Trek’s 10.25-pound Emonda

Direct-mount brakes, a design which was originally developed with Shimano, decrease weight. The threads are molded into fork and seat stays, reducing the number of parts and reducing redundant material. Bontrager's first version, found on the Madone, were not what we'd call excellent. The new twin-cam design looks more refined. Photo: Caley Fretz | VeloNews.com
