Front big, rear small. The wheel combo of the SONIC EVA TR 1 29 is currently trending. But does the concept also deliver riding joy, or is it merely about being hip?
Bosch is the major motor manufacturer in the EMTB world, alongside Shimano - and it's no surprise, as the Performance Line CX Smart System shows. With torque under the motor cover, the support is generous. Nobody needs to fear steep hills anymore. Furthermore, the power of the motor control is regulated so that the start always feels dynamic,. Whoever likes to go on long rides will be pleased with the very good range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the SONIC EVA TR 1 29 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (5000) .

The low-grade chassis transfers shocks relatively clearly to the biker. At the brakes, Bulls middle class four pistons brakes by Shimano are used. Shifting and components still leave room for improvement. Other providers dig deeper into their pockets for these assemblies. When it comes to the geometry, Bulls 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. The bottom bracket is high, which costs handling points. This tends to make the rider stand on the bike. On other EMTBs it feels better integrated. 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. 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.
