Even though the Steamer Pmax XT-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. 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 Steamer Pmax XT-12 , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Steamer Pmax XT-12 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (7000) .

The high-quality Fox chassis also takes away the fear of rough root sections. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. At the brakes, Simplon instals upper class brakes with four pistons and large brake rotors from SRAM. The shifting and the rest of the components are always in the shadow of the engine when it comes to electric mountain bikes. Nevertheless, Simplon doesn't skimp here and instals very good components. 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 XT-12

If you want to experience the much-vaunted uphill flow, the Steamer Pmax XT-12 is a hot candidate for you. Overall, the Steamer Pmax XT-12 due to a very good groupset and a good motor is a good climber for tours on challenging trails. But with a weak range there are also criticisms that come with the overall package.
