Already last year no bike has been seen more often in hobby races as the STEVENS Super Prestige, the aktiv Radfahren editors say. With its weight reduced to 1,000 grams in size 58cm, increased lateral stiffness and improved comfort thanks to more vertical compliance it has obviously become very popular. The fact that three cyclocross world champions – Wout van Aert, Sanne Cant, and Ben Tulett (U19) – also ride Stevens’ top cross model is even more proof of its qualities.
Aktiv Radfahren extensively rode the STEVENS Super Prestige in Neon Green spec’d with mechanical Shimano Ultegra. The “green frog’s” frame combined classic cyclocross attributes like an elevated bottom bracket shell with modern features such as thru-axles, Flatmount disc brakes and a pressfit bottom bracket. Shimano’s Ultegra drivetrain shifts and brakes very precisely. Just as you expect from that group. The wheels from DT Swiss’ cyclocross line are dialled-in for utmost off-road fun.”
When riding gearing, tires and the comfortable handlebar made the bike easy to steer and to handle. “The Super Prestige is a pleasure especially on rough terrain and impervious to roots and coarse rubble.” So the testers often made detours over more technical trails where the Super Prestige willingly obeyed.
Conclusion: Exciting to look at, a technology treat, and a cornering genius – the Super Prestige has everything to make off-road cycling fun.
