If you want the best electric bike that blurs the line between road bikes and mountain bikes, the Trek Dual Sport + Hybrid Bike For Women is the obvious choice as the best e-bikes for women. It adopts specific traits from both families, like a front suspension fork, to create a versatile experience.

Why We Like It – Trek Dual Sport +

Thanks to Trek Dual Sport +’s Shimano Deore drivetrain, you get a 10-speed system to assist the alpha gold lightweight aluminum frame in a wide variety of terrains and situations. But for road bikes, you should read the Trek Domane review.

  • Alpha gold, lightweight aluminum frame
  • 10-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain
  • Shimano MT200 hydraulic disc brakes
  • Top speed of 15.5mph
  • Front and rear lights are average

Durability & Build Quality

The Trek Dual Sport + wanted a bit of everything. An alpha gold aluminum duo trap lightweight frame offers excellent strength, with the added sealed cartridge, while being open to rack fender mounts. By adopting a mountain bike’s front suspension fork, it has the built to tackle the occasional mountain, in addition to XL Bontrager alloy tubeless ready rims.

Performance (Speed & Acceleration)

Similar to the Jetson Bolt Pro folding bike, this one has a max speed of 15.5mph, which doesn’t impress us much. Why? Because that’s on the lower end. What does is its wide range of gears. It blurs the line between a mountain bike and a road bike, performing well on light trails, urban hills, and anything in between. The Liv Thrive E+ 1 Pro provides a bit more punch.

Range & Battery

Ticking away mile after mile isn’t hard with Trek Dual Sport Bikes, not with a road bike rated with a 500Wh battery powering everything. What’s most impressive is it can be fully charged in just under 3 hours! The Cube Kathmandu Hybrid 45 is capable of pushing further, however.

Safety Features

The Trek Dual Sport + is fitted with several safety features that are much appreciated. The frame has internal cable routing to prevent tangling. Its hydraulic brakes are excellent, even during inclement weather, with remote suspension lockout. And its terrain tires are the cherry on top that adds surprisingly good grippage in the event of strange weather. The Lapierre eSensium 300 looks barebones in comparison.


The Trek Dual Sport + is the best bike for women who want to start establishing a biking regimen, but also want the performance to spice things up when the mood strikes. Imagine your current route is stale and, because the bike is sturdy, capable, and versatile, you can hit up the nearest gravel road in a single movement. It also helps that it’s $2900, which lands right into the budget territory.

Trek Dual Sport + Wrap Up

The Trek Dual Sport + is, simply put, a great ride. It’s the perfect blend of typical fitness rides with the ability to change course when you get the feeling, and take off onto a nearby trail. Its alpha gold aluminum frame can handle it, in addition to its 10-speed drivetrain and hydraulic brakes for speed variety and excellent stopping power.
