I researched a whole lot before going for this bike, i have it in the latest modell, 2020 allmtn 10.0. It is everything i had hoped for and more. Don’t let the haters on YouTube and the net confuse you, this is a superbly high specced emtb with premium parts all round. i only upgraded the grips and the pedals, everything else is stock. I have had zero problems with the software everyone’s trying to fault, it just works!
What i love the most is the smooth riding XC, the confidence when trailing and consistent efficiency across all support levels.
The finishing is impeccable, from the SRAM XX1 Eagle to Matura MT7, you’ve got the best of everything ploughed into one comprehensive package. Yes, it’s on the heavier side, but that is because of the TQ motor (weighs in at 4kg, which is exactly what it weighs more than competitors using yamaha, bosch and brose motors), and it ultimately makes up for it five times over in unprecedented power delivery when you need it, entirely seamless. Also, you can switch off electric support and still have 12 gears to chose from, you‘ll never guess you’re riding an electric bike, i promise you. But don’t take my word for it, go and try one out yourself, the range is excellent.
I absolutely am in love with the bike and would buy it again. Just not in the near future, i have to recover from the recent purchase, which is the most i’ve ever spent on a bicycle or motorbike so far. Would i do it again? Absolutely YES! :)
And yes, it’s got me back out there in the wild open, more active that i’ve been in a long time, shedding lockdown pounds, heading for nature and fresh air, totally addicted!!!
