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 Price2Ride 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. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the Ekano AL Price2Ride with only an average range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Ekano AL Price2Ride in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (6000) .

The Rock Shox chassis provides safety and traction, even when the trail gets rougher. However, it comes to its limit at high speed. 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. Especially for heavy riders, the Propain brakes could be a problem. With four pistons they only decelerate averagely. For an Enduro , the Schwalbe tires with a width of #reifen_inch_breite inches are relatively narrow. In our opinion, Propain could have put on wider tires. At the drivetrain components and the rest of the parts, Propain uses average 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. Hell yeah, the geometry is killer! Here the remarkable know-how of the Propain developers is videly visible.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Propain Ekano AL Price2Ride

The developers of Propain have created a solid all-rounder with the Ekano AL Price2Ride. Even though the E-Mountainbike reveals a weak flank with a mediocre motor and a middle ground chassis, it remains thanks to an excellent geometry:Genetiv a widely applicable vehicle. Praise-worthy: 5 years of Warranty on the Frame!
