This bicycle was produced by hand in Waterloo, WI, using the same molds and techniques as the Madone 6.9 SSL of the same year. The bicycle uses Trek's proprietary OCLV 110 carbon fiber material for very light weight and impressive torsional strength. An aggressive geometry provides nimble handling and lightning-fast pedaling response, especially during uphill, out-of-the-saddle efforts. Up front, a 1-1/8" Cane Creek external-cup headset holds the lightweight Bontrager Race X Lite OCLV 110 carbon fiber fork. The Madone's cables are all externally routed, allowing easy servicing in the field.
The Livestrong Madone bicycles feature real gold leaf panels on the top tube, down tube and seat tube. Lance Armstrong's signature appears across the top tube under the clearcoat. Yellow highlights and custom graphics adorn the bike and many of the components.
Shimano's 10-speed 7800 Dura Ace components are found throughout the bike, including the dual-control levers, both derailleurs, both multi-pivot brake calipers, and the 12-25T cassette. Long service life and precise operation can be expected for years to come from Shimano's best pro-level components. A Bontrager crankset with carbon fiber arms, 53/39T chainrings and matching custom graphics is an impressive centerpiece to the Livestrong Madone. Bontrager Race X Lite alloy wheels also feature custom yellow spokes and carbon fiber hubs, and are wrapped with 700x23mm Bontrager tires. A Bontrager carbon fiber seatpost, Bontrager saddle, Race XXX Lite carbon fiber stem and OCLV carbon fiber handlebar also boast custom yellow graphics.
This is a Project One version of the already high performance Emonda SLR 7. When the hills get really steep, you need a bike that is ready for any incline.
The Emonda SLR was made for making every hill easier. Sure, the frameset has some measure of Kammtail Virtual Foil (orKVF) frame shaping to slice through the air, but being light is top priority. How light? 698 grams for the bare frame. Trek's 800 Series OCLV carbon fiber is their lightest raw composite material, giving the engineers at Trek free reign to develop gravity-defying dream machines like the Emonda SLR. The material is 30% stronger than the previous 700 Series OCLV carbon fiber; a perfect starting point for a world-beating machine. Power transfer hasn't been forgotten, either. A rigid T47 bottom bracket makes every pedal stroke flex-free, even when attacking a hill out of the saddle. Internal cable routing and an aperture for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) in the left chainstay keeps the bike looking sleek. The Emonda SLR's H1.5 fit and geometry will fit a rider looking for a slightly more aggressive position, but without being mistaken for a pro.
The Emonda SLR 7's wheels are a perfect addition to this bike: The featherweight Aeolus RSL 37 Disc. Tipping the scales at a mere 1325 grams, this wheelset will make every acceleration close to completely effortless. They're tubeless ready, and boast a Dual Directional Design (or D3) rim profile that slices the air effectively while still resisting gusty crosswinds. 700x28c Bontrager R3 Hard-Case Lite tires offer a smoother ride experience while still cornering confidently.
Shimano's Ultegra electronic Di2 components make up the drivetrain, bringing lightning-quick operation, long service life, and very light weight. Electronic shifting delivers perfect shifting. Every. Single. Time. The shift buttons on the brake levers can be customized to favor right handers or left handers. A single charge can last 900 to 1,000 miles, depending on terrain and usage. The lithium ion battery is hidden in the seat tube, keeping it out of the wind and weather. This Emonda SLR 7 features an Ultegra crankset equipped with 50/34T compact chainrings. An 11-34T CS-HG800 11-speed cassette brings a huge gearing range to the party.
Hydraulic disc brakes aren't just for riding in the rain. The Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes found on this Emonda SLR 7 will also allow the rider to better predict stopping distances, thanks to better lever feedback. The flat-mount brake calipers reduce overall weight and promote more even pad wear.
Up front, this Emonda SLR 7 is equipped with an Aeolus RSL one-piece handlebar and stem unit. Built from OCLV carbon fiber, it weighs less than 300 grams. That's very little to add to the total weight of the bike! Channels under the handlebar allow for easy installation of hydraulic hosing and Di2 cables while keeping the front end of the bike very aero. A Bontrager Aeolus Elite saddle completes this high performance hill conqueror.
A Shimano DI2 charging cable is included in the purchase of this bicycle.
The Emonda SLR ultralight road bicycle has been an eye-opening performance machine for everyone who wants to tackle challenging terrain, from recreational road riders to pro-level racers. This Emonda SLR 7 eTap features SRAM's wireless eTap AXS 12-speed shifting, disc brakes and an extra dash of aero.
The Emonda SLR boasts a new carbon fiber "recipe" from Trek: 800 Series OCLV carbon fiber. With a frame weight of only 750 grams (that was not a misprint), the Emonda SLR is an incredible performance booster in hilly or mountainous terrain. Astounding lightness is not the only outcome when using this material. Improved torsional strength prevents frame-robbing flex with every pedal stoke. 800 Series OCLV carbon fiber also gave the engineers at Trek the leeway to add aerodynamic Kammtail shaping on the frame and fork. With a slipperier frameset, the latest version of the Emonda SLR will save a minute when riding 25 miles compared to the previous version. Internal cable routing and an aperture in the left chainstay for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) keeps the Emonda SLR looking clean and sleek.
