It could be the color scheme or the design; we just can't decide. But the MXC 5 is an absolute visual feast.
Sram is aiming to elevate system integration in E-Bikes to a new level with its own Eagle Powertrain engine. For this, the Americans are technically relying on hardware from the German manufacturer Brose and mainly scoring points with innovative software that completely relieves the rider of the need to shift gears through its Autoshift function. If desired, the 12 gears of the Transmission drive can still be manually shifted. As is customary with Brose motors, the Eagle Powertrain motor operates very quietly. The power development is $dynamic and the 9 Nm torque takes the fear out of even the steepest inclines. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the MXC 5 with only an average range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the MXC 5 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (9000) .

The top notch DVO chassis absorbs big hits like Chuck Norris and provides a lot of traction and control. Thanks to the solid power, the SRAM brakes can be counted on in the upper class segment. With four pistons and big brake rotors, GASGAS won't take any chances in that area. The components and the gears are less in the spotlight with an EMTB than with bikes without motor. Nevertheless, when we take a look we find out that here, good components are always used. The reach - or rather the main frame - of the GASGASs is long. This puts the MXC 5 right on trend. The remaining values from the geometry table also orientate this bike according to the zeitgeist and leave a really thought-through impression.

Conclusion


Expirience with the GASGAS MXC 5

Overall, an extremely good geometry, a very good chassis and a good brake system speak a clear language. The MXC 5 is a good bike with mini-downhill DNA
