It's right for you if...

You’re looking for a long-travel carbon e-MTB with high-performance parts. You crave the responsiveness of carbon, the plush feel of high-end suspension, and would rather get all the good stuff now than have to upgrade down the line.

The tech you get

An OCLV Mountain Carbon frame that fully encases a 625 Wh battery, a super responsive RockShox ZEB Select+ fork with extra-burly 38 mm stanchions and loads of adjustability, a RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate shock with an updated Thru Shaft damper, a Bosch Performance Line CX 250 W motor that assists up to 20 mph (25 km/h in Europe) and a Kiox controller. A smooth-shifting Shimano XT drive train, 4-piston brakes for confident descents and Bontrager Line Comp 30 29er wheels with robust SE5 Team Issue tyres that come completely tubeless-ready, including sealant.

The final word

This bike features across-the-board upgrades that make it a serious ripper – especially the suspension package. It’s built for hammering gnarly descents, then flying right back up again thanks to the powerful Bosch drive system.

Features

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 further 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.

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.
