Even though the Steamer Pmax Deore-12 looks more impressive, it only has 150 mm of travel at the fork. This clearly puts it in the touring category.
The Performance Line CX from Bosch shows impressively that they shouldn't be limited to DIY and household products. The very well-rounded motor control and the progressive power output characterise the character of the Bosch motor. Achieving such a perfect balance between natural support and power is something few other engines can do. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the Steamer Pmax Deore-12 , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Steamer Pmax Deore-12 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (6000) .

The very good chassis with 150 mm travel also proves to have a lot of resilience even on rougher terrain. 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 Steamer Pmax Deore-12. With their four pistons and large brake rotors the SRAM brake brakes good. A nice touch: The gear and components are on a very good level. In view of the high reach value, it becomes clear: The main frame is long. However, the generous reach is compensated for by a very short stem. This way, Simplon creates a good weight distribution between the wheels and a balanced handling.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Simplon Steamer Pmax Deore-12

With a very good groupset and a good motor the Steamer Pmax Deore-12 counts among the better climbers on the market. This emphasizes its fun factor on tours on challenging trails. Nevertheless, a poor range also give cause for criticism. We have to stay honest.
