E-Caliber 9.6 is a carbon electric mountain bike that rides—and looks—like a traditional cross country bike. The compact Fazua drive system lets you do more of what you love with subtle, natural-feeling assist that doesn't overpower the physical and technical challenges of the trail.
It's right for you if...
This bike is perfect for XC riders who want to push a little farther or a little steeper. It's also great for anyone who needs a little boost to motivate them to ride more, to get up climbs, or to keep pace with faster groups.
The tech you get
An OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with 60mm of travel, a 120mm RockShox Gold RL fork, and Trek's IsoStrut FOX Performance shock. A Fazua Evation drive system that can assist up to 20 mph when it's on, and gives zero drag when it's off, plus a Shimano Deore 12-speed drivetrain, dropper post for getting low on descents, and Bontrager Kovee Comp 23 wheels.
The final word
E-Caliber is a fast and smooth XC bike that just happens to have a compact drive system that'll give you a little boost when you want it.
Why you'll love it
- You get a helping hand from the motor on climbs and long rides, but it's a more natural-feeling assist that gives you an overall experience that's closer to riding an analog bike than a typical e-MTB
- The drive system, including the motor, is easily removable. Just take it out, pop on the included cover, and you'll have a standard mountain bike that weighs 2.9kg less than before
- IsoStrut gives you just enough rear suspension for cross country traction and comfort with less weight and more efficiency
- Pivotless seat stays save on weight and actively bend to help soak up trail chatter
