The Rail 5 500 W is a classic e-mountain bike without technical gimmicks. Trek's motto is clear: sit on it, ride it, have fun!
The Performance Line CX from Bosch shows impressively that they shouldn't be limited to DIY and household products. The very well-rounded motor control and the progressive power output characterise the character of the Bosch motor. The well-tuned riding modes cater to bikers of all preferences. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the Rail 5 500 W with only an average range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Rail 5 500 W in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (5000) .

Solid endurance qualities are shown by the chassis of medium quality. At the brakes, Trek middle class four pistons brakes by Shimano are used. The drivetrain and components have a subordinate but not to be neglected importance when it comes to EMTB. Even the bike brand product managers know this and don't aim too high with mostly average components. When it comes to the geometry, Trek does not go completely crazy. The head tube angle and reach values were chosen with care. The result: A balanced riding behaviour with a good combination of playfulness and straight-line stability.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Trek Rail 5 500 W

If you want to experience the much-vaunted uphill flow, the Rail 5 500 W is a hot candidate for you. Overall, the Rail 5 500 W is a good climber for tours on extreme technical trails. But with a mediocre groupset and an average range there are also criticisms that come with the overall package. The guarantee promise of 25 years provides trust.
