The integrated seatpost and the absolutely independent lines make the R.X735 CORE stand out from the crowd of E-MTBs.
As a component giant, Shimano is mostly known for its dominant position in bicycle gears. But with the EP8, the Japanese are clearly showing that they can look beyond their own plate too. The Shimano motor climbs steep ramps effortlessly. The natural riding feeling combines the Shimano EP8 with a harmonious power delivery. Whoever enjoys longer tours will be pleased with the good range. The battery is firmly integrated into the frame and can not be easily removed.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the R.X735 CORE in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (8000) .

The good Fox chassis absorbs even larger roots with the calmness of a Buddhist monk. The mid-range brakes from Magura do their job but could be a bit firmer. The power of the four pistons setup is only average. At the drivetrain components and the rest of the parts, Rotwild uses good equipment. The moderate head tube angle provides a good compromise between stability and agility when going downhill. The reach is also right there in the middle ground. 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. Short chainstays and and a slack seat angle make the front end light in steep climbs. To keep the front wheel on the ground, you need to consciously lean forward.
