With its direct lineage from the E-Inception E-Fully MTB range, the E-Inception TR belongs to the increasingly popular species of versatile and comfortable SUV bikes; pedelecs with full everyday and touring specification that feel at home both on and off road.
It benefits from a number of technical features of the E-Inception mountain bikes. These include a sturdy yet lightweight aluminum frame with a suspended rear triangle and a high-performance suspension. Also included in the package: large wheels with 60 millimeter wide all-round SUV tires.
The MyBike editors are then also enthusiastic about the specification of the STEVENS crossover bike. "Rock Shox suspension, 29-inch tires, thru axles, XT rear derailleur, dropper post, and wide handlebars" are typical components of high-quality full suspension e-mountain bikes, according to the MyBike editors. Thus, of course, they also find their use on the E-Inception TR. In combination, they ensure "exceptionally high riding comfort" and a great deal of riding fun, according to the magazine's test riders.
Of course, the ride isn't limited to flat surfaces. The standard Schwalbe Johnny Watts all-round tires, specially developed for the off-road SUV bikes, "offer good grip even on loose surfaces without rolling unnecessarily rough on asphalt", according to the MyBike editors.
The combination of optimized frame geometry, practical suspension setup and capable tires then also ensures excellent handling. The MyBike test riders found: "The pedelec follows steering commands spontaneously and remains well controllable even on rough surfaces".
Bosch's powerful Performance Line CX drive with 85 Nm of torque provides reliable forward drive in all situations. It pushes the E-Inception with a lot of dynamics effortlessly even "over steep climbs". The complete integration of Bosch's "The smart system" ensures intelligent networking of rider and bike. In conjunction with the Bosch eBike Flow app, simple "over the air" software updates are possible. So is the individual adjustment of the riding modes or additional features such as route planning, navigation or activity tracking.
The coherent overall package of the STEVENS E-Inception TR 7.6.1 FEQ rewards the MyBike magazine with the excellent overall score of 1.6.
