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 105, 11-speed, groupset which brilliantly blends smoothness, reliability and endurance that doesn't come with a huge weight disadvantage.
