All New Trek E-Caliber
A Lighter, More Natural Feeling Electric Mountain Bike
What is the Trek E-Caliber?
The Trek E-Caliber is an electrified version of their widely popular Supercaliber XC race bike. It’s one of the lightest electric mountain bikes on the market and aims to create a more natural and nimble experience on big rides where the climbs are just as important as the descents.
You'll love the E-Caliber if
The Trek E-Caliber is for riders who want the ability to ride longer and farther, but don’t need a heavy, long-travel e-bike that’s geared more towards downhill.
It’s for mountain bikers who love the challenge of taking on epic climbs as much as owning fast descents.
And it’s for riders who want the option to be able to turn their electric bike into a non motorized trail shredder in a flash.

The lightest electric mountain bike yet
The E-Caliber is Trek’s lightest electric mountain bike. The top tier AXS model weighs in at only 35 lbs with the battery and drive system in, and under 29lbs without. This bike is made to sprint and climb with the best of them.
Infinite tailwinds with the Fazua drive system
The Fazua drive system is perfect for the lighter characteristics of the E-Caliber. Fazua’s all-new “Black Pepper” mtb tune offers more subtle assistance that seems less like a powerful boost you’d find on other e-bikes and more like riding with a constant tailwind. You’ll still get in a great workout and the bike will feel much more natural.
Removable drive system for unassisted challenges
All Trek’s electric bikes ride perfectly well without the help of the battery and motor, but the E-Caliber goes a step further and allows you to completely replace the Fazua drive unit with a lightweight frame cover so you can drop 6 lbs and ride au naturale. There’s zero resistance from the motor when riding unassisted, and the frame cover doubles as additional storage space for ride essentials.
Best of hardtail efficiency and full suspension control
The 60mm of lightweight IsoStrut rear travel gives the E-Caliber more control, comfort, and traction than a regular hardtail without slowing it down. It’s the perfect amount of travel to keep you rolling quicker through the rough sections while maintaining efficiency on the uphills and sprints.
120mm of XC ready travel
With 10mm of additional travel over the Supercaliber, the E-Caliber’s 120mm fork gives you plenty of downhill control without taking away from the bike’s purpose as a lightning fast XC weapon. You’ll be able to dominate the descents with confidence without sacrificing your speed everywhere else.
User-friendly remote with screen-free handlebar controls
There are no distracting screens on this e-bike, just a compact handlebar-mounted remote that’s sleek and easy to use. Engage the motor with a simple button and toggle through the 3 levels of assist for an intuitive, unintrusive riding experience.
E-Caliber Geometry and Fit
The E-Caliber has a few geometry changes from the Supercaliber that helps it handle better at higher speeds so you can really push your limits.
The head tube angle has been slackened to 69° from the Supercaliber’s 67.5° and the reach has also been lengthened by 10-15mm depending on the size.
