Powerfly 5 is an e-MTB that pairs the boost of a Bosch electric bike system and the sleek looks of a traditional trail bike. The Removable Integrated Battery (RIB) is fully encased in the lightweight aluminum frame but doesn't require tools for removal. This user-friendly electric mountain bike is built in Trek's performance trail heritage with exclusive tech, great suspension, and a motor that can help you sustain speeds of up to 20 mph.
It's right for you if...
You want to ride more, explore longer trails, and have more fun! Ease of use is a big priority, so you're looking for an e-MTB that's not just wildly capable but also has new tech specifically designed for a better user experience.
The tech you get
A durable Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame that fully encases a long-range 500Wh battery for great aesthetics and protection on the trail, a Bosch Performance CX 250-watt motor that assists up to 20 mph and an ergonomic Bosch Purion controller. Plus, a 100mm RockShox Judy Silver TK fork, Tubeless Ready Bontrager Kovee 23 wheels, a 10-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain, and hydraulic disc brakes.
The final word
Trek's new Removable Integrated Battery (RIB) system is a major new advancement in e-MTB tech. It gives you the sleek looks of a traditional mountain bike and makes it much easier to remove the battery for charging, while still giving you all the fun and performance advantages of a powerful and trail-tough Bosch electric bike system.
