With the Explore series, Rockrider aims to prove that Decathlon also offers bikes with an attractive aesthetic. And the E-EXPL 520 S clearly succeeds in this endeavor.
At steep sections, the somewhat weak Brose motor requires a lot of initiative from the biker. The Brose Drive T Alu gives off a natural riding feeling. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the E-EXPL 520 S , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the E-EXPL 520 S in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (3000) .

The chassis unfortunately isn't great. Riders might lack comfort on rough terrain. At the brakes, Rockrider reaches for the bottom of the Tektro shelf and instals weak brakes with two pistons. At the drivetrain components and the rest of the parts, Rockrider uses average parts. 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 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.

Value for money

Conclusion


Expirience with the Rockrider E-EXPL 520 S

No doubt, the E-EXPL 520 S 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.
