The Rockrider Explore series encompasses numerous models. However, the E-EXPL 500 S 29" 500 Wh grau/metallic is the sole full-suspension rig boasting 130 mm of travel on the fork available at the sporting goods retailer Decathlon.
At steep sections, the somewhat weak Brose motor requires a lot of initiative from the biker. The Brose Drive C Alu gives off a well-rounded riding feeling. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the E-EXPL 500 S 29" 500 Wh grau/metallic , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the E-EXPL 500 S 29" 500 Wh grau/metallic in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (2000) .

The chassis unfortunately isn't great. Riders might lack comfort on rough terrain. Especially heavy riders should be aware that the Tektro only decelerates poorly. The components and the shifting seem less important for Rockrider. The components used here have a clear potential for improvement after a view at the competitors. The handling of the bike is pleasantly balanced due to the moderate geometry. This allows you to intuitively control the bike over the trails. 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. The view of the weight of 26,2 kg reveals: There are lighter Einsteiger-Bikes.
