The bold lines of the iLYNX+ TRAIL PRO 8.9 reflect the signature style of BH designers. The Spaniards love to set new visual trends in the market, and the iLYNX+ TRAIL PRO 8.9 is no exception.
Shimano has become the biggest component manufacturer for bicycles thanks to its gear, pedal and brake components. It's clear that the Japanese want to shape the E-Bike trend from this dominant market position. Even nasty steep sections are effortlessly climbed by the motor. The Shimano EP801 conveys a riding feeling. Whoever enjoys longer tours will be pleased with the good range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the iLYNX+ TRAIL PRO 8.9 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (10000) .

The deluxe Fox chassis absorbs big hits like Chuck Norris and provides a lot of traction and control. Whoever wants to ride fast, needs good brakes. The Shimano brakes are equipped with four pistons and large brake rotors. That way, the premium brakes decelerate more than adequately. At the drivetrain components and the rest of the parts, BH leaves almost no wishes open and only uses top-notch parts. When it comes to the geometry, BH does not go completely crazy. The head tube angle and reach values were chosen with care. The result: A balanced riding behaviour with a good combination of playfulness and straight-line stability. Furthermore, the bike lies excellent on the trail thanks to its low bottom bracket and thus low centre of gravity. Oh boy, with the geometry you have to be ready to make compromises from our perspective. The most important measurements and angles fall slightly out of the grid of good bikes. We love deep bottom brackets, as long as it's going downhill. Uphill you need to be aware that the crank can sometimes hit the ground.

Conclusion


Expirience with the BH iLYNX+ TRAIL PRO 8.9

With an outstanding groupset and a good range the iLYNX+ TRAIL PRO 8.9 counts among the better climbers on the market. This emphasizes its fun factor on tours even in alpine terrain. Nevertheless, an average motor also give cause for criticism. We have to stay honest.
