BH X-TEP Lynx 5.5 Pro S Review – Demands you to take it to the nearest trail

Review of 2019 BH X-Tep Lynx 5.5 Electric Mountain Bike available in the UK exclusively via 50cycles. Shimano E8000 motor, integrated 720Wh battery pack and innovative geometry make for plenty of outstanding riding.

Review of the 2019 BH X-Tep Lynx 5.5 Pro S

More and more e-bike manufacturers are installing powerful batteries. And Spanish brand BH is no exception. Their new the X-TEP comes with a class-leading 720 Wh battery pack.

This All-Mountain charger, based on Shimano’s E-MTB engine Steps E8000 motor, breaks new ground, especially in terms of battery life. The battery pack, as with many current E-MTBs, is integrated inside the down tube.

However, it is not taken to the side or down, but pulled upwards. The long design and a new, more compact cell structure allow you to store enormous 720 Wh in the X-TEP. The standard for most e-bikes – notably Bosch-powered ones – is currently at 500 Wh.

The fact that BH has almost 50 per cent more battery power available reflects a current trend – as Specialized recently showed on the new Levo with 700 Wh battery. But, compared to the American brand, BH offers the largest battery in all models, not just the £8000+ models like Specialized.

The bike is very smart in other ways: using a wristband, you can open the electronic battery door (a key is also included).

2019 BH Evo City Pro: Powerful replacement for the Kalkhoff Pro Connect

BH Evo City Pro Electric Bike from 50cycles
BH Evo City Pro

We followed up our BH Evo Jet hill climb video with this tour of the excellent new BH Evo City Pro.

It’s similar to the Jet but with a larger battery capacity (meaning longer range) and it’s fully equipped for a touring and commuting role.

BH Evo City Pro – the new Kalkhoff Pro Connect?

This BH model caught our attention immediately. It’s very similar to our best-selling Kalkhoff Pro Connect model, which we offered 2008-2018, selling several thousand in the UK.

If anything though, the City Pro has even greater potential. It’s definitely more powerful and more elegant because (unlike the Kalkhoff Pro Connect) it tucks the 600Wh battery into the frame.

2019 BH Evo Jet E-Bike Hill Climb in Richmond Park, London

The first thing we do when a new e-bike arrives is take it for a test ride up a nice big hill. There’s no better way to get a sense of an electric bike’s potential than cycling straight for places other cyclists fear to pedal.

One such place is Broomfield Hill in Richmond Park, London. We’ve been testing bikes on this climb for years. Kalkhoff, Oxygen, Haibike, Focus e-bikes have all had their first UK outings there.

It’s a good spot because it’s popular with other cyclists (especially at weekends), it’s relatively free of motor traffic and it’s easy to film. About 50 yards further East there’s an off-road track that’s handy for test rides too.

We took the new BH Evo Jet on both of them last Sunday and were thrilled by the results. The BH Evo E-Bikes are the first we’ve had that pack a 48 volt motor and battery as standard. Continue reading “2019 BH Evo Jet E-Bike Hill Climb in Richmond Park, London”
