Based in Wisconsin, Trek bikes have always prided themselves in being on the forefront of bike innovation. Their electric bikes are far from the exception. Designed in the US and manufactured in China, every Trek bike is backed by their warranty and quality guarantee. Though they offer a full range of electric bicycles, today we’ll be focusing on the Verve+ 2 2020.
Let’s dive right into what makes the Verve+2 an option in the electric bike market. Priced at $2,499.99, the Verve+ 2 isn’t exactly a budget buster, nor is it on the lower end of the spectrum. However, it is an electric hybrid bike that garners a boost from reliable Bosch systems, including pedal-assist that can take you up to 20 mph. Equipped with a road-hugging suspension seatpost, wide stable tires, and added LED lights, this is a bike that puts safety and comfort first.
A feather light Alpha Gold aluminum frame plus a 9-speed Shimano drivetrain, amplify your ride without weighing you down. A Bosch Active, 250 watt line motor has a mid-motor placement which keeps the bikes center of balance low for optimum balance and support. A 400 Wh Bosch battery offers a minimum range of 38 miles and an estimated maximum range of 88 miles. Hydraulic disc brakes and 45c puncture resistant tires provide even more stability. Ergonomic grips, front and rear lights, a kickstand, and rack features all just prove to be the cherry on top. An added Bosch Purion controller includes walk assist to help you push your bike straight out of cellars or steep garages.
Additionally, the Purion controller allows you to keep tabs on battery life (charge time is around 6.5 hours), speed, and overall bike controls. Think of it like your Verve+ 2 command center. The bike also comes equipped with Bosch Active Line for 40 Nm of torque for a smooth ride and excellent support.
Overall, the Verve+ 2 is a great mid-priced e-bike for those looking for a combination of power, stability, comfort, and function. This is a stylish bike that performs well and looks even better.
