Electric bike anatomy

Parts of an electric bike

1 Electric bike motors

All of our e-bikes are designed with mid-drive pedal-assist motors that are located in the same area as your pedals. They feel natural while pedalling, are easy to shift on hills and provide a boost of smooth, consistent power with every pedal stroke you take.

2 Electric bike displays

E-bike displays (also known as controllers) are what you use to see and control your e-bike's settings. You can change your level of assist, see your speed and distance, and check how much battery power you have left. Our e-bike displays are super-intuitive to use and are mounted right at your fingertips for convenience.

3 Electric bike batteries

E-bike batteries are the biggest contributing factor to how far your e-bike can go. The higher the watt hour (Wh) your battery is, the more power capacity it has. Batteries can be mounted in lots of different places, but those mounted on the downtube or integrated into the downtube itself provide the best centre of gravity for better balance.

How pedal-assist motors work

Electric bikes work by using an electric motor and battery to help you power your bike. On pedal-assist e-bikes, you control the amount of power the drive system provides and the assist only kicks in when you pedal. The motor amplifies the power behind each of your pedal strokes, providing a natural riding feeling that makes it seem like your legs are supercharged!

Some manufacturers make e-bikes that use a twist throttle to engage the drive system. With these bikes, you don't have to be pedalling for the motor to be engaged. This can be dangerous, since it's easy to get out of control if you're not paying attention. We only make pedal-assist e-bikes, because they feel the most like a regular bike and help riders feel more in command of their ride.

Pedal-assist motor

Depending on the model, your e-bike's electric motor has a power output between 250 and 350 watts, and assists up to 20 or 28 mph (32 or 45 km/h). And you can go faster than that without feeling much resistance from the motor.

Integrated battery

You can charge your battery on or off the bike using a charging cable that functions just like your laptop's. Plus, our Removable Integrated Battery (RIB) system makes it easy to take your battery with you for on-the-go charging.

Easy-to-use display

All our displays show you critical ride info like range, assist mode, speed and battery level. Select displays take things a step further by integrating with your phone for on-bike access to music, apps, turn-by-turn directions and more.

How far can e-bikes go?

The general range estimate for an electric bike varies from 20 to 100 miles on a single charge. Yes, it's really wide! That's because there are so many factors that determine your range ' some you can control, some you cant. Those you can include the size of your battery, the efficiency of your motor, the level of motor assist you select and how much weight you're carrying. Those you can't include wind, weather, temperature and terrain.

How batteries affect range
The bigger your battery, the more capacity you have to go further or go faster. Battery power is measured in watt hours (Wh), the higher the Wh the bigger the battery capacity.

How level of pedal-assist affects range
Your range is directly affected by the assist mode you pick. For example, eco mode provides the least amount of assist, draws the least power from the battery and gives you the longest range. Turbo mode provides the most assist, draws the most power from your battery and will drain your battery the quickest.

To help you figure out the most accurate range estimate your for e-bike, we recommend using Bosch's range finder tool.

FAQs

How’s the ride?

Trek e-bikes simply amplify your pedalling effort. They pedal like a regular bike, but the wind is always at your back and hills melt away.

Electric bikes are basically just electric-powered motorcycles, right?

No, electric-powered motorcycles use a throttle to engage the power. Trek e-bikes are pedal-assist, so input to the pedals determines the level of assist. Riding an electric bike with pedal-assist is incredibly intuitive, and anyone who can ride a bike will immediately feel comfortable on one.

What’s the best part about an e-bike?

Electric bikes break down barriers to riding. Most importantly, they are incredibly fun. Ride further, see more and explore the possibilities that come with a little extra power.

Where can I ride?

Many trails and bike paths allow e-bikes. Speed e-bike regulations vary by country, state and city. Please check with your local authorities for clarification.

Do electric bikes require a licence or registration?

Depending on where you live, speed e-bikes (those that can reach 28 mph/45 kph) may require licensing or registration. The rules are changing quickly, so it’s best to check with local authorities for clarification.

How fast can I go?

Check individual bike specifications and market availability for specific top speeds, but top speeds range from 16 mph/25 kph to 28 mph/45 kph.

What accessories are compatible?

Common accessories like mudguards and racks will fit most of our e-bikes, and many already come equipped with such features!

What’s the advantage of mid-drive motors and batteries?

This configuration keeps weight centred and low for predictable handling and improved ride quality.

How many assist modes are there?

Bikes equipped with Shimano STEPS have three levels of assist, and Bosch systems provide four levels of power assist.

Why are there different assist levels?

Riders don’t always need the same amount of assist. Using less assist increases battery life, while the option to use more is always there for acceleration or climbing hills.

What’s a watt hour?

A watt hour is a measurement of battery capacity. Think of it as the 'size of the fuel tank'.

What’s the range?

The general range is 20-100 miles/32-160 kilometres depending on power modes, terrain and other riding conditions like load or wind. Bosch has a handy e-bike range calculator that will help you estimate the range for specific riding conditions.

How do you turn the battery on/off?

Most are controlled from the handlebar. Earlier-generation Shimano STEPS systems, such as the one used on Lift+, have a power switch on the side of the battery that serves as the on/off switch for the whole system.

How long does it take to charge?

Approximately 3-5 hours to charge, depending on the state of the battery prior to charge.

How does it charge?

The battery charges like any personal computer or mobile phone. Plug the charger into a wall outlet and connect the charger to the battery. Most Trek e-bikes don’t require you to remove the battery to charge, but it’s always an option. Lights on the side of the battery indicate when it is completely charged.

Is the battery waterproof?

Yes.

Can I lock the battery?

Yes, the battery is locked to the bike and a key must be used to remove it.

What if I lose my battery key?

Battery replacement keys are available through your local retailer.

Does pedalling charge the battery?

No, the efficient motors used by Trek are not regenerative. Most regenerative motors provide a negligible amount of energy back to the battery, and sacrifice a lot in efficiency.

Will the lights still work if the battery is dead?

Yes. The battery management systems stop the motor from drawing power when the battery’s capacity reaches a certain point, but there is still ample power available to operate the lights.

Are replacement batteries available?

Replacement batteries are available directly from Bosch and Shimano.

What’s the warranty?

Like all Trek bikes, the frame is covered by a limited lifetime warranty. Bosch offers a warranty of 2 years or 500 cycles, and Shimano offers a warranty of 2 years or 1,000 cycles for the battery.

What service is required?

Where can an e-bike be serviced?

Maintenance is generally the same as with any other bicycle. Lithium ion batteries perform better at room temperatures and battery life depletion may occur if left outside in extreme temperatures, so we recommend storing them indoors.

Why are there different assist levels?

Any Trek electric bike retailer. Ask if your shop has Trek-Certified Expert Technicians!

Where can I buy one?

We are a Trek-certified electric bike dealer. Go to your nearest Cycles Galleria Store or Order now online!
