…that’s the question the team from GRAN FONDO – Cycling Magazine asked themselves before they started spending some quality time on our all new REACTO.Their conclusion was rather simple – NO.
Another great review for our eONE-SIXTY family now on E-Mountainbike Magazine. After the impressive test on the top model, the eONE-SIXTY 900E (read the story here), the test crew looked at the next model down and walked away with the same conclusion.
This time, the guys from BikeRadar had a closer look at our top of the range BIG.NINE – the TEAM edition.
The crew of DIRT has included our award winning eONE-SIXTY in their DIRT 100 (hottest 100 mountain bike products of 2017) and graced this achievement with a fantastic video.
Our award winning e-enduro bike – the eONE-SIXTY 900E has managed to secure a further test win, this time in the 08/2017 issue of German mountain bike magazine powerhouse MOUNTAINBIKE.
Our CX 600 has been tested by the editorial crew of New Zealand Road Cycling Magazine and has been given some very positive feedback on its outstanding versatility, specification, outstanding looks and riding characteristics.
Our ONE-TWENTY XT-Edition was given the highly sought after ‘Test Winner’ accolade by German cycling magazine powerhouse MOUNTAINBIKE. The test crew had a look at our full aluminium trail bike in issue 05/2017 and gave it the big thumbs up.
German BIKE magazine looked at the latest race hard tails in the January 2017 issue and have crowned our BIG.NINE 9000 the ‘Best in Test’.
Our eONE-SIXTY 900E flagship continues its winning streak. After being awarded the Design & Innovation award (story here) as well as the TAIPEI CYCLE d&i award (story here) it has managed to grab a further two ‘top scores’ in the latest issue (#009 – 02/2017) of E-MOUNTAINBIKE.

Mountain bike website powerhouse Pinkbike have been taking our new BIG.TRAIL 900 out and have put it through its paces. And to cut a ‘long story short’ our new fun loaded hardtail went down a storm with the test crew.
In mountain biking Shimano has set the bar and been market leader with their SPD-pedals since the early 90’s. Others have attempted different materials, buckles, bearing solutions etc but it all comes down to a compromise between durability, functionality and weight. The current XTR (M9000) pedal weighs 310g.
While Shimano has full focus on reliable performance and durability, Crank Brothers have in my mind gone too far focusing on weight (Eggbeater 11: 174g). Their pedal is light but very clumsy to use and with brass cleats that wear very quickly. Their inner bearing is a needle bearing and has more resistance and lower durability than ball bearings.
