Scott LUMEN 2023 Road test review Build quality
The Scott LUMEN 2023 has a very high cost, among the most expensive ebikes ever, but also a high build quality.
The value for money is in line with the main competitors in the sector and sometimes even better.
The overall build quality is very good and no particular criticisms can be made.
We would have expected a greater number of sizes, greater engine power and greater autonomy.
The weight of about 15.5Kg is indicative of a high general quality, which however you pay for.
It's not a bargain, but the value for money is better than other competitors.
Scott LUMEN 2023 Road Test Review Frame
The new frame has been completely revised, a perfect transposition of a muscular mtb to an e-mtb.
New geometries, new rear suspension, integrated battery, compact and silent motor.
The top on the market for a light e-mtb.
Too bad that for the cost we would have expected a greater availability of sizes and choice of colors.
Scott LUMEN 2023 Road Test Assemblies Review
The range of assemblies is the minimum that can be had, in any case complete, even if the prices remain always high.
The construction and assembly quality, in each version, is high, but also in terms of price.
It's not an e-mtb for everyone and the price of the top-of-the-range version seems frankly exaggerated, like its competitors.
It's a bicycle not a motorcycle!.
Scott LUMEN 2023 Road test Comfort review
Very valid, one of the best full e-mtb in this respect.
Then the rigid frame and integrated handlebar can make the Scott Lumen less comfortable than other competitors.
But overall the ride comfort is very good and it's really hard to complain.
Scott LUMEN 2023 Road Test Review Guide
The Scott Lumen 2023 is an e-mtb that wants to be a real link with a traditional mtb.
A light, comfortable, intuitive, safe, easy to ride e-mtb.
In the pedaled sections it is extremely easy to ride, it remains intuitive and safe, never demanding.
You learn to live with the thrust of the electric motor and with a minimum of apprenticeship you can be very fast, without absorbing too much energy from the batteries.
Uphill the good work of the rear suspension emerges, which is no longer a novelty.
On the contrary, with the help of the electric motor it is possible to better exploit the traction potential uphill and climb mountains with a certain ease.
What emerges even uphill is a great riding ease, a very intuitive and easy to ride e-mtb.
Downhill its character emerges even better, in fact it looks like a muscular MTB, with a high ease of driving, great handling and driving safety.
Even at high speeds it remains safe and easy to drive.
Like other MTBs Scott is a predictable, safe and easy to control e-MTB.
Obviously you need experience and riding ability, at least to reach very high speeds, but it's a competitive e-mtb downhill, on any type of track.
Excellent braking and really fine suspension.
Scott LUMEN 2023 Road test review Performance
The competitive weight, the excellent work done by the electric motor, the valid frame, the geometries and the excellent suspensions, lead to excellent performance, on any type of route.
An e-mtb that is successful against the other direct competitors and that on many occasions is even better than a muscle mtb.
Excellent downhill, it defends itself well in painura and goes very well uphill, where its low weight, geometry, suspension and electric motor allow for respectable ascents, both in terms of technical difficulties and short ascent time.
Of course, it's still an easy bike to ride, but you need riding skills if you increase the pace.
A great e-mtb, perfect for those who are undecided between e-mtb and muscle mtb.
Scott LUMEN 2023 Road test review Pros and cons
The Scott Lumen 2023 confirms itself as an excellent e-mtb, light with high performance and excellent general quality.
Its merits are its low weight, its general performance and driving qualities.
The defects are many: high price, reduced range, reduced engine power.
We should also add the few sizes available and the absence of a true color range.
Having said that in absolute terms it is one of the best e-mtb 2023.
