Emonda ALR 4 is a lightweight aluminum road bike at an incredible value. But don't mistake it for the kind of ride you'll get from value-minded competitors at this price. Shaped tubes, Invisible Weld Technology, and a lightweight frame that's perfect for new riders and racers alike give Emonda ALR the looks and handling of carbon at the price of alloy.
It's right for you if...
You're a value-minded rider looking for a lightweight race bike, a whole lot of performance for your dollar, and a quality ride you won't immediately outgrow.
The tech you get
Emonda ALR 4 is more than the sum of its parts. Yes, it has a full Shimano Tiagra groupset, 20 speeds, a carbon fork, powerful direct mount rim brakes, and a lightweight 300 Series Alpha Aluminum frame with shaped tubes—but its real genius is in its handling and ride quality.
The final word
Emonda ALR 4 is the most affordable Emonda in the family, but it handles like a far more expensive bike and has the looks to match. It's an extremely capable race bike at a great value.
