The Hybrid AL e Trail pushes the boundaries of possibility with every ride. Powerful pedal assistance, distance-shrinking range and handy features are designed to make your daily rides quicker and easier in every way possible. A low step-over design for ease of use and bump-smoothing suspension delivering a comfortable ride, no matter where the trail may take you.


Whether you ride for transportation, fitness or just the fun of it, the Hybrid AL e Trail lets you explore faster, further, and in greater comfort. This easy-to-use and rugged electric bike is a stylish and fun get around that's perfect for a scenic detour along forest paths, towpaths and trails.


Utilising the latest e-bike technology, the superlight MAHLE hub drive motor delivers a ride that’s so natural that you could be forgiven for forgetting that it’s electric. With three power modes to choose from, offering as much or as little assistance as you need. A handy walk mode feature provides a little extra boost of assistance should you need to dismount and push the bike along.


Smooth out the ride with 60mm of bump-smoothing suspension upfront working in tandem with a suspension seat post to absorb the vibrations from rough surfaces. Enjoy complete peace of mind with the natural suspension and grip offered by the ultra-reliable, puncture-proof Schwalbe Marathon 35mm tyres.


Ergonomically designed handlebars deliver a comfortable and upright riding position for a commanding view of the road and the scenery ahead. Fitted with the iWoc Trio control interface which allows you to control the motor assist level at the touch of a button.


Keep track of your battery level and capture ride data with a smart display that offers connectivity to the e-bike's system. Change motor assist levels, turn on the lights and view remaining range, all from one screen. With minimal energy consumption and a long-life battery you'll never have to worry about it running out of juice mid-ride.


The little things make a big difference and that's why the Hybrid AL e Trail comes fully kitted out for the trail and city streets. A rack offers quick and easy carrying, robust alloy mudguards to fend off the dirt, powerful integrated lights and a kickstand for easy parking.

Frequently Asked
Is it possible to test ride the bike?

You can test ride any of our e-bikes and receive expert buying advice at our flagship Clitheroe showroom. Please contact the showroom in advance so that we can ensure that any suitable bikes that you wish to test are available for your visit. During the summer months, we also host demo events at various locations across the UK. For details of the dates and times of these events please refer to our events page.

Alternatively, you can hire the e-bike from E-Venture Bikes in Keswick, the rental cost will then be deducted from your purchase should you decide to buy one of our e-bikes. We also hope to be able to reinstate the Ribble roadshows which travel around the UK offering people the opportunity to test ride our bikes. We will update the events page of our website and share the details via our social channels once we have any events confirmed.

Will I have full control of the bike?

Yes, this is a pedal-assisted e-bike and always requires rider input. When a power assistance level is selected the motor provides a smooth and consistent boost of power to each pedal stroke.

Do I need tax or insurance to ride this bike?

No, as a pedal-assisted e-bike, limited to a maximum speed of 25kph/15mph you are not required to hold a valid driver’s licence, pay tax, or take out insurance.

How much does it weigh?

The bike with all of its integrated accessories weighs in at 19.5kgs in a medium size.

What size bike do I need?

The Hybrid AL e Trail is available in Small/Medium to fit rider heights 5’0” to 5’6” (155-167cm) and Large/X-Large 5’6” to 5’9” (168-175cm).

How do I control how much power the motor delivers?

Three power settings are available at the press of a button, low, medium, and max assistance, so you can select the setting that you need to suit the terrain. The bike comes fitted with an iWoc Trio control unit that is mounted for convenience to the handlebars. You can cycle through the assistance levels simply by clicking the upper or lower buttons without having to remove your hands from the handlebars or take your eyes off the road ahead. Check out our blog for a step by step guide to how to operate our e-bikes.

How fast can I go on the Hybrid AL e Trail?

The motor system will provide assistance up to 15mph, at which point (by law with all e-bikes in the UK) the motor will cut out. If you then drop below 15mph the system will automatically kick back in when required.

What is the range of the Hybrid AL e Trail?

This is dependent upon many factors including rider weight/fitness, route profile and ambient temperature. A rider of 90kgs, on a varied route that includes climbs, descents and flats can expect an average distance of approximately 60-miles.

Can I ride this bike in the wet?

The electric components used on our e-bikes are IP54 rated. They are protected against splashing, but not against full immersion. The electric bike should never be subjected to pressurised water from a hose pipe or jet wash. Failure to adhere to this may result in damage to the electrical components that comprise the motor system. When transporting the bike on the outside of a vehicle a waterproof cover should be used to ensure the protection of the electronic components from water ingress during transportation.

How long does it take to charge the battery?

From fully depleted, the battery reaches full capacity in just 3.5 hours and can be charged from any household power socket.

How will I know how much battery remains?

The handlebar mounted iWoc Trio control button has built in LED’s which display how much battery power remains. It displays this using a simple traffic light system, white indicates a full charge, progressing down through Green, Amber, and finally Red to indicate that there is 25% or less remaining. The Pulsar One computer also displays relevant system data so you can keep track of your remaining battery power and have all of the ride date at your fingertips.

What is the widest tyre that I can fit?

The widest tyre that can be accommodated is 40mm.

What if I get a puncture?

It is just as simple as fixing a puncture on a normal bike, except you first need to disconnect the rear wheel by unclipping the connector at the chainstay and releasing the wheel nuts on the axle. Once the puncture has been repaired you simply bolt the wheel back on and connect the cable once again.

What sort of a pump will I need?

The most common type of inner tube valve is the Presta high-pressure valve, and this is what this bike comes fitted with. There are a couple of options in terms of a pump, firstly you want something that can be carried either on the bike or in a jersey pocket. The most popular types are.

  • Mini Pump – A small pump that normally includes a clip that can be bolted onto a bottle cage mount on the bike or that is small enough to fit into a cycling jersey pocket or bag.
  • CO2 pump – CO2 pumps use a pressurised CO2 canister to inflate the inner tube, much faster and much more efficient. The only drawback is that a full canister is required for a roadside repair.
  • Hybrid Pump – Some models of pump are compatible with CO2 canisters as well as having the option to inflate the tube normally. The best of both worlds.

Combi Lock

For those occasions when you do not need a really high security lock, this cable Combi Lock is a great choice for places like a cafe stop. Lightweight but still relatively strong it will stop any opportunist riding away with your bicycle if you turn your back for a few seconds. The resettable combination lock means that there is no need to carry any keys around with you. It’s also long enough to feed through a few bikes and around something secure.

Range Extender Battery

Extend your ride and travel further than ever before with the MAHLE battery extender. This handy addition takes the place of an existing bottle cage mount and plugs directly into the charger port above the bikes bottom bracket and when utilised extends the range by an impressive 70% . When combined with the internally mounted main battery it almost doubles the capacity to a total of 456W/h, allowing you to ride on full assist for up to an extra 2 hours.
