Trek's lightweight climber, the Émonda is more than a one trick
pony. H2 geometry, developed alongside their Pro teams, provides an
efficient riding position whether climbing or on the flat.
The OCLV 500-series carbon frameset may be ultralight, but it's
also remarkably comfortable, particularly with the ride-tuned
carbon seatmast that's designed to be super strong and highly
adjustable. yet absorb excess vibration.
Outfitted with Bontrager Aeolus Pro 3 carbon wheels in a
sensible, versatile 35mm depth this is a well thought out package.
Ultegra Di2 provides precise, effortless shifting - just what you
need when climbing mixed grades, and the hydraulic disc brakes are
a welcome feature on the descents that inevitably follow, however
fast and technical they might be.
