E-mountain bike hardtails with their own look are rare, but the Backfire Fit R800i is one of them.
Bosch is the major motor manufacturer in the EMTB world, alongside Shimano - and it's no surprise, as the Performance Line CX shows. No matter how steep or technical the climb is: the Bosch motor makes it conquerable! At the same time, the drive provides a very well-rounded feeling while riding with a dynamic power delivery. This great combination mixed with lots of power, is something only a few other motors at Bosch's level can achieve. Thanks to the good range, longer tours with the Backfire Fit R800i are no problem.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Backfire Fit R800i in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (4000) .

In rough terrain, the Backfire Fit R800i lacks a bit of control with its only average fork. 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. At the drivetrain components and the rest of the parts, Centurion uses average parts. 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, Centurion creates a good weight distribution between the wheels and a balanced handling.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Centurion Backfire Fit R800i

Overall, the Backfire Fit R800i is, due to a good motor, a good geometry and a great range is a good all-rounder for trips on forest roads and easy single trails. Only a middle ground fork and an average brake system slightly tarnish the otherwise successful overall picture. The warranty of 5 years proves that Centurion has a lot of trust in its products.
