The Verve+ was Trek's first version of a power-assisted classic hybrid, offering a boost during every mile. The new Verve+ 3 is a more refined version of that bike in several ways.
The Verve+ 3 Lowstep is a strong entry in the power-assist category, with a comfortable fit, a smooth ride, and plenty of range. In fact, the Verve+ 3 will take you up to 80 miles with power assist, depending on the level selected. A mid-mounted Bosch Active Line Plus motor and 500Wh PowerTube battery delivers plenty of hill-conquering power. A handlebar-mounted Bosch Purion controller allows the rider to adjust to one of four levels of power assist: Eco, Tour, Sport and Turbo. Speed, range and level of power assist is shown on the Purion's digital LCD display, giving the rider a clear idea of range and performance. After the rider reaches 20mph, the power assist simply cuts out; downhills and tailwinds can sometimes be more helpful than an electric motor! If more than 80 miles of range is needed, a Range Boost battery (sold separately) can be added on the seat tube. Range Boost doubles your e-bike's range so you can ride longer, commute farther, and take on bigger adventures.
The Verve+ 3 features an Alpha Smooth aluminum frame with a pocket in the downtube that allows the Removeable Internal Battery (or RIB) to be taken indoors for charging. No tools are needed, and the battery even has a pop-out carry handle in the top. The overall fit and geometry of the Verve+ 3 boasts an upright fit and stable handling, making rides around town easy and comfortable. There's a Bontrager Boulevard saddle mounted on an adjustable suspension seatpost that soaks up impacts. Up front, an adjustable handlebar and stem allows for excellent control and fit. A Shimano 9-speed Alivio shifter and Alivio rear derailleur boast precise gear changes, while an 11-36T cassette brings a wide gearing range for hilly commutes and grocery runs. Shimano supplies the hydraulic disc brakes that reign in speed in all conditions, rain or shine. Bontrager's lightweight Connection wheelset and 700x50c E6 Hard-Case Lite tires bring confident grip and a smooth feel to every mile. Reflective sidewalls on the tires get a driver's attention at low light levels.
The Verve+ 3 is ready to ride with plenty of included accessories! A full-wrap fender set keeps you dry in wet conditions, while a rear rack is ready for panniers on your next trip to the grocery store. Front and rear LED lights improve visibility in low light, and are powered by the main Bosch battery. A full chain guard adds a classy, sleek touch, too. An adjustable rear-mounted kickstand make parking a breeze!
