Il Cicalino Season Opening Test.

BiXS and Wheeler Test Centre – Il Cicalino and MTBeer

MTBeer and Il Tenuto Il Cicalino will be starting their 2013 season with a bike test and trail area week from the 23rd until the 30th of march 2013.

With pro-team riders from the Cross Country and Marathon Teams from BiXS and WHEELER and Pro downhill World Cup racer Nick Beer on hand, it should be an interesting week.

We managed to try a few of the bikes at the end of 2012 and were impressed, especially with the light weight carbon models which were really great for long rides. We also got to play more with an E-Bike. This time it was a Bionx system, which we will be publishing a test about soon in the next weeks.

Test Station Video

Below is a list of the bikes on test which covers quite a broad range of product.


Cougar Trail (160-180mm)
29″ Sign (120mm)
Mariposa Chamois 120 (120mm; Ladybike)
Sauvage 140 (140mm)

Raptor LTD (180mm)
29″ Falcon Race Carbon (100mm)
Passera SL Carbon (140mm; Ladybike)
RAMP 14 Carbon (140mm)

Wheeler e-falcon with BionX 250.

The test products seem to be quite interesting with a 160mm enduro and 29er well represented. It will be good to try the 29er bikes back to back against the 26″ long travel bikes. Something which is highly recommended to do.