This Emonda SLR 7 comes with SRAM's latest 12-speed Force eTap AXS component group, boasting wireless shifting. With a servo motor moving the derailleur instead of a cable, shifting accuracy is always perfect. Every. Single. Time. The lightning-quick shifting speed will even prolong the lifespan of your chain. Each derailleur is equipped with a lithium ion battery that can be removed for easy charging. A full charge will last roughly 60 hours of riding. The SRAM eTap AXS batteries are completely interchangeable, allowing the batteries to be swapped between derailleurs in case one loses charge before the other during a ride. Charge levels can be monitored with a smartphone app that can also update the drivetrain's firmware. The Emonda SLR's Force 48/35T crankset is paired with a SRAM Force XG-1270 10-36T cassette, bringing a huge gearing range to the party.
The Emonda SLR 7's wheels are Bontrager's Aeolus Pro 37's, wrapped with Bontrager R3 Hard-Case Lite 700x25c tires. Weighing only 1500 grams a set, the Pro 37's eagerly spin up to speed and slice through the wind like a razor. The Dual Directional Design (or D3) rim profile is crosswind resistant as well as very aero for a 37mm profile. SRAM Force hydraulic disc brakes perform brilliantly in all conditions, rain or shine.
Trek made sure the Emonda SLR 7's "furniture" would match the rest of the bike's capabilities. A One-piece OCLV carbon fiber Aeolus RSL handlebar and stem adds very little total weight to the bike, and keeps the cockpit very sleek. It has an aperture for a handlebar computer mount, eliminating the need for ugly strapwork. The Aeolus Elite saddle sits atop a Ride Tuned seatmast cap, completing this world-class performance machine.
A SRAM eTap battery charger is included with the purchase of this bicycle.
This Emonda SLR 7 was built through Trek's Project One program, allowing us to stock a slightly different parts specification than the version seen on the Trek website. Read on for more!
The Emonda SLR frame boasts Trek's lightest-ever "recipe" for their proprietary carbon fiber: 800 Series OCLV. As a result, the Emonda SLR's frame is one of the the lightest mass-manufactured road frames in the world. At only 650 grams for a 56cm in an H1.5 fit, the Emonda SLR is the starting point for a world-beating dream machine. The Emonda SLR's frame shaping adds an extra dash of aero, allowing the rider to slice through the air much better than the previous generation. How much better? About 60 seconds faster over 25 miles on the flats when compared to the previous generation Emonda SLR. The Emonda SLR can be built up with your choice of components, wheels and paint scheme for a one-of-a-kind high-performance road bike through their Project One program. For example, this in-stock Project One example features a 50/34T compact Ultegra crankset for tackling really steep inclines. The "regular" version of the Emonda SLR 7 runs a 52/36T Ultegra crankset.
This Emonda SLR 7 has been built with "stage race" geometry, providing nimble handling without being nervous or twitchy. The head tube is tapered, adding to the Emonda's torsional strength for a precise feel in high-speed corners and descents. The threaded T47 bottom bracket also improves torsional strength further, adding to the bike's snappy feel when accelerating uphill or during a sprint. Ride quality was also addressed when the Emonda SLR was being designed, and the no-cut Ride Tuned seat mast allows for a more vertically compliant frame. An aperture for a Bontrager DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) in the left chainstay and internal cable routing keeps the Emonda looking clean and sleek without clumsy zip-ties. Flat mount disc brake caliper installation reduces overall frame weight and improves lever feel and feedback. The Emonda SLR's frame design allow for slightly wider tires up to 30mm, improving ride quality while tackling rough and choppy tarmac.
Shimano's 11-speed Ultegra R8050 Di2 components are found throughout the Emonda SLR 6, including the dual-control levers, derailleurs, 50/34T compact crankset,11-34T cassette and even the chain. Long life, precise operation and literally lightning-quick shifting are the hallmarks of Shimano's performance-oriented Ultegra Di2 component group. A fully charged battery Di2 will last upwards of 900-1,000 miles between recharges. The battery itself is installed in the seat tube, keeping it and the internal wiring out of the weather and wind.
Bontrager's tubeless-ready OCLV carbon fiber Aeolus Elite 35 wheelset and 700x25c R3 Hard-Case Lite tires add easy acceleration and a smooth feel to the Emonda SLR. The wheels boast Bontrager's race-proven Dual Directional Design (or D3) rim profile, allowing the wheelset to resist crosswinds while still slicing through the wind. The bare wheelset weighs less than 1800 grams, keeping with the Emonda SLR 7's lightweight concept. Shimano Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes are not only fantastic in the rain, they give the rider a much better sense of stopping distance in every condition. A Bontrager Aeolus Elite saddle and Ride Tuned seatmast cap bring a comfortable perch for the rider, especially while in an aggressive in-the-drops position. Bontrager also supplies the ultralight Aeolus RSL carbon fiber road handlebar-and-stem unit. By cleverly tucking the Di2 shift wiring and hydraulic hosing into a recessed channel under the handlebar, the Emonda SLR is a much more integrated bike without being a nightmare to mechanics. There's even an aperture at the bar's leading edge for a Garmin computer (sold separately) to complete the cockpit of this high-performance bicycle.
A Shimano Di2 charging cable is included with the purchase of this bicycle.
