What we like
- Rounder that is suitable for almost every application
- efficient: no other Bosch Bike came as far as the EQ-Trekking
- neat look and high ground clearance cranked engine
What we do not like
- the saddle is only for athletes, the handles are a bit uncomfortable
- Noise by whirring motor and rattling parts
A true all-rounder presentswith the EQ-trekking. The high-quality wheel feels both in the drive to the supermarket and sporting enthusiasts well. But his strength makes it out on extended trips. Not for nothing is Maximilian Semsch at its 18,000-kilometer trip through Australia on the bike.
In the test the EQ Trekking impresses with its balanced handling in combination with the convincing Bosch drive . It provides the operator an efficient and powerful boost aid, also the EQ shows the range test as conditional strong. The engine installed Haibike turned under. So actingless bulky and has more ground clearance.
In terms of comfort, the bike with his hard are saddle , the taut suspension fork and the slightly stretched riding position more athletic. In addition, should the handles – especially on long distance – better in the hand. Over time many expected the noise from the engine and from the fender and the front light to be too much.
