Whilst it goes without saying that Triumph are more commonly associated with their impressive motorcycles it was only a matter of time perhaps before they threw their hat into the electric bike ring and, let us tell you, it is one impressive hat. The Triumph Trekker GT Electric Bike has a price tag of £2950 which, given the capabilities of this eye-catching steed and the first class features it possesses, represents pretty good value for money in our opinion here at Coolector HQ.
The Triumph Trekker GT Electric Bike is born from the brand’s passion for two-wheeled performance and riding fun and they have brought this together for the very first time with the latest in e-drive bicycle technology alongside Triumph’s world renowned elegant style, comfort, quality and unparalleled finish. If you’re after an e-bike this year and want one of the best in the business, look no further.
The new Trekker GT from Triumph is the ideal all-road choice for commuting, fitness and everyday riding fun. It is enhanced by high specification branded equipment which includes premium components from Shimano and RockShox, and its high performing Shimano e-drive that won’t let you down wherever your urban adventures take you. It combines performance engineering and a top class array of components with the latest iteration of Shimano’s battery and drivetrain technology and the Trekker GT is the very first e-cycle in Triumph’s 118-year history.
Designed in the UK by Triumph’s world leading team of engineers and designers, the elegant frame of the Triumph Trekker GT Electric Bike (£2950) combined with the narrow-width handlebars and the ultra-comfort of the Selle Royal Vivo saddle, delivers the optimal ergonomics and great rider control whatever your riding style and terrains you’re tackling.
The Trekker GT’s lightweight hydro-formed 6061 aluminium frame elegantly houses the bicycle’s fully integrated lockable lithium-ion battery and it features high-performance Shimano Deore M6000 brakes with 180mm/160mm discs, and super-silent Shimano Deore Shadow 10-speed rapid fire shifters and rear mechanism. The RockShox Paragon forks have 65mm of travel and feature Rockshox Turnkey damper with adjustment and lock out.
