Bulls SONIC EVO AM SL 1 Review

Sleek design meets masterful weight reduction. The SONIC EVO AM SL 1 is intentionally flirting with its allure to win over the committed riders.
Shimano motors remain at the top of the engine popularity alongside Bosch motors. No wonder, as evidenced by EP600. Even nasty steep sections are effortlessly climbed by the motor. The Shimano EP600 conveys a riding feeling. Thanks to the good range, longer tours with the SONIC EVO AM SL 1 are no problem.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the SONIC EVO AM SL 1 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (5000) .

Carbon is considered a premium material in the bike industry. In the price range about 5000€, aluminium is usually the frame material used. With the carbon frame, Bulls can clearly differentiate itself from many competitors. Especially on root-strewn trails, the low-quality chassis puts the rider in front of greater challenges than necessary. Especially for heavy riders, the Bulls brakes could be a problem. With four pistons they only decelerate averagely. 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 will likely be a sticking point for trail riders, as it negatively affects handling. 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.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Bulls SONIC EVO AM SL 1

The SONIC EVO AM SL 1 isnt`t a specialist on the trail. Despite a poor chassis and a weak groupset, it remains thanks to a good geometry and a Impressive range a solid all-rounder with a wide range of use.
