The new Émonda frame is a touch heavier—yet still extremely light at 698 grams—but the bike has 183 grams less drag than the previous generation.

The important thing to note here is that, though the frame is more aerodynamic, the 183 gram drag reduction is not from the frame only. New wheels and a new aero bar (more info on both below) play a role. The specific setups Trek used to get that 183 gram number are: 2018 Émonda with 28mm-deep Bontrager XXX 2 wheels, and Bontrager XXX Bar/Stem Combo compared to the 2021 Émonda with 37mm deep Bontrager Aeolus RSL 37 Wheels and Bontrager Aeolus RSL Bar/Stem Combo.

trek emonda slr 9 etap

Another drag saving upgrade: the housing, hoses and wires for the controls are almost fully inside the frame. They dive into the frame at the head tube passing through the upper headset bearing. The front brake hose runs into the fork steerer and down the left leg before popping out just above the brake caliper. The fork steerer’s flattened sides provide room for the rear brake hose and derailleur control lines to travel down and into the frame. Though it has flattened sides, the fork steerer is still compatible with standard 1 1/8” stems.

The overall drag reduction results in a bike that is 18 seconds per hour faster when climbing an 8.1 percent grade (the average grade of Alpe d’Huez ), and 60 seconds per hour faster on flat roads than the previous Émonda. Trek also claims the new Émonda is 13 seconds per hour faster than a Specialized Tarmac when climbing an 8.1 percent grade (all assuming the rider maintains a constant 350 watts).

Eight Point One Percent

With three qualities—aero, stiffness, weight—that work in opposition to each other, how do you decide how much to optimize one quality when you know it will negatively affect the other two? How aero is aero enough? At what point is improved aerodynamics offset by the weight added to get there?

The team behind the Émonda used a legendary climb to help them decide: Alpe d’Huez. “It represents an extreme example of what most people see on a regular basis when they’re doing a big climbing ride,” said Roessingh, “It’s around an 8 percent grade, and it’s about an hour-long climb for the pros—amateurs might go a little slower. It gives us a good understanding of what the benefit of a drag savings is relative to a weight savings.”

trek emonda slr 9 etap

By optimizing the weight and aerodynamic balance around this climb, Roessingh claims the Émonda is faster on Alpe d’Huez and also faster on everything shallower than the famous climb, “which is the vast majority of the environments that most riders are going to ride in, including the team,” said Roessingh. “So if we can say it’s faster up Alpe d’Huez, it’s going to be significantly faster everywhere because the flatter it is, the more aerodynamics benefit you.”

Computer-Aided Optimization

Achieving the weight to the aerodynamic balance of the new Émonda required careful design of each tube shape. Aiding the Émonda’s team was supercomputing horsepower. The abridged and simplified version of the process goes like this: into the computer was fed a rough draft of the shape based on Trek’s aerodynamic experience and other information like UCI regulations. The program then varies the tube’s parameters within a predefined range and spit back several iterations of the shape, each with a different weight to aerodynamic balance. The Émonda’s team evaluated the alternatives and picked the one most suited to its location in the frame and best able to help the frame achieve its overarching goal.

Roessingh says that Trek cannot afford to buy the computing hardware necessary to run the CFD and FEA optimizations (in a timely manner) that helped shape the new Émonda’s tubes. The processing happens in the cloud where Trek rents time on Google, Microsoft, or Amazon’s supercomputers. It’s more affordable than buying a supercomputer. Even so, it is not cheap, “Cloud computing is becoming a relatively significant budget line item for us because we’re doing so many of these optimizations in CFD and FEA and all that processing happens in the cloud.”

tube shape comparison of the generation two and three emonda

The new Émonda’s fork legs, head tube, down tube, seat tube, and seat stays all use a variation of a truncated airfoil. The top tube and chainstays, which have virtually no effect on drag, are optimized almost entirely for stiffness to weight.

In Trek’s line, the new Émonda’s aerodynamic performance is equal to the third generation Domane ; the Madone is still significantly more aero. But while the more aerodynamic Madone is faster in flatter terrain, once the climb hits about 5.5 percent, the lighter Émonda becomes the faster bike. And for many of the Trek-Segafredo team riders—and many amateurs—that means the Émonda is fastest when it matters most: the hardest part of a race or ride, which is almost always on a steep climb.

trek emonda slr 9 etap

OCLV 800 Carbon

Getting the new Émonda SLR to be as light as it is while adding aerodynamic shaping would not be possible without employing a new carbon-fiber composite, said Roessingh. The new OCLV 800 composite is 30 percent stronger than Trek’s previous top-of-the-line composite (OCLV 700). Because it is stronger, they can use less: By using OCLV 800, Trek’s team was able to make the Émonda SLR frame 60 grams lighter than if they used OCLV 700.

trek emonda sl 5

The Émonda SLR is very cool, but it’s also very expensive (bike prices start at $6,699). For the 99 percenters, there’s the Émonda SL (models start at $2,699).

The SL uses OCLV 500 composite, and the frame is quite a bit heavier than the SLR’s. The SL’s frame comes in at 1,142 grams, with a 380-gram fork (SLR fork weight: 365 grams).

But material (and weight) are the only difference between the SL and SLR.

Aeolus Bar Stem

While a ton of work made the Émonda’s frame tubes faster, a big chunk of the new bike’s drag savings comes from the one-piece Aeolus bar stem. It alone is responsible for 70 grams of the Émonda’s 183-gram drag reduction. This means that if a traditional stem and round bar are installed on the new Émonda, its drag advantage over the previous-generation bike drops to 113 grams. And it means that you can make any bike with a round bar and traditional stem significantly more aerodynamic by merely installing the Aeolus. Retail price is $650.

trek emonda slr 9 etap

The integrated Aeolus is made of carbon-fiber composite, of course, with a claimed weight of 297 grams (42x120). It’s offered in 14 length and width combinations, from 44x120 to 38x80. Hoses, housing, and wires run externally for easier service and repairs, but in a groove that keeps them out of the wind. A bolt-on plate keeps the control lines tucked and organized where they turn off the bar tops to run in line with the stem.

