The design of the e.drenalin.2 GTS 500 XT 1x12 is inconspicuous, elegant and almost a classic.
As a component giant, Shimano is mostly known for its dominant position in bicycle gears. But with the EP8, the Japanese are clearly showing that they can look beyond their own plate too. 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 e.drenalin.2 GTS 500 XT 1x12 , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the e.drenalin.2 GTS 500 XT 1x12 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (8000) .

Especially on root-strewn trails, the low-quality chassis puts the rider in front of greater challenges than necessary. At the brakes, Storck middle class two pistons brakes by Magura are used. Wide tires provide more grip and comfort. Storck tends to fit narrow tires with its #reifen_inch_breite Storck tires. For an All Mountain, we would prefer wider treads. The components and the shifting seem less important for Storck. The components used here have a clear potential for improvement after a view at the competitors. When it comes to the geometry, Storck does not go completely crazy. The head tube angle and reach values were chosen with care. The result: A balanced riding behaviour with a good combination of playfulness and straight-line stability. The bottom bracket is high, which costs handling points. This tends to make the rider stand on the bike. On other EMTBs it feels better integrated. Overall, the geometry does not seem to be up to date anymore. The competition is significantly more modern in this regard. On the scale, the e.drenalin.2 GTS 500 XT 1x12 makes a good figure with 20,5 kg. Most All Mountains are significantly heavier.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Storck e.drenalin.2 GTS 500 XT 1×12

If you want to experience the much-vaunted uphill flow, the e.drenalin.2 GTS 500 XT 1x12 is a hot candidate for you.
