With its powerful TX, Flyer carried off the touring pedelecs test win with flying colours. The full-suspension frame is a true delight!
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 among the highest of all bikes on test, 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. No wonder then that alongside its test win, the Flyer was also awarded “Very Good” in three further product categories!
