Among organic riders, Propain is well-known. In the realm of EMTBs, direct-to-consumer brands haven't quite achieved this stature yet. The Ekano AL Goldrush with the characteristic Propain rear suspension is set to change that.
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 EP801 engine. Even nasty steep sections are effortlessly climbed by the motor. The Shimano EP801 conveys a riding feeling. The average range can become a problem especially for long mountain bike rides.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Ekano AL Goldrush in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (9000) .

In the Downhill, the bike racks up plenty of points. The fantastic Fox chassis calmly and confidently handles rough terrain. Setup-Nerds can squeeze out the maximum performance from the chassis thanks to the many setting options. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. At the rear, the steel spring shock absorber provides maximum sensitivity. At the brakes, Propain instals upper class brakes with four pistons and 2 millimeter rotors from Magura. At the drive components and the remaining parts, Propain uses very good parts. When it comes to the geometry, Propain does not go completely crazy. The head tube angle and reach values were chosen with care. The result: A balanced riding behaviour with a good combination of playfulness and straight-line stability. Short chainstays and make the front end light in steep climbs. To keep the front wheel on the ground, you need to consciously lean forward. For the very good geometry, the developer team of Propain definitely deserves props. Such a knack for detail in geometry is rarely seen.
