How do e-bikes work?

How’s the ride?

Trek e-bikes simply amplify your pedaling effort. They pedal like a regular bike, but the wind is always at your back and hills melt away.

What’s the range?

General range is 20-100 miles, based on power mode, terrain, and other riding conditions.

Need to charge?

Simply plug into a standard wall outlet and allow 3-5 hours to charge a depleted battery.

Need service?

Maintenance is generally the same as any other bicycle. The battery is temperature sensitive, so store it indoors when temps reach extremes.