Aero road. Those two words carry plenty of weight these days. A sleek bike that practically encourages solo breakaways. Other aero road bikes have been saddled with a punishing ride quality and pudgy numbers on the scale. But not the Madone SLR Disc.
Trek took a close look at the previous-gen Madone 9-series and looked at what worked and what could be improved upon. The new Madone SLR bikes are all constructed of Trek's premiere 800 Series OCLV carbon fiber, allowing the engineers free reign when designing in aerodynamics, lightness and torsional strength. The overall shape of the current (and previous) Madone road bicycles comes from a demanding field in aerodynamic design: Le Mans sportscars. When long-tail racing cars proved to be unstable in crosswinds, designeers lopped off some of the tapered rear end of the cars. They discovered that the change had almost no effect on top speed, but helped to keep overall weight down as well as improve control in gusty crosswinds. Cool, huh? At speed, the airflow rejoins behind the car as if the bodywork was still there. Called Kammtail Virtual Foil (or KVF), the Madone's shape takes full advantage, making the bike a much lighter and more controllable machine.
From top to bottom, the Madone SLR takes well-thought details and produces a super-clean bike that shows almost nothing to the wind. By submerging all the cables and hoses inside the multi-piece handlebar, stem, frame and fork, the Madone SLR's drag number stay very low. An aperture in the left chainstay for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor eliminates the need for clumsy zip-ties. Even the adjustable 3S chain keeper got an aero makeover. Tires up to 28mm can be fitted, allowing the bike to get even more comfortable over rough and choppy pavement.
All this might sound like the kind of stuff Trek's competitors would do when trying to build a copy of the Madone SLR. But there's one thing they can't build into their bikes: adjustable IsoSpeed. The previous generation Madone SLR took the world by storm with an IsoSpeed rear seat mast, making it more comfortable than plenty of road bikes in general, not just other aero road machines. With this Madone's adjustable IsoSpeed component found under the top tube, the bike can adjusted for different rider weights, different road surfaces and expected ride quality in general. Like the Domane SLR, two allen wrenches are all that's needed to do a roadside adjustment in seconds. The IsoSpeed unit also features a reduced rebound by 13%, keeping the bike from feeling "bouncy" over repeated impacts. A fresher rider will race the last mile of any event better than a tired rider. IsoSpeed just makes sense for everyone.
SRAM Rival eTap AXS components are a brilliant pairing to the cutting edge technology found on the Madone SLR frameset. The drivetrain is completely wireless, and shifts are literally lightning quick. The eTap AXS batteries are rechargeable, with a single charge lasting for about 500 miles, depending on usage. The wireless drivetrain can be used with a smartphone app to determine battery charge levels and customize shifting. A 48/35T alloy SRAM Rival crankset works in tandem with a SRAM XG-1250 10-36T cassette, bringing a very wide gearing range to the Madone SLR 6. Trek made sure the Madone SLR 6 was a capable bike in the hills, not just the flats. The SRAM Rival crankset is equipped with a spindle-based Quarq power meter, allowing the rider to ride, train and race with a better understanding of their overall fitness.
Bontrager supplies the Aeolus Pro 51 wheelset, slicing even more drag off the Madone SLR 6. A 51mm carbon fiber rim with a Dual Directional Design (or 3D, for short) profile is not only fast, but resists crosswinds better than conventional wheels. A 23mm rim internal width allows tires to corner better. The wheels are tubeless-ready, allowing a wider range of tire choices. Alloy DT Swiss 350 centerlock hubs are smooth, reliable and boast 18-point positive engagement. Bontrager's 700x25c R3 Hard-Case Lite tires corner and sprint with the best. SRAM's Rival flat-mount hydraulic disc brakes boast excellent stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine.
The Madone SLR 6's peripheral components haven't been forgotten. Bontrager's Aeolus Elite saddle is designed to be comfortable when the rider is in a more aggressive, aerodynamic position. The blade-style OCLV carbon fiber Madone road handlebar and Madone stem offer a wider range of adjustability than a one-piece bar-and-stem combo unit.
A SRAM battery charger is included with the purchase of this bicycle.
This is Trek's answer to the question: Who makes a world-beating cross-country mountain bike that can handle marathon-length events?
The Top Fuel 9.9 could be the best full-suspension XC racer on the planet. It's absurdly light at less than 25 pounds (!!) when set up tubeless. The main frame and rear suspension arms are all made from Trek's exclusive OCLV Mountain carbon fiber, bringing incredible strength to handle every pedal stroke over rough trails. Every aspect of the main frame has been optimised for high performance without adding pounds. The frame's Straight Shot downtube eliminates plenty of material while enhancing torsional strength. Don't worry, the fork crown won't whack the down tube during a crash, thanks to a clever Knock Block steerer stop at the top of the head tube. Out back, the Active Braking Pivot (or ABP) full suspension geometry isolates braking forces from suspension movement, so every gnarly downhill hairpin won't feel like a major test of your riding talents. Control Freak internal cable routing, a tapered head tube, and downtube-mounted Carbon Armor are examples of the details that make every Trek Top Fuel mountain bike a clear leader in XC racing machines.
