What do you add to any bike to make it perform better? You add lightness.

The Emonda SL 5 takes that concept and runs with it. The bare frame is engineered to shave weight wherever possible. Instead of a garden-variety seatpost, the Emonda SL 5 is built with a no-cut Ride Tuned seatmast and cap, reducing overall weight. The seatmast is also constructed to improve the bike's ride quality, keeping the rider fresher over rough and choppy pavement. By using Trek's proprietary 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber, the Emonda SL 5's frame is not only light, but also torsionally rigid. This produces a snappy feel, especially during uphill, out-of-the-saddle efforts. A press-fit BB90 bottom bracket anchors the crankset, improving pedaling response further. The Emonda SL 5's tapered head tube reduces flex up front, adding an extra dash of handling precision. The overall "H2" fit of the Emonda SL series boasts a taller head tube, allowing a wide range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to get comfortable. The Emonda SL 5's fork is also carbon fiber with a tapered alloy steerer tube, helping to keep the overall chassis weight down.

It's the small details that make a good bicycle great, and the Emonda SL 5 has plenty. Things like internal routing for shifter and brake cables that reduce their maintenance intervals. Details like the aperture in the left chainstay for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) that eliminates the need for clumsy zip-ties. Direct-mount 2-bolt installation of the brake calipers improve lever feedback and overall stopping power, because braking is a detail that should never be overlooked. These items wouldn't be added if the bike ended up being obviously heavier.

The Emonda SL 5 comes with a newly refined 11-speed Shimano 105 component group that takes design cues from their pro-level Dura-Ace components. Called "R7000", the new 105 component group seeks to simply get out of the way of the rider and let them focus on the road ahead. The new 50/34T HollowTech compact crankset features a more aerodynamic shape. Shimano 105 dual-control levers require less effort to operate, and have a greater range of reach adjustability compared to previous generations. The sleek new Shadow-style 105 rear derailleur not only tucks itself out of the wind, it also responds to shifts better under hard pedaling loads. Even the 105 front derailleur's toggle-pivot design is easier to adjust than the previous generation.

Tubeless-ready alloy Bontrager Affinity wheels are wrapped with Bontrager's 700x25c R1 Hard-Case Lite tires, bringing confident grip and easy acceleration to the Emonda SL 5. Helping to reign in speed is the job of Shimano's direct-mount 105 brake calipers, boasting some of the best rim brake performance found on bicycles today. Bontrager also supplies the Montrose Comp saddle, accessory-ready alloy Elite Blendr stem, and alloy Comp VR-C road handlebar.
