It's right for you if...
You’re an avid XC rider, and love the idea of an e-MTB that helps you push your limits without providing too much assistance. It's also great for those who want to get out and ride more, or keep pace with faster friends.
The tech you get
A lightweight OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with 60mm of travel, a 120mm RockShox SID Select+ fork, and Trek IsoStrut shock. A Fazua Evation motor and 250Wh battery that can assist up to 20 mph when it's on, and gives zero drag when it's off. A SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain, Bontrager Line Elite dropper post, and Kovee Pro 30 carbon wheels with a 108-tooth Rapid Drive rear hub for instant engagement.
The final word
E-Caliber flies down singletrack like an XC MTB—because it’s modeled after Supercaliber! And the Fazua assist is awesome for riders who are looking for just a little advantage that’ll help them do even more of what they love.
favorite_borderWhy you'll love it
- You get a helping hand from the motor on climbs and long rides, but it's a more natural-feeling assist that gives you an overall experience that's closer to riding an analog bike than a typical e-MTB
- The drive system, including the motor, is easily removable. Just take it out, pop on the included cover, and you’ll have a standard mountain bike that weighs 2.9kg less than before
- IsoStrut gives you just enough rear suspension for cross country traction and comfort with less weight and more efficiency
- Pivotless seat stays save on weight and actively bend to help soak up trail chatter
- Wider Kovee Pro 30 wheels provide better tire support so you can run lower pressure and get more traction

Fast and efficient
Fazua's lightweight drive system adds a punch of power when you need it, but rides and feels like a traditional bike when you don't. You won't feel much drag or resistance when you turn it off or pass the max level of assist. The system is also compatible with a smartphone app to let you check battery status and customize your ride.
Smart software for the trail
E-Caliber is equipped with intelligent Fazua software called BLACK PEPPER, which allows the motor to respond immediately as you start to pedal, delivers more power over a wider cadence range, and lets you customize your user settings.
Remove the motor and drivepack to save 6.4 lbs./2.9 kg on days when you don't need the boost. The included cover also turns the down tube into extra storage.
Carbon Care Wheel Loyalty Programme
Every set of Bontrager carbon wheels is backed by the Carbon Care Wheel Loyalty Programme. In the unlikely event that you damage your Bontrager carbon wheels within the first two years of ownership, we’ll repair or replace them for free.
Rapid Drive 108 rear hub
With 108 points of engagement, Rapid Drive gives you nearly instant acceleration instead of a clunky lag when you step on the pedals. You get smooth, immediate power to blast out of corners and hammer through the rough stuff. And that extra pedal ratchet adds control that can make all the difference when tackling a tricky climb.
Wider dropouts (110mm front, 148mm rear) give you the stiffness of a 27.5" wheel with all the benefits of a 29" wheel, and Boost148 in the rear lets you run wider tires and a larger chainring without affecting q-factor and pedaling efficiency.

Sizing & Tech
The charts below show our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8˝, for example, will fit on the same size bike. The best way to find your perfect fit is to consult the experts at your local retailer.