The air-adjustable RockShox Pike Ultimate suspension fork helps to tame rock gardens and challenging course features with ease. 120mm of travel soaks up impacts, while a bar-mounted lockout twist-lever shuts off the shock when charging along hardpan and jeep doubletrack. The rear shock is also a RockShox Deluxe Ultimate unit, bringing 115mm of travel and the aforementioned lockout function.
Trek chose SRAM's best off-road drivetrain for the Top Fuel 9.9: 12-speed Eagle AXS. Yes, this is the wireless shifting SRAM drivetrain for mountain bikes. Powered by a rechargeable Li-Ion battery, every shift is perfect. Every. Single. Time. The XX1 AXS rear derailleur can handle hard pedaling loads and poorly-timed shifts with ease. Plus, there's no shift cable or housing to get nasty in messy conditons! Cool, huh? A 10-50T SRAM Eagle rear cassette boasts a massive gearing range for roller-coaster trails and courses. Power delivery is done through a carbon fiber SRAM XX1 Eagle crankset with a single 32T direct-mount chainring.
Bontrager supplies the tubeless-ready OCLV carbon fiber Kovee Pro 30 wheelset. The 30mm-wide internal rim width allows the tire to spread out for better trail contact, enhancing lateral grip and reduce rolling resistance. Boost110/148 thru-axle hubs improve lateral rigidity, while a Rapid Drive 108 rear freehub makes pedaling response lightning-quick. With a total wheelset weight of only 1500 grams (without tires or cassette), the Top Fuel 9.9 will leap out of corners and hairpins like a jackrabbit! ?Bontrager's 29x2.4" XR3 Team Issue tires are also tubeless-ready, bringing bags of grip to any trail surface. SRAM Level Ultimate hydraulic disc brakes boast excellent stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine (or mud).
The Top Fuel 9.9's RockShox Reverb AXS dropper post is just as high-performance as the rest of the bike. It's wireless, using a bar-mounted remote lever for clean installation, and uses the same rechargeable battery as the SRAM XX1 Eagle AXS rear derailleur. A carbon-railed Montrose Pro saddle, Kovee Pro stem, OCLV carbon fiber Line Pro handlebar complete this world-beating off-road racer.
A SRAM eTap AXS battery charger is included with the purchase of this bicycle.
This bicycle can be ordered through Trek's Project One program. Tens of thousands of color and component configurations can be ordered, making the Top Fuel 9.9 AXS uniquely your own. Please call for details.
The current generation Madone has set a very high standard for aero road bikes. Now all that performance can be had for less...
Trek's current Madone has helped pro racers win some of the most prestigious victories in professional racing, including the 2019 world road championships in Yorkshire. Attaining that technological masterpiece is not quite as expensive as it used to be. Welcome to the Madone SL 7 eTap for 2021.
The Madone has been acclaimed as a brilliant aero bike, with very low drag to cheat the wind. The original Madone SLR Disc also boasts incredibly good ride quality -not just for an aero bike, but for road bikes in general- due to an adjustable IsoSpeed seat mast. This clever element of the Madone SLR is also found on the Madone SL's frame. It uses a slider on the base of the L-shaped IsoSpeed structure under the top tube. By moving the slider forward or backward, the seatmast can be made stiffer or softer, depending on rider weight, expected riding surfaces or ride distance. Triathletes will appreciate this, knowing that a smooth ride will benefit them during the run. Century riders will also smile, knowing the bike will still be smooth on broken tarmac. Racers will like IsoSpeed since the freshest rider is most likely the fastest in the final sprint to the finish.
Very light weight is still part of the Madone SL's attributes, thanks to Trek's exclusive 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber used throughout the frame. By using newer flat-mount disc brake installation and an H1.5 fit geometry, the frame of the Madone SL 7 eTap cuts weight in the right places. Like the current Madone SLR,Kammtail Virtual Foil (or KVF) tube shaping in used throughout the Madone SL's frame and fork, making the bike one of the slipperiest road bicycles today. The flattened trailing edge of the frame and fork tubes (the "Kammtails") make the bike far more resistant to gusty crosswinds compared to a classic teardrop shape, as well as cutting weight off the bike. An aperture in the left chainstay for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) cuts aero drag by eliminated the need for clumsy zip-ties. Even the 3S chain keeper at the crankset has been given the low-drag treatment. A stout BB90 bottom bracket anchors the crankset for flex-free power delivery with every pedal stroke.Madone SL 7 Disc eTap combines advanced aerodynamic performance and smooth ride quality with the quick, reliable shifting of a wireless electronic drivetrain. It's light, fast, and incredibly sleek, and it comes with aero carbon wheels, a road-smoothing IsoSpeed decoupler, and a SRAM Force power meter. It's right for you if... You're serious about speed and performance, and you want the advantage of crisp wireless electronic shifting, lightweight carbon wheels, and the all-weather stopping power hydraulic disc brakes provide.

Welcome to the new Top Fuel for 2022. More versatile, more travel, more fun!
The Top Fuel platform got a redesign for 2022, with an aim towards improving the bike's prowess on technical trails. A slightly longer top tube and slacker head angle gives the Top Fuel a more confident feel on technical descents and rough trail features. With the Top Fuel 9.8, Trek still uses their world-class OCLV Mountain carbon fiber in the frame and rear triangle, ensuring very light weight and high strength. Steep inclines and twisty singletrack remain the Top Fuel 9.8's playground.
