The bulbous downtube of the iLYNX+ ENDURO 9.7 has become a signature trait of the Spanish brand. There's no deeper meaning behind it.
As a component giant, Shimano is mostly known for its dominant position in bicycle gears. But with the EP801, the Japanese are clearly showing that they can look beyond their own plate too. Even nasty steep sections are effortlessly climbed by the motor. The Shimano EP801 conveys a riding feeling. The short range unfortunately limits the tour radius quite significantly.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the iLYNX+ ENDURO 9.7 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (8000) .

Even nasty descents get smoothened by the good Fox chassis. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. The mid-range brakes from Shimano do their job but could be a bit firmer. The power of the four pistons setup is only average. The average shifting components and accessories leave some tuning potential open. For most e-bikers, this should be an acceptable point. The handling of the bike is pleasantly balanced due to the moderate geometry. This allows you to intuitively control the bike over the trails. Furthermore, the bike lies excellent on the trail thanks to its low bottom bracket and thus low centre of gravity. Short chainstays and and a slack seat angle make the front end light in steep climbs. To keep the front wheel on the ground, you need to consciously lean forward. It's no use beating around the bush: the geometry of BH doesn't suit our taste. Competitors are closer to the cutting edge here. Of course, a low bottom bracket also has its downside. In technical uphills, the pedal can sometimes touch the ground here. However, we think: This is manageable.

Conclusion


Expirience with the BH iLYNX+ ENDURO 9.7

The iLYNX+ ENDURO 9.7 isnt`t a specialist on the trail. Despite a weak range and a mediocre motor, it remains thanks to a good chassis a solid all-rounder with a wide range of use.
