Vincenzo Nibali's Trek Emonda SLR 9 eTap Disc - Gallery

Two years into his Trek-Segafredo contract and Vincenzo Nibali has fully embraced the disc-brake concept after sticking primarily with rim brakes while racing for his previous team, Bahrain-Merida. The Italian has been using the disc-brake-only Trek Émonda SLR since its global launch in June last year but has experienced mixed success on the racing front including a disappointing 2020 Giro d'Italia where he finished 7th, over eight minutes behind winner Tao Geoghegan Hart.
