2019 Trek Electric Bikes, Powerfly Line Deep Dive

https://electricbikereview.com/forum/threads/2019-trek-powerfly-electric-mountain-bike-details-video-overview.26432/ Trek redesigned their Powerfly electric mountain bikes for 2019 with a new Bosch PowerTube battery integration, flip chip travel adjust for full suspension, a womens hardtail model, and they all use the high torque Bosch Performance Line CX motor. In this video deep dive, I spend some time with a Trek Mountain Bike Brand Manager named Travis Ott to get all of the details on the Powerfly 5, Powerfly 7, and carbon fiber Powerfly 9.7 which are coming to the North America market.

Lovely bikes but I couldn’t spend that much on something that could be stolen quite easily, I have a redux diamond frame and I’m paranoid enough with that, can’t imagine if I spend any more.

James Mason says:

Have you heard anything more about bionx

ForbinColossus says:

haibike has some serious competition with these Treks. Bad part is they use the PURION display in 2019 – including Trek’s top of the line $9000.
Powerfly LT 9.9 Plus

JK 241 says:

which model for gravel, logging roads, fire roads, and trails (nothing extreme)?

WXOLF says:

Trek have some good bikes
Don’t like the front sprocket on their ebikes
Prefer Specialized design

Tamas Varga says:

Good looking bikes… minus the ancient Bosch Performance motor. There are many smaller, lighter options out there.

Jimiel Joseph says:

I understand the battery in frame will be the norm , but I have to admit I do prefer having my battery separate from the frame and separate from the structural Integrity of the frame. I can still ride my 2017 Dual Sport Plus without a battery and it will not look out of place and it will not affect the structural Integrity of it. And even if the structural Integrity of those new frames is not compromised while riding without the battery, it leaves the open area vulnerable and it will sure look stupid.

Sneaky Ray says:

2019 Haibike flyon is better!

Greg Helton says:

Color choice in the mid-level bikes is dark gray or light gray. No thank you.

Gary Bowen says:

Securing such a Mercedes Benz bike would make it impossible for me to ride and enjoy such a bike. I would even say as an older man I’d be robbed left facedown on the pavement. I reside in a drug infested community.

kurt _hectic says:

Deore and xt in 3/4/5k $ bikes? I just bought full sram eagle nx group for 400$ I really don’t understand that. You have to keep these prices to earn in Germany, USA and other developed countries? For how long?

Mark Elford says:

Great review thnx Court…that trek 7 is very nice.

Bob A says:

Great review Court! Would like to touch on a few points with Trek:
Curious to know what the Carbon edition retails for and at what price points for any upgrades.
Not a big fan of the Purion display. Would like to see an Intuvia upgrade on the higher end models (as standard equipment) or as an available option if possible.
Love the integrated motor on the carbon model, however would also like to see the same integration with the motor tilted on all of the other models reviewed in this presentation.
I also may opt for a custom build (ie: LaMere Diode with Shimano E8000 Motor) over the Trek Carbon model for superior components and low weight in that class. Thanks 2019 will be exciting for E-bikes!

ShimShamFPV says:

Yeah Trek is awesome. So bike shops have sold there shit for years. So i guess you could say bike shops played a big part in building there brand but then they decide to start selling direct. When your trek rep visits your shop and gives a a bit of grief because your numbers arent that great, hmmmmm stupid i wonder why that is. Sorry but that needed to be said

JK 241 says:

why not have charger port up top where its cleaner?

Kirk Dillon says:

Are the Trek hardtails with fenders available in the US? I saw the Trek europe has them and they look like an awsome commuting option.

Christopher Siedlecki says:

Its amazing how bicycles are becoming more expensive than motorcycles

Peter Creagh says:

I wonder how many years after they stop making them you will still be able to get batteries and new motors as they will become worth less than pedal bikes once you can no longer buy spare electrical componentry.

Andrea Biancucci says:

High level bike like the 9.7 I was expecting the Kiox instead Purion….

tecums3h says:

I really enjoy Trek products and have owned quite a few. I will be checking these new bikes. Big bucks to drop though.
