Trefecta – Mark Blundell

A positive review of the Trefecta DRT from Mark Blundell, former F1 driver and winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Someone who experienced technology and performance at the highest level. That means a lot!

For more than three decades Mark Blundell has honed his expertise in the upper echelons of elite global sport, firstly in a professional sporting career, then TV pundit and in more recent years, as a successful businessman.

Mark enjoyed a distinguished career at the very top of the sport. 61 starts in Formula One brought multiple podium finishes whilst racing for the likes of McLaren, Brabham, Ligier and Tyrrell across a golden era for the sport. Alongside his Formula One duties, Mark enjoyed immense sportscar success most notably taking a memorable pole position at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1990 before taking the outright victory in 1992.

​Mark Blundell also became one of the very first British drivers to enjoy a great deal of success in the United States, taking on the very best that IndyCar had to offer enjoying multiple wins along the way.

Stepping away from elite racing, Mark was a part of ITV’s BAFTA-award winning Formula One coverage from 2003 to 2008 and has established himself as one of Europe’s most recognised motorsport managers through his role as CEO of market-leading sports management group, MB Partners.

Trefecta starring in Westworld

Are You A True Fan Of Westworld? So are we! We are very proud that our Trefecta’s play a role in the highly urbanized future world and are looking forward to all the episodes of this season.

Westworld is an American science fiction Western television series created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. Produced by HBO, it is based on the 1973 film of the same name (written and directed by Michael Crichton) and, to a lesser extent, the film’s 1976 sequel Futureworld. The story takes place in Westworld, a fictional, technologically advanced Wild-West-themed amusement park populated by android “hosts”. The park caters to high-paying “guests” who may indulge their wildest fantasies within the park without fear of retaliation from the hosts, who are prevented by their programming from harming humans.

The third season takes place immediately after events of the second season, with Dolores having escaped Westworld along with the cores of a few hosts, including Bernard’s. Taking residence in neo-Los Angeles in 2058, Dolores develops a relationship with Caleb, and comes to learn how artificial beings and lower-class humans are treated in the real world. Meanwhile, Maeve finds herself in another part of the Delos park, one based on Fascist Italy during World War II.

For Westworlds fans we have a special offer, click here to read more.

Trefecta, the ideal eMTB for hunting

Are you looking for an easier way to get to your blind or tree stand? Or check your trail cams and animal tracks? Or get to your hard to reach sweet spot? Trefecta offers the best solution our bikes are made to fit the needs of hunters in all terrain types.

An eBike built specifically for hunting can make a big difference to the success of your trip. And a lot safer, with the Trefecta you can still travel even without pedaling, for example in case of an injury, just use the throttle to get you home safe. The advantages of using an electric hunting bike are more than just riding uphill easier.

Originally developed with the specific demands of professional military users in mind, bringing the special forces scouts to their posts close to enemy lines quickly and as stealthy as possible without overly exerting the rider, as such the Trefecta DRT might be the ideal addition to your hunting gear.

The advantages

eBike’s are much faster than walking in and out of your hunting area. With a Trefecta there’s no need to strap everything to your back and go back to your campsite or car. With a cargo rack on the front and or back as well as with the optional trailer, you can throw your gear on your bike and get going, giving you ample time to pursue your favorite pastime.

On your Trefecta you are very much more stealthy and nearly undetectable compared to an ATV. Animals’ work of their senses and loud noises and smells will scare off game. The electric motor doesn’t sound as loud or make the amount of vibration as gas engines do, not mentioning the smell of exhaust gas it produces. So you’re looking at a better chance of getting your kill faster and more efficiently with an e-bike.

Is the Trefecta DRT just an eMTB?

No it’s not just an eMTB with a rugged design and camouflage print. The Trefecta is powerful enough for carrying up to 353 lb (160 kg) of rider, gear and hopefully your prey, providing enough torque to get you motoring up a 45 percent incline, and offering a 31,000-mile (50,000-km) lifespan. The bike can also fold down into an available transport case, another military stipulation.

Designed to ensure that the powerful eBike holds up under extreme conditions is possible, due to the use of high-end, durable materials like 7075 aerospace grade aluminum. The frame also protects the internal cables and components. For the wheels we capitalize on the weight and strength advantages of carbon fiber, using a six-spoke, 26-in design.

In terms of its electric drive, the Trefecta DRT packs a 4-kW motor, a 14-speed Rohlof Speedhub and a SmeshGear transmission. At low speeds, motor output is managed by a pedelec system aimed at maintaining an ideal blend of pedal assistance and battery usage. You won’t necessarily want to be pedaling when going for the top speed of 43.5 mph (70 km/h), so there’s also a right-handlebar throttle for cranking up motor power alone. The motor can send up to 184 lb-ft (250 Nm) of torque to the rear wheel.

Although in the world of hunting bikes speed is not an absolute imperative as most of the time you will ride the bike on rough off-road terrains that won’t allow you to safely reach the higher speed, it’s always good to have enough power to quickly close the distance between you and your prey.

