When Trek built the Emonda S 4, they created an incredibly fast, fun machine. A bike that features a full carbon frame made from Trek's OCLV carbon, some of the best and lightest in the business. Light is one thing, but what really sets the Emonda apart is the ride. The specific carbon layup and the dialed geometry combine to give you that lively, yet stable feel that makes us get on our bikes in the first place. They didn't skimp on components either. A full 10-speed Shimano Tiagra gruppo and tubeless-ready Bontrager wheels grace the frame and blow the performance-to-value ratio out of the water.

Tapered head tube and fork.For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, tapered head tubes (see image, on left) and forks pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2-inch, see image, on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8-inch). This combination sheds weight compared to straight 1 1/2-inch systems, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to straight 1 1/8-inch systems. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.

Comments:

I love this bike. I have had it now for about 7 months and it has been a great time. Trek considers this to be an entry-level road bike. However, entry-level from all other brands are usually aluminum frames. This is a carbon fiber frame, making it as light of a bike as some of the more expensive road bikes out there. That said, I have had to get the shifting cables tightened a few times, which may be normal. The seat is mediocre and I upgraded that and I replace the Tiagra brake pads with Ultra and it is much better and more responsive. Even adding the slight upgrades, this bike is still worth every penny and is a great investment.

    Got this bike about a month and half ago. So far I have to say I love this bike. Fun to ride it really likes to go. The shifting so far is great and smooth. Would have liked disc brakes but for the cost could in no way expect them. For me this was an upgrade from a 10 year old aluminum Allez so the difference is night and day.

      Overall I love the bike so far. Rides well and is a blast to ride. The only issue I have is I wish they would have really committed to the blue and white color scheme. The Gray frame is nice but think it would have been nice if they made the frame blue. As for the ride the bike was responsive the wheels were solid on the road and turns with out feeling like I had to work to get them going.

      Retirement present to myself. Traded up from a Fuji aluminum frame to the Trek carbon frame. I have another carbon frame and once you go carbon, you don't go back.

      Retirement gift to myself. Good deal on my Fuji trade-in. Started out with size 58cm and it didn't feel right. No problem with returning the bike for size 60cm. Good fit, smooth and fast ride and will be better when change to a comfortable saddle. I like comfort and speed at my own pace.
