Electric Bicycles Take Hassle Out of Cycling

Do you like everything about cycling except the actual physical act of cycling, or would you just like something to help you out when the trek gets really tough?

May we introduce electric bikes by Trek? These take the effort out of cycling and make a lot of sense on the daily commute, especially when you want to arrive looking (and smelling) as fresh as a daisy.

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.

Trek is launching 2 new electric bicycles into the South African markets. Both are pedal assisted, which mean the rider’s input determines the level of assistance. The mid-drive motors aim to keep weight distribution as low as possible, while the location of the battery to drive the motor aims to give it a more stable, smoother ride. These motors are supplied by Bosch.

Trek 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. Models consist of the Powerfly 5 Hardtail, Powerfly Full Suspension 5, Powerfly Full Suspension 7 and Powerfly Full Suspension 9 and will be available in-store from September 2017.

Trek Super Commuter

The Trek Super Commuter 8+ is the electric bicycle that makes getting where you need to go, a breeze. The integrated frame-mounted long-life battery is claimed to be a long-distance commuter’s dream, offering ideal balance along with a sophisticated look.

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.
