The E-Inception AM 9.7.2 GTF comes across without much of a fuss. Sleek lines and the classic, four-hinged rear end leave an understated impression.
Shimano motors remain at the top of the engine popularity alongside Bosch motors. No wonder, as evidenced by EP8. The Shimano motor takes away the fear of even the steepest ramps. The combination of a natural riding feeling and a harmonious power delivery characterises the Shimano EP8. Thanks to the good range, longer tours with the E-Inception AM 9.7.2 GTF are no problem.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the E-Inception AM 9.7.2 GTF in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (8000) .

On rough descents, the moderate chassis limits you and demands a more precise line choice than bikes with better chassis. The mid-range brakes from Magura do their job but could be a bit firmer. The power of the four pistons in front and two pistons in the rear setup is only average. The drivetrain and components have a subordinate but not to be neglected importance when it comes to EMTB. Even the bike brand product managers know this and don't aim too high with mostly average components. 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. Due to the short chainstays , when climbing steep sections, it requires active weight shifting to prevent the front wheel from lifting. The scale stays at 22,4 kg with this model. That makes the E-Inception AM 9.7.2 GTF one of the light All Mountains.
