    Summary

    Expirience with the Simplon Rapcon XTR 12

    Simplon Rapcon XTR 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 65 degree head tube angle and a reach that tends to be long you can certainly speak of a modern geometry. Anyone who has no special preferences for the seating position can´t go wrong with the Rapcon. Because the saddle takes the balanced approach. If you love crisp downhill runs, there are other All Mountain around under 8000 Euro that would suit you better. Simplon is installing only absolutely high-quality shifting components.
