More and more these days, road bikes are fracturing into constantly evolving niches. On one end of the spectrum is the aero race bike with its deep-section carbon wheels and huge teardrop shaped tubes (the Trek Madone), and on the other end is the endurance road bike with its long wheelbase and fatigue-saving technologies (the Trek Domane). But what if you’re not fussed about either of those things? What if you just want a simple all-round road bike that’s lightweight, smooth to ride, and efficient? And all you need is a bike that’s just as happy climbing in the hills with your mates as it is on a criterium racecourse? Then you may just be after something like the Trek Emonda SL.

Taking its design cues from the top-level Emonda SLR, the SL version shares a similar silhouette with its E2 tapered head tube, internal cable routing and BB90 bottom bracket system. The Emonda SL even uses the same integrated seatmast cap, which reverses the traditional seatpost design to increase vertical compliance whilst decreasing overall weight. Unlike other brands integrated seatpost systems, there is no cutting involved with Trek’s seatmast, and two lengths are available depending on your saddle height. The core difference with the Emonda SL then is actually beneath the paint. Using OCLV 500 carbon fibre, it isn’t quite as light as the OCLV 700 used on the Emonda SLR, but it offers a very similar ride quality and it also brings the price down considerably.

And with build kit options from Ultegra di2 all the way down to the Shimano 105-equipped Emonda SL 5, more riders will be able to experience the lightweight and smooth ride quality of the Emonda chassis.
