Durability & Build Quality

Made with Tires Bontrager alloy aluminum frame with a padded saddle coming from the Trek Bicycle company. If you take the product compared to the Bulls Ebikes as both are comfort oriented as made most obtuse by the padded seats. Are you also searching for a high volume cargo bike?

Performance (Speed & Acceleration)

Unfortunately the Active Line is the least powerful of Bosch’s motors and caps out at 100 RPM which may not be a good fit for less active riders, the Purion display has only basic features and is not removable, some standard functions such as walk mode are disabled and there are no USB Type-A charging ports. It was according to the reviews an impressively comfortable ride thanks to many small factors such as the suspension seatpost, large 700x45c tires that provide a lower attack angle and more float, ergonomic locking grips, vibration-dampening solid steel fork, and a wide and comfortable seat.

Range & Battery

A Bosch Purion controller, and a 400Wh battery is the power soces for the bikeThis combination works great on the Verve+ . It is designed for riders who don’t mind getting active or want to get back in the shape they were in a year ago, the fitness rides in other words.The motor is also quite stealthy and will provide you with a decent range on Eco mode.

Safety features

The Shimano MT200 hydraulic disc lowstep brakes like on the Cube compact electric bike, the Verve+ offer reliable all-weather braking power. They conveniently allow you to ride confidently in any kind of weather and will stop the bike on a dime even on wet surfaces. These little hydraulic disc brakes are also user friendly as they need little pressure on the brake levers to engage, giving you all the confidence required. The adjustable levers are also handy for users with smaller hands.


Is the bike at least reliable and with or without the rack fender mounts? Well bottom line yes with it’s wide tires and the Shimano Altus the Trek hybrid can function with or without the engine, though if you have any problem even if it’s the seat post the warranty will ensure you can have the part replaced or fixed.

Trek Verve+ Wrap Up

It is a great bike rated high by a verified buyer, there were also a large number of buyer verified reviews that mostly agreed with that one, will we tell you we would recommend or advise against this bike, technically yes. It should be mentioned that on Amazon they have a high number of stars submitted and hold a high ranking putting it in the same area of quality as the Schwinn Voyageur.
