TREK POWERFLY FS 5

Bicycling (South Africa) - - Fetish - R80 000 TREK­BIKES.COM – JM

TThe Powerfly might not have all the tech wiz­ardry of the Turbo Levo, but it’s an im­pres­sive of­fer­ing none­the­less, with a pow­er­ful and re­li­able (re­mov­able) Bosch mo­tor and an easy-to-use Bosch Pu­rion dis­play in the cock­pit, which al­lows you to see what’s hap­pen­ing and change set­tings with­out hav­ing to move your hands off the bar.

Like the Turbo Levo, it’s a proper trail bike with a bat­tery, not a tar-fo­cused e-bike with some plas­tic bits tacked on. There’s 130mm of Rock­Shox sus­pen­sion front and rear, and a durable Shi­mano 1x10 driv­e­train.

The only things you might want to up­grade are the stan­dard 2.35” Bon­trager XR3 tyres. A bike like this is cry­ing out for wider, burlier rub­ber.
