Electric bicycles have taken the industry by storm in recent years. They allow riders to go further, carry more and ride faster than they ever thought possible! Even better, with Trek's Ride+ technology, electric bikes are lighter, better balanced and more fun to ride than ever before! Every Ride+ electric bicycle is equipped with a mid-drive motor that works by powering the chain, not the wheel. By placing the motor low and in the middle of the bike, Trek's Ride+ electric bikes feel and handle just like a regular bike! The steering is light and responsive while the bike feels well balanced and stable. That combined with a 50+ mile range thanks to a lightweight Lithium ion battery makes for a totally new and enjoyable riding experience!
