POW­ER­FLY

Australian Mountain Bike - - Between The Tape -

The Pow­er­fly hard­tail has been in the Trek range al­ready, but for 2018 it sees a few key changes. The frame has been com­pletely re­designed for the cus­tom Trek-Bosch bat­tery that sits into the frame, and Trek have added size spe­cific wheel siz­ing to the range as well. The eMTB set­ting for the Bosch mo­tor re­sponds in ac­cor­dance to your torque, to match your rid­ing style bet­ter.

The bikes have 100mm travel forks and Boost spac­ing for the tube­less ready wheels. The main dif­fer­ences be­tween the mod­els we will get in Aus­tralia will be mov­ing from a Rock­Shox Judy to Re­con fork, and from 10 to 11 speed driv­e­trains – along with bet­ter brak­ing, wheels and a wider gear range on the Pow­er­fly 7 – along with a drop­per post.

The Pow­er­fly 5 and Pow­er­fly 5 WSD will sell for $4499, and the Pow­er­fly 7 will sell for $5499.
