Have you wanted to ride, well, more that you already do? Not just how often, but how far? Trek's Verve+ 2 will help you achieve that goal.
The new Verve+ 2 is Trek's power-assist hybrid bicycle with improvements and changes requested by customers who ride it the most.
The Verve+ 2 uses Bosch's Active Line power-assist technology, allowing the rider to cover more ground with less effort. Long rides with friends and grocery store trips are just a few of the options that might've been less appealing in the past. The handling is stable, and the fit is upright and comfortable. The step-through format of the new Alpha Gold aluminum frame makes climbing aboard and dismounting easy than ever!
Electric-assist bicycles need to be efficient and capable, ready to do more than just help pedaling uphill. Trek started with a lightweight Alpha Gold aluminum frame and added Bosch's 250-watt Active power-assist motor in a dedicated mount at the bottom. The Bosch Active Line motor adds power to the rider's own efforts at the crankset rather than the rear wheel. This isn't a motorbike-style "throttle-twist" system, but a way to smoothly add power while pedaling. The amount of power assist can be adjusted with the left-side control pod on the handlebar. Four power levels (Eco, Tour, Sport and Turbo) can be selected with increasing levels of power assist. Speed, range and level of power assist is shown on the Purion's digital display, giving the rider a clear image of range and performance. After the rider reaches 20mph, the power assist simply stops; downhills and tailwinds can sometimes be more helpful than an electric motor! With a full charge, the Verve+ 2 can go as far as 85 miles on Eco mode in ideal conditions. With a rechargeable 400Wh battery mounted on the frame's downtube, the center of gravity of the Verve+ 2 stays low for better handling and braking. Recharging takes 3.5 hours from a completely empty battery, but 50% of the battery charge can be done in only 1.5 hours. The battery for the Verve+ 2 can be unlocked and brought indoors for charging. Trek didn't forget how versatile a bike needs to be for daily errands, so they added a rear rack, full-wrap fenders and lights. The front light is an impressive 120-lumen daylight-visible Herrmans unit powered by the Bosch battery. Out back is a Bosch-powered Spanninga Solo tail light also designed to get the attention of drivers. There's even a direct-mount kickstand mounted at the back of the chainstay.
The rest of the components of the Verve+ 2 are high-quality components found on Trek's classic Verve hybrid bicycles. The drivetrain features Shimano's 9-speed Alivio shifter and rear derailleur, adding fingertip operation and long service life. An 11-36T cassette offers a wide gearing range for tackling challenging terrain. Bontrager's alloy Connection wheels are wrapped with 700x45c H5 Hard-Case Ultimate tires for confident grip on surfaces paved and unpaved. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes bring effective stopping power in all conditions, wet or dry. Trek hasn't forgotten about comfort with the Verve+ 2, and the bike's adjustable suspension seatpost and Boulevard saddle delivers! An accessory-ready adjustable alloy stem and swept handlebar complete this exceptionally helpful runabout.
A Bosch battery charger is included with the purchase of this bicycle.
The FX 3 Disc is a straightforward machine that gets the job done. even if you need it to do many jobs!
Everyone who rides even short distances knows that a light bike is good, but a light and comfortable bike is better. The FX 3 Disc's Alpha Gold aluminum frame and carbon fiber fork keep overall weight very low. The bike's upright fit, comfy Bontrager H1 saddle and long-tail Satellite IsoZone grips make every mile more comfortable, too. Details like internal cable routing, accessory mounts on the stem, and rack and fender mounts make the FX 3 Disc a useful machine for commuting, shopping and day trips. At your fingertips are 9-speed Shimano shifters, making every gear change simple and quick. A 46/30T Shimano double crankset and 11-36T Shimano cassette boast a massive gearing range for challenging routes and heavy cargo. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes feature excellent stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine. Tubeless-ready alloy Bontrager wheels are shod with Bontrager own 700x32c H2 Hard-Case Lite tires that excel on pavement and hardpan trails alike. The aformentioned H1 saddle sits atop an alloy seatpost, while an alloy Bontrager handlebar lets you guide the FX 3 Disc to your destination.
Hybrids come in all shapes and sizes now, but our customers are looking for a bike that does plenty of things well. The Escape 1 Disc does exactly that!
The flagship of the Escape line uses the same ALUXX-Grade aluminum frame as the rest of the line, and finishes it off with a Composite carbon fiber fork that keeps overall bike weight low. The fork's ride quality also makes rougher roads just a little smoother, too. Out back, an alloy D-Fuse seatpost soaks up impacts better than a classic cylindrical post. With room for up to 45c tires, the Escape 1 Disc can tackle rough roads, gravel and dirt paths with ease. Mounts for racks, fenders and bottle cages add an extra level of practicality to the bike. An upright fit makes it easy to see the road ahead.
The Shimano drivetrain on the Escape 1 Disc is especially precise, featuring a Shadow-style Alivio mountain bike derailleur that shifts well under hard pedaling loads. The alloy Shimano 46/30T crankset boasts flex-free power delivery, while an 11-36T Shimano cassette brings a wide gearing range to the bike. Tubeless-ready alloy Giant GX wheels are wrapped with 700x38c Giant Crosscut Metro treaded tires, adding easy acceleration and confident grip to every ride. Tektro hydraulic disc brakes command excellent stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine. A Giant Sport Comfort saddle, and alloy handlebar and stem completes the Escape 1 Disc.
