 When the Trek Emonda SLR 10 took the stage, everyone gasped at the weight -or lack thereof- shown on the scale. But the Emonda SLR 10 is hardly an affordable option to a first-time road racer or "granfondo" competitor. The Emonda SL series brings much more affordable options, starting with the SL 6.

Lightness was indeed the first priority when designing the Emonda SL, but a smooth ride quality came a close second. A light bicycle is actually easy to build, but one that is also comfortable over many miles is a bit trickier to do. Trek's proprietary OCLV 500 Series carbon fiber was the first ingredient in making the Emonda SL 6 a better performer in the hills. Minimal resin use and ultralight carbon fiber keeps weight to a bare minimum. By using carefully selected layup schedules, the raw carbon fiber material can add better compliance to the bike as well as making it torsionally rigid for sudden, powerful sprints. The Emonda SL 6's Ride Tuned seat mast and cap eliminates weight and adds more vertical compliance. A super-rigid BB90 bottom bracket keeps the crankset from flexing the frame, robbing the rider's energy when they might need it most. Internal cable routing keeps the Emonda SL 6 looking sleek, while adding to cable life. An aperture in the left chainstay for an ANT+ DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) keeps the Emonda SL 6 free of clumsy zip-ties. The 3S chain keeper eliminates the problem of dropped chains and the greasy hands that go with it. The Emonda SL 6 features a more upright H2 fit, allowing a wider range of riders and flexibilities to fit comfortably.

The Emonda SL 6 is equipped with Shimano's 11-speed Ultegra components for lightning-quick operation and long service life. The derailleurs, shifters, 50/34T compact crankset, 11-28T cassette and even multi-pivot brake calipers are all designed to work in concert for outstanding performance for years to come. Bontrager supplies the alloy tubeless-ready Bontrager Race wheels and 23mm R2 Hard-Case Lite tires for excellent grip and easy acceleration. A Bontrager Paradigm R saddle, alloy Elite stem and alloy Race Lite road handlebar complete this featherweight performer.
