This might be the best entry level to a carbon fiber road machine with electronic shifting. Trek's Emonda SL 6 eTap shares the same Kammtail Virtual Foil (or KVF) aero frame shape as its big brother SLR version. This feature alone will save you a minute over 25 miles compared to the previous Emonda SL version. But the reason Trek built the Emonda is all about lightness...
With a sub-19 pound build, the Emonda SL 6 eTap will make every hill just a bit easier to tackle. Trek's 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber is a proven material to build outstanding performance road bicycles. A rock-solid T47 bottom bracket ensures no energy is wasted with every pedal stroke; perfect for attacking steep inclines and sprinting away from the peloton. Internal brake hosing and a chainstay aperture for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) keeps the Emonda SL 6 looking clean and sleek.
SRAM's wireless Rival eTap AXS component group lowers the threshold for every rider looking for lightning-quick shifting, precise operation and a wide gearing range.
Emonda SL 6 Disc has all the advantages of an ultralight carbon road bike, with the added benefit of aero tube shaping that will make you faster on flats and up climbs, too. An ultra-smart and smooth SRAM Rival AXS wireless electronic drivetrain, lightweight carbon wheels, and an included power meter make this bike a great choice for fast roadies who want every performance advantage.