The Aeolus employs a mount that works with Bontrager’s line of Blendr accessories for mounting computers and lights.

Aeolus 37 Wheels

Another new Bontrager product rolling out with the Émonda is the Aeolus 37 wheelset. It comes in two models: the Aeolus RSL 37 (1,325 grams/pair, $2,400) and the Aeolus Pro 37 (1,505 grams/pair, $1,300).

trek emonda slr 9 etap

The RSL 37 is claimed to be lighter than Zipp’s 32mm-deep 202, yet more aerodynamic and more stable than Zipp’s 45mm-deep 303. Both wheels are disc brake only (only Center Lock interface), tubeless compatible, use DT-Swiss internals, have no rider weight limit, and come with a lifetime warranty.

Surprisingly Rider Friendly

Though the new Émonda is clean and integrated looking and uses high-performance standards, it is also remarkably rider-friendly. Cables, hoses, and housing run externally on the one-piece Aeolus bar/stem for easier repair and service (with one exception: wiring for a Shimano Di2 or Campagnolo EPS bar-end junction box runs partially inside the bar). If you prefer a more traditional cockpit, it can be run with a standard bar and stem with 1⅛-inch steerer clamp.

The bottom bracket uses the threaded T47 standard , which is compatible with almost all common crank-axle standards.

trek emonda slr 9 etap

Front and rear thru-axles are standard 12x100 and 12x142mm, and the wheels employ a standard dish. The standard flat mounts for the brake calipers are compatible with 140, 160, or 180mm rotors.

Tire clearance is officially 28mm, but that’s with a ton of extra space. I fit 32mm tires in the Émonda with ease.

And though all models do use a seat mast, it’s a no-cut variety with lots of adjustment range.

H1.5 Geometry

Trek did offer its top-of-the-line race bikes in the aggressive H1 geometry for riders seeking an ultra-long and low geometry, or H2 which was an endurance fit. The new Émonda is offered only in H1.5, which splits the difference between H1 and H2. The result is pretty typical dimensions for a modern race bike—a 54cm Émonda H1’s geometry is remarkably similar to a 54cm Specialized Tarmac.

There are eight sizes starting at 47cm and topping out at 62cm.

emonda sl 7 etap

There are 10 models of the new Émonda. SL models start at $2,699 and are priced up to $5,999. SLR models start at $6,699 and go up to $11,999.

Only SLR models come with the Aeolus integrated bar/stem stock; and only the Émonda SL 7 ($5,499) and up come with the Aeolus 37 wheelset.

The new Émonda is a disc brake-only platform.

Project One

The new Émonda is in Trek’s Project One paint and parts personalization program. If that’s not luxe enough for you, Trek’s Project One Ultimate program allows you to work with a designer to come up with a one-of-a-kind finish, and Trek will source any parts you want for your new bike.

Trek Emonda SLR Disc Project One review

Trek’s lightweight race machine gets even lighter

Ben Healy / Immediate Media

Warren Rossiter

At its best on big climbs, and brilliant at coming back down again

Very understated for a superbike

trek emonda slr project one

Trek’s Émonda was conceived to be the brand’s lightweight race bike. It’s the model that was favoured by Alberto Contador, who rode the rim-braked version at this year’s Vuelta a España.

  • The Trek Émonda is one of our key bikes for 2018. We've collated eleven bikes that we believe you should know about in the coming year. Some are super bikes, while others might display great value for money, but they all have one thing in common — they're all important bikes that show how incredibly varied road and mountain biking is today.
  • Trek Madone 9.0 review
  • Top 5 most interesting road bikes of 2018

The Project One on the roads of Peille

It’s no surprise that a bike with a frame that weighs 644g was Contador's preferred ride for his farewell grand tour, as the race followed a route littered with tough climbs. But the model on test here is the disc-brake version and we all know disc-brake bikes are heavy, right?

Wrong, the Émonda Disc SLR frame shatters that misconception, weighing in at 665g. Add in the thru-axle-equipped, flat-mount disc fork at 350g and you've got a chassis that's just 1,015g. And there aren’t many rim-braked bikes that can match that.

The curves and sculpted surfaces of the previous Émonda have been retained, but the fully built-up SLR Disc's weight of 6.65kg certainly shows that a lot has been going on under the skin, as the complete SLR Disc package is lighter than the previous rim-braked model. Its understated silver-grey paint and predominantly black components add up to a very subtle-looking superbike.

On big ascents and descents, the SLR Disc really shines. Up climbs the low weight of the chassis combined with the light wheelset — Bontrager Aeolus 3 hoops, weighing 668g (f) and 786g (r) — make for a bike that gains altitude fast.

The old Émonda always had handling chops in spades and this new one feels just as planted, which is no surprise as the same geometry has been carried over. Up front, the previous model could feel a little firm and buzzy over rougher surfaces, but the SLR Disc is much improved. A lot of that is down to the switch to 28mm tyres, which are perfectly shaped by the rims' 19.5mm internal width.

When it comes to losing altitude, those big tyres give the SLR Disc bags of grip in fast corners and I appreciate Trek's decision to go with 160mm rotors front and rear to complement the latest Dura-Ace hydraulic brakes. They provide plenty of feel at the lever, making it easy to get just the right amount of brake force.

As the test bike is a Project One machine it came with Trek’s lower and more aggressive H1 fit. Most of Trek’s bikes usually come in H2, which adds a little stack height and reduces the reach by a few millimetres. The position on the bike is lower than I’d usually ride but is one that encourages you to tuck in and push harder to go faster.

Like the front end, the SLR Disc's rear also feels firm. It’s certainly stiff, as no amount of mishandling could get the rear disc to do anything but go about its job. That stiffness does mean things can get choppy through the seat when you're speeding over rutted roads although the Bontrager Montrose saddle is well shaped, and its minimal padding manages to keep you comfortable.

