More choice for all genders
We believe every rider—regardless of gender, body type, riding style, or ability—deserves a great bike. One that gets you excited to hop in the saddle and ride. A bike that makes you want to go faster and farther than ever before. A bike that feels like it was made just for you. Because it was. Trek is introducing new bikes to give better fits and more options to female and male riders alike. Historically, we’ve offered smaller frame sizes geared towards women on women’s models exclusively. We’re now offering smaller sizes and more colorways on every single 2020 Émonda. A smaller rider, no matter their gender, can now choose from every model we offer in these performance lines. There is no specific women’s offering for these bikes. They’re all women’s bikes. They’re all men’s bikes. Why are we doing this? To give more fit and color options to all riders, regardless of gender or size.
Ride Tuned seatmast
Our no-cut Ride Tuned seatmast is designed for the rigors of pro racing. It's the lightest, most comfortable solution for day-in, day-out performance and comfort, however rough the roads or hard the riding.
Flat Mount disc brakes
All-new Flat Mount disc brakes are more elegant, lighter, smaller, and cleaner than traditional disc brakes, providing superior performance and stopping power under harsh conditions.
H2 is the optimal fit to put most riders, including many of our Pro Team athletes, in the right position for power and performance.
Émonda is the ultimate lightweight road racing machine, pushing the boundaries of what's possible for bicycle weight and ride performance.

Sizing & fit
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 Trek retailer.
