E-mountain bike hardtails made of carbon are almost non-existent. The Sengo PMax XT-12 occupies a niche with its high-quality approach.
Bosch is the major motor manufacturer in the EMTB world, alongside Shimano - and it's no surprise, as the Performance Line CX shows. The very well-rounded motor control and the dynamic power output characterise the character of the Bosch motor. The well-tuned riding modes cater to bikers of all preferences. The average range can become a problem especially for long mountain bike rides.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Sengo PMax XT-12 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (6000) .

Carbon is considered a premium material in the bike industry. In the price range about 6500€, aluminium is usually the frame material used. With the carbon frame, Simplon can clearly differentiate itself from many competitors. The good SR Suntour fork dampens small and medium bumps confidently when mountain biking. The mid-range brakes from SRAM 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, Simplon 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.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Simplon Sengo PMax XT-12

The Sengo PMax XT-12 is a real multitool for tours on forest paths and easy trails. Although there is still room for improvement at a middle ground brake system and an average range. Nevertheless, with a good motor, a good fork and a good groupset make it a capable Tourenbikes from Simplon with a very wide range of use.
