The Trek Émonda ALR range was designed with many of the same features as the carbon Émonda range including the same racing geometry that provides fantastic handling as well as reliable ride quality. The Émonda is designed to be lightweight with a frame built from Trek's Ultralight 300 series alpha aluminium that is fast and durable thanks to Trek's lifetime warranty. Also featured is Trek's invisible weld technology which alongside internal cable routing helps to keep the bike looking sleek and professional. Shimano's hydraulic disc groupset offers enhanced braking power in all conditions and on all surfaces as well as offering an aerodynamic gain all for a small weight addition. To finish a complete Tiagra, 10-speed, groupset provides you with enough gears for you to roll up the hills and race down them whilst remaining durable and reliable to ride the whole year round.
It's right for you if...
You're a value-minded rider looking for a lightweight race bike with the added versatility and performance of disc brakes. You expect a lot of performance for your money and want a quality ride you won't immediately outgrow.
The tech you get
A lightweight 300 Series Alpha Aluminium frame with shaped tubes and Invisible Weld Technology for the looks and handling of a far more expensive carbon bike, a full Shimano Tiagra groupset with 20 speeds, a carbon fork and powerful flat-mount hydraulic disc brakes.
The final word
Émonda ALR 4 Disc is the most affordable road disc model in the line-up, but it handles like a far more expensive bike and has the looks to match. It's an extremely capable racing bike at a great price.
