The E-Caliber 9.8 GX AXS 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 9.8 GX AXS , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the E-Caliber 9.8 GX AXS in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (11000) .

Solid endurance qualities are shown by the chassis of medium quality. Bad brakes reduce the riding pleasure. Fortunately, this is not the case with the E-Caliber 9.8 GX AXS. With their four pistons and 2 disc brakes the SRAM brake brakes good. 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 bottom bracket is high, which costs handling points. This tends to make the rider stand on the bike. On other EMTBs it feels better integrated. 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. With its slim weight, the E-Caliber 9.8 GX AXS is one of the lightest EMTBs. Especially going downhill, the good geometry of the E-Caliber 9.8 GX AXS really shines.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Trek E-Caliber 9.8 GX AXS

Friends of gravity should jot down the E-Caliber 9.8 GX AXS. With an outstanding handling and a good brake system, the Trek is a real trail rocket for flowy trails. But a low travel are of course points of criticism that one should be aware of before purchasing. A generous warranty also speaks of sustainable business practices. With 25 years of warranty, Trek sets the bar high!
