The 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.
This bike is perfect for XC riders who want to push a little further 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.
An OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with 60 mm of travel, a 120 mm RockShox Gold RL fork and Trek's IsoStrut FOX Performance shock. A Fazua Evation drive system that can assist up to 20 mph (25 km/h in Europe) when it's on, and gives zero drag when it's off, plus a Shimano Deore 12-speed drive train, dropper post for getting low on descents and Bontrager Kovee Comp 23 wheels.
The 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.
- 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 analogue 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 2.9 kg 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
Fast and efficient
Fazua's lightweight drive system adds a punch of power when you need it, but rides and feels like a traditional bike when you don't. You won't feel much drag or resistance when you turn it off or pass the max level of assist. The system is also compatible with a smartphone app to let you check battery status and customise your ride.
Smart software for the trail
The E-Caliber is equipped with intelligent Fazua software called BLACK PEPPER, which allows the motor to respond immediately as you start to pedal, delivers more power over a wider cadence range and lets you customise your user settings.
Remove the motor and drivepack to save 2.9 kg/6.4 lb on days when you don't need the boost. The included cover also turns the down tube into extra storage.
The E-Caliber has the same innovative IsoStrut rear suspension as the World Cup-winning Supercaliber. You get 60 mm of integrated rear travel ? just the right amount of comfort and traction, without the weight or flex of traditional full suspension.
