Trek's top of the range Émonda SLR range is ready to take you up the steepest of ascents whilst providing you with the tools you need to tackle the descents. The ultralight frame (665g with Vapour Coat paint) is Trek's lightest ever disc road frame. Whilst incredibly lightweight it is also super responsive and stiff thanks to Trek's H2 geometry and fitting position. The Émonda is a great option for those looking for a road racing option or a bike to tackle continental mountain ranges or even hilly routes a little closer to home. Flat mount hydraulic disc brakes provide blissful braking on all surfaces and in all conditions, that won't threaten to falter when the rain comes down or road muck gets thrown up at you. Finally, the SLR 6 has been finished with Shimano's Ultegra, 11-speed, groupset which brilliantly blends durability and reliability all at a low weight.
It's right for you if...
Rain or shine, smooth pavement or rough – you ride fast, climb high, race hard and put in long hours in the saddle. You're looking for the performance advantage of disc brakes, and you know you shouldn't have to compromise on weight to get it.
The tech you get
Trek's lightest disc brake frame ever, plus the all-weather stopping power of hydraulic disc brakes, the ride quality of 700 Series OCLV Carbon and dependable, race-ready parts like a full Shimano Ultegra drivetrain, Bontrager XXX OCLV carbon handlebar, Bontrager Paradigm Comp Disc wheels and a Women-Specific Design saddle.
The final word
This lightweight ride is built with a fully race-capable parts group, but what you're really getting for your money is the lightest disc frame Trek has ever made (665 g with Vapour Coat paint), with the better braking performance of flat-mount disc brakes.
