There's an old saying: "Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away".

The Emonda SL 5 might be perfect.

With Trek's obsession for lightness on full display, the Emonda SL 5 brings that obsession to the rider at a surpringly affordable price. Years of careful testing and analysis make the Emonda SL frame a true featherweight using Trek's exclusive 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber. Every frame size is refined to offer a brilliant ride quality as well as incredible torsional strength. The tapered E2 head tube and fully carbon fiber fork adds precision to the Emonda SL 5's handling in sharp turns and descents. A press-fit BB90 bottom braket anchors the crankset, providing instant pedaling response. The Emonda's more upright H2 fit allows a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilites- to get comfortable for long hours in the saddle. The complete frame weighs in at roughly 1000 grams. Closer to perfection? Maybe...

The details found in the Emonda SL 5's frame make every ride easier by letting the rider concentrate on the road ahead. Internal cable routing and an aperture in the left chainstay for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) bring a clean look to the Emonda SL 5. The Ride Tuned seatmast and cap that replaces the seatpost is not only light, but also allows the Emonda SL to soak up fatiguing vibration. Direct-mount Shimano 105 brake calipers bring better lever feedback during hard braking, adding a more confident feel.

Shimano's proven 11-speed 105 components are found throughout the Emonda SL 5, including the dual-control levers, both derailleurs, the 50/34T compact crankset, 11-28T cassette, and even the chain. With a compete Shimano component group functioning together, the Emonda SL 5 operates with unerring smoothness, precision and longevity. Tubeless-ready alloy Bontrager wheels give the Emonda SL easier acceleration out of every corner, while 700x25c Bontrager R1 Hard-Case Lite tires bring excellent lateral grip for fast cornering. The aformentioned direct-mount brake calipers are a new standard that pro road racers have embraced for improved stopping performance while adding extra clearance for slightly wider tires. A Bontrager Montrose Comp saddle, accessory-ready alloy Bontrager Elite Blendr stem and alloy Race VR-C road handlebar complete this perfection-obsessed road machine.
