Have you heard the phrase 'A good grade of aluminium is better than a bad grade of carbon'? Well if you have then there is plenty of science to back that up. But in this case, Trek has designed a great level of aluminium and it blows a lot of carbon frames out of the question. Hydroformed 300-Series Alpha Aluminium is one of, if not the best grade of aluminium currently available on the market. Specifically welded to provide maximum strength and boost aerodynamics the ALR 6 comes kitted out with some of the best componentry in the business. Shimano Ultegra 11-Speed technology, aerodynamic Aeolus 5 comp tubeless ready wheelset and a carbon fork provides you with all you need to smash you local race PB's or enjoy your fast-paced sunday group rides.
Race-level parts on the lightest aluminium frame Trek have made. Hydroformed 300 Series Alpha Aluminium tubes, a full Shimano Ultegra 11-speed drivetrain and aero Aeolus 5 Comp Tubeless Ready wheels make the Émonda ALR 6 fully capable of battling it out with any carbon road bike on the market today.
A speedy whip with a serious spec, including a high-end drivetrain, aero wheelset and a lightweight aluminium frame. If you're measuring speed per pound, you won't do better than Émonda ALR 6.
The Émonda shares the geometry from the highest-end carbon Émonda racing bikes, and it gives you a ride quality that stands up in every way too far more expensive carbon bikes.

Don't be fooled into thinking Carbon is always the best value for money - it isn't. The Émonda ALR 6 outperforms many carbon bikes at the same price point and comes spec'd with a great level of componentry. 9/10
