Trek, a global leader in the design and manufacture of bicycles and electric Bikes, believes that cycling should be fun whether you’re cycling for pleasure or transportation! Trek also knows that there are instances where this might not be the case … like when you’re out cycling with your super-fit riding buddy, and you’re way behind him! Or when you’re out mountain biking with the family, and all you want is to be together, not arrive at your destination, exhausted and ready to pack up. The same goes for cycling to work: you’re cycling to save fuel, but that last hill leaves you wiped out for half the morning! Can you identify?
Electric bikes: changing the face of cycling
There are a lot of reasons to ride an e-bike. These rides are all about possibility. On or off-road, they’re perfect for those who want to climb for a bit longer, adventure a bit further or just get there a bit faster. Trek electric bikes amplify your pedalling power, as well as your ability to see and achieve more on your bike. They’re quick and smooth, with predictable, easy-to-control power and come with a rechargeable battery. Keep up with your faster friend on the trails or even beat the traffic and show up to work looking fresh and ready for the day. If you’re wanting to experience more, to go faster and further, an electric bike lets you do it. What a pleasure.
Trek electric bikes: a game changer for all cyclists!
With over 40 years dedicated to manufacturing bicycles, Trek uses only the most experienced designers, and the development of the electric bikes ensures an end product with that same Trek reliability, quality and performance that cyclists around the world have come to know and trust. Trek builds products to last a lifetime, and offers a lifetime warranty covering defects in materials and workmanship.
Trek’s launch of two new electric bike categories is set to change the way South Africans will view and experience cycling. The Trek Powerfly electric-MTB range enables mountain biking enthusiasts to go further, while the Trek Super Commuter+ 8S is sure to be a commuting cyclist’s dream.
These bikes are pedal-assist, so input to the pedals determines the level of assistance. Riding a bike with pedal-assist is incredibly intuitive, so anyone who can ride a bike, will immediately feel comfortable on one.
Mid-drive motors keep the weight distribution lower, and along with the position of the removable battery on the downtube, you’re in for a more stable, smoother ride. At Trek, we only partner with other experts in the industry. “We don’t skimp by using off-brand motors, which is why we’ve opted for Bosch, being the trusted name when it comes to small motors.”
Go further with Powerfly – The beauty of the all new Trek Powerfly electric mountain bike range is that these bikes amplify your pedalling power while amplifying the amount you’ll have on the trail. You’ll go further, go faster, and go more places on your Powerfly! The Powerfly features a Bosch Performance CX pedal-assist motor that makes for a supremely capable electric bike, allowing you to go further and have more fun.
At the heart of the pedal-assist drive is the rugged, reliable, mountain-ready Bosch motor with additional integrated motor protection. The compact Bosch Purion display is durable and easy to use without letting go of the handle bar. Choose from 4 assist modes so you can get a balance between power output and range, or select the intelligent e-MTB mode which automatically adjusts the amount of assist required to match the changing terrain. Make more possible with Powerfly this summer.
Goodbye car, good day, Super Commuter! – It’s hot, it’s viper red and it’s set to take you places in style. The Trek Super Commuter 8+ is the electric bicycle that makes getting where you need to go, a breeze. Our expert designers selected the Bosch Performance Speed motor, designed for athletic and powerful riding and doing justice to its name as the #1 performance system. The integrated frame-mounted long-life battery is a long-distance commuter’s dream, offering ideal balance along with a sophisticated look. With pedal-assist, you determine the level of assistance you need; so much so that you might be tempted to take the long way home from work!
The integrated rack and fenders takes the headache out of transporting items on your trip, while Trek’s custom Motor Armour provides additional protection from road debris. Wide, high-volume Schwalbe Super Moto-X tyres effectively combat our country’s notorious potholes, while direct-mount hydraulic disc brakes work together with a carbon fibre e2 fork to ensure all-weather stopping power. The Supernova daytime running light and tail light ensure optimal visibility, all the time.
