Stromer has set a new benchmark with the ST2 S: perfect ride performance, integrated design and top-end...
...specification make this the well-deserved test winner for business pedelecs. It also achieved a ‘Good’ test verdict in the Tour and Easy product groups.
It takes a second glance to truly appreciate the sophisticated geometry of the FLYER TX, and how the matte metallic paint suits the discreet understatement of this strong all-rounder. The TX's assistance is immediately on hand, and the power assist figures are above average. So even if on tour with heavy luggage there's no need to worry if the gradient increases. The range, too, is absolutely fine for touring. And because you'll ride in real comfort on the TX thanks to the classy frame suspension, there's nothing to interrupt the riding pleasure even on longer rides. The single fly in the ointment: the rather high bottom bracket makes it tricky to adjust saddle height - if the distance to the pedals is correct, then you cannot easily get your feet to the ground.
Otherwise there's nothing to niggle about on the TX: high quality brakes and transmission ensure the best possible ride, and the rest of the specification is top class too.
