Bulls SONIC EVO 29 Review

The SONIC EVO 29 is the highest quality hardtail in the model range of the Cologne-based Bulls brand. The design of the frame looks futuristic thanks to the angular lines and thus creates the perfect transition between the cheaper hardtails and the higher quality fullys.
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. The Bosch motor climbs steep ramps effortlessly. The very natural riding feeling combines the Bosch Performance Line CX Smart System with a dynamic power delivery. The well-tuned driving modes hit the mark. 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 EVO 29 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (4000) .

As the bumps get bigger and rougher the average Bulls fork limits the downhill fun. Especially for heavy riders, the Bulls brakes could be a problem. With four pistons they only decelerate averagely. The drivetrain and components have a subordinate but not to be neglected importance when it comes to EMTB. Even the bike brand product managers know this and don't aim too high with mostly average components. The moderate head tube angle provides a good compromise between stability and agility when going downhill. The reach is also right there in the middle ground. For the good geometry, the developer team of Bulls definitely deserves props. Such a knack for detail in geometry is rarely seen.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Bulls SONIC EVO 29

This SONIC EVO 29 could be your perfect partner if you love long tours on forest paths and easy trails. Because as an extremely good all-rounder with a top-notch motor, a very good geometry and a very strong range it masters every situation you throw at it. But it's not without criticism. With an average fork and a middle ground brake system you have to turn a blind eye.
