It's right for you if...

You’re looking for an e-MTB that’s just as ready to shred as non-electric trail bikes. You want a powerful Bosch drive system that’ll propel you up climbs so you can hit lap after lap.

The tech you get

A burly alloy frame with 150 mm of rear travel that fully encases a 500 Wh battery, an e-MTB-optimised 160 mm RockShox 35 Gold RL fork, a powerful new Bosch Performance Line CX 250 W motor that assists up to 20 mph (25 km/h in Europe) and a Purion controller. Plus, a 1×12 drivetrain with a wide gear range so you can always find the ideal cadence for the motor, a dropper post, powerful 4-piston brakes for more downhill confidence and 29er Bontrager wheels with nimble yet grippy 2.6″ tyres.

The final word

Rail 5 is our best-value long-travel e-MTB. It’s equally as capable as our regular long-travel trail bikes, it just gets you back to the top in a flash. The powerful Bosch drive systems and durable part spec make for long-lasting fun.

Features

Bosch Performance Line CX motor

The Bosch Performance Line CX sets the standard for eMTB performance with up to 85 Nm of torque and an intelligent eMTB mode with Extended Boost that automatically adjusts the amount of assist based on the terrain.

Custom eMTB Lite mode

Trek eMTBs feature a custom eMTB Lite mode in place of Tour mode. It gives you more natural-feeling power delivery and longer battery life.

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.
