This bike weighs 10.25 pounds. 10.25 pounds! Miraculously, that only tells part of the story. The ride quality is like nothing you've ever experienced. Trek's heralded OCLV carbon provides the smoothness, the stiffness, that "feel" — it has to be ridden to be believed. The geometry is modeled using direct feedback from racers for the crisp handling and tight cornering that both pros and amateurs crave. Aggressive yet stable, quick yet confident, no one does race bikes like Trek, and they have the wins to prove it. In addition to the incredible 690 gram frame, the lightness is achieved with a careful selection of parts. The Tune wheels, seen under Tour de France winners, are 25mm deep tubulars that weigh 825 grams. That's for the pair! The Bontrager bar/stem combo saves 75 grams over a traditional set up, yet retains the same stiffness. A full carbon saddle, ceramic bearings, and Jagwire housing shave off grams as well. Even the brakes are custom Bontys that are super light yet super powerful and shifting duty is expertly handled by SRAM RED 11-speed. More than just the sum of its parts, the Emonda SLR 10 is the pinnacle of lightweight, no-compromise performance. This changes everything, are you ready?

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.

Trek's Emonda features a unique bottom bracket (image, right) that's 90mm wide (traditional ones are 68mm wide). This wide bottom bracket lets Trek build the frame with larger tubes for increased power transfer. Plus, the 90mm bottom bracket is machined so that the bearings can be placed directly into the frame (image) saving weight (due to fewer parts), ensuring additional pedaling efficiency and simplifying maintenance and repair.
