Trek, welcome to the ebike party. Trek have finally entered the superlight trail bike market with this 150-140mm suspension, 29" wheels and a brand new TQ 50Nm motor.

Nice modern geometry which is spot on for a 29er. 17-18kg (depending on the spec), it has to be the most discrete ebike on the market in 2022.
