First Look: Trek’s Aero Emonda

The "climbing" bike gets a performance facelift

Press Release

Trek released an all-new Émonda with aerodynamic tube shaping. It’s a major performance upgrade for the platform, and it makes Trek’s lightest climbing bike faster than ever, while still keeping the frame weight under 700g.


Too often aero frame shapes are heavy and ride poorly. After over two years of development, and the creation of Trek’s lightest OCLV Carbon layup ever, Trek engineers found the perfect balance of speed and light weight, all while maintaining the amazing ride quality Émonda is famous for.
Available in both an SL and SLR version, the all-new aero Émonda is proven to be faster on flats and climbs alike.  It’s made of all-new 800 Series OCLV Carbon, weighs less than 700 grams, and delivers significant speed advantages thanks to its aerodynamic design. Compared to its predecessor, Émonda SLR is 60 seconds faster per hour faster on flats and 18 seconds per hour faster at an 8% grade.
800 Series OCLV Carbon
800 Series OCLV Carbon is Trek’s lightest and highest-performing carbon layup to date. It’s 30% stronger than previous OCLV Carbon laminates, yet just as stiff, allowing Trek engineers to create Émonda SLR’s aero shapes without adding a lot of weight.

All new Émonda models have hidden cable routing, most come with new aerodynamic Aeolus wheels, and Émonda SLR comes with an Aeolus RSL Bar/Stem that was purpose-built for it. Plus, Émonda’s H1.5 geometry, developed with the Trek-Segafredo pro cycling team, puts the rider in the optimal aero race position. Émonda SLR is also available for customization in Project One, Trek’s custom bike program, giving riders the chance to create the bike of their dreams.

Émonda SL features the same fast aero tube shaping as Émonda SLR, but it’s made from lightweight 500 Series OCLV Carbon. Riders will enjoy both the gains in speed and lower pricepoint Émonda SL provides.
