Powerfly FS 5 is a versatile, confidence-inspiring, full suspension electric mountain bike. This 130mm trail bike features the extra boost of a powerful Bosch motor, a RockShox fork, a trail-tough Shimano drivetrain, and a durable Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame with Removable Integrated Battery (RIB) for better balance on the trail, great looks, and exceptional ease of use.
It's right for you if...
You want to bring more capability to your mountain biking in the form of a high-performance pedal-assist system. You know an e-bike can change your life and you want the plush ride of a full-suspension mountain bike that will stand up to more rugged and technical trails.
The tech you get
A durable Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame that fully encases a long-range 500Wh battery, a powerful Bosch Performance CX drive system that helps you sustain speeds of up to 20 mph, and an ergonomic Purion controller. Plus, a 130mm front and rear travel with a RockShox Recon RL fork, a dropper post, Tubeless Ready Bontrager Kovee 23 rims, a 10-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain, and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes.
The final word
This bike pairs electric-assist performance with singletrack trail capability. It's a fun, forgiving, full suspension ride with an upgraded fork, dropper post, and tubeless-ready wheels that can help you reach new destinations on rugged trails.
Why you'll love it
- Trek's Removable Integrated Battery (RIB) system looks great and is super user-friendly: it fully hides the battery in the frame for protection, makes it easy to remove the battery without tools, and lets you mount a water bottle cage—even on full suspension e-MTBs.
- For e-MTB, full suspension is a game-changer: it soaks up rugged terrain so you can ride the Bosch pedal-assist system to its full potential.
- It's equipped with an external charging port for easy charging on or off the bike.
- It rides like a mountain bike because it is one: it has the same frame and suspension tech we've refined in our decades-long trail heritage.
- The Purion controller has Walk Assist and an intelligent eMTB mode that automatically delivers the right amount of power based on your terrain.
A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.
Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.
Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
