Powerfly LT 9.7 is a carbon electric mountain bike with long-travel suspension and a high-end parts spec. This high-performance e-MTB is built to take you into the wild unknown to rip up and down whatever mountains you'll find. The OCLV Carbon frame fully hides the battery for clean looks and protection on rugged trails.
It's right for you if...
Rugged terrain, wild trails, big adventures—this is the stuff that gets your heart racing. You're looking for an e-MTB with the major performance upgrade of a carbon frame, and you want a high-quality parts spec and suspension package to match.
The tech you get
A lightweight and trail-tough OCLV Mountain Carbon main frame that fully encases a long-range 500Wh battery for great aesthetics and protection on the trail, a Bosch Performance CX 250-watt motor that assists up to 20 mph, and an ergonomic Bosch Purion controller. Plus, a 160mm RockShox Yari RL fork, grippy 27.5+ mid-fat tires, Tubeless Ready Bontrager Line Comp 40 wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive hub, a dropper post, 1x12 SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain, and 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes.
The final word
For all the performance advantages of Powerfly LT 9.7's trail-ready spec, it's the lightweight OCLV Mountain Carbon main frame that sets it apart from all others. It's lighter, faster, and has the good looks worthy of a trail bike of this caliber.
Why you'll love it
1 - 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
2 - OCLV Mountain Carbon main frame with alloy stays make for a bike that's light and trail-tough, Longer travel suspension and 27.5+ mid-fat tires are the perfect combination for traction, stability, and capability on rough trails
3 - Dropper posts and 1x12 drivetrains are two of the best mountain bike innovations in recent years—this bike has both
4 - 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
