The nicest thing about touring pedelecs is that you always can chose whether the electric motor or your own legs will do most of the work. That’s how My Bike describes their fascination with touring pedelecs. Ideally rider and bike are working together like one well-oiled machine. And everything is perfect when a long bike tour does not feel like work at all. So My Bike’s editorial department selected a few special test criteria.
“It could not have worked-out better on this very hard, very hot day”, the Danish-born Luxembourgian national summed-up the race after crossing the finish line. A distance of 79 kilometers (49 miles) and 2,300 meters (7546 feet) of elevation were scheduled for a field of riders that included the full world elite.
A classic, race-like frame geometry and an agile handling – attributes of many of STEVENS road bikes and that, of course, can be said about the new Izoard Pro Disc, too, says RennRad in its 6.2019 edition. Yet, this new all-rounder with hydraulic disc brakes focusses primarily on comfort and long-distance capabilities.
“One of the most capable bikes for short and long-distance rides“, is My Bike magazine’s conclusion after a thorough review of the STEVENS 8X Lite Tour. The top-of-the-line model is exemplary for sporty, every-day capable bikes from the City Cross line, that was developed by STEVENS from the minimalistic X-cross line for city, gravel and forest roads. The 8X Lite Tour is also an example of what kind of ride experience modern bicycle technology, when usefully combines with top-shelf components, can create.
