The SONIC EVO SX 2 is undoubtedly one of the slickest EMTB hardtails we've ever laid eyes on.
The SX from Bosch shows impressively that they shouldn't be limited to DIY and household products. The Swabians from Bosch are sending their first light engine into the race with the SX. With 55 Nm torque, this unit places exactly in the middle between Fazua's Ride 6 and TQ's HPR 5. However, it delivers up to 6 watts of support, similar performance figures to the popular Bosch CX. The starting behavior remains dynamic. The complete motor control is very $natural. In terms of installation space and sound, the small Bosch can't quite keep up with its competitors from the Light segment. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the SONIC EVO SX 2 , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the SONIC EVO SX 2 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (6000) .

Carbon is considered a premium material in the bike industry. In the price range about 65€, aluminium is usually the frame material used. With the carbon frame, Bulls can clearly differentiate itself from many competitors. Ideally, a suspension fork smooths out rough terrain and allows for controlled guidance even during fast descents. That's exactly what the outstanding Rock Shox fork on the SONIC EVO SX 2 does. At the brakes, Bulls instals upper class brakes with four pistons and large brake rotors from TRP. Those who live for premium quality will love the transmission and parts of this EMTB. Here Bulls cranks up the bling-bling factor to 11. The handling of the bike is pleasantly balanced due to the moderate geometry. This allows you to intuitively control the bike over the trails. Hell yeah, the geometry is killer! Here the know-how of the Bulls developers is videly visible. The weight of a bike is a key factor for the fun of riding. With 17 kg, the SONIC EVO SX 2 is one of the lightest Tourenbikes on the market. This turns the bike into a real joyride on the trail. An e-mountain bike is most fun when it can be ridden on a single track like a bike without a motor. The combination of good weight and very pleasant geometry give the SONIC EVO SX 2 the same natural and nimble handling as you know from non-motorised mountain bikes. Really only a few manufacturers manage to get this right.
