2019 Trek Emonda ALR 5

Emonda ALR 5 is fast, light, responsive, and balanced—everything a quality aluminum road bike should be. But it also has the sleek looks of a far more expensive carbon bike. Upgrades on parts that make a big difference in performance, like the dependable Shimano 105 drivetrain, make it a smart choice for racing, club rides, and more.

It's right for you if...

You may be new to the road bike scene, but you know you've found your home. You want a dependable, lightweight race bike for longer, faster rides, and want a high-end ride quality at a great value.

The tech you get

A lightweight 300 Series Alpha Aluminum with shaped tubes and Invisible Weld Technology, a carbon fork that absorbs vibration from the road, powerful direct mount rim brakes, Bontrager Affinity Tubeless Ready wheels, and a full 2x11 Shimano 105 drivetrain for precise and dependable shifting.

The final word

It's both a great starting point for new riders and fully capable of seriously competitive group rides. Emonda ALR 5 is a lightweight aluminum ride at an amazing value, with a dependable Shimano drivetrain that will hold up for thousands of fast miles.

Why you'll love it

1 - Carbon looks and handling, alloy price point: Invisible Weld Technology and shaped tubes for sleek looks, light weight, and incredible handling
2 - It's a great-looking bike at a great value, and it performs way out of its league
3 - Like every Emonda, it's built to be the lightest and fastest in its class and backed by Trek's lifetime warranty
4 - It shares the geometry of our highest-end carbon Emonda race bikes, and it gives you a ride quality that stands up in every way to far more expensive carbon bikes
5 - Internal cable routing extends the life of your cables and adds to the bike's sleek look

      I previously rode a Cannondale r600 with a campy set (thanks Dad!). However, it was stolen one day (thanks LA!). I wanted to stick with aluminum bikes since they're a comfortable ride given the price. I did my research for Cannondale and just as I was about to pull the trigger, I saw this Trek in a local bike shop. A 3 minute mobile internet vetting process was good enough at that point. So I hopped on and rode it around in the lot and it felt smooth like warm butter. I've been using it for my work commute and it's amazing. The bike feels so nice that I've started to ride a lot more and I signed up for a 150mi ride through work. It's a great aluminum bike. The best part about this bike is the Shimano 105 set--it's complete. Most retailers will mix and match components, but the complete 105 set on here feels great. You really can't beat the price either.

          Just picked up this bike in the waterloo blue color scheme, which I personally find very stylish. It reminds me of a blue lamborghini, which leads me to my next point: this bike is FAST. Coming from a '13 Synapse 7, I must say this is leagues ahead with a full 105 groupset and super lightweight aluminum. This has a very smooth road feel, can hardly feel the bumps. The 105 shifting is as you'd expect, quick and performant, with a deep "click" to them. Huge upgrade from Sora shifters. Getting fitted in a few days to fine tune it to my body, can't wait to take this on many more rides!

              Ive had this bike, in the viper red Trek Factory Racing scheme, for a couple weeks now. I love everything about it right down to the satisfying "clunk" sound the derailleurs make when shifting. It handles extremely well and the 11 speed cassette feels flawless when running through the gears. The reach on this bike is spot on. The one gripe I have is the Paradigm Race saddle, it felt like I was sitting a plank of wood; I did change it out with my trusty Arione after a few rides (I gave it a chance!). Oh and did I mention, it only weighs 18 lbs? Pretty good for an aluminum frame!
