  1. The Mondraker Dune is back for 2024

    The Mondraker Dune is back for 2024

    Dune, that’s a cool name. And just like the movie, the Mondraker Dune is out in it’s second iteration. The first Mondraker Dune was an enduro pedalbike released in 2009. Mondraker already have a long travel emtb, the Level. But they brought back the old name for the lightweight, mid-assist...

    The Bosch PowerPack 800 has been out in various online stores for weeks, and now the official Bosch press release finally reached us. The new Bosch Powerpack 800 is the old Powerpack 725, only with new cells. Good news, you might say, especially if you ride a cargobike with external batteries...

    First ride on the superlight Superior iXF 9.7 - Bosch SX powered

    The lightweight Superior iXF was introduced a while ago, but it didn’t materialize. Not until now. We were lucky enough to ride a pre-production version of what will eventually be the iXF 9.7. Why were we so excited about this bike, you ask? It’s the motor. Bosch Performance SX 55 Nm motor...

    A new superlight Cube AMS Hybrid ONE44

    Finally, we're getting more bikes with the great Bosch Performance SX lightweight motor. Let me start with the name of the new bike. The entry-level version is looking very interesting, and it’s called the “Cube AMS Hybrid ONE44 C:68X SLX 400X 29”. Cube always had long and complicated names...

    What motor has the least over speed resistance?

    I've been riding a couple of bikes with the Bosch CX motor and once I get over 32km they feel like hitting a wall. I've briefly ridden the Giant (Trance & Reign 2023 models), Shimano EP6 and 8 (not EP801) motors and don't recall as much resistance over the speed assistance limit but then I...
  6. 2024 Canyon Strive:ON CFR review

    2024 Canyon Strive:ON CFR review

    There’s been much talk about the Canyon Strive:ON CFR that was launched in May this year. It ended up taking months for Canyon to ship a demo bike to Norway, so I was left wondering; what was so great about this bike? Watch the video or keep on reading below. So many Canyon emtbs Did Canyon...

    Thoughts on Commencal Meta Power SX Bosch

    Hi there. I haven't seen much on the Commencal Meta Power SX Bosch ebike. Was wondering if anyone has one or has tried one and has any thoughts on it? Thanks!
  8. 2023 Orbea Wild H10 review

    2023 Orbea Wild H10 review

    The Orbea Wild caught a lot of attention when it was updated for 2023, mainly because the top-of-the line model was a sub 21 kg bike. That’s very light for a full fat emtb. We’re not testing the most expensive carbon version though. We’re sort of testing the opposite model, the heavier Orbea...

    2024 Canyon Neuron:ON CF 9 review

    We've ridden mid-travel bikes before that were very similar to the more common 160mm travel bikes. Comparable weight, similar geometry, same wheels. And we've wondered; why? What's the upside of going mid-travel if you get the same bike, only less capable? Then there's the cheap mid-travel...

    Hi, i still have a problem with creaking crank arm?! Well my bike was creaking a lot and i have checked bolts on motor and they seem fine (even though i f*cked one small bolt).

  14. Bosch Performance SX first ride review

    Bosch Performance SX first ride review

    My first factory built emtb was a 2013 Cannondale Tramount 1. That was a hardtail with a Bosch Performance 60 Nm motor and a 400 Wh external battery. And now, 10 years later, it seems we’ve come full circle. The new 55 Nm Bosch Performance SX has about the same torque and battery capacity. But...

    95 Nm Panasonic GX Ultimate - comparing it to the Performance CX-R and EP8 (800)

    The Panasonic motor can only be found on one emtb brand, Flyer. At least that's the case where I live. We've been riding a Flyer Uproc X 8.70 for a few weeks now. This bike has the newly updated Panasonic GX Ultimate motor. Watch the video for a detailed review that illustrates the motor...

    Bosch Performance CX Race - Powerful and versatile

    The Bosch Performance CX Race isn't a completely new motor any more. But this is our first encounter with this much-talked-about motor. The CX Race is based on the Bosch Performance CX Gen4 motor, which was launched in 2019. The CX Race too delivers 85 Nm of torque, but it is a couple of hundred...

    2022/23 Mondraker Crafty Carbon - a short review

    Bosch delivered a prototype bike so we could finally test the Bosch Performance CX Race motor. Attached to that motor was a Mondraker Crafty Carbon. The specs don’t correspond to any of the 2023 models, so we’ll just call it the Crafty. Riding this bike reminded us of how much we enjoyed riding...

    Bigger chainring = higher top speed! Have you had any problems? Bosch Gen3

    He folks, Ok, So I have a Cube Acid One hybrid 2020. It has the 65nm gen 3 motor from bosch fitted. I am travelling mostly on country roads and I'm mostly in the higher 3 gears. At top speed like 28mph (thanks to road tyres being fitted), I feel as if I can go faster but I'm just spinning...