The latest Dura-Ace Di2 impresses and the new hydraulic brakes feel like a big step forward too. I did manage to get the front rotor ticking after some particularly heavy braking at the bottom of a descent in the rain, but after a couple of miles the noise disappeared.

Overall, the Émonda SLR Disc is a wonderful example of a disc-braked race machine. Its understated appearance means this bike looks almost anonymous — its paint job hiding what is a truly special machine. If you’re the sort of rider who wants the very best but doesn’t want to shout about it, the Émonda SLR Disc is a fine choice.

BikeRadar Verdict:  "Wonderful in every respect and the price ensures exclusivity"

  • Highs: Beautifully balanced handling, low, low weight; a technical marvel
  • Lows: It’s hard to wrap your head around a 10-grand-plus price tag
  • Buy if:  You want the lightest disc chassis around and you’ve got deep pockets or a lottery win

With the original Émonda, Trek set out to upset the applecart by making a full-production bike that could beat the most exclusive niche brands at their own lightweight game — the resulting frame weighing 690g. 

  • Trek Madone SLR 9 Disc first ride review
  • I want to build the world’s nicest Trek Emonda ALR

The original was a fine lightweight bike, but its ride was harder than the plush Domane and Trek’s IsoSpeed-equipped aero Madone.

This new generation bike sees improved compliance in the frame and it’s lighter still at just 665g for this disc brake version. When you add in a new disc fork at 350g, the SLR9 Disc is one svelte chassis.

Every size and every configuration of the SLR will be available in both H1 and H2 fit for both disc and rim brake frames. If you favour a longer, lower position go for the H1, while if you’re looking for a more endurance-focussed ride you can opt for the H2 model, which is what I went for in this Project 1 build.

It is constructed from Trek’s 700 series premium-grade OCLV carbon — but this isn’t the same 700 series as before. Trek has altered the grade of the carbon and fibres, changed the lamination and refined production methods.

trek emonda slr project one

I opted for Bontrager Aeolus XXX2 wheels

To get this Project 1 bike as close to that which Trek-Segafredo used at the Tour I chose the latest Bontrager Aeolus XXX2 wheels, but in a more practical tubeless-compatible clincher rather than tubular, and these flyweights really add something to the Trek’s excellent ride quality.

At just 1,380g a pair (630g front and 750g rear) these are seriously light, and it’s a lightness you can feel on the climbs. They are also a very welcome 21mm wide internally, which allows you to exploit the lower rolling resistance and extra comfort and cushioning afforded by the 28mm Bontrager tyres, although I would have liked the bike to come set up tubeless.

The instant pick-up from the Émonda is addictive, and I quickly found myself getting out of the saddle and attacking any slope or gradient, such is the wonderfully responsive ride the SLR provides.

Thankfully it’s no slouch when the road heads down either, with the unmoving quality of the front end allowing for proper point-and-shoot descending where you can rely on the brakes and the large diameter 160mm noise-free rotors.

Ride quality is brilliant, it’s light and agile

To be honest, there is very little to fault on the SLR — the ride quality is brilliant, it’s as light as you’d ever need and it’s as agile as a gymnast. It never failed to put a smile on my face or make me want to be a better rider — it’s very much a bike you want to live up to and not the sort I’d feel comfortable taking out for a lazy Sunday cruise.

The only issue I do have is the price. At £10,160 it’s breathtakingly expensive, even taking into account the fact that this follows three years of carbon fibre development from Trek’s technical team and the excellent Project 1 customer service, which offers you advice, fitting and custom options. It is still £910 more than the similarly sublime S-Works Tarmac, and that has a power meter thrown in.

The SLR9 is very much like the 2018 BMC Team Machine SLR01 Disc . It is without a doubt a five-star performing bike, but it’s tough to give full marks to a bike that’s just so very expensive.

2021 Trek Émonda SLR 9 eTap road bike first ride review – An aerodynamic climber

trek emonda slr project one

Trek’s flagship 2021 Émonda SLR 9 eTap model is the third generation of the American brand’s climbing specialist. With a completely new frame, a new Bontrager cockpit and wheels, the latest model also promises to deliver on flat terrain. Read on to find out whether Trek have mastered the balancing act between aerodynamics and light weight and how it compares to the Madone.

trek emonda slr project one

The Émonda has always been Trek’s quintessential road bike and the lightest model in their portfolio. The Émonda series has always developed in quantum leaps, taking Trek into a new era with every new generation: while the goal of the first generation was to fall below the 5 kg mark, the flagship model of the second generation already came in at just under 6.8 kg, including disc brakes . Trek were yet to include features such as internal cable routing, aerodynamic optimisation or increased tire clearance. That’s all about to change with the brand new, 2021 Émonda SLR 9 eTap, which was developed from the ground up in close cooperation with Trek’s in-house pro racing team. The briefing of Trek-Segafredo was to fill the gap that had opened up between the lightweight Émonda and the aero optimised Madone ! A lightweight, aerodynamic bike that combines the best of both extremes, making it a high-performance all-rounder. While the advantages of aerodynamic bikes are obvious, it was extremely important for the team to meet the UCI weight limit of 6.8 kg. For top-performing athletes in the pro peloton, this is an entirely legitimate and important objective as they’ve already optimised their own weight to the maximum and races are often won or lost depending on the riders’ power to weight ratio.

trek emonda slr project one

The concept of the Trek Émonda frame

The latest generation Émonda is as light as Trek’s current know-how was able to make it while keeping the design aerodynamically optimised. Heavily influencing the bike’s development was the climb to Alpe d’Huez with its 21 hairpin bends, 1,120 meters of altitude over 13.8 kilometres and an average gradient of 8.1%. As you can imagine, weight played a crucial role. If aerodynamics were the only issue, the Émonda would have ended up looking just like the Madone. According to Trek, the latter will still be faster when it comes to wind resistance on flat terrain. However, the size 56 Madone weighs 7.63 kg, considerably more than the size 58 Émonda SLR, which comes in at just 6.86 kg. In contrast to the Madone, the aerodynamic optimisation of the new Émonda didn’t concentrate on the effect of high-speed wind hitting the bike head-on, but rather on the type of turbulent winds and gusts that you’re likely to encounter while climbing alpine passes such as Alpe d ‘Huez. This is referred to as slow or unsteady aerodynamics, which places a higher emphasis on constantly changing wind directions and rider positions at slow to medium speeds. Of course, the tube shapes and aerodynamic details developed in this way should also offer advantages over traditional round tube designs at high speeds, though not quite at the same level as a pure-bred aero bike such as the Madone. If you compare the difference in cross-sections of the tubes between the 2018 Émonda and the latest generation model, you can clearly see how aerodynamic optimisation affects the design of the bike.

