R Raymon HardRay E 1.0 Review

R Raymon relies on an attached battery for its most affordable e-mountain bike. Nevertheless, the HardRay E 1.0 does not look clunky.
At steep sections, the somewhat weak Yamaha motor requires a lot of initiative from the rider. The Yamaha PW-CE gives off a natural riding feeling. The short range unfortunately limits the tour radius quite significantly.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the HardRay E 1.0 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (2000) .

On rough terrain, the HardRay E 1.0, with its only average fork, lacks some control. Especially heavy riders should be aware that the Tektro only decelerates poorly. The drivetrain and components have a subordinate but not to be neglected importance when it comes to EMTB. Even the bike brand product managers know this and don't aim too high with mostly average components. If the Meta's chainstay length is less than 445, the short chainstay and, if the Reach's Relative Rating is less than 3, the relatively short reach characterise the R Raymon as a playful, agile bike. This makes it easy to navigate through winding trails. The deep bottom bracket also provides excellent cornering and thus contributes to the good handling.

Conclusion


Expirience with the R Raymon HardRay E 1.0

No doubt, the HardRay E 1.0 makes its older competitors look like old news. Nevertheless, as a solid climber it still has some aces up its sleeve to convince bikers who prefer to go uphill. Check the geometry table carefully before buying: The HardRay E 1.0 sizing runs small.
