TREK POWERFLY FS 5
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.
