In case you haven’t heard, we’re big fans of the e-bike and how it helps riders of different abilities explore the world together. But what exactly is pedal assist?

Let’s start by dispelling one common myth we often hear, “Aren’t e-bikes like a moped?” In short, no.
Electric powered motorcycles use a throttle to engage the power. Trek e-bikes simply amplify your pedaling effort. They pedal like a regular bike, but the wind is always at your back and hills melt away.

Our e-bikes have four levels of assist to accommodate the level of boost you want. Trying to get the most out of your ride but want minimal help? Eco mode is the one for you. Middle of the pack? Bump it up to Tour or Sport mode. Trying to crush the biggest hill of the day no sweat? Turbo time.

Electric-assist bikes make it easy to stay with the group at any speed, and you can upgrade for free. E-bikes are first-come, first-serve on each tour date, so act now. It’s the easiest way to electrify your experience.
