Sleek design meets masterful weight reduction. The Sonic EVO AM SL 3 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 EP801. Even nasty steep sections are effortlessly climbed by the motor. The Shimano EP801 conveys a riding feeling. 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 AM SL 3 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (7000) .

In the about 7000€ 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. The Rock Shox chassis provides safety and traction, even when the trail gets rougher. However, it comes to its limit at high speed. Bad brakes reduce the riding pleasure. Fortunately, this is not the case with the Sonic EVO AM SL 3. With their four pistons the Shimano brake brakes good. The average shifting components and accessories leave some tuning potential open. For most e-bikers, this should be an acceptable point. 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. The scale stays at 20,73 kg with this model. That makes the Sonic EVO AM SL 3 one of the light Trailbikes.

Value for money

Conclusion


Expirience with the Bulls Sonic EVO AM SL 3

For long tours, the Sonic EVO AM SL 3 with a very good handling, a very good range and a good brake system is well equipped. Only with an average motor and a mediocre chassis you have to look away.
