Explore. That's what the E-Expl 700 S name urges you to do. Just how much adventurous spirit is packed into this EMTB full-sus with 140 mm remains the big question.
At steep sections, the somewhat weak Brose motor requires a lot of initiative from the rider. The Brose Drive T Alu gives off a natural riding feeling. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the E-Expl 700 S with only an average range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the E-Expl 700 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 rear, the steel spring shock absorber provides maximum sensitivity. In descending situations, the Tektro brakes require a lot of hand strength or, optionally, courage from the biker. With two pistons, they only brake 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. When it comes to the geometry, Rockrider 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. 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. With weight, the E-Expl 700 S is generally one of the heavier e-bikes on the market.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Rockrider E-Expl 700 S

No doubt, the E-Expl 700 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.
