Trek has long been a major player in the cycling industry, known for its innovative approach. As the popularity of cycling continues to rise worldwide, it's no surprise that Trek, along with other top bike brands, has embraced the e-bike trend. Currently, Trek offers an impressive 91 e-bike models on its website, with the all-new FX+ 2 soon to make it 92.

The FX+ 2 is a lightweight urban e-bike designed for entry-level riders and those curious about e-bikes but not looking to spend a fortune. Despite its simplicity, the FX+ 2 is versatile, easy to ride, and packed with reliable technology.

To ensure a comfortable fit, the Trek FX+ 2 comes in multiple frame sizes based on height, and is available in both step-through and step-over configurations. This allows riders of all sizes to find the perfect fit. Regardless of the frame type, the FX+ 2 weighs just 17 kilograms (37 pounds).

For performance, the FX+ 2 relies on Taiwanese e-bike powertrain specialist Hyena, with a rear hub-mounted motor delivering 40 Nm (29.5 pound-feet) of torque. The motor is powered by a 250-watt-hour battery integrated into the downtube, providing a claimed range of 56 kilometers (35 miles) on a single charge.

Additional features include Bluetooth smartphone pairing for access to the Trek Central mobile app, allowing riders to monitor ride stats and adjust motor settings. The bike also features a Shimano Altus nine-speed drivetrain and Promax F1 DSK-927 hydraulic disc brakes.

Currently, the Trek FX+ 2 is available at a discounted price of $1,999 USD on Trek's official US website, down from the standard price of $2,499 USD. If you're considering joining the e-bike trend, the Trek FX+ 2 is a great starting point.