trek emonda slr project one

In order to achieve the optimal balance between aerodynamics and weight, Trek rely on a new carbon technology called OCLV 800. Developing this new proprietary composite was a necessary step in achieving their goal since aerodynamically shaped tubes are typically heavier and less stiff than round tubes. Previously, OCLV 700 was Trek’s best performing carbon composite. According to Trek, when comparing OCLV 700 and 800, they were able to make the frame 60 g lighter, all else being equal. Considering the raw frame weight of 698 g for the SLR model (incl. derailleur hanger), that’s a saving of close to 10%. The new wonder material is reserved exclusively for the SLR models while the Émonda SL range will rely on Trek’s OCLV 500 grade composite. This results in almost double the raw frame weight, bringing it up to 1,140 g (incl. derailleur hanger). Like all of Trek’s road bikes, the new Émonda is approved for a rider weight of up to 125 kg. Trek also approve the use of the Émonda on a home trainer. Unfortunately, they couldn’t tell us whether the bike’s weight and aerodynamic optimisation would also have a positive effect on your results in a race on Zwift. 😉

trek emonda slr project one

The latest design of the Émonda is optimised for 25 mm wide tires with a maximum clearance of up to 700 x 28C. This includes the prescribed 4 mm of clearance per side plus an additional 2 mm tolerance. In practice, this means that you should be able to fit slightly wider tires, depending on the rim and tire combination. For the bottom bracket, Trek rely the T47 standard, which we first saw on Trek’s new Crockett cyclocross bike and is likely to feature on all future models. Besides being compatible with 24 and 30 mm axles, Trek see further advantages in the oversized bottom bracket housing as it provides added torsional rigidity. The frame set doesn’t only eschew with mounting points for mudguards but also Trek’s proprietary IsoSpeed system, as featured on the Madone and Trek Domane to much acclaim for the comfort that it adds. Even the dropped chainstays as you’ll often see on modern road bikes have had to give way to weight optimisation and maximum performance. Similar to the GIANT TCR Advanced SL 0 Disc or the OPEN MIN.D . Trek have integrated the seat post and seat cap, though with a comparatively generous adjustment range of 60 mm. Cable routing is internal throughout. The Émonda is compatible with all current electronic and mechanical groupsets as well as two-by drivetrains with a maximum chainring size of 53/39 t and one-by drivetrains with a maximum chainring of 50 t. It is disc brake specific only, whereby customers can choose between 140 or 160 mm rotors on the rear and the front is exclusively compatible with 160 mm rotors. Other features rounding off the frameset include the 100×12 mm thru-axle standard up front and 142×12 mm at the rear as well as the option of integrating Bontrager’s DuoTrap sensor into the chainstay.

However, Trek didn’t focus solely on optimising the frame but rather considered the bike as a whole as they developed the new Émonda. They invested heavily in their cooperation with the in-house brand Bontrager to develop a coherent overall concept, especially with regards to the cockpit and wheels.

Bontrager’s Aeolus RSL one-piece cockpit

The one-piece Bontrager Aeolus RSL cockpit made of OCLV carbon was designed specifically for the Émonda SLR and is reserved exclusively for the flagship models, while the SL models have to make do with a conventional stem and handlebar. We were particularly impressed with the way the included Blendr bracket for your GPS device and light attaches seamlessly to the handlebar. Even the cable routing is neat. Instead of routing the cables through the handlebar, they are guided along a channel in the bottom of the bar and stem and then enter the frame via a specially designed spacer, as on the ROSE REVEAL . This makes maintenance and replacements a whole lot easier. The Aeolus RSL cockpit is optimised for eTap (AXS) and Di2 groupsets and relies on the conventional 1 ⅛” steerer tube diameter, making it cross-compatible with other bikes. It’s equally compatible with mechanical shifters. However, the housing of your shifter cable could protrude slightly from the channel for the cables. The cockpit comes with a stem angle of -7°, a reach of 100 mm and a drop of 124 mm. You’ll be able to use conventional spacers on either side of the stem in order to set your desired cockpit height without having to shorten the steerer tube. On top of that, the cockpit is claimed to be 7 watts more efficient than its predecessor and is approx. 160 g lighter than the two-piece, integrated cockpit featured on the Trek Madone. See the table below for the available cockpit configurations (options vary depending on the market).

New Bontrager Aeolus wheels on the 2021 Trek Émonda

In addition to the brand new cockpit, Trek present a new range of Aeolus wheels. The carbon wheels are available in three versions: RSL, Pro and Elite. All models are designed for clincher tires, tubeless-ready and exclusively for disc brakes with 24 spoke holes, centerlock rotor mounts, 12 mm thru-axles front and rear and no weight limit. The freehubs are compatible with Shimano 10/11-speed and SRAM 10/11-speed cassettes across the range, whereby 12-speed freehubs will be sold separately. All of Bontrager’s products come with the so-called Unconditional Bontrager Guarantee . See the table below for all the details at a glance.

trek emonda slr project one

The concept behind the Aeolus RSL 37 TLR disc wheels as featured on our test bike is en par with that of the Émonda: lightweight with good aerodynamic performance.

