The VUCA EVO AM 2 steps into a pioneering role with its #marke_motor motor, aiming to revolutionize the EMTB market with its extravagant design and sans derailleurs. But will it succeed?
Pinion challenges the decades-old concept of chain shifting and combines its MGU with a gearbox unit. In doing so, the Swabians put their finger on the sore spot of chain shifts. After all, the enclosed gearbox is not only significantly lower in maintenance, but also more resistant to wear and tear and defects. Shifting between the 12 gears is done either automatically or via the electronic shift lever. And with a range of 6%, the system surpasses traditional chain shifts in this respect as well. With 85 Nm, the engine can compete with Bosch or Shimano's flagships, although the motor control is $natural. The maximum support of 41% is in a typical range for full-power motors. Whoever enjoys longer tours will be pleased with the good range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the VUCA EVO AM 2 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (8000) .

In the Downhill, the bike racks up plenty of points. The excellent Fox chassis calmly and confidently handles rough terrain. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. Whoever wants to ride fast, needs good brakes. The Shimano brakes are equipped with four pistons and large brake rotors. That way, the premium brakes decelerate more than adequately. At the drive components and the remaining parts, Bulls uses very good parts. 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.
