Quick Overview

Trek's lightest-ever road frame with Shimano's pro-level components

Details

Color: Matte Black/Matte Silver

Size: 56cm

This is it: Trek's lightest road frameset with the best pro-level components made today.

The Emonda SLR made history when it was introduced. The frame seemed so light, you needed a paperweight to hold it down when you sneezed! Now, you need to wrap your head around the fact that this generation of Emonda is even lighter! When paired with Shimano's Dura-Ace 9100-series components and carbon fiber Aeolus Pro 3 wheels, the resulting Emonda SLR 8 weighs slightly less than 13-3/4 pounds.

 

Yes, you read that right. 13-3/4 lbs for the 56cm bike.

 

Trek's unflinching commitment to raising the performance bar has made the competition break into a cold sweat. Do you blame them? The Emonda SLR's 700 series OCLV carbon fiber frame set has gone through the meat grinder of professional road racing. Trek-Segafredo riders like recent World Road Champion Mads Pedersen depend on their Trek Emonda team bikes to be not only light, but also smooth, nimble and reliable. Trek's exclusive 700 series carbon fiber brings together several different qualities of carbon fiber to produce astonishing lightness for climbing, as well as industry-leading torsional strength for instant pedaling response. The geometry of the Emonda SLR isn't nervous or twitchy; that would make the bike a handful over 3 weeks of Grand Tour racing. The Emonda SLR is a perfect companion for long days in the saddle over hills and mountain ranges, coddling the rider in preparation for a race-winning effort at the end of the day. This Emonda SLR features more upright H2 geometry, allowing a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to get comfortable. Internal cable routing, a no-cut Ride Tuned seat mast, direct-mount brake caliper installation and an aperture for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) complete the details that make this bike an engineering Tour de Force.

Shimano's Dura-Ace road components aren't just for elite-level athletes. They're built for the long haul. Durability is their hallmark, just as much as lightness and precise operation. Somehow, Shimano managed to reduce the Dura-Ace component group's weight while preserving derailleur operation, crankset rigidity and brake lever feedback. Less effort is required for shifts, while the Shadow-style rear derailleur is more aero. A 50/34T compact Dura-Ace crankset and 11-28T Dura-Ace cassette brings a wide gearing range to the Emonda SLR 8, while Bontrager Speed Stop dual-mount brake calipers add confident stopping power.

Bontrager's latest Aeolus Pro 3 wheels are tubeless-ready carbon fiber masterpieces, weighing only 1506 grams. The bullet-nosed profile of the Aeolus wheels improves stability in gusty winds while still reducing drag. The rim's 19.5mm interior width allows the tire tread to expand for a wider foot print, improving ride quality over rough pavement. 700x25c Bontrager R3 Hard-Case Lite tires boast low rolling resistance and excellent cornering grip.

As for the Emonda SLR 8's "furniture": A ti-railed Bontrager Montrose Pro saddle sits atop the Ride Tuned seatmast cap, while an accessory-ready alloy Bontrager Pro Blendr stem clamps a carbon fiber Bontrager XXX road handlebar.

This bicycle can be ordered through Trek's Project One program. Millions of color combinations, graphics packages, and component choices allow you to make your Emonda SLR 8 uniquely your own. Please call for details.
