The Sinus Tria 9 e-bike is a trekking bike designed long distance tours. It is sturdy, reliable, easily maneuverable and comfortable.

The bike weighs 13 kg, 28 lbs but, like all e-bikes, the excess weight is trumped by the power boost.
The five drive modes — Off, Eco, Tour, Sport, Turbo — are easily accessed via the control unit mounted on the handlebars. The 500 watt li-ion battery permits distances up to 250km, 155 miles at an average speed of 20 km/h on Eco mode. On a single charge the e-bike covers 90 km, 56 miles. The Bosch compact rapid charger weighs less than 600g, 1.3 lbs and fully charges in two hours. See Tria 9 Specs
