It's right for you if...
You're building up a road bike for club rides or races, and you want an advanced aluminum frame with the sleek looks and handling characteristics normally found only in carbon models.
The tech you get
A lightweight 300 Series Alpha Aluminum frame with shaped tubes, Invisible Weld Technology for seamless joints, and internal cable routing. Includes an Émonda SL carbon fork with a carbon steerer and a headset. Built for direct mount rim brakes.
The final word
Carbon looks and ride quality, aluminum price point. If you thought alloy couldn't contend with carbon in beauty and performance, think again. Émonda ALR frameset is a value-minded ride that's perfectly comfortable taking a far more expensive carbon bike to the line.

"Direct and responsive"
"...a machine with a ton of gritty performance and no small amount of defiant flair."
"It's an incredible update from Trek"
"The updated Emonda packs one helluva punch, and Trek has a winner on its hands. The integrated cockpit is nice and all, but the real win is the H1.5 fit, which makes the Emonda feel more stable while maintaining the aggression and responsiveness of previous Emondas. That, coupled with a lightweight construction, comfortable ride, and aerodynamic shaping, brings Trek's top of the line climber from a very good bike to an excellent one."Read more
"The Emonda is still light, and it’s still stiff, but now there’s an extra dose of free speed"
"Overall, Trek has done a solid job here of updating the Emonda, infusing meaningful improvements in several key areas, but without breaking the basic formula that has made the bike so popular."Read more

Sizing & Tech
The charts below show our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8˝, for example, will fit on the same size bike. The best way to find your perfect fit is to consult the experts at your local retailer.
