Triumph launches the 2018 XCX Mountain Bike
Triumph Motorcycles never fails to surprise us whenever there is a new launch and this time it was an all-new hardtail mountain bike. No, it is not a motorcycle, and it’s not even an e-bike. But is all powered by proteins, fats, and carbohydrates.
Why are they making one? Maybe they just got bored of churning winning combinations of modern-retro motorcycles under their Bonneville banner and thought of having a new challenge to conquer.
In the always - or maybe somewhat - exciting world of bicycles, there have been a lot of steady improvements made throughout the years that have dramatically changed our perception of this type of transportations. E-bikes, in particular, have dominated the scene recently so it’s no surprise that I’m here to talk about a new entrant into the market that’s made by engineers who are promising to revolutionize how people perceive bicycles.
The bike is called the European Trefecta and according to the people behind its development, this bad boy is the bicycle of the future. Without drowning in the sea of hyperbole and aggrandized rhetoric, I did find myself somewhat intrigued about the Trefecta. It’s hard not to when phrases like “aerospace engineering” and “hybrid propulsion” are being thrown out to describe the inner workings of this e-bike.
The people behind it - a mixture of Dutch, German and Swiss engineers - claim that the Trefecta fully justifies all the claims being made on its behalf. Certainly, the $28,000 price tag given to the Trifecta makes you wonder how in the world did the creators of the Trefecta get to that number.
