Finally the powerhouse of Trek enters the market with a serious trail ebike, rolling on 29" wheels, Bosch CX motor, 625Wh battery and 160mm/150mm suspension.

Geometry has a short 447mm chainstay (for a 29er) and a 64.5 head tube angle and a flip chip if you want to run a 27.5" wheel on the rear and ride a mullet.

The Trek Rail is a fantastic option for buying in a local bike shop. World-famous Trek have priced all the models very competitively, but my pick would be the Rail 5 with 625Wh battery and then upgrade the brakes, tyres and suspension for a killer build.
