The EMTB for mountain bikers. That's how the Canadians describe the Relay ALLOY NX. So, is it the ultimate ride for trail-hungry riders?
Even steep ramps are surprisingly easy to climb with the Fazua motor. With its boost function, which provides 450 watts of support for a short period of time, the Fazua Ride 60 reduces the gap between light and classic full-power motors. At the moment, hardly any other light motor offers such a good combination of natural support, dynamic power delivery and capability. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the Relay ALLOY NX , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Relay ALLOY NX in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (8000) .

A good chassis sits in rugged terrain and generates plenty of traction. That's exactly what the good Marzocchi chassis in the Relay ALLOY NX hits. Especially for heavy riders, the Transition brakes could be a problem. With four pistons they only decelerate averagely. The average shifting components and accessories leave some tuning potential open. For most e-bikers, this should be an acceptable point. 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 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. Due to the short chainstays , when climbing steep sections, it requires active weight shifting to prevent the front wheel from lifting. On the scale, the Relay ALLOY NX makes a good figure with 21,9 kg. Most All Mountains are significantly heavier.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Transition Relay ALLOY NX

Friends of gravity should jot down the Relay ALLOY NX. With a very good handling and a good chassis, the Transition is a real trail rocket even for really gnarly terrain. But a middle ground brake system are of course points of criticism that one should be aware of before purchasing.