Project One for the Émonda

Project One has long been the go-to for all Trek enthusiasts who want something a little more special than the standard paint jobs and spec, never failing to deliver some truly jaw-dropping creations! Included are three new ICON paint jobs, Amplified Alchemy, Holographic Diamond, and Gold Flake (including real 24k gold), as well as the new KOM signature series. Besides the pre-configured ICON paint jobs, Project One allows customers to choose any colour combination from 49 different shades. In terms of componentry, you can take your pick of any component that Trek’s portfolio offers. If that’s not enough, we recommend taking a closer look at Project One Ultimate. Here, one of Trek’s own designers will help you realise your dream build with a professional custom paint job and every conceivable componentry spec. Price? Available on request.

Trek Émonda SLR 9 eTap 2021 – geometry and spec

Unlike the predecessor, Trek have done away with the two different geometry options, H1 (aggressive sitting position) and H2 (more relaxed sitting position), designing the new Émonda around H1.5 geometry. This should offer a good balance between aggressiveness and everyday suitability. Trek also refrain from gender-specific models, offering all frame sizes for both women and men. Instead, the stem, crank and handlebar are adjusted to suit smaller riders. In terms of fit and geometry, the Émonda is heavily based on the Madone aero bike.

trek emonda slr project one

Depending on the frame size, the integrated seat post can be combined with two seat caps of different lengths. For sizes 47 to 54, you get a 135 mm long cap. The frame sizes 56 to 62 come with a 175 mm cap. Both caps are available with 5 or 20 mm offset, to allow you to find the optimal fit. The adjustment range of the seat post cap is 60 mm for both variants.

Trek Émonda first ride review

On our first ride, the Émonda delivered a convincing performance with extremely light-footed acceleration. No matter whether you’re exiting a corner, from a standstill or on an incline: the slightest bit of pressure on the pedals is immediately converted into forward propulsion. The surprising thing is not just how fast the Trek accelerates in every situation, but how efficiently it is able to maintain its speed on flat terrain or on ascents with a gradient of 1-2%. Speed all-rounder? Check!

trek emonda slr project one

The Trek doesn’t hide its competitive genes with regards to handling either, responding to the rider’s input with extreme precision. For experienced pilots, this results in handling that allows you to navigate tight corners even at high speeds. However, this also means that beginners should approach the Trek’s direct and precise handling with caution. It’s like a road-legal Formula 1 car and it needs to be handled accordingly. However, all this doesn’t mean that it’s difficult to keep the Trek going in a straight line. The geometry allows you to hold a straight line without any feeling nervousness or like you’ll get a speed wobble, successfully combining agility and composure.

trek emonda slr project one

As with the handling, you have to remind yourself of the type of bike you’re dealing with when considering comfort. The vertical compliance of the frameset is limited due to its aggressive nature, offering limited comfort on extended rides. The Émonda is not uncomfortable per se since it offers a pleasant degree of vibration damping. However, bigger bumps are passed on to the rider unfiltered. The more competitive riders amongst us will enjoy the feedback that you get from the ground, while those who prefer just cruising will miss the IsoSpeed damping system. Just like handling and comfort, the riding position screams pro-peloton and is aggressively stretched. Due to the combination of an integrated seat post and seat cap, it is important to go for a bike fitting before deciding which size to buy and make sure that you’ll be able to get comfortable. Although the adjustment range is comparatively big, riders with long legs and a short torso might reach the limits of what’s feasible due to the bike’s design.

How does the Émonda compare to the Madone

Èmonda or Madone? This is a question that not only the professionals will have to ask themselves in future races. As expected, the Émonda clearly has the edge in mountainous terrain, when sprinting up steep inclines and winding up endless climbs. Even on the descents, the razor-sharp handling and fast acceleration out of the corners put it far ahead of the Madone. On flat terrain, the Èmonda comes in at a very close second to the Madone as it is unaffected by changing wind conditions and crosswinds, delivering an equally convincing performance here. Even if it is slightly “slower” than the more aerodynamic Madone when studied in a laboratory, it has some clear advantages over the Madone in certain scenarios.

trek emonda slr project one

The Madone is perfectly equipped for everything from hilly to flat terrain. If you’re not racing against the clock on the climbs but simply trying to defeat your inner bastard, you can also tackle those mountain passes on the Madone. It is lightning-fast on flat terrain, but its oversized tube shapes and deep rims also make it very sensitive to crosswinds. In terms of comfort, the Madone is clearly superior: the IsoSpeed damping system doesn’t affect efficiency while taking the horror out of bad roads and is a huge plus on long rides. It allows you to go on long rides in a relaxed fashion without having to make an appointment with the physiotherapist when you get home.

Our conclusion on the 2021 Trek Émonda SLR 9 eTap

Trek’s 2021 Èmonda SLR 9 eTap is a speed-seeking all-rounder with super quick acceleration and razor-sharp handling in every situation. Anyone looking for a bike to take to the races or with a need for speed on their flat-out after-work ride will find it here. If you enjoy long all-day rides, you’ll find more versatile alternatives in the Madone or the Domane, which are much more comfortable. The Émonda was built with the aim of conquering Alp d’Huez’s 21 hairpin bends as quickly as possible and that’s exactly what it is ready for!

Trek Project One Émonda SLR

Rim brakes aren't dead! This lightweight climber is a tour de force of modern carbon tech, but the super-sleek lines of the Émonda frame are matched with the classic simplicity of rim brakes and mechanical shifting.

This is a performance bike that you can fling up hills with pleasure, and it's also a real treat for the connoisseur of fine engineering and high-end componentry.

Trek's lightest OCLV 700 carbon frameset sits at the heart of the bike, driven by the latest iteration of Shimano's classic Dura-Ace mechanical gruppo.

As a custom Project One build this bike has the pick of Trek's parts cabinet, and so there's a full complement of Bontrager carbon components to round things out. The Aeolus XXX carbon wheels spin up fast, and Bontrager's own direct mount brake calipers ensure you can come to a stop just as quickly and efficiently (or simply scrub off speed on those alpine descents).

The Carbon XXX saddle prioritises lightness over all else, but the beauty of a Bespoke bike is that it's fully fitted to the individual rider, right down to saddle shape and size, so a minimalist perch doesn't have to mean unnecessary discomfort.

