The Emonda SL 5 bike uses all the tricks and tech that Trek is well known for: a BB90 bottom bracket and E2 head tube for stiffness and handling, internal cable routing for a clean look, and their super-light, ride-tuned seatmast. Never one to rest on their laurels, Trek whittled down the full-carbon frame to just 1,050 grams and tweaked the specific layup of the carbon and the geometry to give it a ride quality that others only hope to achieve. As if that wasn't enough, you get amazing value with a full 11-speed Shimano 105 group, tubeless-ready Bontrager wheels, and full cockpit of Bonty parts. This is no trick, it's simply a ride that has to be ridden to be believed.
I owed a Domane and loved the comfort. My race bike was a Cervelo S5. Awesome bike but I just could not get used to the fit. Read about the Emonda and the mix of Madone and Domane geometry. Rode it and fell in love. This bike has it all. Light, comfortable, fast, and as a bonus the Shimano 11spd 105 group set is pure magic. Zero complaints. Love it!!!
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
