HIT THE TRAILOur F5 Trail is built for on or off-road travels, there is no limit to where you can ride! Looking for adventure? This is your bike.
INTEGRATED LITHIUM BATTERY
An integrated 48V (650/840WH) lithium-ion battery in the down-tube offers both great looks and long range-riding. High capacity cells, the same ones used in the Tesla Model S, give you up-to 50+ miles of range. Charging time is about 6 hours for a full charge cycle.
500W MID-DRIVE MOTOR
The Bafang M600 mid-drive motor is among the most advanced and powerful mid-drive motors in its class. Though compact, it offers 500 Watts (120Nm) of smooth power for optimum hill climbing, range, and speed. Add the optional thumb throttle for additional speed control and smooth cruising.
4-Piston Hydraulic Disc Brakes
Magura MT5 4 piston hydraulic brakes offer outstanding braking force - perfect for the bike park or your home trail. Expect great stopping power and smooth lever action.
10-Speed Shimano Drivetrain
The 10 speed Shimano Deore drivetrain was chosen especially for the smooth pedaling options it offers. Whether you’re climbing hills or accelerating on the flats – the 11-36T cassette gear ratio allows the mid-drive motor to shine.
Very happy with the FLX F5 electric mountain bike. It is nimble, responsive, and very quiet. With the mid-drive motor it rides very much like a non-electric mountain bke, which I like better than a rear drive motor (which I also have in my Gladiator 1)). I only have ridden 22 miles, all on flat terrain, so I haven't put it to the test on the rough canyon trails and hills. But I will do that soon. I anticipate that it will perform well there. The website specs say it weighs 61 pounds. They don't mention it but that 61 pounds would be with the bigger battery and with the touring package incljuded (rack, lights, fenders, phone holder, and bottle rack holder). So the bike without the touring package or the larger battery would be a few pounds less than that.
This Trail 5 is even better than the last Trail 5 I purchased. I got the features of the touring model this time and the Bafang motor is perfectly quiet. Probably the best eBike on the market for the money.
I received my F5 Trail and could not be happier with my purchase. Bike was expertly packed and was ready to ride after about 30 minutes of assembly. The hardest part was removing all the zip ties and packing around the frame. The brakes and gear set up was perfectly tuned with no adjustments needed.
I have put over 50 miles on the bike over the last week. The motor kicks in when needed. I have noticed about a 3 mph gain over my normal speeds. I ride like I am 10 years younger.
Would recommend this bike to anyone looking for an e trail rider.
The 5 different levels of pedal assists definitely help, and purchasing a throttle is a must when you don’t wanna pedal. The bike is suited for off road than cruising on the streets. Tested the bike before purchasing, and Jon and the fellas at FLX headquarters were awesome.
At 64 years old this has been a huge game changer. It’s like being 18 again on a bicycle. The handling and acceleration after 130 miles is incredible. The brakes can have you stop on a dime. I have driven this on flatland dirt and asphalt. Spent many hours climbing mountain fire roads and trails.This E bike has exceeded all of my expectations.
