The explosion in ebikes over the last few years has seen electric capability designed into just about every type of bike imaginable. The Trek Powerfly is Trek’s answer to incorporating electric power assisted riding into a high tech mountain bike design. In fact, the Powerfly FS, for all intents and purposes, is an electric adaption of the ever popular ABP suspension found in bikes such as the Fuel Ex and Remedy. What this means for the every day rider is that you now have the option of a world class, full suspension Trek mountain bike that will give you the confidence to go further than you ever thought possible. Maybe you want to session your favourite downhill sections more often without the need for shuttles. Or maybe you always wanted to tackle an epic backcountry trail but worry your fitness will let you down. The Powerfly or Powerfly FS can open up untapped mountain biking opportunities for riders of any level.

 

The Trek Powerfly for 2018 has been refined to integrate the battery and Bosch motor more seamlessly. Not only does the large battery unit now fit neatly into the downtube, it can be easily removed, tool free, with integrated handles. Trek has also included some clever features such as motor armour to protect the underside of the motor from trail damage. In addition, Trek has continued their tradition of incorporating rider feedback into their R&D with the 2018 Powerfly. Responding to rider feedback indicating that they were using the power assist mode to switch their riding effort as much as they did gears, Trek have included an e-mtb mode that automatically modifies the level of assistance based on rider torque input. This feature is designed to create a more seamless trail riding experience, as you don’t need to think about switching electric assist modes while out on the trail.

  The range of Powerfly bikes can be broken into hardtail and full suspension versions. If you aren’t looking for a full suspension model then the Powerfly 5 or 7 are your choices, with the Powerfly 5 available in both a unisex and women’s specific version. At the top end of the full suspension spectrum is the FS 7, which comes with a Rockshox Recon RL air fork paired with a mix of Deore and XT components. The FS 5 model, we believe, will be the big seller. This is where price meets performance in the best bang for buck option with a Deore level specification that is known to perform well and will suit many riders.
