Welcome to Trek's boundary-pushing, high-performance, ultra-light race machine, the Emonda SLR 9. With a frame weight of just 690 grams, the Emonda tickles the scales at mere 13.45 pounds! That's only part of the story. Light is nothing if the ride is anything shy of brilliant. Not to worry, Trek does carbon like no one else, so this tarmac-scorching masterpiece slingshots forward with every ankle twitch, carves perfectly as you kiss the corner's apex, and still manages to absolutely float up the steepest climbs with an ethereal, logic-defying silkiness. All that and it excels even further thanks to Trek's brilliant H2 geometry, with a slightly more heads up, back-friendly position, that plays a huge role in its impeccable ride manners.
The drivetrain and parts spec is on the same lofty level as the frame. Telepathic, electronically perfect shifting is yours with Shimano's Dura-Ace Di2, and your personal records are certain to fall with the 35mm-deep, tubeless-ready Bontrager Aeolus 3 D3 carbon wheels laying down your wattage. Controlling all that speed, yet blending in aerodynamically, are the Bonty Speed Stop direct-mount brakes. More carbon goodness from Bontrager comprises the bar, stem, and saddle for low weight, high stiffness, and more velocity. This is it, one ride and you will believe.
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.
