Hybrid buyer's guide

Hybrid bikes fill many functions. They’re great for fitness, commuting, adventuring, recreation, and more. Plus, each bike is designed for a comfortable and fun riding experience.

Every Trek Hybrid bike is versatile and can be ridden on a variety of surfaces, but each model has specific strengths. Some are especially fast on pavement and others are especially comfortable on dirt paths and trails. Several Trek Hybrid bikes have electric bike counterparts, which are designated by a “+” symbol after the model name. These e-bikes give you the same comfort and performance, with an extra boost of a power from a Bosch pedal-assist system.

To narrow your search when you’re choosing a hybrid bike, you should consider how and where you want to ride.
