This week we’re looking at disc and non-disc climbing options. Josh takes a look at the Trek Emonda SLR6 Disc whilst Jamie looks at the Factor O2.  

Factor 02, Shimano Dura Ace Di2, Size 56cm - £4,495 

The Factor O2 is a bespoke piece of British engineering - lightweight and incredibly stylish. This one is fitted out here with the ever impressive Dura Ace 9150 Di2 groupset as well as Black Inc wheels and finishing kit. All topped off with this Sunburnt Orange paint job. Whether it’s the setting sun over Stelvio or your local climb, you’re sure as hell going to look good on this thing.   

Trek Emonda SLR6 Disc, Shimano Ultegra, Size 56cm - £3,795 

The Emonda has always been at the top in lightweight climbing bikes. You can’t really ask for much more with this SLR 6 Disc, Ultegra R8020 groupset and Bontrager Paradgim wheels a solid build. Only thing you might need is a pair of sunglasses for the paint job!
