2015 Trek Emonda Review and First Ride

   Words by Aaron Scott

This week sees the release of Trek’s new road bike into the wild. The 2015 Trek Emonda takes its place alongside the legendary Madone and the innovative Domane, turning the Duet into a trilogy. The Madone is Trek’s out and out (although comfortable) racer whilst the Domane is the mile munching, smooth riding, all day bike. So how does the Emonda fit in with Trek’s great road vision?

Weighty Issue

The thing that is immediately noticeable about the Emonda is its weight. This bike is billed as the lightest production road bike ever, a claim backed up once the bike is on the scales with the SLR 10 nudging 4.6 kg!! and the weight benefit filters down to the S4 which comes in at 8.74Kg and costing only £1200 with Tiagra. That not only makes it excellent value but a serious consideration for a bike to upgrade rather than replace.

Lightweight usually means a greater level of flex in the frame but we haven’t felt a bit of it. Trek’s OCLV process is so effective at delivering a stiff carbon whilst being light that you wonder if they did a deal with the Devil to get the technology.

The weight of the bike suggests a bike that is extremely effective on the climbs and the fork is a very direct looking beast when compared to the Domane. It’s certainly built with a competitive grunt in its hollow bird like bones making this a definite choice for the racers amongst us. Trek’s “H” geometry comes in to play with a H1 head tube option on SLR giving a slammed aggressive edge with the SL and S models coming with H2 for an easier position. The Emonda is also available in women’s specific geometry.

The Emonda doesn't share a direct link with the Domane, the latter is still the king of giant distances, but it does inhabit the same sphere as the Madone. The two clearly happy to be performing under pressure but it may be that the Emonda inherits the mantle of the king to rule them after proving itself on the world stage. We’ve got the Emonda in stock NOW in our Whitwell store so get down there this weekend and check out the hype for yourself…I know, but the TDF highlights are on ITV4 so you’re not going to miss anything.
