The Trefecta DRT is a Supercar Among e-Bikes

Some companies are out to change the game. Trefecta Mobility isn't. Rather, the Swiss, Dutch and German engineering alliance behind the company has a self-proclaimed mission of creating a new game... and the playing field is in personal mobility.  Meet their creation, the Trefecta DRT. It has pedals, a battery pack, and an electric motor like many other e-bikes. But in the scheme of things, it's more Lamborghini or Ferrari than anything else.

Hop on and you'll be able to crank the DRT e-bike up to speeds of 44 mph and across a distance of over 60 miles... without having to pedal once. Not shabby at all. Then again, if keeping the batteries topped off is your main priority, you can use pedal power at lower speeds or brake regeneration to recuperate charge. It's no electrified beach cruiser either. With an electrically controlled suspension system and seven inches of wheel travel, you can bomb across even the most rutted and washed out terrain at speed. The wheels? Those are made of carbon fiber. The rugged and stylish frame? That's formed from aerospace-grade aluminum. You've seen the new McLaren 570S, right? Perhaps a DRT would make a nice second vehicle.

But for that price you do get a quick-change battery pack, neat iPhone integration capabilities, and some hearty engineering. Trefecta designed the bike with military missions and personnel in mind. So while you might not have to haul supplies and gear on a peacekeeping mission, it's comforting to know that it can haul you and all your office supplies back and forth to work.
