Review Riva Bikefestival 2019

This years worlds largest MTB Test Event, the one and only Riva Bikefestival, took place from the 3rd til the 5th of May 2019. As usual we represented our current MTB and E-MTB Range including all the amazing highlights like the Revolution iLink and the E-Power RS 150.

The event was embossed by our two higlights the all new Revolution iLink and the E-Power RS 150, which was the most common tested bikes during the Festival.

Especially the Revolution iLink SL Pro Team and Pro with 120mm suspension travel suited very well for the difficult and slippery conditions on the trails due to several rainy weather lags. Furthermore our two team riders the current german champion Simon Gegenheimer rode the all new Revolution iLink SL Factory at the Bike Marathon on Saturday and emphasized the outstanding functionality of the unique Inside Link technology. Especially the demanding conditions both up- and downhill, strenghtend the advantages of the Inside Link Rear Angle and contributed to overwhelming traction that has turned out as a huge benefit in comparison to all other competitors.

The other test higlight was the current winner of the World Of MTB E-MTB Test Tour/Allmountain, the E-Power RS 150 Factory. With the outstanding Shadow Edge Tube Technology the down tube is extremely stiff, light and integrates the 500 Wh Bosch battery shapely in an outstanding way. Furthermore the geometry suits very well for long tours with demanding up- and downhills. Combined with high quality components and 150mm travel the bike is a real eyecatcher on each trail.

On Saturday we had a Meet and Greet with the two team riders of the UCI Mountainbike Racingteam, Simon Gegenheimer and Marion Fromberger. They talked with visitors and friends about the life as a pro cyclist, the current mtb trends, the all new Revolution iLink and much more. In the evening we came together to the usual riders party at our corratec Testcenter THE LAB in Riva including beer and meat.

The last day of the event, Sunday, was very rainy and cold with even some snow at the mountains. Nevertheless some riders were brave and took part at the Revolution iLink Testride with the german champion in the eliminator Simon Gegenheimer.

To put it in a nutshell the worlds largest MTB Test event was a blast and we are already looking forward to the next year.
