Trek’s fastest climbing bike has been refined with aero tubes shapes to make it faster, everywhere.
Aero matters for climbing, and the all-new Emonda’s aero tube shapes saves seconds on all gradients – 18 seconds per hour at an 8% gradient and a staggering 60 seconds per hour on the flats. Traditionally, adding aero tube shapes will make a bike heavier – but not with an all-new OCLV 800 on the Emonda SLR.
OCLV 800 carbon
OCLV 800 is the result of a multi-year process aimed at creating Trek’s strongest and lightest carbon ever. The new material is 30% stronger than anything used before, allowing the manufacturer to use less material in high-stress areas of the frame. The finished product: a sub-700 g frame.
The Emonda SL uses a more cost-effective lightweight 500 series OCLV carbon, making it a great option for those priced-out by the SLR range.
The Emonda launches alongside the new Aeolus RSL 37 wheels and Aeolus RSL Bar/Stem Combo, bringing the ultimate balance of weight and aero to the complete system.
Both the Emonda SLR and SL feature the identical frame shapes for identical aerodynamic performance. They both have a T47 BB for the ultimate in performance and serviceability. Cables are almost totally hidden, but still route externally to the bars, making service easy. Lastly, an H1.5 fit means that performance riders of every gender will find a powerful and aerodynamic position on Emonda.
The Emonda SL and SLR are now in stock and available to order online.
