Everyone is after lightweight EMTBs. The Austrians at KTM have taken this customer desire by the scruff and tuned the Macina Scarp SX Exonic with a smaller motor for full-on weight reduction.
The Performance Line CX Smart System from Bosch shows impressively that they shouldn't be limited to DIY and household products. The Bosch motor takes away the fear of even the steepest ramps. The combination of a very natural riding feeling and a progressive power delivery characterises the Bosch Performance Line CX Smart System. The well-tuned driving modes hit the mark. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the Macina Scarp SX Exonic , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Macina Scarp SX Exonic in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (11000) .

A good chassis sits in rugged terrain and generates plenty of traction. That's exactly what the good Fox chassis in the Macina Scarp SX Exonic hits. Bad brakes reduce the riding pleasure. Fortunately, this is not the case with the Macina Scarp SX Exonic. With their four pistons the Shimano brake brakes good. The narrow #reifen_inch_breite Schwalbe tires do not do this Trailbikes range of use any justice. In our opinion, KTM has saved weight in the wrong place here. At the drive components and the remaining parts, KTM uses very good parts. The moderate head tube angle provides a good compromise between stability and agility when going downhill. The reach is also right there in the middle ground. 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. With the weight of 16,5 kg, KTM puts the competition in a state of shock. Indeed, among Trailbikes, it is hard to find a lighter model. The riding pleasure is guaranteed. Especially going downhill, the good geometry of the Macina Scarp SX Exonic really shines.

Conclusion


Expirience with the KTM Macina Scarp SX Exonic

Overall, the Macina Scarp SX Exonic is, due to a fantastic motor, an extremely good handling and a very good groupset is a good all-rounder for trips on challenging trails. Only a weak range slightly tarnish the otherwise successful overall picture.
