Trek Unveils All-New Super Commuter+
WATERLOO, USA – Trek has unveiled an extraordinary new line of e-bikes that will indelibly alter the way people move in urban regions around the world. The all-new Trek Super Commuter+ was created in close partnership with the development team at Trek’s Benelux office.
The Super Commuter+ signals the next step in Trek’s continued commitment to developing innovative electric bikes. Like all Trek e-bikes, the Super Commuter+ employs pedal-assist technology that boosts a rider’s power and extends speed and distance capabilities. Two of the four models in the line-up, 8S and 9S, feature Bosch’s Performance Speed 350-watt motor, and all models are equipped with Bosch’s long-life 500 wH battery, allowing riders to go further and faster on a single charge.
Super Commuter+’s long-life battery is integrated into the frame’s downtube for a sleek, seamless look, and each Super Commuter+ model is equipped with the ultra-powerful SuperNova lighting system. The integrated head and rear lights deliver great visibility at all hours of the day and night and charge off of the battery, eliminating the need to charge lights separately.
The Super Commuter+ also features an elegant Bosch Purion control display and Trek’s exclusive Motor Armour, which provides additional protection to the weatherproof Bosch system under the frame, as well as an integrated low-profile Tubus rack, mudguards and derailleur cover. The MTB-style chain guide virtually eliminates chain-drop, even over rough terrain. Braze-ons under the top tube make it easy to integrate accessories.
Performance that goes the distance
With maximum sustained speeds of 45 kph on select models in select markets, the Super Commuter+ makes covering long distances in speed and comfort a reality. The Super Commuter+ was created to stand up to the harshest terrain on daily rides. The combination of wide, high-volume, 27.5+ x 2.4-inch Schwalbe Super Moto-X tyres, 180 mm direct-mount hydraulic disc brakes and a carbon fibre e2 fork deliver confident all-weather stopping power in any conditions. The 9 and 9S models feature a NuVinci N380 internal gear hub, while the Super Commuter+ 8 and 8S are equipped with a Shimano XT/11-speed drive train.
All models in the Super Commuter+ line-up are available for purchase through Trek’s network of retail partners in Europe from 15 March. The Super Commuter+ 8S is currently available for order in the US through US Trek retailers, with delivery expected from 1 June.
