Trek Emonda SLR 2022 2023 Road test review Build quality
We are at a very high level, one of the best road bikes on the market.
All well made and cared for, even if the bike is very expensive and this brings everything back to a sufficient value for money but nothing more.
Impossible, with a 15 thousand euro racing bike, not to expect the top, even in the smallest details.
In reality then, the bike is well made, but it lacks that touch of true craftsmanship that only some products manage to have.
Well done, cared for, but if it weren't well pushed by marketing it would be a racing bike like many others.
Trek Emonda SLR 2022 2023Road Test Review Frame
The frame is very well made, a reference point for its lightness.
Very reliable it is also proposed with a good availability of sizes.
Equally excellent is the possibility to customize the colors and the basic color range.
Nice frame, expensive, but well made, if not a bargain in absolute terms.
Trek Emonda SLR 2022 2023Road Test Assemblies Review
The Emonda frame is available in different types of carbon, SLR and SL, as well as in various assemblies, so in addition to the top range version you can also favorably choose the less expensive versions.
Less expensive so to speak, as prices are always quite high.
Build quality always remains valid.
Ultimately, for those who have chosen to buy this model there is certainly no shortage of alternatives between the various assemblies proposed.
Trek Emonda SLR 2022 2023Road test Comfort review
It's not an endurance bike, like the Domane, but it's by no means an uncomfortable racing bike.
Long bike rides are easily feasible.
Among the high performance racing bikes it is one of the most comfortable ever.
In this respect, an excellent compromise between high performance and ride comfort.
Trek Emonda SLR 2022 2023Road Test Review Guide
The Trek Emonda SLR is a very light road bike, easy and intuitive to ride, but which still requires some experience of riding at high speeds.
Its lightness allows you to descend quickly from mountain passes, but you need decision in driving and you do not need to get distracted, especially on damaged asphalt sections.
Not so sensitive to cross wind, it runs precisely on the plains and hills.
Excellent braking and speed when entering corners.
Equally valid is the ability to be fast on the narrow mountain roads, where hairpins are not a problem.
It's not the easiest road bike to ride downhill, but it redeems itself well in all other conditions.
A good frame.
Trek Emonda SLR 2022 2023Road test review Performance
Everything can be said except that the Trek Emonda SLR is not a very high performance bike.
As expensive as you want, but it remains one of the best climbing bikes in absolute terms.
There are better bikes on the flat, others more balanced, others more versatile, but none are as good uphill as the Emonda SLR.
Then for everything else there may be better competitors, but years after its appearance, the Emonda remains a pure climbing bike.
An excellent bike for those who like the climb, still valid even in the plains.
Overall its performance is at the absolute top on the climb, while overall it is of a high level.
Trek Emonda SLR 2022 2023 Road test review Pros and cons
The Trek Emonda SLR continues to be a benchmark for high-end mountain bikes.
The uphill performance remains at the absolute top.
On the plains and hills it defends itself.
Downhill is not the easiest bike to ride.
It is not a cheap bicycle.
A good racing bike, perfect uphill, coveted by climbers.
The high price is its real flaw.
