New Trek Super Commuter+ e-bike has option of continuously variable transmission

Trek says that its new Super Commuter+ e-bike is the pinnacle of e-bike technology

Trek’s new e-bike is powered by a Bosch Performance CX motor, with its battery integrated into the bike’s frame. It puts out up to 250 Watts for speeds of up to 25kph.

Power comes from Bosch’s PowerPack500, which gives 500Wh, is lockable to the bike’s frame but removable too. The motor’s control unit sits on the left side of the bars and includes a backlit speedometer, range indicator and service interval indicator. There are two buttons on the unit’s left side to allow the rider to scroll through functions without taking their hand off the bars.

He’s been cycling for a lot longer than that though and his travels by bike have taken him all around Europe and to California. He’s been riding gravel since before gravel bikes existed too, riding a cyclocross bike through the Chilterns and along the South Downs.