You are able to control ride mode and other settings by using the buttons at the handlebars for example selecting automatic gear shifting or electronic gear selection and to control the settings of both the suspension fork and the rear shock.

The Trefecta is powered by a 60-volt lithium-ion battery-pack stored inside a lockable compartment in the upper front the frame. Providing enough power for up to 62 miles (100 km) of range without any pedaling. The battery charges in about three hours when plugged in, and a regenerative braking system adds some charging on the move.

Other DRT components include a big upside-down fork with up to 180 mm (7 in) of travel, a dropper seat post with up to 125 mm (4.9 in) of travel, Ergon grips and saddle, Schwalbe mountain bike tires and Hope disc brakes. The rear shock offers up to 200 mm (7.8 in) of travel.

A powerful alternative, the Trefecta RDR

Looking for a more affordable version of our flagship the DRT? The Trefecta RDR also has been designed to have the capability of tackling almost any terrain thanks to sophisticated suspension, a powerful motor with an unusually large battery and the ability to carry heavy loads. But rather than the insane 4Kw powertrain fitted to the DRT, the new bike uses a 920w mid-drive motor. Whichever power output you choose there is still a 120Nm of torque available. The frame is made of high-pressure injection-molded aluminum with a welded aluminum TQ 120s rear powertrain with Gates CarbonDrive and a step less Enviolo IGH.

Hunting and the Trefecta eMTB’s: a perfect match

Whether you are following a trail, silently want to check hunting cameras on the trail and access areas farther than you’d walk to, you need something to help you to quickly traverse rough and difficult terrain. With the Trefecta you get all this coupled with a powerful motor, incredible range, and the ability to haul your kill back to your truck. An offer no serious hunter can say no to.

Trefecta delivers battery packs to Porsche Formula E-Team

Trefecta is proud that it has been selected by the Porsche Formula E-Team to deliver four battery packs. The Porsche Formula E-Team was looking for a solution for the batteries that drive the fan engines that, during the pit stop, cool the brakes of the 99X Electric.

Porsche came to Trefecta because we developed the only batteries on the market that deliver the desired power and that are CE-UN certified and therefore, for example, also can be transported by airplane.

The connection with Porsche dates back to the early days in which we collaborated with a number of Porsche engineers for the development of the first Trefecta. So Porsche knew that the quality Trefecta delivers meets the highest standards in the industry.

Trefecta wishes the Porsche Formula E-Team every success with their first season in the Formula E!

Trefecta RDR – Indiegogo

The Trefecta RDR – Go anywhere, do anything

The Trefecta RDR is the ideal eBike to take on a challenging off-road trail and yet with the road kit installed the RDR is the fast and relaxed solution for your every day inter-urban commutes. The Trefecta RDR offers you best value based on Performance, Range and Design without compromising on the values the Trefecta brand is known for since 2012: offering you the ultimate riding experience with the freedom to go where you want, when you want.

Trefecta’s aim is to create the game, instead of changing it. By focusing on true innovation we create the norm and set the standard for the products of tomorrow. We are very proud to introduce the new Trefecta RDR speed pedelec, a more affordable version of our famous Trefecta DRT Pro race pedelec. The bike has been designed to tackle almost any terrain and to transport you in style thanks to sophisticated suspension and styling, a powerful motor with unusually long range (due to a large battery).

The Trefecta RDR represents the culmination of 7 years work to develop and produce an eBike powerful and durable enough for international military peacekeeping and professional use. The goal is to lock-in and secure the final investment needed to bring the core technologies developed to the consumer market in serial production.

The range of special perks on offer is highlighted by the Trefecta RDR ABS RK (10 units available at this special offer first come first served price) offering extraordinary value for money.

Unmatched Performance

The new Trefecta RDR uses either a 250w, 500w or 920w mid-drive motor from German brand TQ. Whichever power output you choose there’s a stunning 120Nm of torque available. That’s more than twice what most mid-drive motors will provide.

Unmatched Design

We have chosen to finish the Trefecta RDR’s in natural aluminium, the upper frame untreated while the powertrain is finished in matt black. Aluminium is a durable and fully recyclable material that forms its own protection through natural oxidation, thus giving a wonderful patina through life. A nod to classic racing motorcycles of yesteryear that had aluminium fuel tanks, thereby building a fun yet sustainable bridge between our past and our future mobility requirements.

Unmatched Pleasure

The greatest value that the RDR offers is pleasure! The pleasure of driving, discovering, getting further than you ever were, building better health or arriving relaxed at work in an environmentally friendly way without traffic jams. The Trefecta RDR already offers you the mobility solution of the 21st century at the lowest cost per kilometer. That is unmatched pleasure combined with an attractive value proposition.

The Trefecta RDR ABS RK comes equipped as follows:

  • Trefecta upper frame and powertrain in high grade aluminium with adjustable trail angle.
