Not too long ago, road bicycles were fairly simple machines. There wan't any aero-this or endurance-that. The Trek Emonda series is a return to that simplicity.

The Emonda SL 6 takes that simple concept -light weight, nimble handling, precise operation- and brings Trek's technological know-how to bear. By starting with their ultralight 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber material, the Emonda SL 6's frame is already ahead of the game. By using a Ride Tuned seatmast and cap instead of a seatpost, the engineers at Trek were able to improve ride quality and reduce weight at the top of the bike. An E2 tapered head tube and BB90 bottom bracket increases torsional strength, making the Emonda SL 6 more responsive in turns and while charging uphill. The slightly more upright E2 fit of the Emonda SL allows a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to get comfortable with minimal component changes. By using internal cable routing and an aperture in the left chainstay for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately), the Emonda SL 6 is kept clean and sleek.

Shimano's 11-speed Ultegra components are found throughout the Emonda SL 6's drivetrain. They got a recent update, and add incredible performance to the Emonda SL 6. Called "R8000" by Shimano, this version of Ultegra components sees changes both big and small:

 

  • Reshaped levers and hood for a more comfortable grip.
  • Wider range of lever adjustability for smaller hands.
  • Less effort required to shift to larger cogs and chainrings with a more positive detent at each gear.
  • Redesigned Shadow-style rear derailleur, offering a wider gearing capacity and better aero/drag numbers.
  • Tapered front derailleur cage that allows the use of wider rear tires.
  • Reshaped aero-style 50/34T compact crankset that is also torsionally stiffer for better power transfer to the 11-28T Ultegra cassette.

 

Ultegra is better than ever, making the Emonda SL 6 even more amazing. A tubeless-ready alloy Bontrager Paradigm wheelset does its share of keeping the bike's overall weight low, and is shod with 700x25c Bontrager R2 Hard-Case Lite tires for confident grip in high-speed corners and descents. Helping to reign in speed is a set of Bontrager Speed Stop brake calipers. Because the calipers are mounted on two threaded hardpoints instead of one, the stiffer calipers bring better lever feedback to the rider. They also offer better tire clearance for 28mm rubber. A Bontrager Montrose Comp saddle takes the edge off rough roads, while an accessory-ready alloy Bontrager Pro Blendr stem holds a computer or light with included mounts. An alloy Bontrager Elite VR-C road handlebar completes this road-ready machine.

Criteriums? Centuries? Weekly club rides? Solo rides in the countryside? The Emonda SL 6 does everything well.
