In short, Émonda offers next level performance and a winning advantage everywhere, every time.
Who is the Émonda perfect for?
The Émonda checks all the boxes for the cyclist who values all-around road capability and has a need for speed.
Are you entering a race with dreams of the podium? Are you looking for improved performance during your cycling club’s weekend events? Are you a lone wolf who hunts Strava segment KOMs? Whatever your reasons for maximizing your potential, Émonda delivers.
The ultra-stiff frame offers explosive power transfer that will rocket you up and over the biggest climbs. Émonda offers an insanely nimble feel while providing riders with surefooted stability on fast-paced descents.
What makes the new 2021 Émonda better?
The new generation of Émonda is better than ever.
Trek has bent over backwards at every stage in development to make the new models lighter, faster, and stronger.

Upgrades for the 2021 Émonda
OCLV 800: As Light As It Gets
Émonda is staggeringly light. It took a few years of testing, but Trek has been able to improve the Émonda’s stiffness and aerodynamic design all while refusing to add weight to the frame.
Both the SLR and the SL models feature Trek’s ultra high performance OCLV carbon frame that redefines road bike capabilities. However, this year’s SLR frames benefit from an entirely new carbon fiber, OCLV 800.
With frames weighing in under 700 grams, 800 Series OCLV carbon achieves the best stiffness-to-weight that Trek has ever developed, and raises the bar for road bike technology.
When your bike is as light as your neighbor’s miniature poodle, no PR is safe.
30% Stronger Carbon
As we said earlier, Trek’s new OCLV 800 series carbon fiber is not only light as a feather, but it’s stronger too.
Trek reports that OCLV 800 is 30% stronger than the previous series while retaining all the stiffness benefits.
Stronger frame material is key when designing the lightest, most aero bike possible.
More Aero and Faster Than Ever
Trek Emonda Geometry
Geometry Upgraded to H1.5 Fit
The new Émondas have been upgraded to an even more aero riding position.
The H1.5 fit allows men and women to keep an aggressive, aero posture that maximizes power transfer.

Trek Émonda FAQs
What does the Émonda's H1.5 fit refer to?
The H1.5 fit refers to the body position the rider assumes when on the bike, which is dictated by the bike's frame design. The new Émonda's H1.5 fit offers riders a great balance between the ultra-fast aerodynamic posture of H1 and the traditional, versatile road bike posture of H2.
Why does Trek make different fit geometries?
Trek makes road bikes for every occasion, and they know that every rider has a certain goal in mind regarding how they want to use their bike and how they would like it to perform. Some riders prioritize speed above all else. Other riders may want to pay more attention to comfort over longer rides.
What are the different Trek fits?
Trek has several different fit styles that they design frames around. The main fit geometries for Trek road bikes have historically been H1 and H2. Now, with the 2021 Émonda, we see a new fit geometry, H1.5.
How will the Émonda's H1.5 fit benefit me?
When you hop on the new Émonda, you'll benefit from a powerful riding position that improves energy transfer and rockets you forward with incredible aerodynamics. However, instead of going to H1, the absolute most aggressive fit geometry, Trek developed a middle ground that offers you more comfort while you're hammering out the miles. If you want to ride faster, for longer, the H1.5 fit is perfect for you.
What is the biggest tire I can fit on the new 2021 Émonda?
The new Émonda will fit up to a 30mm road tire, and this frame is not designed to be compatible with fenders. All in the name of aero!
Are these wheels tubeless compatible?
They sure are!
What kind of brakes does the new 2021 Émonda use?
All models utilize powerful disc brakes, the rear brake is flat mount, and the max size for both front and rear rotors is 160mm.
Is there anything else that's new on the 2021 Émonda?
Besides new OCLV 800 carbon on SLR frames, new wheels, new bar/stem combo, new cable routing, and more aero tube designs, the 2021 Émonda also now utilizes a T47 bottom bracket.
Is the new 2021 Émonda eligible for Project One?
