KTM Macina Action 291
The KTM Macina Action 291 is a no nonsense, high performance 29″” hardtail eMTB with an enviable pedigree.
It’s the 29er brother of the popular Macina Action 271 with the added benefit of a larger wheel for even greater ground-breaking performance on tough terrain.
A high torque and punchy Bosch Performance CX drives the Action 291. It comes with a 500Wh battery as standard for immense range. It features a semi-integrated motor unit and battery for sleek lines and great looks. This further enhances the already hugely appealing look of this bike. The ride is smooth, reliable and exhilarating, every time. The combination of Bosch’s CX and 500Wh battery ensures a hugeky powerful performance with extensive range to match. A nice pair of Suntour XCM 34 suspension Boost forks ensure the perfect balance of absorption and responsiveness. Strong, yet light the Suntour’s absorb the nuances of gritty trails and unforgiving surfaces with absolute ease.
Gutsy yet agile
A Shimano Deore M6000 GS shadow plus 10-speed derailleur and shifters ensure that this little beast means business! Its full range of 10 gears set across an 11-42T cassette are more than enough, and cope with everything put in its path. No climb or descent is too challenging. There’s no compromise on brakes either. Shimano MT200 hydraulic discs on 180mm rotors clip the Action 291’s wings when required. Agile and relatively lightweight, the Action is very much at home on or offroad. Furthermore, this little gem only weighs in at 22.14kg. Smart Sam tyres are both rugged enough for loose terrain, yet provide great all-round performance on a multitude of surfaces too.
All metrics on the KTM Macina Action 291 are easy to read on the Purion display. It’s neatly mounted out of harms way to the left of the handlebars. There are four levels of power assistance, and can be varied by the rider from 40% up to 225% easily, from a thumb control mounted on the handlebar. there’s also a handy walk assist feature too.
The Macina Action 291 from KTM is a great performer with good equipment and worthy of a place in any stable.
