Expirience with the Simplon Rapcon XT 12

Simplon Rapcon XT 12 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. With a flat 65 degree head tube angle and a long reach, the geometry corresponds to the current trend. In the saddle of the in alpine terrain your bum will have a pleasant ride – and your back too.
