Emonda SL 6 hits the sweet spot of value and performance in a carbon road bike. It has an ultralight OCLV Carbon frameset, a high-end Ultegra drivetrain, and a quality wheelset—all at an exceptional price. It's a race-worthy climbing hero and a serious option for a wide range of roadies.
It's right for you if...
You want the lightweight advantage on big climbs and long rides, and you want a performance return on every pedal stroke. You value ride quality and confidence in handling, and want a fast ride that's as well-suited to climbing as descending.
The tech you get
