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.

Shimano motors remain at the top of the engine popularity alongside Bosch motors. No wonder, as evidenced by EP8. Also seemingly hopeless inclines the Shimano motor easily climbs up well Even though the EP8 doesn't reach the performance of a Bosch CX Motor at maximum output, for example.. The Shimano EP8 provides a natural riding experience with a harmonious power delivery. Thanks to the excellent range, you should no longer have any range problems.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Sight VLT A1 900 Wh in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (7000) .

The frame is simply top notch, keeping you in control even on rougher trails full of fast hard hits. 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 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 weight, the Sight VLT A1 is generally one of the heavier e-bikes on the market.
