Trek smashes the notion of what fast can be with the Emonda SLR 8. With a frame weight of just 690 grams, the Emonda leaves other bikes at the bottom of the climb. And that's only part of the story. Light is nothing if the ride isn't there. The geometry was tweaked with direct pro racer feedback so it's crisp, tight and aggressive. Trek does carbon like no one else, so it's stiff where you demand it, and smooth where you need it. One ride and you find yourself going a little faster, leaning into those corners a little more, and taking the long way home every time. A full Dura-Ace gruppo graces the frame, and you toe up to the line with Race X Lite wheels. Two fits are available, H1 for flexible, aggressive riders and racers, while the H2 provides a slightly more upright fit. The Emonda is the new benchmark for fast, get used to waiting for others.
