The Emonda is Trek’s climbing and racing whippet. The majority of the range is Carbon and has had some design and spec tweaks for 18/19 to keep it at the front of the pack. As the performance model, the carbon Emondas do without the IsoSpeed technology to ensure the stiffest and most performance orientated ride possible.
And then there’s the all new searingly beautiful ALR (Aluminium) versions. Trek have used all their materials expertise to come up with a welding process called Invisible Weld – the joins aren’t quite invisible everywhere but up on the headtube joins you could swear you were looking at a carbon bike. Disclaimer – one of the Crankboutique team owns one of these and yes he’s besotted.
