/
$8,499.99 Model 30691

Rail 9.7 is a long-travel carbon electric mountain bike that gets you to the fun stuff faster. It’s feels and rides just like our rowdiest trail bikes, and it's built with the same trail-specific tech. The difference is that the powerful new Bosch drive system zips up climbs so you can spend less time grinding and more time getting rad.

It's right for you if...

You’re looking for a super capable long-travel e-MTB that’s built to conquer techy runs and big drops just as cleanly as analog trail bikes. You want the light weight and responsive ride of an OCLV Mountain Carbon frame.

The tech you get

A light and durable OCLV Mountain Carbon main frame with carbon stays that fully encases a 625Wh battery for sleek looks and protection on the trail, a 160mm RockShox Yari RC fork, 150mm of rear travel with a RockShox Deluxe RL shock, a powerful new Bosch Performance Line CX 250W motor that assists up to 20 mph, and a Purion controller. A 1x12 SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain, Bontrager Line dropper post, Shimano 4-piston brakes, and Bontrager Line Comp 30 29er wheels.

The final word

Rail 9.7 hits the sweet spot of carbon performance and amazing value. It’s spec'd with quality trail-specific parts and a powerful Bosch drive system so you can send it through the rough stuff and motor right back up for another run.

favorite_borderWhy you'll love it

  1. The new, better-than-ever Bosch motor is smaller, lighter, and more efficient. It feels more natural while you’re pedaling, and has less drag when you’re not
  2. Rail shreds just as hard as its non-electric brethren, plus it powers you right back up the mountain—no shuttle or lift necessary
  3. Trek's Removable Integrated Battery (RIB) system looks great and is super user-friendly: it fully hides the battery in the frame for protection, makes it easy remove the battery without tools and lets you mount a water bottle cage
  4. It's equipped with an external charging port for easy charging on or off the bike
  5. Made with the same exclusive frame tech as Remedy and Slash, like Mino Link adjustable geometry, a Straight Shot down tube for extra stiffness, and Active Braking Pivot (ABP)


Features

New Bosch Performance Line CX

New Bosch Performance Line CX

The all-new Bosch Performance Line CX motor is lighter, smaller, and quieter than previous versions, for cleaner integration and more nimble handling. It's also more efficient so you can go farther on a single battery charge. Use the intelligent eMTB mode to automatically adjust the amount of assist to match the terrain. It's a set-and-forget mode that delivers just the right amount of power so you can focus on enjoying the ride.

Removable Integrated Battery

RIB is a one-piece battery and cover with a built-in handle that can easily be removed and re-installed in the frame with no tools and no hassle. It’s the most convenient way to remove your battery for transport, security, or just easier charging.

Active Braking Pivot

Active Braking Pivot allows our engineers to tune how the suspension reacts to acceleration and braking forces independently. That means you get more confident control when you need it most.
