 The Trek Lift+ Lowstep gives every rider the chance to ride more, ride further, and enjoy every mile!

  Trek's entry into the electric-assist world isn't a hub-driven afterthought. Far from it! The Lift+ Lowstep takes Shimano's STEPS power-assist technology and adds practicality as well as performance. Long rides with friends on the bike path, windy days and grocery store trips are just a few of the options that might've been less appealing (or downright frustrating) in the past. A step-though frame makes climbing aboard a breeze! Trek's easy crank-forward frame design makes stopping and starting easier than ever.

Electric-assist bicycles need to be efficient and capable, ready to do more than just help the rider up a hill. Trek started with a light Alpha Gold aluminum frame and added Shimano's STEPS power-assist motor in a dedicated mount at the bottom. STEPS -or Shimano Total Electric Power System- allows the mid-mount motor to add power to the rider's own efforts at the crankset rather than the wheel. This isn't a motorcycle-style "throttle-twist" system, but a way to smoothly add power while pedaling. The amount of power assist can be selected with the left-side controls on the handlebar. Three power levels (Eco, Normal and High) can be selected with increasing amounts of power assist. Speed, range and level of power assist is shown on a digital display at the center of the handlebar, giving the rider a clear idea of range and performance. After the rider reaches 20mph, the power assist simply stops; downhills and tailwinds can sometimes be more helpful than an electric motor! With a rechargeable battery mounted on the frame's downtube, the center of gravity of the Lift+ stays low for better handling and braking. Recharging takes 4 hours from a completely empty battery, but 80% of the battery charge can be done in only 2 hours. The battery for the Lift+ can be unlocked and brought inside for charging.

The Lift+ is more than just a bike with a motor and a battery. There's plenty more to it! Trek chose Shimano's 10-speed Deore shifter and rear derailleur for drivetrain duty, adding fingertip operation and long service life. A Shimano Tiagra 11-32T rear cassette boasts a wide gearing range for tackling steep climbs, even in Eco mode. Hydraulic Shimano disc brakes add confident stopping power, even in wet and messy conditions. The Lift+ features alloy Bontrager wheels shod with Bontrager's wide H2 Hard-Case 26x2.00" tires, adding a smooth feel on bumpy surfaces. Speaking of bumpy, a commuting bike wouldn't be worth riding if the saddle was terrible. Bontrager's padded seat will convince you they had all-day comfort in mind. An adjustable alloy stem and swept back handlebar are topped off with long-tail ergo grips for hand comfort.

This bicycle comes with a battery charger.
