We demo Trek's top of the line Women's Specific Design (WSD) Emonda and Silque so you can experience all the different features on the market right now.
|Experience the luxurious ride quality and effortless speed of Trek's Silque SLX. Handmade from Trek's 600 Series OCLV size-specific carbon, it's light, stiff, and playful, and with Trek's IsoSpeed decoupler, it's compliant too. The women's ride-tuned geometry gives you confident handling for quick accelerations as well as long, sweeping descents. An Ultegra drivetrain dishes out the easy, precise shifting that Shimano is renowned for, and Bontrager's Race X Lite wheels are wrapped with 25c tires for the perfect combination of speed, impressive ride quality, and low rolling resistance. What's more, Trek keeps the Silque SLX firmly in the featherweight class with a carbon bar and seatmast.|
|The IsoSpeed Decoupler allows the seat tube to rotate independently from the top-tube-to-seatstay junction, increasing vertical compliance without compromising pedaling efficiency. It's already been proven with wins in races over the toughest cobbles in Europe.||The 3S chain-keeper is integrated directly into the frame. It's an elegant solution that prevents the chain coming off on rough roads and under hard shifts. It lets you make any shift you want at any time without worrying.|
|The Silque's internal cable routing offers precision shifting and positive braking in all conditions. It's also aerodynamic, compatibile with modern drivetrains, and it protects the cables to reduce wear and tear and maintenance.||The E2 head tube tapers from 1 1/2 to 1-1/8 inch and is wider side to side than front to back. This minimizes weight, maximizes power transfer and improves cornering. Result: a more powerful and confident ride.|
The Emonda SL 5 WSD uses all the tricks and tech that Trek is well known for: a BB90 bottom bracket and E2 head tube for stiffness and handling, internal cable routing for a clean look, and their super-light, ride-tuned seatmast. Never one to rest on their laurels, Trek whittled down the full-carbon frame to just 1,050 grams and tweaked the specific layup of the carbon and the geometry to give it a ride quality that others only hope to achieve. As if that wasn't enough, you get amazing value with a full 11-speed Shimano 105 group, tubeless-ready Bontrager wheels, and full cockpit of Bonty parts. This is no trick, it's simply a ride that has to be ridden to be believed.

|Trek's Silque features a unique bottom bracket that's 90mm wide (traditional ones are 68mm wide). This wide bottom bracket lets Trek build the frame with larger tubes for increased power transfer. Plus, the BB90 is machined so that the bearings can be placed directly into the frame saving weight due to fewer parts, ensuring additional pedaling efficiency and simplifying maintenance and repair.|
For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, tapered head tubes (see image, on left) and forks pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2 inch, see image, on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8 inch). This combination sheds weight compared to straight 1 1/2-inch systems, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to straight 1 1/8-inch systems. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.