Trek's proprietary Active Braking Pivot (or ABP) rear suspension has a unique design that isolates braking forces from the action of the rear suspension. The concentric rear pivot allows the shock to work smoothly in all conditions, from washboard hardpan to stair-step descents. The ABP suspension's lower front pivot is also in line with the top of the chainring, eliminating any wasted energy during hard pedaling. With rear suspension travel bumped up to 120mm, the Top Fuel 9.8 is more capable than ever. An air-adjustable RockShox Deluxe Ultimate RCT shock features adjustable rebound for perfect fine tuning for different trail conditions, riding styles and rider weights. The lower shock mount is also a reversible Mino Link. By flipping the Mino Link, the geometry of the Top Fuel 9.8 can be changed, depending on rider preferences and trail conditions. The rear shock works though an ultra-stiff magnesium rocker link that helps keep the rear suspension working smoothly.
The details found on every carbon fiber full suspension bike from Trek are still there.
-A tapered head tube that anchors the suspension fork, improving handling and front braking -Oversized down tube with Internal Frame Storage and BITS tool roll -Control Freak internal cable routing for rattle-free riding and easy cable servicing -Downtube guard to deflect gravel spray off the front tire -An updated Knock Block headset that prevents the handlebar from smashing the top tube
Up front, an air-adjustable RockShox SID Select+ suspension fork does handling duties. 120mm of travel matches the Top Fuel's rear suspension, while a 15mm thru-axle adds an extra dash of razor-sharpness to every technical trail.
Shimano's proven 12-speed Deore XT components make up the drivetrain of the Top Fuel 9.8. The 12-speed shifter, clutch-equipped rear derailleur, 30T single-ring crankset, 10-51T cassette and even the chain are Shimano XT components. The RapidFire shifter boasts a dual-action lever that shifts to a smaller cog with either a push or a pull. That massive cassette is a mixture of aluminum and steel assembled in a lightweight package and backed by a flex-resistant 1-piece spider. The 30T chainring is a direct-mount unit, keeping overall crankset weight low.
Bontrager's Line Elite 30 OCLV carbon fiber tubeless wheels make for brilliant rolling stock on the Top Fuel 9.8. A 29mm internal rim width offers a meaty platform for the bike's Bontrager XR 4 Team Issue 29x2.4" tires. The thru-axle rear hub sports a Rapid Drive 108 cassette that allows for much faster engagement when pedaling out of hairpins and uphill curves. Reigning in speed is the job of Shimano's Deore XT 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes. Yes, just like on a MotoGP bike, more pistons make for better braking performance.
What would a full-suspension mount bike be without a dropper post? The Top Fuel 9.8 is equipped with a Line Elite dropper post that gets the saddle out of the way with the push of the bar-mounted remote lever. A Bontrager Arvada saddle sits atop the dropper post, bringing a comfy perch to the bike. The Bontrager Line Pro OCLV carbon fiber handlebar has a 35mm clamp diameter, and is mated to an alloy Bontrager Line Pro Knock Block stem.
The Top Fuel family brings World Cup performance to you, making every inch of trail go by that much faster.
The Active Braking Pivot -or ABP- rear suspension geometry and Full Floater shock mount makes the Top Fuel a true standout in full-suspension cross country mountain bikes. Instant reaction to changing surfaces and terrain, as well as zero shock compression during hard braking make the Top Fuel a winner in the arena of cross country race machines. 115mm of suspension travel soaks up rough singletrack with aplomb, letting you concentrate on upcoming trail features (and fellow racers). Adding all that race-bred tech to an OCLV Mountain carbon fiber frame elevates the Top Fuel 9.8 beyond its competitors, ensuring feather-light weight and incredible torsional strength. Trek's frame geometry has been proven time and again during cross-country races around the world, and that geometry is found on the Top Fuel as well. A tapered head tube adds an extra dash of razor-sharpness to the Top Fuel's handling, while a press-fit PF92 bottom bracket anchors the SRAM GX crankset for flex-free power delivery. Control Freak internal cable routing keeps the Top Fuel 9.8 looking clean and sleek with no rattles, while carbon armor under the down tube resists flying gravel and debris. The Top Fuel's overall geometry can be tweaked slightly by rotating the Mino Link suspension pivot at the top of the rear stays. Want a more relaxed geometry on the Top Fuel 9.8? simply rotate the Mino Link to get a slacker head angle for a more stable feel. The oversized Straight Shot down tube adds torsional strength without adding weight. The bottom of the down tube is protected from spinning fork crowns by a clever Knock Block keyed headset.
Out back, the air-adjustable RockShox SID Luxe Ultimate shock delivers outstanding performance from washboard trails to hard landings. The Top Fuel 9.8's suspension fork is also a RockShox SID Select+ unit with 120mm of travel. RockShox suspension technology helps tackle rock gardens and root "fun houses" without breaking a sweat. Air adjustability allows a wider range of rider weights and riding skills to get a perfect setup for nearly every trail. Both shocks boast a lockout feature that can be activated with a single DropLock bar-mounted lever.
