Expirience with the Simplon Rapcon GX1 Eagle

Simplon Rapcon GX1 Eagle Review Simplon isn´t known for gravity-orientated bikes, but with the Rapcon the Austrians prove that they have more engineering skills than pure lightweight construction. With the modular principle, you can freely choose components. The flat 65 degree head tube angle of the Simplon All Mountain oozes self-assurance, especially in challenging terrain. When sitting in the saddle, the posture is neither overly sporty, nor uber-comfortable. This should make the Simplon All Mountain suite the taste of most bikers. There are All Mountain in the price under 6000 Euro that have more potential downhill. But one should not underestimate that wheels are extremely important for the riding experience on the trail. Simplon knows this and installed higher quality than the competitors at the price of 5349 Euro .
