"Explosive accelerations, desire for predatory driving performance and riding properties among industry leaders": RIZER RIVAL 3.0 review by MBAction, Czech Republic

12.04.2016


The MountainBikeAction, one of the leading MTB magazines in Czech Republic, has shown a big interest to test our starting race model RIZER RIVAL 3.0. A deep and sound test was performed by MBAction test rider Jakub Svoboda, test results were published in the MBAction April 2016 issue. Here below is a short summary of this Review.

“RIZER RIVAL offers a quality frame, a modern geometry and riding properties fully comparable with the leaders in the category. As the teaser of the new 2017 collection, RIZER RIVAL 3.0 appears better than good”.
“Sport-minded cyclists who are looking for an affordable and at the same time a quality race bike will be completely satisfied. Frame, equipment, geometry and 27.5” inch wheels: all this is clearly expressing the desire for predatory driving performance.”

“RIZER easily accelerates and what's more, it maintains the speed very well. A key role is played by the fierce riding position, which involves the rider into the game and encourages pedaling. We also mention the aluminum frame which has surprised us by its stiffness, and we find deserving to highly appraise the selected dimension of the wheels; they all are the source of the RIZER explosive accelerations”.
“The ride is really under control, the rear tire has a great grip while the front one is following the path even in the technical and difficult terrains.”

“Apart from being fast, RIZER has also great handling and maneuverability due to the well thought geometry and 27.5” wheel size”. “We must also emphasize the relaxed head angle, which is not very often seen on bikes in this category. This results in better control in descents and gives the rider much more confidence when passing through technical areas”.

“The frame is the most attractive and interesting part of the bike. The frame building has been focused on the high strength on the one hand and lowest weight possible on the other. This task has been managed very well, at least at our opinion”. “We also must highlight the quality and originality of the overall frame treatment. In front of the frame the tubes have strictly trapezoidal shapes, while at the back they get round or oval shape. It is worth to mention the interesting chain stay, providing enough space for wider tires”. The tapered Headtube and Direct post mount were noted as well.

The high level equipment has got a good appraisal too, including Rock Shox XC32 Air fork, Avid brakes, high efficiency Continental Race King tires and Deore/XT transmission.
