The Austrian company Simplon is known for its configurator, which can be used to customise the equipment. On the Rapcon PMax GX1 Eagle AXS, the shock sits far back and is partially hidden by the split seat tube. This makes for a tidy look.
The Performance Line CX from Bosch shows impressively that they shouldn't be limited to DIY and household products. With torque under the motor cover, the support is generous. Nobody needs to fear steep hills anymore. Furthermore, the power of the motor control is regulated so that the start always feels dynamic,. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the Rapcon PMax GX1 Eagle AXS , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Rapcon PMax GX1 Eagle AXS in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (8000) .

The golden shine Fox chassis can certainly be described as outstanding. With its absorption qualities, it can easily absorb rough shocks in descents and provide calm behind the handlebars. Setup-Nerds can squeeze out the maximum performance from the chassis thanks to the many setting options. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. Bad brakes reduce the riding pleasure. Fortunately, this is not the case with the Rapcon PMax GX1 Eagle AXS. With their four pistons and large brake rotors the SRAM brake brakes good. In the area of shifting and the overall parts, Simplon ist on the money. The superb accessories make sure people will notice this bike, no matter where you rock up with it. 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 low bottom bracket height will likely be a sticking point for trail riders, as it negatively affects handling. It's no use beating around the bush: the geometry of Simplon doesn't suit our taste. Competitors are closer to the cutting edge here.