The integrated bar and stem bring further weight savings with added stiffness, for maximum control and efficiency, and feature clever touches like hidden mounts for lights and computer.

All-new Trek Emonda ALR takes lightweight frame tech to alloy models

2016 Trek Emonda ALR 6 lightweight alloy race road bike with Ultegra

When Trek announced their Emonda carbon road bike line , they backed up their “world’s lightest” claims with an impressive frame and fork and an even more impressive 10.25lb (4.6kg) complete bike. Now, they’re adding an alloy Emonda ALR option that’s also lightweight yet far more affordable.

To earn the Emonda badge, the frame uses their top-level 300-series Alpha Aluminum that’s been hydroformed into size specific tubes, then welded together using a no-see technique that produces smooth joints that use less material to save weight.

The process is called Invisible Weld Technology, which they say produces stronger, stiffer welds despite using less material. Video, pics and more details below…

2016 Trek Emonda ALR 6 lightweight alloy race road bike with Ultegra

Trek told us the unpainted frame is 1050g (56), and a painted fork is 358g w/240mm steerer.

Like the ultralight Emonda carbon models, the ALR uses their H2 race geometry, E2 tapered headtube (standard 1-1/8″ to 1-1/2″) and wide Pressfit BB 86.5, meaning this bike is made to go fast. Other frame details include a braze-on front derailleur mount (no need to add a clamp if you’re getting the frameset) and external cable routing.

2016 Trek Emonda ALR 6 lightweight alloy race road bike with Ultegra

We’ve requested a more technical description of the welding process (update as we get it), but the frame is only part of the story. The complete bikes come equipped with built-in extras like the a Blendr stem with integrated light/computer mount, and it has Duotrap S compatibility (their ANT+/Bluetooth 4.0 speed/cadence sensor, sold separately for about $60).

You also get a complete group, so the Emonda ALR 6 with Ultregra gets a full Ultegra group from chain to brakes to cassette and everything else. There are no mis-matched parts or down spec’d bits to cut costs. A full carbon fiber tapered fork completes the package.

2016 Trek Emonda ALR 6 lightweight alloy race road bike with Ultegra

The Emonda ALR will initially come in two builds, the “6” with full Ultegra, Bontrager Race tubeless ready wheels with R2 tires, and a Bontrager cockpit with alloy short reach/drop bar and carbon seatpost for $2,249.99. Our local Trek Bike Store says complete bike weight is claimed at 17.25lb (7.82kg).

2016-Trek-Emonda-ALR-alloy-lightweight-race-road-bike-6

The Emonda ALR 5 drops down to a full Shimano 105 group with non-series Bontrager tubeless ready alloy wheels, R1 tires and a full alloy Bontrager cockpit for $1,759.99. Claimed weight is 18.77lb (8.51kg), colors will be the gloss black/hi-viz yellow and blue shown here, plus a racing red coming soon.

2016 Trek Emonda ALR lightweight alloy race road bike frameset with carbon fiber fork

The frameset shares the same paint scheme as the “6” and comes with an FSA sealed cartridge bearing headset for $989.99. The frames have a lifetime warranty carrying a 275lb rider weight limit.

Just for fun, here’s the companion lifestyle video.

All three models shown here are available now and should hit stores soon. Our sources tell us there’ll also be an Emonda ALR 5 with Tiagra, an ALR 8 with Dura-Ace mechanical and ALR 9 with Dura-Ace Di2 coming soon. That last model suggests they’ll have an electronic-only frame, too, since these first models only have external cable routing. At the very top, in terms of light weight anyway, will be the ALR 10 with a full SRAM Red group.

The invisible welding looks a lot like what pretty much every other company calls smooth welding. And has been using for years. You weld the tube normally then go back over it without filler material and “reweld” it. The process smooths out the weld and helps it wet out. REVOLUTIONARY TREK!!!

Robert W

Interesting that they are using hydroformed tubes but didn’t choose the aero tube shapes of the Madone design.

ElPablo

@Robert W – my sources say the Madone is on the way out. & if the story is about weight vs. areo it would make sense to mimick the emonda shapes. Also, the 2 series aluminum frames are already Madone-esqe.

JBikes

I always find it funny that companies state how they’ve extensively optimized tube shapes for their flagship carbon fiber bikes, but then seemingly can successfully apply those shapes to materials with very different properties. There is a little marketing lie in their somewhere.

Anyway. Glad to see these Al bikes. CF has been getting too pricey fort me.

Ck

I like how they quote an unpainted frame weight, then only offer it in a painted variety. But lets also make sure we pair that unpainted weight with a painted fork weight.

Durianrider

Looks legit. Seeing they are coming out of the Giant factory why not put on the overdrive 2 fork and stem and really take it next level?

Greg

Aluminum, how quaint.

Roy

Why not sell them unpainted if they weight them unpainted? JBikes if I read you right what your saying is the shapes have far mo9re to do with design than engineering.all thes tube shapes are probaly coming from kitchen appliance design firm and they bs riders who rarely go over 20mph that aero is worth buying a new bike for

Colin M

That Bontrager cycling kit is pretty damn nice. “Understated” as the hipsters like to say.

Colin

How about US made aluminum, with giant tubes, some internal routing, and some really funky paint jobs. Oh wait…

JB4605

Hasn”t specialized already been doing this for like 3 years now? And better welded joints? Revolutionary-nothing is more like it, just another slightly modified copy frame.

Roy – no I was just commenting on the fact it’s stated how non aero tube shapes are optimized for carbon fiber for whatever properties (stiffness, weight, ride) but then a vastly different material can achieve the same with the same tube shapes? I’m sure they vary material thickness and such, but given the vast difference in CF and Al, I’d think tube shapes would vary more between the two materials, unless the CF and Al frames ride completely different.

Andrew

Jesus, tough crowd. Lightweight aluminum, full component groups and small price tags… Sounds good to me.

