Trek unveils all-new Super Commuter+
All-new e-bike lineup aims to change urban transportation
Trek has unveiled an extraordinary new line of electric bikes, highlighted by the flagship Super Commuter+, that will indelibly alter the way people move in urban regions around the world. Born of Trek’s best engineering minds working in close partnership with its Netherlands-based development and design team, the all-new Super Commuter+ is a complete departure from electric bikes of the past. Drawing from over 15 years of e-bike innovation and in collaboration with respected partner Bosch, the team has created the most advanced lineup of electric bikes the cycling industry has ever witnessed.
Every element of Super Commuter+ was meticulously designed from the ground up to be part of a greater whole—the sleekest, most striking, and most powerful Trek e-bike ever.
More power, more possibility
With the most powerful electric drivetrain and longest lasting battery to date, Super Commuter+ signals the next step in Trek’s continued commitment to developing the world’s most innovative electric bikes. Like all Trek e-bikes, Super Commuter+ employs pedal-assist technology that boosts a rider’s power and extends speed and distance capabilities. Two of the four models in the lineup—8S and 9S—feature Bosch’s Performance Speed 350-watt motor, and all models are equipped with Bosch’s long-life 500wH battery, allowing riders to go farther and faster than ever on a single charge.
Super Commuter+’s long-life battery is integrated into the frame’s downtube for a sleek, seamless look, and each Super Commuter+ model is equipped with the ultra-powerful SuperNova M99 lighting system. The integrated head and tail lights deliver outstanding visibility in all hours of the day and night and charge off of the battery, eliminating the need to charge lights separately.
Super Commuter+ also features an elegant Bosch Purion control display and Trek’s exclusive Motor Armor for additional protection to the weatherproof Bosch system. Commuters will love the integrated low-profile Tubus rack, fenders, and derailleur cover that come standard on all Super Commuter+ models. The MTB-style chain guide virtually eliminates chain-drop, even over rough terrain, and braze-ons under the top tube make it easy to integrate accessories.
Performance that goes the distance
With maximum sustained speeds of 45kph on select models in select markets, Super Commuter+ makes covering long distances in speed and comfort a reality. For the first time, replacing one’s car with a bike is a real possibility for more people around the world.
Super Commuter+ was created to stand up to the harshest terrain, day-in and day-out. Wide, high-volume, 27.5+ x 2.4˝ Schwalbe Super Moto-X tires combat potholes and roadway debris, while 180mm direct-mount hydraulic disc brakes and a carbon fiber e2 fork deliver confident all-weather stopping power in any conditions. 9 and 9S models feature a NuVinci N380 internal gear hub, while Super Commuter+ 8 and 8S are equipped with a Shimano 11-speed drive train.
Oh, the possibilities
Awe-inspiring design and painstaking attention to detail, combined with the best in Trek’s bike technologies from 40 years driving bicycle innovation, make Super Commuter+ the new standard in urban mobility.
All models in the Super Commuter+ lineup will be available for purchase through Trek’s wide network of retail partners in Europe beginning March 15. Super Commuter+ 8S is currently available for order in the US through US Trek retailers, with delivery expected June 1.
Super Commuter+ is available in sizes 45, 50, 55 and 60cm.
