Ample suspension meets simplistic design. The ECA 3 aims to impress with performance rather than aesthetics. Does it succeed?
With torque under the motor cover, the support is generous. Nobody needs to fear steep hills anymore. Furthermore, the power of the motor control is regulated so that the start always feels dynamic,. Whoever enjoys longer tours will be pleased with the good range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the ECA 3 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (6000) .

Even on rough terrain, the ECA 3 doesn't lose its composure thanks to the excellent Fox chassis, giving you a lot of control. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. Especially for heavy riders, the GASGAS brakes could be a problem. With four pistons they only decelerate averagely. For an All Mountain , the Schwalbe tires with a width of #reifen_inch_breite inches are relatively narrow. In our opinion, GASGAS could have put on wider tires. A nice touch: The gear and components are on a very good level. The flat head tube angle and long wheelbase provide riding stability due to the 64° angle. 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.

Conclusion


Expirience with the GASGAS ECA 3

With an average brake system, the ECA 3 definitely has weaknesses. Nevertheless, it remains a solid all-rounder with a wide range of abilities , thanks to a very good chassis, a very good groupset and a good motor.
