Trek rewrote the rule book with their Emonda S 5. Fast, light, and absolute joy to ride, the Emonda is crafted from Trek's vaunted OCLV carbon. Trek's carbon wizards whittled the frame down to just 1,220 grams, and gave it a ride quality that makes every outing simply better. Fast? Shimano and Bontrager have that covered with a complete 105 11-speed group powered by wide range, compact cranks and tubeless-ready wheels. Ditch the tube, say goodbye to flats and feel the road beneath you like never before. Last but not least, the full Bonty cockpit follows the light and fast theme perfectly. This is a lightweight, full-carbon bike that rides like nothing else with legit components and costs around 2k. We don't know how Trek did it, but we're glad they did, and you will be too.
