Rail 9.7 is a long-travel carbon electric mountain bike that gets you to the fun stuff faster. It feels and rides just like our rowdiest trail bikes, and it's built with the same trail-specific tech. The difference is that the powerful Bosch drive system zips up climbs so you can spend less time grinding and more time getting rad.
It's right for you if…
You're looking for a super capable long-travel e-MTB that's built to conquer techy runs and big drops. You want the lightweight and responsive ride of an OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with a high-powered motor to get to more descents faster.
The tech you get
An OCLV Mountain Carbon frame that fully encases a 625Wh battery, a 160mm RockShox Domain fork, 150mm of rear travel with a RockShox Deluxe Select+ shock, a Bosch Performance Line CX 250W motor. A 1x12 Shimano SLX/XT drivetrain, Bontrager Line dropper post, powerful 4-piston brakes for confident descents, and Bontrager Line Comp 30 29er wheels that are already completely tubeless-ready, including sealant.
The final word
Rail 9.7 hits the sweet spot of carbon performance and amazing value. It's spec'd with quality trail-specific parts and a powerful Bosch drive system so you can send it through the rough stuff and motor right back up for another run.
Why you'll love it:
- The Bosch motor gives you plenty of power for tackling steep climbs with the efficiency to keep exploring all day. Rider-friendly features like Walk Assist and eMTB mode help you make the most of every ride
- Made with the same hard-charging frame tech as Remedy, like Mino Link adjustable geometry, a Straight Shot down tube for extra stiffness, and Active Braking Pivot (ABP)
- The full-color Kiox display shows ride info, connects with your Bluetooth enabled devices, and has a built-in theft prevention feature
- 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 remove the battery without tools and lets you mount a water bottle cage
Bosch Performance Line CX motor
Bosch Performance Line CX sets the standard for eMTB performance with up to 85Nm of torque and an intelligent eMTB mode with Extended Boost that automatically adjusts the amount of assist based on the terrain.
Custom eMTB Lite mode
Trek eMTBs feature a custom eMTB Lite mode in place of Tour mode. It gives you more natural-feeling power delivery and longer battery life.
Removable Integrated Battery
RIB is a one-piece battery and cover with a built-in handle that can easily be removed and re-installed in the frame with no tools and no hassle. It’s the most convenient way to remove your battery for transport, security, or just easier charging.
Active Braking Pivot
Active Braking Pivot allows our engineers to tune how the suspension reacts to acceleration and braking forces independently. That means you get more confident control when you need it most.
