Emonda ALR 5 Disc is a lightweight aluminium road bike with powerful hydraulic disc brakes, a full 2x11 Shimano 105 R7000 series disc groupset and an ultra-advanced alloy frame that gives it the sleek looks and handling of a far more expensive carbon bike.
It's right for you if...
You want all the advantages of a bike built to be the lightest in its class, with the added benefit of powerful disc brakes and a wallet-friendly alloy frame with the sleek looks and handling that you'd expect only from a carbon frame.
Every detail of the Emonda line, from frame design to each component choice on every model, serves the same audacious goal: to create the lightest line of production road bikes ever offered.
The entire Emonda line is unbelievably light, with sensational ride-tuned balance and handling that elevate Trek ride performance to a whole new level. Built with unmatched attention to balance and handling, Emonda ALR offers elegance on a new level, far surpassing the lightness and performance of many of its carbon competitors.
- Ultra lightweight: Trek's lightest and best-riding aluminium race bike pushes the boundaries of what's possible for bicycle weight and performance.
- Super-advanced aluminium frame: Trek's premium-grade 300-series Alpha Aluminium is hydroformed into size-specific tubes that provide the perfect balance of stiffness and weight.
- Invisible weld technology: Revolutionary welding technology never before seen on an aluminium road bike creates a better connection with each tube junction, increasing strength while using less material. The results are smooth and flawless seams, stronger bonds between the frame's tubes, sparkling aesthetics, and decreased frame weight.
- Emonda SL fork: ultra lightweight full carbon construction
- Sharing the geometry of Trek's highest-end carbon Emonda racing bikes, it gives you a ride quality that stands up in every way to far more expensive carbon bikes: it climbs fast, corners on rails, and descends with confidence
- Lifetime warranty: Trek backs the lightest production road bike in the world with the best warranty in the world.
- Complete groupsets: Every Emonda model comes with matching chain, cassette, shifters, derailleurs, crank, brakes, everything. The Emonda ALR 5 Disc features full Shimano 105 componentry.
- Disc brakes offer better braking performance and extra clearance for wider, more stable tyres
- Weight (56cm): 8.86kg
- Tapered headtube
The fork tapers from a 1.5" lower bearing to a 1 1/8" upper bearing. The larger-diameter lower bearing keeps the fork stiffer under cornering loads and distributes forces more evenly, increasing the life of the bearings. Result: a more confident and durable ride.
Wide, stiff press-fit bottom bracket improves pedalling performance for exhilarating acceleration.
- Tubeless Ready
These TLR rims will allow you to take the plunge to a tubeless tyre system. Advantages of going tubeless include: a lighter set-up, reduced chance of punctures, and the ability to run grippier, lower tyre pressures without having to worry about pinch punctures.
- DuoTrap S compatible
The end of cable ties. DuoTrap S seamlessly integrates the computer sensor (available separately) into the frame to measure speed, distance, and cadence with no added aerodynamic drag. It sends the data by Bluetooth and ANT+ so will work with Bluetooth compatible smartphones and all the major ANT+ wireless technology players, including Bontrager, Garmin, Bryton, PowerTap, and SRM.
- Blendr stem
A stem/accessory integration interface that enables you to position your Blendr-compatible accessory in a convenient, easy-to-reach-and-see location without the hassle and clutter of extra brackets.
- 3S integrated chain keeper
The 3S chain keeper is integrated directly into the bike frame. It's an elegant solution that provides flawless gear shifting even on rough roads and under heavy loads. No more standing on the side of the road, covered in grease, unwedging your dropped chain as competitors race by.
- The lightest road bike line in the world is backed by the cycling world's best warranty.
Trek Emonda ALR 5 Disc review, Cycling Weekly magazine, January 2019:
"It does ... ride better than its rival and for the price, weight and spec with the new 105 disc groupset it's pretty much unrivalled."
Verdict: The Trek Emonda ALR is a great bike for those looking to get a ride on a well-equipped machine that rides more like carbon than aluminium. Trek has got it right with the Emonda ALR: is this aluminium making a strong comeback?
