In addition to the cornering behavior, the testers also praised the bike's high possible payload. The permissible total weight is 130 kilograms and therefore offers plenty of room for a lot of luggage. "The stiff, triple-butted aluminum frame easily coped with the heavy luggage on the test route," said the test editors. This was accommodated on the luggage rack mounted for the test.
In general, the torsionally stiff backbone of the Supreme Pro finds much approval among the RADtouren test riders. "You can easily challenge the Stevens and ride it loaded out of saddle until the wind whistles. It will not wobble or swing at all."
It does not necessarily always have to go straight ahead. The test editors certify the Supreme Pro a nimble handling in corners, "steering movements are transferred directly to the road or trail". The bike "demands speed" and "wants to be guided", acknowledges a faster pace with "lots of driving fun", according to RADtouren magazine.
Whether fast changes of direction, tight or wide curves, the testers attest the City Cross Bike a driving behavior that is always easy to control in tight as well as wide curves. This is thanks to the steering-stable S-Lite aluminum fork.
The frame geometry borrowed from the STEVENS cyclocross bikes ensures a sporty riding position with handlebars well below saddle level. "This fits the strong, sporty character," is the assessment of the test editors. So that the comfort does not suffer with all sportiness, 40 millimeter wide Schwalbe G-One Allround tires are mounted. These "do not have to be driven super inflated, providing shock absorption.
The Supreme Pro also offers a valuable specification around the gravel-specific Shimano GRX group. RADtouren: "Front derailleur and rear derailleur are taken from the top GRX810 series." In combination with the high-quality frame, the result is a "maneuverable but good-natured fun machine that also copes well with a carrier and luggage," according to RADtouren magazine, which concludes by awarding the bike a good score of 1.9.