SRAM's 12-speed GX Eagle components are found throughout the drivetrain of the Top Fuel 9.8, including the shifter, rear derailleur, carbon fiber 32T single-ring crankset, 10-52T cassette and even the chain. Worry-free operation and high performance with every shift is built into every GX Eagle component. Bontrager's Kovee Elite 30 wheels are built from OCLV Mountain carbon fiber, bringing very light weight and impressive durability to every trail. The 29mm wide rims allow the tire's "footprint" to spread out for improved traction and lateral grip. A Rapid Drive freehub brings lightning-fast pedaling engagement with every turn of the crankset. They're tubeless ready, and are wrapped with meaty 29x2.40" Bontrager XR3 Team Issue tires. SRAM G2 RS 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes boast excellent stopping power and lever feedback for confident speed control in all conditions, rain or shine (or mud).
A Bontrager Montrose Elite saddle sit atop a Bontrager Line Elite dropper post. A bar-mounted lever cleverly stacked with the lockout lever allows you to get he saddle out of the way on steep descents with the press of a lever. An OCLV carbon fiber Line Pro handlebar and alloy Kovee Pro stem completes this capable trail conqueror.
The Trek Checkpoint SL 7 eTap isn't just a newly-equipped version of last year's machine. The Checkpoint SL frame got a full redesign! Read on for more details...
The Checkpoint SL models of the previous generation were overwhelmingly popular with our customers. Sprightly handling, butter-smooth feel, and practical mounting points made it one of the best gravel bikes on the market. Trek decided to appeal to the adventurous riders for the 2022 season by redesigning the geometry slightly and make the Checkpoint even more useful. Trek used their proven 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber in the new frameset, producing a light and strong backbone for the Checkpoint SL 7 eTap. The overall frame shaping improves torsional strength, while keeping overall weight low. Trek's exclusive IsoSpeed technology is found at the top tube/seat tube juncture, delivering a very smooth ride quality. The threaded T47 bottom bracket, tapered head tube and thru-axle dropouts enhance the bike's torsional strength further, improving power delivery and overall handling. The geometry changed for the 2022 Checkpoint, with a 2cm longer top tube (and shorter stem) that bestows more stable handling. Mountain bikes designed with similar "progressive" geometry are far more adept in twisty and technical terrain without feeling awkward. Descending washed-out fire roads can be done with increased confidence. Mounts for racks, bottle cages and fenders are still there, but Trek added an internal storage compartment in the down tube for tools and a repair kit. There are bottle mounts on the fork blades as well. The underside of the down tube boasts a polymer Carbon Armor shield for defending against flying debris from the front tire. Internal cable routing keeps the Checkpoint's hydraulic hoses tucked away from abrasive environments. There's room for even wider 700x45c tires for really challenging trails and surfaces.
The 12-speed SRAM Force eTap AXS drivetrain adds an extra piece of technology to an already high performance bike: Wireless shifting! By eliminating any wiring or cables between the shifters and derailleurs, the rider has one less thing to deal with during truly sloppy rides and adventures. SRAM's wireless eTap AXS shifting is literally lightning-quick. Every. Single. Time. Shifting under hard pedaling loads isn't a problem anymore, and the battery life between charges is usually between 500-600 miles. The lithium-ion batteries mounted on each derailleur can be removed and charged off the bike, making storage more convenient. This SRAM Force eTap AXS group has a 43/30T Force crankset paired with a 10-36T SRAM XG-1270 cassette, delivering a very wide gearing range. Ugly terrain? Plenty of gear on board? The Checkpoint SL 7 eTap is ready.
Wheels can make a big difference to any bicycle, and Trek equipped with Checkpoint SL 7 eTap with a high performance set: Bontrager's Aeolus Pro 3V's. With tubeless-ready OCLV carbon fiber rims, bladed straight-pull spokes and impressively low weight, the Pro 3V's help you scramble over surfaces rough and smooth. The D3 (Dual Directional Design) rim profile resists crosswinds while slicing through headwinds with ease. A 25mm interior rim width allows tires (as narrow as 32mm) to spread out for improved grip. The rear hub features a Rapid Drive 108 cassette freehub that engages with nearly zero free-play; a useful bonus when half-pedaling across rocky creek beds and broken campground trails. Bontrager also supplies the 700x40c GR1 tubeless-ready tires for outstanding grip on rough hardpan and gravel. SRAM's hydraulic Force disc brakes helps keep speed reigned in, no matter the weather.
Bontrager also supplies the carbon fiber seatpost, P3 Verse Comp saddle, accessory-ready alloy Pro stem, and alloy short-reach GR Elite handlebar, finishing off this high tech adventure machine.
A SRAM eTap AXS battery charger is included with the purchase of this bicycle.
The Emonda SLR is one of Trek's flagship machines. Just pick it up, and you'll know...
Using absurdly, stupifyingly light 700 Series carbon fiber is just a small part of why the Emonda SLR is such an incredible bike. The frame engineers at Trek knew that the right combination of different qualities of carbon fiber can make a bike perform effortlessly. Immense torsional strength is needed to help with power transfer and precise handling. Measurable frame compliance can take the edge off rough pavement and keep the rider fresher for longer, making the difference in a final sprint to the finish line. Several different qualities of carbon fiber are used to produce these seemingly confliciting performance characteristics. When Trek uses their Optimum Compaction, Low Void (or OCLV) manufacturing process, they reduce the need for excess resin in the frame, keeping overall weight low and improving quality control.
