Not only cars are involved in the race to electrification. Trek presents the new Trek e-Caliber, a mountain bike equipped with an electric motor of 55 Nm of torque and with a range of 70 kilometers. In the saddle you can set 3 assistance modes that can be activated through the brand new bX di command Fazua. The Trek e-Caliber reaches a speed of 25 km / h and its weight is 15.77 kg in the E-Caliber 9.9 XX1 AXS version.
The new pedal assisted bicycle is the progenitor of the XC family of electric mountain bikes Trek. The E-Caliber range will appeal to those looking for a lightweight solution designed to enhance the experience on classic routes cross country (XC).
Given its use, we come to the salient features of the E-Caliber. First is the electric mountain bike full suspension lighter than the catalog. For means of this type, lightness is in fact fundamental, achieved with record-breaking ‘slimming treatments’. Trek also makes it an undoubted strength. In fact, in the top of the range version the kilograms are barely 15,77. Always under 16 kg there is also the E-Caliber 9.9 XTR variant (15.95 kg). Going down the model we go to 16.94 kg of the E-Caliber 9.8 XT and 16.99 kg of the E-Caliber 9.8 GX. The entry level E-Caliber 9.6 instead weighs 18.49 kilograms.
The Trek bike drive system is the Fazua Evation. Here, too, lightness is a must. The weight of the device is only 4 kg. The software mounted on the Fazua Evation is called BLACK PEPPER and has been designed to offer a wider range of powers and superior responsiveness at low speeds. The software also allows you to customize your pedaling style thanks to the Toolbox Software 2.0 signed Fazua. In the saddle it is possible to optionally the different modes through an intuitive interface. Finally, to read the various driving performance data, customers can use the Fazua ‘Rider’ app.
The model is based on the racing model, called XC Supercaliber. With this version the E-Caliber has in common theIsoStrut shock absorber, suitable for making long distance routes comfortable at speeds typical of cross country. Compared to the racing ‘sister’, however, the new mountain bike guarantees one superior stability and a more relaxed driving setting. The fork has also been increased by 120 mm. Finally, a cover is supplied to apply once the motor has been removed, for those wishing to pedal in ‘analog’, free from constraints, rules and speed limits reserved for e-bikes.
The new electric bike is already available, in a rapidly expanding market also thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic. The new E-Caliber is available in 5 price ranges, depending on the specific models: starting from € 6,799 for the E-Caliber 9.6, to get to the 12.999 euro of the E-Caliber 9.9 XX1 AXS.
