Hardtails might not have a vast following in the EMTB scene, yet KTM aims to score a hit with the Macina Race SX 20. However, boasting merely 100 mm of front travel, serious off-road excursions are off the table.
The Performance Line CX Smart System from Bosch shows impressively that they shouldn't be limited to DIY and household products. 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. The well-tuned driving modes hit the mark. The short range unfortunately limits the tour radius quite significantly.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Macina Race SX 20 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (3000) .

Carbon is considered a premium material in the bike industry. In the price range about 3500€, aluminium is usually the frame material used. With the carbon frame, KTM can clearly differentiate itself from many competitors. As the bumps get bigger and rougher the average SR Suntour fork limits the downhill fun. At the brakes, KTM reaches for the bottom of the Shimano shelf and instals simple brakes with two pistons. The average shifting components and accessories leave some tuning potential open. For most e-bikers, this should be an acceptable point. On winding trails, the playful handling comes to the fore, as the bike masters even the fastest direction changes with the short wheelbase playfully. With the weight of 20,2 kg, KTM puts the competition in a state of shock. Indeed, among Tourenbikes, it is hard to find a lighter model. The riding pleasure is guaranteed.

Conclusion


Expirience with the KTM Macina Race SX 20

Altogether, an excellent motor make the Macina Race SX 20 a very good bike for friends of the uphill flow. It is destined for tours on paved paths and gentle trails. With a weak range and a middle ground groupset, Macina Race SX 20 has a sore spot too. Be careful when choosing the size: The Carbon frame sizing runs small.
