Trek Emonda SLR Disc - Vapour Coat

Trek Emonda SLR Disc - Vapour Coat

Wakes 1

John loves riding up mountains - especially the Stelvio - and he wanted a light bike with excellent braking in all weathers. He has had a Parlee for a decade and more recently an Alchemy custom frame. He opted for Trek as their huge R&D budget enables them to build the lightest and strongest carbon frames currently avaibale. Surprisingly, given that the Emonda SLR is very light and strong it is also very comfortable due to how the carbon is laid up in the mould. the slim seat stays will cushion the rider and the narrow waisted top tube offers enough flex to reduce any jarring on bumpy roads.

John's trek is a custom Project One farme and painted in Deep Dark Blue Vapour Coat (£1,100.00) he built his bike with SRAM's wireless eTap groupset and used Bontrager's tubeless ready Aeolus XXX4 wheelset (1500g). Handlebars and stem are by Enve Composites.

  • "I tried the shorter cranks today and I like them - it feels like it's less stress for the back and it seems easier to ride higher cadence. In the end I had a good Tour with no back problems. Thanks for your help!"

  • "Hey Julian and Phil, I hope you are both well. I just completed a 21 hour week on my new 165mm cranks and I am in love. They feel so so great! Thank you for all your help. I’ve never felt so comfortable on my bike before. All the best, Hannah"

  • "I had my second fitness test this weekend and on the first 8 minute time trial I'd improved average power output by a whopping 41 watts over the previous test. This is almost entirely down to the new position!"