They could use garden-variety frame elements seen on bikes around the world, but Trek knew they could make a bike better. A Ride Tuned no-cut seatmast and cap still allows for plenty of saddle adjustment, but the seatmast itself adds an extra dash of smoothness to the ride quality. It also cuts more weight off the Emonda SLR's frame, especially at the top of the bike where it counts more for out-of-the-saddle sprinters and uphill efforts. A press-fit BB90 bottom bracket anchors the crankset better than a thread-in unit while still keeping weight low. Adding a tapered head tube allowed the engineers to build an oversized down tube that enhances the frame's torsional strength while still keeping weight down. Direct-mount brake caliper installation improves frame strength as well as reducing weight. An aperture in the left chainstay is meant for a Bontrager DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor, eliminating the need for clumsy zip-ties. Internal cable routing keeps the Emonda SLR looking clean and sleek, too. The more upright H2 fit of this Emonda SLR allows a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to get comfortable.
Shimano's 11-speed Ultegra R8000 components are found throughout this Emonda SLR, including the dual-control levers, derailleurs, 50/34T compact crankset and direct-mount rim brakes. An 11-32T Shimano cassette offers a wide gearing range to help on fearsome inclines. Long life, precise operation and lightning-quick shifting are the hallmarks of Shimano's performance-oriented Ultegra component group. Bontrager's tubeless-ready alloy Paradigm Comp wheelset and 700x28c R3 Hard-Case Lite tires add easy acceleration and a smooth feel.
This might be the best entry level to a carbon fiber road machine with electronic shifting. Trek's Emonda SL 6 eTap shares the same Kammtail Virtual Foil (or KVF) aero frame shape as its big brother SLR version. This feature alone will save you a minute over 25 miles compared to the previous Emonda SL version. But the reason Trek built the Emonda is all about lightness...
With a sub-19 pound build, the Emonda SL 6 eTap will make every hill just a bit easier to tackle. Trek's 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber is a proven material to build outstanding performance road bicycles. A rock-solid T47 bottom bracket ensures no energy is wasted with every pedal stroke; perfect for attacking steep inclines and sprinting away from the peloton. Internal brake hosing and a chainstay aperture for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) keeps the Emonda SL 6 looking clean and sleek.
SRAM's wireless Rival eTap AXS component group lowers the threshold for every rider looking for lightning-quick shifting, precise operation and a wide gearing range.Emonda SL 6 Disc has all the advantages of an ultralight carbon road bike, with the added benefit of aero tube shaping that will make you faster on flats and up climbs, too.

The Domane SLR is Trek's ultimate expression of an endurance bike platform. Using Trek's proprietary 600 Series OCLV carbon fiber, the frame of the Domane SLR can help you fly uphill, respond instantly in a sprint, bring confident handling in high-speed turns and descents and soak up harsh pavement. But there's more to the Domane SLR 8 than just clever carbon fiber. Read on...
An endurance road bicycle should not only be light and quick, but also comfortable. A fresher rider can push the pedals longer and also be more mentally alert to avoid accidents and navigation errors. The Domane SLR 8 boasts a technology exclusive to Trek bicycles: IsoSpeed. By allowing the bike to flex vertically under the rider better than any other endurance road bike made today, the Domane SLR is the clear leader in the category. The rear IsoSpeed unit on the Domane SLR is adjustable, allowing the bike to be set up better for a wider range of rider weights, ride quality needs and expected changed in riding surfaces. A single allen wrench is all that's required to move the slider at the back of the seat tube up or down, changing the compliance of the no-cut Ride Tuned seatmast. Cool, huh? Up front, there's an IsoSpeed unit at the top of the head tube, giving the handlebars extra compliance when traversing rough and choppy pavement.
If the bike didn't fit well, all this means nothing. Trek built every Domane bicycle with Endurance fit and geometry, allowing a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to get comfortable. A tall head tube and slightly lower bottom bracket in a given frame size allows less flexible (and shorter-legged) riders to fit with fewer component swaps and adjustments.
The whole frame of the Domane SLR is built around effective transmission of the rider's power into forward motion. Called Power Transfer Construction, the Domane's distinctive frame shape -especially at the down tube- resists torsional flex. Attacking an 18% grade in the big ring? The Domane SLR will feel rock-solid with every turn of the pedals. A press-fit BB90 bottom bracket, 12mm thru-axles and robust chainstays add an extra dash of strength for efficient power transfer. The Domane SLR 8's fork is also built from Trek's exclusive OCLV carbon fiber, and is installed into a tapered head tube improving handling during high-speed turns and descents. An adjustable chain keeper prevents roadside stops and greasy fingers when traversing railway crossings and pavement transitions. A DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) gets an aperture in the left chainstay for a sleek installation without the use of clumsy zip-ties. Vanishing fender mounts and room for wide tires (up to 32mm) add versatility to the Domane SLR. Flat-mount disc brake caliper installation reduces total frame weight and improves brake lever feedback.
