The highly equipped Escape is ideal for city and tour – also thanks to the powerful engine. However, the high center of gravity makes for a pretty cant liges ride.

What we like

  • large, clear display and intuitive operation
  • but good responsive engine, from 20 km / h is missing some power
  • compared to front and middle engines rather quieter drive

What we do not like

  • No suspension fork, characterized in gruff underground little comfort
  • the high center of gravity leads to a quite nervous driving behavior

Let’s get out! Nominally this sounds Giant Escape for a veritable smugglers. Does it help but, the stress really to escape through a bike ride? It helps. But too hastily the fugitive should not have it. Because of the Giant’s proprietary rear-wheel drive while talking on reliable but acts from Tempo 20 bit weak on the chest.

On steering commands the superbly equipped reacts wheel very directly. It acts – also because of the high center of gravity and laterally placed batteries – a bit nervous. Comfort friends would have a forkforward. Top hand: the convincing cycling computer .
