Make more possible

Sometimes you’ll ride for fun, sometimes you’ll ride for fitness, and sometimes you’ll ride just to get from A to B. No matter how you spend time in the saddle, e-bikes offer unique solutions to the challenges of any ride. These bikes are all about possibility.

On- or off-road, they’re perfect for those who want to climb faster, explore more or just get there a bit faster.

Only e-bikes offer the flexibility to get in a workout, ride with a faster friend, haul a heavy load or simply cruise. Even if your ride varies from day to day, an electric bicycle always gives you the option to do and experience more.

Trek electric bikes amplify your own pedal power. Our e-bikes are pedal-assist bikes, which means that there’s a motor that helps the pedals turn when you’re riding, but no throttle like a motorcycle or dirt bike. When you’re pedalling, the e-bike gives you a boost. When you stop pedalling, the bike stops assisting.

Here’s what you need to know about how Trek e-bikes work and the parts that make them unique.

High-performance motor

The e-bike motor is located around the pedals in the bottom bracket area. Depending on the model, the motor has a power output between 250 and 350 watts and provides assist up to 20 or 28 mph. Trek partners exclusively with Bosch electronics.

Long-life battery

Trek e-bikes run off lithium-ion batteries. They’re waterproof, durable and can be recharged on or off the bike at any household electrical outlet. How far it will get you depends on the level of assist, type of terrain you’re riding and your weight.

Easy-to-control assist

A handlebar-mounted controller lets you choose your level of assist, plus it tells you how fast you’re going and how much battery you have left. You’re in control of the whole experience without ever having to take your hands off the handlebar.

Integrated, user-friendly tech

Trek’s Removable Integrated Battery (RIB) is available on select models. This one-piece battery and cover takes the hassle out of removing your battery for transport, charging or storage. No tools needed!

Bosch dependability and support

Trek electric bikes use Bosch e-bike systems. Bosch motors, batteries and controllers are dependable and well-designed, and if there is ever a problem, Bosch provides outstanding customer support.

We’re your e-bike experts

Every Trek e-bike is the culmination of 40 years of product knowledge and development experience. We know what works, and that’s why we can confidently back every Trek e-bike with the best warranty programme in the industry. Got a problem? We’ll solve it.

How’s the ride?

Trek e-bikes simply amplify your pedalling effort. They pedal like a normal bike, but the wind is always at your back and hills melt away.

What’s the range?

General range is 20-100 miles, based on power mode, terrain and other riding conditions.

Need to charge?

Simply plug into a standard wall socket and allow 3-5 hours to charge a depleted battery.

Need service?

Maintenance is generally the same as any other bicycle. The battery is temperature-sensitive, so store it indoors when temps reach extremes.

The gift of time

Ian V. is an A&E nurse with a nine-mile commute who used to spend 40 minutes in the car each day getting to and from work. But then his Super Commuter+ changed everything.

My e-bike challenge

'I challenged myself to ride an e-bike for a month in lieu of driving my car to see if I could save money on fuel, use a different mode to run errands and increase my non-exercise activity.'

Ride hard, ride home

The challenge materialised after an off-the-cuff comment. René Wildhaber, a sometimes-retired professional enduro rider who shreds with the best of them, had had enough of his mechanic’s driving.
