There are few German companies with a heritage as rich as Centurion. The No Pogo SL R8i proves that having a long history doesn't mean missing out on modern trends. Indeed, the new light EMTB from Magstadt is visually alluring, not shy to flaunt its attractions.
Bosch is the major motor manufacturer in the EMTB world, alongside Shimano - and it's no surprise, as the SX shows. 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 No Pogo SL R8i , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the No Pogo SL R8000i in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (10000) .

The very good chassis with 15 mm travel also proves to have a lot of resilience even on rougher terrain. Bad brakes reduce the riding pleasure. Fortunately, this is not the case with the No Pogo SL R8i. With their four pistons and 2 disc brakes the SRAM brake brakes good. At the drivetrain components and the rest of the parts, Centurion uses good equipment. When it comes to the geometry, Centurion 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 make the front end light in steep climbs. To keep the front wheel on the ground, you need to consciously lean forward. With its 18,5 kg, the No Pogo SL R8i is one of the lighter E-bikes. The competition is often significantly heavier.
