An ultralight, round tube road bike is a bit like a Victoria sponge cake; really simple ingredients but very difficult to create perfection. The EmondaSLR frame gets pretty close to perfection and is one of the standout bikes we have ever ridden. It is wonderfully light, changes direction as if responding to telepathic instructions and irons out road imperfections far better than you could imagine. And this particular P1 Emonda SLR disc has a stunning specification to complement the customer’s superb selection of paint scheme. An overused phrase perhaps but in this case, this bike really does deserve the label of ‘truly awesome’.
