At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the SONIC EVO TR 1 29 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (5000) .

If the trail gets rougher however, the comparatively weak chassis can quickly limit the downhill fun. The mid-range brakes from Shimano do their job but could be a bit firmer. The power of the four pistons setup is only average. Shifting and components still leave room for improvement. Other providers dig deeper into their pockets for these assemblies. In view of the high reach value, it becomes clear: The main frame is long. However, the generous reach is compensated for by a very short stem. This way, Bulls creates a good weight distribution between the wheels and a balanced handling.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Bulls SONIC EVO TR 1 29

Overall, the SONIC EVO TR 1 29 is, due to a top-notch motor, a fantastic geometry and an amazing range is a good all-rounder for long trips on forest roads and easy single trails. Only a poor chassis and a simple groupset slightly tarnish the otherwise successful overall picture.
