Awards, Props & Reviews

Why you'll love it

  1. The new, better-than-ever Bosch motor is smaller, lighter, and more efficient. It feels more natural while you’re pedaling, and has less drag when you’re not
  2. The full-color Kiox controller displays ride info, connects with your Bluetooth® enabled devices, and has a built-in theft prevention feature
  3. RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft works faster than a normal shock, so it tracks the ground better and keeps you in control
  4. 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)
  5. 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 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 625Wh battery, a super responsive RockShox ZEB Select+ fork with extra-burly 38mm stanchions and loads of adjustability, a RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate shock with an updated Thru Shaft damper, a Bosch Performance Line CX 250W motor that assists up to 20 mph, and a Kiox controller. A smooth-shifting Shimano XT drivetrain, 4-piston brakes for confident descents, and Bontrager Line Comp 30 29er wheels with robust SE5 Team Issue tires that come completely tubeless ready, including sealant.
