    Summary

    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 All Mountain of Simplon gives the rider lots of confidence in challenging terrain. The moderate seating position is likely to be the perfect middle ground for the majority of bikers. The high-quality frame meets all current standards and thus serves as a perfect foundation for a solid, complete bike. If you love flying down steep, rocky and loamy trails, the All Mountain of Simplon doesn't really suit you. Other manufacturers build All Mountain in the same price range that are more focused on descends.
