The E-Caliber 9.6 is one of the very few e-mountain bikes with a super sporty orientation. With just 120 mm of suspension travel at the fork, it underlines its ambitions for racing. The exclusive rear suspension comes from the successful race fully without motor. With it, Jolanda Neff has even become an Olympic champion. For use on more rough trails, Trek has other models in its product range for this purpose.
At steep sections, the somewhat weak FAZUA motor requires a lot of initiative from the rider. The FAZUA Evation Ride 50 Trail gives off a natural riding feeling. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the E-Caliber 9.6 , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the E-Caliber 9.6 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (7000) .

Carbon frames are rather the exception in the price range of about 7000€. With the carbon fibre chassis, Trek thus sets clear accents compared to the aluminium competitors. Solid endurance qualities are shown by the chassis of medium quality. The mid-range brakes from Shimano do their job but could be a bit firmer. The power of the four pistons setup is only average. The average shifting components and accessories leave some tuning potential open. For most e-bikers, this should be an acceptable point. The handling of the bike is pleasantly balanced due to the moderate geometry. This allows you to intuitively control the bike over the trails. The low bottom bracket height is a party pooper for the handling on the trail. On other bikes, you are more centrally located behind the handlebar. Short chainstays and and a slack seat angle make the front end light in steep climbs. To keep the front wheel on the ground, you need to consciously lean forward. On the scale, the E-Caliber 9.6 makes a good figure with 18,5 kg. Most Tourenbikes are significantly heavier.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Trek E-Caliber 9.6

The developers of Trek have created a solid all-rounder with the E-Caliber 9.6. Even though the E-Mountainbike reveals a weak flank with a middle ground motor and an average chassis, it remains thanks to an outstanding handling:Genetiv a widely applicable vehicle.
