Bulls Sonic EVO AM 2 Carbon Review

In the side view, the super delicate top tube and seat stay of the Sonic EVO AM 2 Carbon can only be seen as a thin line. This should appeal to design lovers in particular. Otherwise, the bike relies on the same values as all other Sonic models from Bulls. A four-link rear triangle with 130 mm of travel and the fork with 140 mm mm should level even medium-sized hits in the terrain.
The Performance Line CX Smart System from Bosch shows impressively that they shouldn't be limited to DIY and household products. The very well-rounded motor control and the dynamic power output characterise the character of the Bosch motor. The well-tuned riding modes cater to bikers of all preferences. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the Sonic EVO AM 2 Carbon with only an average range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Sonic EVO AM 2 Carbon in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (5000) .

In the about 5000€ price range, most manufacturers use aluminium as the frame material. With a carbon frame, Bulls turns the weight screw and sets itself apart from the competitors. In comparison, it's noticeable that the direct competition mounts better chassises, thus offering significantly more control. At the brakes, Bulls instals upper class brakes with four pistons and 2 millimeter rotors from TRP. The components and the shifting seem less important for Bulls. The components used here have a clear potential for improvement after a view at the competitors. 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 low bottom bracket height is a party pooper for the handling on the trail. On other bikes, you are more centrally located behind the handlebar.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Bulls Sonic EVO AM 2 Carbon

The Sonic EVO AM 2 Carbon is a great climber. With a fantastic motor and a good geometry, long tours in the even in alpine terrain are enjoyable. However, there is also a bitter pill to swallow with a simple groupset and a mediocre range.
