Description

It’s right for you if…
You’re looking for a long-travel carbon e-MTB with high-performance parts and a lot of battery power. You crave the responsiveness of carbon, the stability of a longer reach, the plush feel of high-end suspension, and want the very latest from Bosch.

The tech you get

An upgraded OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with longer reach and oversized head tube and seat tube for maximum strength. An extra-long-range 750Wh battery, a super responsive RockShox ZEB Select+ fork, and RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate Thru Shaft shock with a wide-range SRAM GX drivetrain. You get the latest from Bosch with smart system Performance Line CX, including the new Bluetooth® LED remote for easy connectivity and all-in-one navigation and activity tracking through the eBike Flow app.

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 motor, 750Wh battery, and parts that can keep up with all that rowdy riding.

Why you’ll love it

Bosch’s new smart system gives you all the same power and responsiveness with a new Bluetooth-connected LED remote and eBike Flow app that puts even more control and customization at your fingertips

The full-color Kiox display shows ride info, connects with your Bluetooth® enabled devices, and has a built-in theft prevention feature

RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft works faster than a normal shock, so it tracks the ground better and keeps you in control

The new frame is extra stout with a 34.9mm seat tube to accommodate more robust dropper posts, and an oversized head tube that works with burly eMTB-optimized forks for less flex and more precise steering

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

Bosch smart system
The new Bosch smart system gives you an eMTB that’s more connected than ever. The new LED remote connects with the new Bosch eBike Flow app via Bluetooth. You get tons of useful features at your fingers, and over-the-air system upgrades.

Bosch eBike Flow app
The new eBike Flow app turns your ride into a personalized experience. Use it to customize your motor’s assist behavior, track your ride stats, and integrate your data with apps like Strava and Apple Health. There’s even handy features like navigation and service reminders.

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.

RockShox Super Deluxe with Thru Shaft
With the all-new RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate Thru Shaft, you get the most refined shock on the market, with an updated air spring and an exclusive Thru Shaft damper that gives you tenacious grip, plush control, and the support you need for ripping rough descents all day.
