Description

When Trek built the Emonda S 4, they created an incredibly fast, fun machine. A bike that features a full carbon frame made from Trek's OCLV carbon, some of the best and lightest in the business. Light is one thing, but what really sets the Emonda apart is the ride. The specific carbon layup and the dialed geometry combine to give you that lively, yet stable feel that makes us get on our bikes in the first place. They didn't skimp on components either. A full 10-speed Shimano Tiagra gruppo and tubeless-ready Bontrager wheels grace the frame and blow the performance-to-value ratio out of the water.

Features & Info

E2 Head Tube

Tapered head tube and fork.For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, tapered head tubes (see image, on left) and forks pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2-inch, see image, on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8-inch). This combination sheds weight compared to straight 1 1/2-inch systems, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to straight 1 1/8-inch systems. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.

Fun to ride

Pros:
Responsive, Light
Cons:
Best Uses:
Overall I love the bike so far. Rides well and is a blast to ride. The only issue I have is I wish they would have really committed to the blue and white color scheme. The Gray frame is nice but think it would have been nice if they made the frame blue. As for the ride the bike was responsive the wheels were solid on the road and turns with out feeling like I had to work to get them going.
