Trek's all-new Émonda SL 6 disc road bike has been created to be more aerodynamic, lighter in overall weight and consequently faster than ever before. To provide an ultra-lightweight frame, Trek has used their 500 Series OCLV Carbon frame and fork that doesn't just allow you to go fast but also ensure you've got a rigid and reliable foundation to push the power through the pedals and build your strength upon. For their 2021 range, Trek decided to put the time and research into designing their most aero Émonda yet, using new and improved aerodynamic tube shaping for the SL's frame allowing this generation of Émonda's to simply outclass all of its predecessors. The new design of the Émonda allows this SL 6 model to be fast on all types of terrain, so no matter the racecourse you've nothing to fear; be it the steepest climb you've ever tackled, the fastest descent or even the strongest stretch of headwinds, the Émonda SL 6 can handle it all. Equipped with full Shimano Ultegra 2x11 groupset and quality Bontrager Paradigm Disc tubeless-ready wheels you've got great quality technology to take care of all your racing and riding needs. Flat-mount disc brakes will help keep you in control when you're shooting down that daredevil descent or if it's raining cats and dogs on race day. Finally, to provide you with peace of mind, Trek's Émonda SL 6 comes with a lifetime frame warranty to keep you're riding miles racking up over the years.
