It's beefy, it's long, it feels a bit raw. Actually, you'd almost need to throw a flannel shirt over the Sight VLT A1 to highlight its Canadian roots even more.

In the automotive and motorcycle world, Japan has always had a reputation for being a breeding ground for excellent engines. Shimano is doing its utmost to live up to this reputation in the e-bike world with the EP8 engine. The Shimano motor takes away the fear of even the steepest ramps. The combination of a well-rounded riding feeling and a gentle power delivery characterises the Shimano EP8. Whoever enjoys longer tours will be pleased with the good range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Sight VLT A1 720 Wh in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (7000) .

The highend Fox chassis absorbs big hits like Chuck Norris and provides a lot of traction and control. Especially for heavy riders, the Norco brakes could be a problem. With four pistons they only decelerate averagely. 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. If you like to turn up the gas on the singletrail, you will appreciate the smooth character. The low bottom bracket height is a party pooper for the handling on the trail. On other bikes, you are more centrally located behind the handlebar. Even when it gets really steep, the long chainstays will stick the front wheel to the ground.

Value for money