MikeC

Full Ultegra! Well… except the wheels. Of which, the Bontrager Race spec is a few notches below Ultegra…

djbutcher13

y’all are haters. you can pick on the marketing and on random bits and pieces but in the end this is the bike you’re going to start seeing at all the local crits and races. So they have weird marketing, worry about the bike and what it can do for you.

JC

Aluminum is the new carbon.

josh

Yeah a bunch of haters here, Go buy a Specialized because they are not owned by the big man, Oh wait, Specialized is own by a conglomerate, and Trek is family owned. Seems like most people don’t understand the definition of “the man” Don’t hate on them just because you don’t like it that more people ride Trek than any other brand in the US.

Ronin

@Durianrider, you’re killing me! Lol

Ventruck

When you think about it, it’s a bike people actually look for: Workhorse, and the no-nonsense but clean aesthetic.

Considering the Propel SLR might not come stateside, as well as the update TCR SLR before it, it’s nice to have another potential alloy option on the market that isn’t an Allez or CAAD.

Andy

I really like where Trek is going with their new paint schemes. Very minimal branding and no stupid racing stripes and decals. Keep it premium!

JasonK

Jbikes: I understand why you’re asking about why two frames with different materials have the same tube shapes, but in fact they probably should have the same shapes.

In the bike industry (and many others), it’s common practice to design using isotropic material properties (e.g., with aluminum) for a first pass. The resulting stiffness (quantified through FEA) ensures you’re getting the most sectional modulus you can out of a given tube shape. Only then do you go back and design a laminate schedule with anisotropic materials (e.g., carbon fiber).

This allows the designer to clearly separate the modulus (stiffness) due to tube shape and the modulus due to the laminate schedule. That way, each can be optimized as a discrete step.

Except for a few corner cases, optimal frame tube shape is material-independent. Surprising but true!

Matt

Looks like a great bike at a good price. I love nice aluminum race bikes. But why no H1 geometry option? It irks me that companies (not just Trek) spec the really race oriented stuff at the high-end of the price scale. I know a short head tube doesn’t work for everyone but why not give us the option? What does the size of your wallet have to do with your flexibility?

Neilthemeal

I’m wondering if some of the frames are anodized, so unpainted weight would be pretty relevant.

JasonK – thanks! Great info. Never really thought of it that way but it makes sense.

jaxgtr

I like the emonda and the CrossRip frame for my commuter. I would seriously consider if I was in the market and carbon was not an option.

Craig

Man that’s a light frame. Nice to see they are using full groupset specs.

I wonder if the welding is a form of aluminium brazing using a lower melting temperature brazing rod. I think this is what Shimano do with the external reinforcing tabs on the aluminium rims. This is supposed to be lower strength than welding but coming up with some newer technology is not beyond Trek’s resources. Or maybe they have come up with a way to modify the pulse action of a TIG welder with a certain filler wire application. Either way, the old double pass method for aluminium is old hat now.

Most companies claim unpainted frame weights. Use this general guide: If a company says “…painted frame weight is…” then it’s including paint. If they don’t specifically say painted then you can guarantee it’s an unpainted frame weight.

The only reason I wouldn’t buy one of these is the head tube is too tall…

BeeJay

I applaud Trek for coming out with a ‘light’ and ‘inexpensive’ aluminum frameset but I’m still not sold on the H2 geometry.

Sincerely, Worlds longest head tube.

Patrick

I like the option of a high end aluminum frame as well….but this one misses the mark for me because trek refuses to make any bike with its “racer” H1 geometry that doesn’t cost at least 4,500 for a frameset. If they only would make H1 options of their emonda sl frame or this new all I’d buy one in a second. Trek already makes a million bike models….why not better fit options? Ever since they did away with the 6 series madone the options for the budget conscious racer have gone to zero. Bleh. And more seatmast length options trek!

Adam

Nearly the same weight as a Cannondale frame that was first manufactured out of the same material about 6 years ago

Gummee!

I think this will make a GREAT race frame.

Certainly beats trying to replace a carbon frame someone broke for you in that ‘last corner of the criterium’ crash.

If I see one more I’m-so-flexible-I-can-stick-my-head-up-my-ass comment about the lack of H1 geometry, I might give up trolling comments on bike rumor all together. Seriously, 5 years at a Trek dealer and we sold maybe 3 H1 bikes (all as special order). We ordered dozens more project 1 bikes in the ‘normal’ H2. Working now at a Cervelo dealer I have very few people balk at the head tube height, and MOST are running a positive angle on the stem anyways. At 6’3″ I run 14cm of bar drop. I have had zero issue getting a proper fit on stock bikes, including Trek. Currently on the newly updated (i.e. market norm) stack of the 2015 Cervelo S5 I still have 15mm of spacers under my stem. If H2 geo just doesn’t do it for you, grab a Cannonade with a low profile headset cap and go ride. They are making a bike for the largest market, obviously the budget racers this bike is designed for are too busy riding their bikes to complain on Bike Rumor…..

AJ

Looks like a great bike for the money and your avg rider. Nothing wrong with that. Kudos too for specing a complete group build, awesome!

mark

Waiting for my ALR 5 to arrive!! Last bike I bought was in 1986, a Myata One Ten. Hopefully this one will last another 29 years.

mike

uhhh… the allez actually looks good

http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bikes/road/allez/allez-comp-race

the only thing actually missing from these frames are some colorway options like the tarmacs

internet stoke

i had a domane and the headtube was too tall.

i might get one of these. its pretty affordable all things considered.

Psi Squared

There doesn’t seem too much, if anything at all, to complain about here. The Emonda ALR frame MSRP is right in line with a CAAD10 frame MSRP ($10 cheaper actually). It looks good, and it’s certainly not a heavyweight bike. If it rides as good as it looks, it will be a great deal.

pilf

@MikeC – Are you kidding? I haven’t seen anyone refer to a full groupset as including the wheel since like 1999. Some people are just desperate to find something to bitch about. The Bontrager Race wheels are great. They only weigh 200g more than the Ultegras, and unlike every Shimano wheel, they are specced completely with off-the-shelf parts that are easily purchasable in any bike shop.

