Take challenges with ease
Challenging downhills; steep climbing passages and fat jumps - if you like it rough, the SONIC EVO EN-SL 1 is just right for you. Equipped with an extremely lightweight carbon frame, the new Shimano EP8 drivetrain and RockShox suspension with 160/150mm travel, you'll get more out of trail rides and tours. At the same time, the SONIC frame concept offers a whole range of sensible innovations such as the enlarged 1.8-inch head tube with precision bearings and specially produced fork standard. The result is more steering stability and greater control on descents. The proven frame geometry with flat steering angle and extended reach also contributes to this. Maximum climbing qualities are ensured by the particularly powerful Shimano EP8 drive unit with 85 Newton metres of torque, which is also quiet and smooth-running and draws its energy from the semi-integrated battery unit with carbon housing. Together with the other components such as the 12-speed shifting of the brand new Shimano XT Di2 groupset with FREE SHIFT, the four-piston brake system and the snappy Schwalbe tyre combo, the result is a sporty unit that offers maximum performance for tough enduro rides.
