Rail 5 is an electric 29er with 150mm of travel built for ripping the big stuff.
It features the same high-end trail tech as our analog trail bikes, plus a powerful new Bosch drive system with 500Wh battery and 250W motor that assists your trail fun up to 20mph.
Why you'll love Rail 5
Rail rides just as hard as its non-electric brethren, plus it powers you right back up the mountain for extended play
The Purion controller has Walk Assist and an intelligent eMTB mode that automatically delivers the right amount of power based on your terrain
Made with the same exclusive frame tech as Remedy and Slash, like Mino Link adjustable geometry, a Straight Shot down tube for extra stiffness, and Active Braking Pivot (ABP)
The dropper post lets you lower your saddle on the fly so it's out of the way on descents
Trek's Removable Integrated Battery (RIB) system looks great and is super user-friendly: it fully hides the battery in the frame for protection, makes it easy remove the battery without tools and lets you mount a water bottle cage
It's right for you if...
You’re looking for an e-MTB that has the feel, handling and tech of a non-electric trail bike, with a powerful drive system so you can pile on the laps and runs.
The tech you get
Burly Trek alpha platinum alloy frame with 150mm of rear travel that fully encases a 500Wh battery, an e-MTB optimized 160mm RockShox 35 Gold RL fork, a powerful new Bosch Performance Line CX 250W motor that assists up to 20 mph, and a Purion controller.
1x12 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" tires.
Wrapping It All Up
Rail 5 is Trek's best-value long-travel e-MTB - equally as capable as any Trek long-travel trail bike, plus gets you back to the top in a flash. The powerful Bosch drive systems and durable part spec make for long-lasting fun.