@Adam – Yes, because Cannondale were the first company with an aluminum racing bike. You forget the Trek, via Klein, were making awesome lightweight aluminum race bikes when Cannondale was still welding together soda cans.

@H1 Lovers – You’re all on crack. A quarter of the Trek pros don’t even ride the H1, and I promise you that you are not that fast. I can also tick off a list of local heroes, Cat 1 and PRO dudes, who get by just fine on the H2, usually preferring it to the H1.

@Psi – And the Trek is clearly much better specced than the Cannondale, with an Ultegra crank and Bontrager Race wheels, not to mention a cockpit that won’t require immediate replacement.

Jdog

Wait to you see the next gen cannondale frame before you jump on this..

badbikemechanic

I am happy this exists. Buyers beware if you crash this thing it’s probably going to dent up like tinfoil.

@badbikemechanic – What makes you say that? There is a generation of high end aluminum out there that holds up just fine to the rigors of daily life. I personally have an aluminum Allez that I regularly leave locked up outside of bars, the grocery store, as well as race, and it hasn’t even scratched the anodized finish yet.

As always, opinions abound….and everyone is “right.” The H1 vs. H2 debate is clearly a hotter topic than I thought. What it boils down to though is “choice.”

Trek offers the option, meaning there are people that prefer it. I rode a 60 cm H1 Madone 6 series last year, and absolutely loved it. Sadly it was a team bike and I had to give it back at the end of the year. In looking for a replacement I want a bike with similar geometry, but don’t want to spend 4,500 to have the OPTION to get the geometry I like. The head tube on the H1 is 18 cm…compared with 21 cm on the H2. That is a LARGE difference. I don’t think anyone is right or wrong to ride whatever geometry they like. All I’m saying is that for me…the H1 geometry is perfect, and I don’t need to run a -17 stem to get my preferred position of the bike. Being a pro, being fast or slow, is irrelevant. I would just like to see the option available at a reasonable price point.

Tom

These bikes are epic. And yes, they blow the competition out of the water.

dG

About time Trek offers something for the Joe-Racers out there. Yes, carbon is super nice but you guess what: so is aluminum. I have a locally-made Aluminum bike and it rides *amazing*. So did my old Caad7 and I bet Specialized’s aluminum bike is also fantastic. We need more people in the sport, and to do that we need a much lower entry-level bar. if for $2,200 you get a nice Al Trek with good geometry, good wheels (i own the bontis tlr and they’re indestructible and readily serviceable), good parts and cockpit that are either race-ready or hammer-ready, then god bless Trek. For the record i own a cannondale six and it’s a phenomenal bike. but my aluminum rig is my favorite. way to go, Trek – kudos indeed.

SoClose

Arguing that “some pros ride H2, therefore nobody needs H1” is well, just a poor excuse for an argument. An H1 aluminum Emonda would be a hit, and I would purchase one as soon as it were available. I’ve owned and ridden both H1/H2 models, and greatly prefer the H1. As an aside, direct mount breaks on this beast would be the icing on the cake. Think about it Trek.

zanetti

This bike compared with the new caad 12 is nothing …

Eric Hansen

I’ve got a current model year Allez smartweld frame built up with full 105 and tubeless Shimano wheels. I certainly didn’t do it for $1760 retail, but then some parts on my bike (bars, saddle, tires) are from a very much higher trim level. I’ve also got all the accessories (cages, tools, &c) in my price, and I was unable to use the economy of scale a manufacturer can.

ANYWAY. The ride quality of my Allez is nothing short of amazing considering. It is *as smooth* as my steel 3-speed with 38mm tires over brick roads. I have no problems riding the Allez a hundred miles, though I run out of water. The Allez smartweld is making me completely re-think aluminum as a frame material, especially for amateur racer types.

These Treks seem to DIRECTLY compete with the Allez smartweld introduced last year, which is great, since it engenders competitive designs. When you get an Allez Comp (with 105), you pay less, but you miss out on the excellent 5800 brakes and crankset, and get bog standard training wheels. Moving up to an Allez Expert (with Ultegra), gets you a full groupset with carbon SL-K crank and ‘Fulcrum’ wheels at a competitive price.

I’d love to ride these Treks back to back with my Allez.

JoeD

I am happy to see Trek jump into the “high end” aluminum market. I have owned & loved several iterations of CAAD’s. I have also read good things about Specialized redesigned Allez frames. I am now hearing of a redesigned CAAD12(?) to be released later this Summer…(anyone else hearing any details?) I would have liked to have seen a disc version from Trek… (Spec as well.) I believe that road disc offerings from every manufacturer will increase exponentially once the pro’s are riding them. I wanted my next road bike purchase to have discs so that I can look for second set of wheels that will be future proof…(thru-axles coming next?) I had my eye this year’s CAAD10 Rival disc, hoping the boys at Cannondale offer an Ultegra disc spec on the CAAD12 later this year. 🙂

sfields

Just ordered my alr 6 today! I work at a trek dealer, and I have to say H2 is usually great for 99% of our customers, and they usually have the stem flipped up. For the 1% of people that actually want that huge bar drop, you can always size down and make it look super pro with a longer stem! Nothing wrong with that!

"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."

No image available

"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."

There are more than 20 towns in America called Moscow. Why?

The mystery of the Moscows of America also intrigued Erjan Aisabay, who set out to visit all of them and write a book about his experience. Aisabay, who was born in Kazakhstan but attended college in the original Moscow, launched his project hoping that America’s shared love of Russia’s capital city might help bring the two countries together.

But as Aisabay drove from state to state, his dream of finding a Russian connection dwindled. And some of America’s Muscovites turned out to be less than supportive. Like in Moscow, Texas, where his attempt to strike up a conversation didn’t turn out as planned.

“I say, ‘Hi my name is so and so, you know I’m writing a book about Moscows’ and then you know she looks at me like completely mistrust and she’s like ‘You should leave.’ … And I saw something that looked like a gun. … This was my last Moscow and I’m like, ‘I don’t want to die in my last Moscow!’”