Shimano's 11-speed Ultegra R8000 components were a perfect choice for the Domane SLR 6 Disc, delivering outstanding performance, reliability and long service life. The dual-control levers, front and rear derailleurs, 50/34T compact crankset, 11-32T cassette, hydraulic disc brakes and even the chain are all Ultegra components designed to work in concert for precise operation. Upgrades from previous generation Ultegra component groups include: A Shadow-style rear derailleur that requires less hand strength to upshift, a more comfortable lever hood texture, and a tapered front derailleur cage to accommodate wider tires.
The Domane SLR 6's Bontrager Paradigm Comp wheels deliver excellent performance and a smooth ride quality. They're tubeless-ready and feature a 21mm interior rim width to allow a tire to spread out to improve traction and ride quality. Shimano Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes deliver outstanding lever feel and feedback. Bontrager supplies the saddle, accessory-ready alloy stem and alloy handlebar, completing this century-ready performance machine.
When the first-gen Emonda SLR appeared, jaws dropped everywhere. It was light. Like, science-fiction light.
Trek has somehow managed to make a lighter version of the Emonda's SLR frame, but can run disc brakes.
Let that soak in for a second. The disc-brake-ready version of the Emonda SLR frame weighs in at an absurd 665 grams for a 56cm frame (H1 fit). The disc brake fork is also an all-carbon unit, and weighs only 350 grams. That's actually lighter than the previous-gen caliper-brake version. How did the mad scentists at Trek in Waterloo do it?! They started with a revamped version of their in-house 700 Series OCLV carbon fiber material. The qualities of this year's 700 Series OCLV carbon is different due to changes in raw material, layup schedule and resin formulation. With the aid of in-house digital prototyping, the Emonda SLR's frame design also went through refinements from stem to stern. The hourglass-shaped top tube and stouter chainstays are the more obvious clues to the new Emonda SLR's changes, while 12mm thru-axles add torsional anchor points for better power delivery and handling. The tapered head tube and BB90 bottom bracket are still there, but they function better with the improved frame architecture and material "recipe". Aerodynamics didn't enter into the equation; only lightness and ride quality mattered when the Emonda SLR Disc was under development. Internal cable routing keeps the Emonda SLR Disc looking sleek, while an aperture in the left chainstay for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) eliminates the need for clumsy zip-ties. The ride quality was improved with the new 700 Series OCLV, giving the Emonda SLR a smoother feel over rough pavement.
Equipping the Emonda SLR with Shimano's excellent 11-speed Ultegra R8000 components was an easy choice. Known for light weight, precise functionality, and overall durability, Ultegra components just work well for racers and recreational riders alike. The dual-control STI levers require less effort to shift than the previous generation, and still boast an adjustable lever reach for smaller hands. The tucked-in Shadow-style rear derailleur can handle much larger cassettes while shifting better under hard pedaling loads. The front derailleur's toggle-pivot design also requires less effort to operate. An alloy Ultegra 50/34T crankset and 11-32T Ultegra cassette bring a wide gearing range to every challenging ride. Hydraulic disc brakes aren't just for riding in the rain; better lever feedback and improved stopping power makes for safer braking in any conditions, wet or dry.
High performance can be found in the Emonda SLR's rolling stock as well. Bontrager's alloy Paradigm Comp wheels are disc-specific, and are tubeless-ready. They're shod with Bontrager's R3 Hard-Case Lite tires. Bontrager also supplies the saddle, accessory-ready alloy Blendr stem and alloy road handlebar.
The 50cm example in black/gunmetal we have is an H1 fit, rather than the more upright H2 fit.
Could this be the one bike to rule them all?
The Madone SL 6 seems to be a favorite for many riders looking to upgrade for lots of reasons. From recreational riders to triathletes to crit racers, many are looking for a machine that does everything well. And at a reasonable price. When engineering the Madone SL 6, Trek started with their proprietary 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber, ensuring very light weight and impressive strength. Kammtail Virtual Foil (or KVF) frame shaping is used throughout the Madone SL 6, bestowing eye-opening drag numbers while keeping overall frame weight very low. Aero road bikes are frequently criticized for handling like a sailboat in gusty crosswinds, but the Kammtail frame shape presents a much smaller target to the wind, no matter what direction or angle. Internal cable and hose routing gives the Madone SL 6 a very clean, uncluttered profile to the wind. There's even an aperture for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor in the left chain stay (sold separately), eliminating the need for clumsy zip-ties. The overall geometry of the Madone SL 6 is Trek's H1.5 fit, allowing for a more aggressive rider posture. Madone SL 6 Disc gives you the advanced aerodynamic performance and all-around ride quality of our ultimate race bike at a great value. It has aero wheels, a road-smoothing IsoSpeed decoupler, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, and a sleek look that screams for speed. It's right for you if... You want to go really freakin' fast. You know exactly what it's like to be off the front, battling the wind in a solo break, and want all the free speed you can get. You also know a great value when you see it and appreciate the fit and customization options of a standard bar and stem and the all-weather stopping power of disc brakes. Why you'll love it - Adjustable Top Tube IsoSpeed lets you adjust compliance to your preference, and it's damped with an elastomer so it rebounds in a smooth, controlled, stable motion - All the aero advantages of Madone, plus the added capability to clip-on aero bars for triathlons and time trials - Disc brakes offer better braking performance and extra clearance for wider, more stable tires - The Madone seatpost has an integrated mount for the Bontrager Flare RT tail light
