Bulls SONIC EVO AM 3 ABS 29/27,5 Review

Edgy, futuristic, good? The SONIC EVO AM 3 ABS 29/27,5 certainly divides opinion with its distinctive looks.
The Performance Line CX Smart System from Bosch shows impressively that they shouldn't be limited to DIY and household products. The very natural 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 3 ABS 29/27,5 with only an average range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the SONIC EVO AM 3 ABS 29/27,5 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (6000) .

The frame on entry-level was stingy with control. Thanks to the solid power, the TRP brakes can be counted on in the upper class segment. With four pistons and big brake rotors, Bulls won't take any chances in that area. 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. 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. 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. 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. Overall, the geometry does not seem to be up to date anymore. The competition is significantly more modern in this regard.
