You're looking at the sub-15-pound, Ultegra-equipped Emonda SLR 6. You read that right. Trek set out to create an incredibly light production bike, and nailed it with a 690-gram frame. Of course, light is nothing without ride quality. Trek does carbon like no one else, so the combination of their specific layup and geometry yields a bike that is fast, stiff, smooth, stable and confident all at the same time. It makes for a bike where you'll look forward to when the road turns up. You're just as fast on the flats with 11-speed Ultegra, Race Lite tubeless-ready wheels, and a whole slew of high-end Bonty parts. Sleek lines, legit components, best-in-class weight, two fitting options, and a ride that begs you to push it, that's the Emonda.
For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, tapered head tubes (see image, on left) and forks pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2-inch, see image, on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8-inch). This combination sheds weight compared to straight 1 1/2-inch systems, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to straight 1 1/8-inch systems. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.
