Dano from our Colchester Revolution Store recently had a chance to get hands-on with the Trek Powerfly 4. He let us have his initial thoughts, we wanted to share them with you: 

lets you travel to destinations that you never thought you’d reach on a mountain bike.

The Review

First thoughts are this is a stunning looking bike. My colour of choice would be bright orange, although it is a close run with grey and black. 
625 or 500 Watt battery with some of the colours, again choices… 
Plenty of attention to detail, quality finish, through axle, etc. Love the way the battery sits in the frame. Very neat. 
The ride is smooth, with the power just flowing in from the CX Bosch motor. I forgot it was an Ebike during the ride. Just enjoyed the experience. 
The bike is ready to go, but mudguards, the rack can be easily fitted and a wiring loom is ready if lights are required. 
Spec is great, but plenty of options to upgrade if you like to make it personal. 
Enjoy ”
