Shimano Steps ebike Reviews
BAV "…very happy with it. Engine works great…Works great for technical stuff, especially the torque based power in trail mode. Boost is great for really steep climbs. I can recommend it definitely!"
MTBR.com editor rides a 6by6 and
raves: "...Frame angles are dialed...Held up in big descents...Great value..." Rating: 4 Flamin' Chili Peppers-out-of-5
"...we’re happy to report that the bike checked out just fine…suspension is active vertically and stiff laterally…responsive…held up in the big descents without complaint….angles were just right at 67.5 and 73.5 respectively. For all-around trail riding, it definitely did the job. And at that price you’ll likely have money left over for upgrades.
Frame is stout and laterally stiff, Frame angles are dialed, wheels are strong…attractive lines on it with a top tube bend for improved clearance. Tubes are oversized and welds are beefy.
Component choices are smart…great value bike on the new 27.5 wheel size….best deals and components to deliver a solid package…models shipping now have an updated rear shock called the Monarch R rear shock with Fast Black 7075 shaft and Rapid Recovery rebound damping…this rear shock has excellent, supple performance and has very good mid-stroke damping support.
Bottom line it’s an attractive and affordable package that leaves plenty of budget for down-the-road upgrades.
…exciting sibling model announced…Team Version with RockShox Pike RCT3 forks, and XTR / XT 1x11 Speed, Guide Brakes…is ridiculous value and it will be an awesome performer.
Magazine says the Fantom Team carves the trails and has
"components normally found on bikes costing thousands more..."
Rag Magazine editor rides the Fantom Team in several 24 HOUR Races and
addition to The Wilderness 101, I completed the Wild 100
(kilometers) and a 96 mile Duo Class 24-hour race on the Fantom Team.
The biggest compliment I can give the bike is to say that I didn't have
to think much about it during those events. ...The Fantom Team's
handling is well mannered and intuitive. Carving through tight
singletrack is a breeze...the bike loves to go downhill fast. During
the aforementioned 24-hour race, there is a long, fast downhill where I
routinely blew by hardtail racers like they were standing still. When
my quarry wasn't eager to yield the A line, I went for the gusto and
passed on the B line, relying on the Fantom Team's suspension to gobble
up the rocks and ruts..."CLICK HERE FOR WHOLE REVIEW
Real Customer Reviews of Motobecane HAL Series Full Suspension Mountain Bikes AFT / MTBR.com "Just put 11 miles on the new bike! This thing is amazing!! Can't get enough of these shocks, that and the rear derailleur shifts so damn quick. Love it!"
Daniel E. MTBR.com "Wow this bike is incredible…this is the best and probably most expensive bike I've ever ridden, but I couldn't have even imagined a bike feeling this great on a trail. Not sure on the weight, but it feels very light and quick (I'm tubeless, which may help) while still being stiff. The travel is a lot, but I was able to use what looked like 80-90% on my ride today while still feeling efficient on the flats and climbs, noting that I was playing around with the rear lockout…Everything about this bike is great, looks amazing, hell even the saddle is very comfortable.
JR Glenni MTBR.com "…my Hal6 Expert climbs great. Down shifting is firm and quick even when shifting late or downshifting more mid climb, and I didn't really notice pedal bob on the climbs. The front did tend to lift up on me more than I was used to, but I'm coming from a hard tail 29'er that was more of an XC design with a longer wheelbase, so that's not surprising. I was still able to climb pretty quickly with it, and I don't think the light(er) front end will be an issue as I get more used to it."
Jeff R MTBR.com "I am also coming from a hardtail 29er, but feel that my hal6 climbs just as good if not better on technical climbs. I'm not fighting for my back wheel to maintain traction and it soaks up the roots, rocks, and bumps… On Saturday, broke my strava record for a technical climb I do regularly on my hal6 without even trying…All in all, I'm very impressed with the overall performance of the bike…"
HAL Series Motobecane Compared to Specialized Stumpjumper Elite FSR
P / MTBR.com "...short little review after ~5 miles of techy singletrack with around 1,000ft of climb.
First off, I'm coming from a 2013 Stumpjumper Elite FSR 29er and have the Hal6 PRO for comparison.
Obviously, the suspension on the moto is a HUGE upgrade. My first time riding a Pike and I must say, I'm sold. I was actually pedaling thru a lot of the rougher sections instead of trying to pick a perfect line. Also found it much easier to throw the bike around and clear a lot of the super tech stuff. Definitely a noticeable difference in geometry as well. I felt like I was in a much better position when I was pointed downhill. One of my biggest gripes with the Stumpy was pedal clearance. You basically can't pedal thru a turn on the Stumpy without striking a pedal. Didn't have a single strike on the Moto today…All in all, couldn't be happier with how everything performed on my first ride. ...feels fantastic on the downhill/tech sections.
HAL Series Motobecane Compared to Specialized Stumpjumper FSR
CC H. MTBR.com "I did another really technical climb on my hal 6 pro...I made it way further than I ever have on any other bike. Its narrow, rocky, rooted, and steep and even I was amazed at what I made it through. Part of the advantage of this bike is the high pedal clearance. I could also feel the back just sticking down, never spun out once even when leaning forward. I attribute that to the suspension, and the nice tires. The feeling of the bike under me is light and stiff. I assume the hal5 will climb better than the hal 6 because of a steeper head angle, and less travel front and rear. I will be doing a direct comparison with my friends stumpjumper FSR comp. the frame angles and measurements are almost identical on paper except for the seat tube on the Hal being steeper by 1.5 degrees…"

Super Versatile: Turbo Full Suspension 29er eBikes
With the HAL e29 series, you've
got an incredibly capable full suspension mountain bike that'll do just about anything for
Thousands less than any other bike.
What is Boost: The HAL e29 is a Boost spacing mountain bike. Boost is a new dropout standard designed to widen the hubs on the previous standard MTB spacing wheels. The rear axle is wider by 6mm to 148mm and the front axle by 10mm to 110mm.
Wider flanges = wider bracing angle for spokes = a stronger and stiffer wheel. Allows the use of 29er wheels with higher strength and stiffness for top performance. Also, More tire clearance, ability to use 27PLUS tires and with shorter chainstays for superior handling and climbing.
Equipped with 29er Tire/Wheels
Hang with virtually anything on the trail. Super efficient and super fast. Conquer the trail. The HAL e29 is a turbo-traction, climb and descend just about anything on the trail mountain ebike. Some says it's a Boost XC Rocket!
WARNING - Due to extremely High Demand we expect to sell out of these very soon
