Meet the Rail with Bosch’s new performance drive unit, which just snatched two EWS-E podiums

Bosch eBike Systems developed an all-new drive unit that is lighter, more aggressive and more responsive

Trek’s enduro riders got to close the season on a brand new ride!

The Trek Rail was designed to be Trek’s most capable e-mountain bike, able to crush steep climbs and shred the gnarliest of descents. With its all-new CX Race Limited Edition drive unit, Bosch eBike Systems is helping the Rail push the limits of performance. The unit was designed with racing in mind. And after just one race, it has already landed on an EWS-E podium twice.

Trek Factory Racing Enduro’s Hattie Harnden and Trek ambassador (and one of mountain biking’s all-time legends) Tracy Moseley, took second and third, respectively, during the final race of the 2022 EWS-E series in Finale Ligure, Italy, on Thursday. The Rail, with the CX-R drive unit, powered their rides.

Bosch’s new drive unit is designed to take eMTB racing to the next level. Its exclusive race mode features a prolonged Extended Boost function, which helps riders conquer the toughest features on the trail.

The drive unit is also more aggressive and responsive, with 85nM of torque and support for up to 400 percent of the rider’s own power. It’s light too, weighing in at just 2.75 kilograms, or 6.1 pounds.

In short, it’s up for any challenge, and a ton of fun. Visit Bosch’s web site to learn more about the CX-R drive unit, and check out images of the bikes in action from Finale:
