The first thing this reviewer noticed about this bike was the smoothness of the ride. Smoothness is something that is common to most Bosch-powered electric bikes but with the Super Moto X tyres - one of our favourite tyres - the ride is especially velvety.
A Sensitive Creature...in a good way!
The power system on the Trekking 10 is the generation 4 Bosch Performance CX motor. It is extremely sensitive to pedal pressure and gear changes, so you will get a trolley-load of oomph when you increase your pedal pressure or slip into a more efficient gear. You'll never feel like you're going to lose momentum unnecessarily.
Powerful even on the lowest setting
It is amazing how powerful the Eco (economy) setting is on this bike. Nominally, 'eco' is the lowest power setting on the bike but, my goodness, it takes you up hill with zero trouble. Use your gears well and you may never have to use the higher assistance levels until you're carrying large amounts of cargo.
Summary: The reward for the higher price-tag on this trekking bike is the generation 4 Bosch Performance CX motor: so responsive, so smooth and no loss of momentum. A brilliant bike.
As with all our e-bikes, this is available to test-ride. Contact your nearest showroom to reserve your slot.
