Trek Rail 2020 – Full Suspension E-Bike

Trek Rail 2020

trek rail 2020

The wait is finally over, we can reveal the hottest e-bike that we have all been waiting for the new Trek Rail 2020 – fitted with the new ultra compact Bosch motor!

The all-new Trek Rail is the e-MTB for riders who consider the trail a second home – just think of this bike being an electric Trek Slash! It shreds just as hard as its non-electric brethren, then powers you right back up the mountain.

Available with aluminium and carbon models, every Trek Rail model has Bosch’s new ultra compact and lightweight Performance Line CX motor, 150mm of rear travel suspension, 29″ wheels and trail-worthy tech that will help you push your limits right to the edge.

Bosch brings a new standard of power and performance to the trail with the all-new Performance Line CX drive system. It’s over a kilo lighter than the previous Performance CX Motor, nearly 50% smaller and it delivers more range and less drag than ever before.

Going down or up, the Trek Rail rips trails like the trail bike it is, based on Trek Slash geometry this bike will be capable to handle the most aggressive terrain. Every model is built with a 160 mm fork and 150 mm of rear wheel travel and select models have a RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft shock that gives you more capability to tear through rough terrain.

Compared to the Trek Powerfly FS this bike has had some big changes to the geometry:

  • 27mm Shorter chainstays due to the new compact motor.
  • Reach has increased by 11 to 27 mm depending on the frame size.
  • Head angle has become slacker to 64.5°
  • 19mm lower bottom bracket.

All with the mino link in the lower position.

Trek Rail is backed by Trek’s decades-long trail bike heritage. It features the same proven frame and suspension tech as Trek’s most capable non-electric bikes, including Active Braking Pivot (ABP), Mino Link adjustable geometry and Straight Shot down tube with Knock Block.

Trek’s Removable Integrated Battery (RIB) system integrates the battery into the frame for protection and gives you easy, tool-free, drive-side access. Turn the key and the battery pops out. It’s that simple.

6 Models to choose from, 3 alloy and 3 carbon.

Cookson Cycles Children in Need Challenge – Land’s End to John O’Groats!!

The staff at Cookson Cycles have set themselves the momentous challenge of riding the distance of Land’s End to John O’Groats (874Miles) over 6 days in store for Children In Need.

We will have a dedicated turbo trainer set up in store, using Zwift virtual cycling software with an Elite Drivo Smart trainer to record the distance. Staff members will take it in turns to cover the gruelling 874miles between them during opening hours from Monday 13th November through to Saturday 18th November, all for Children in Need.

To give this challenge some context, we will need to ride 145miles a day – this means we need to average just over 18 mph for 8hrs a day over the 6 days!!!

Come in and support us!! There will be a Children in Need cake stand where you can buy cake, coffee and tea, with all proceeds going to Children in Need. We will also have a raffle with lots of prizes from our suppliers.

So why not come in and enjoy a coffee or tea and cake while cheering the team on!!

As well as the target distance, we are also hoping to smash a fundraising target of £1000 for Children in Need – you can sponsor us online here or donate in store. All support will be very gratefully received.

Trek Boone 2018 the Cyclocross superbike

Trek Boone – All-new cyclocross superbike

Trek Boone

Trek have updated their excellent Boone cyclocross bike – now equipped with front and rear IsoSpeed

Trek has unveiled all-new Boone models that are sure to dominate the cyclocross circuit this season. Debuted by Telenet-Fidea and Katie Compton in the 2016/17 Cyclocross World Cup race season, new Boone models were built with input from pro racers to ensure the strongest, fastest and lightest ride possible.

The all-new Boone is smoother and more balanced than ever before, with front and rear IsoSpeed decouplers that smooth out the course and double vertical compliance for stronger and longer rides. Riders further benefit from Boone’s ultra-lightweight OCLV Carbon frame with built-in Carbon Armor that protects against even the roughest courses. Boone’s proven Pro CX race geometry brings it all together for a powerful, fast and smooth ride.

Order all-new Boone today!

All Boone models also come stock with flat mount disc brakes and 12mm thru-axles for superior braking and handling, even on the muddiest, rockiest and rootiest courses. Boone’s cyclocross capabilities are furthered with a 1x drivetrain and newly designed 3S chain keeper that keep riders rolling towards the podium, and a specially designed top tube makes shouldering easier as well, for the lightest, quietest and and most versatile cable management system that allows any combination of shift and brake cable setups.

Boone also boasts an all-new, cross-specific CrossLock Water Bottle Cage that allows riders to remove the cage when they line up to race (available here), and use the cage for easy-to-access hydration when they train or warm up. The cage is also available separately and will work with any standard water bottle mounts.

Boone comes in the following models:

Trek 2018 Bikes

Trek 2018 Bikes

Great news for us all, is that Trek have released their 2018 bikes early and from what we have seen so far, its going to be a great year for Trek bikes! here a few key bikes and changes we have picked up on…

new Trek Emonda, lighter than before, disc brake options, more direct mount brakes, what’s not to like of Trek’s lightweight road bikes?! We currently have in stock (21/07/2017) the Emonda SL 6, which has the new fantastic Shimano Ultegra R8000 groupset on. The base carbon Emonda S has gone, but to replace those models we have great priced Tiagra equipped SL frame and higher equipped aluminium ALR models coming with new carbon Bontrager wheels. Other Trek Emonda models are on the way and by mid-September we expect most of the range to be in store.

To run alongside the lightweight Emonda, we also carry in store super popular Trek Domane – this has been one of our bestselling road bikes over the last few years and now with front ISO speed, 28 & 32 C tires, this road bike just loves covering the miles with speed and comfort!

For those that like to ride off road, the Trek Fuel EX 8 is proving to be very popular for us so far, with choices of the new SRAM GX 12 Speed Eagle, Shimano XT 2×11 and 29 or 27 Plus wheels, we should have a bike that can just about do anything! Carbon models with project one paint options available too for those that fancy something custom and more tricked out!!!

Fitted to the Trek Slash, carbon EX and carbon remedy models is the new Thru-Shock from Trek. This new feature is availably exclusively to Trek bikes only for 2 years. You can read about thru-shaft here on pink bike.

If you haven’t already noticed, but 29″ wheels are now working they way into the DH scene and with Trek bikes being one on of the 1st major bike brands to get behind 29er, they are also one of the 1st to make a 29er DH rig. Available as a frame and fork only, if you are interested be quick as these will only be made in small numbers!

Trek have updated their e-mountain bikes for 2018 and it’s great to see Trek bikes have continued to use the excellent Bosch power units – with integrated batteries across most of the Powerfly range which helps lower the weight for better control of the bike, each bike is fitted with the largest capacity (500wH) battery powering the most powerful motor (performance CX), all controlled using the neat Purion unit! Each bike that leaves the store, is updated by our Bosch trained workshop too!

We could go on through the full range of bikes here, Madone, Neko, Dual Sport, Roscoe, Dual Sport, FX, Zektor, Marlin, X-Caliber, ProCaliber, Top Fuel, Remedy, Slash, Session, kids bikes .. the list goes on, you can just about guarantee Trek will make a bike that suits your needs. Have a look through the Trek 2018 range on our site or pop in store and take a look and with 0% finance available along with buy now pay later, there isn’t a better time than now to get yourself a new Trek bike!
