We’ve had the BH Atom-X Lynx 6 Pro in for testing. We have to credit the Spanish brand with at least one thing – they have created their own design language and are steering towards a distinctive look for their future E-Bikes. The important question though – how does the 160mm travel BH Atom-X Lynx 6 Pro ride? We find out.

On Test: BH Atom-X Lynx 6 Pro

Size does matter (for batteries at least)

Tastes and preferences vary, but there’s no doubt that BH-Bikes have put together a very individual looking bike here. With such a bold design the engineers must be convinced of its merits. At a glance, the BH Atom-X Lynx 6 Pro looks tall and oddly proportioned. The bulky downtube is angled steeply, and meets the top tube almost in the middle. A panel on top, almost like the fuel tank on a motorbike, opens electronically to reveal the huge 700Wh battery below. The novel features don’t end here. The seat tube is asymmetrical and the rear suspension design features a mudguard and sag-indicator – that’s something we’ve missed on other E-Bikes in the past.

There’s no experimentation with the spec though. A stalwart and solid selection of Shimano XT drivetrain, SLX brakes, Brose motor, Fox suspension, Kind Shock dropper post, wide bars, Ergon grips and a great display should leave you wanting for nothing for your eMTB trail expeditions.

The price will be € 5.499,90 € | Bikemarkt: BH Atom-X Lynx 6 Pro kaufen

Motor & Battery

The BH Atom-X Lynx 6 is powered by a Brose Drive-S
# The BH Atom-X Lynx 6 is powered by a Brose Drive-S - which is mounted vertically and protected by an aluminium skidplate

Consistent and smooth in its power delivery

How do you best describe the Brose Drive-S motor? Consistent. Natural. Quiet. That’s what we would say about the Brose Drive-S that powers the BH Atom-X Lynx 6 Pro. It feels very natural in use and delivers power consistently, never surging forward unexpectedly. That’s in contrast to some E-Bikes we’ve tested that almost start to feel like motorbikes. If you’ve used other motor systems then you’ll also appreciate how quiet the Brose models are – the sweet sound of silence. The power is more than adequate, but if you’re used to more oomph from other E-Bikes might seem a little lacking initially.

We particularly like the 700 Wh battery that’s fitted on the BH Atom-X Lynx 6 Pro. Riding frugally and in the right conditions (wind, tyre pressure, route profile etc.) it should be possible to eke out just under 100 km range. The battery was developed by BH-Bikes and in contrast to its huge capacity actually has a relatively small packaged volume, beating the likes of Shimano or Bosch. However if you want a spare battery it’s not going to be cheap, setting you back a cool € 949.

What a display we have here! The diminutive computer, with its 256 MB RAM, lets you adapt the assistance modes and characteristics to your tastes. We’re a little sceptical about the exposed mounting position but the display is brilliantly clear and bright. It’s easy to read all the essential information you need during your ride. The different assistance modes – Eco 30% (green), Eco+ 50% (blue), Sport 70% (orange) and Boost 100% (red) – are identified with their respective colour and the mode selection is confirmed by the vibrating control unit. This is a system we can get behind! If you use the Ebikemotion app you can connect your smartphone to the display via Bluetooth. That means you can navigate with the display and get message notifications via the vibrating remote.

Real-world Range

Reichweitentest BH Atom-X
# Reichweitentest BH Atom-X

48 km / 1.075 metres vertical ascent
1 h 55 min

Quoted figures for range tend to be on the optimistic side so we like to test bikes for ourselves, draining a whole battery and seeing how far the bike will go. For this test we managed 48 km and 1.075 metres of ascending, staying in the highest power setting throughout. Please note that these values in no way represent rigorous or normalised testing, instead they should be seen as ballpark figures. Using lower assistance modes increases the range significantly too.

Here are the exact details of our test ride.

On the Trail

Uphill

No problems going uphill on the BH Atom-X Lynx 6
# No problems going uphill on the BH Atom-X Lynx 6

The BH Atom-X Lynx 6 Pro is a veritable mountain goat

The Atom-X Lynx 6 Pro rides well uphill but there are some compromises inherent to the high centre of gravity. The 465 mm chainstays along with the plus tyres provide lots of traction at the rear. Steep inclines are easily dispatched, though you’ll need to move your weight quite far forwards to keep the front weighted. The smooth support from the vertically fitted Brose Drive-S lets you ride through tricky sections with ease. The positioning and length of the battery make this eMTB responsive to riding inputs and changes in position, making it easy to pop the front wheel over any obstacles. If you’re shocked by the length of the 465mm chainstays you needn’t worry. The weight distribution and position on the E-Bike even makes tight corners a pleasure.

Downhill

Carving through corners is a lot of fun on this E-Bike
# Carving through corners is a lot of fun on this E-Bike

A little lacking in stopping power

The capable suspension comprises Fox 36 forks and a Fox Float DPS shock. With 160mm travel front and rear the rear suspension provides good sensitivity with a progressive spring rate. The eMTB sits high in its travel and ploughs through bumpy sections with ease. Thanks to the long chainstays and the central centre of gravity, the weight distribution is very good and the bike feels like it’s on rails when riding. The integrated chain guide keeps the chain secure through all terrain.

Our main problem was the Shimano SLX brakes that had some difficulties slowing down this 24 kg E-Bike on long and sustained downhills. We’d prefer something with a bit more stopping power that experiences less fade.

Trail

The suspension provides very neutral handling on the trail, and the motor adds the oomph to accelerate quickly
# The suspension provides very neutral handling on the trail, and the motor adds the oomph to accelerate quickly

Flowing along the trails – that’s what we like

When we’re cruising along the trails the Atom-X Lynx 6 Pro feels completely at home. The 780mm wide bars make direction changes easy despite its heft, and the Schwalbe plus tyres soak up small mistakes or questionable line choices. However at higher speeds the tyres become a bit of a handful. The soft sidewalls have a tendency to squirm and make the steering feel a little vague.

We rather like that the display can be connected via Bluetooth to your smartphone. If you’ve installed the Ebikemotion app you can send turn by turn direction to the display as you ride. Now it’s almost impossible to get lost.

We also really like the “smart” assistance mode selector that provides tactile feedback by vibrating to confirm a change in the assistance mode.

We’re not quite so fond of the dropper post. The Kind Shock ETEN-I extends too slowly and only offers 100mm travel. That might work for a E-City- or E-Trekkingbike but not an E-Mountainbike.

Careful! There's little room for error with the tyres ... once they start sliding you loose all grip
# Careful! There's little room for error with the tyres ... once they start sliding you loose all grip

We noticed

  • Exposed Display – as much as we like the display, we’re a little sceptical of its positioning. The out-front mount makes it too susceptible to crash damage. Why wasn’t it just placed on the stem? It would be just as easy to read, without being so exposed.
  • Plus-Tyres – the lack of precision impacts on your feeling of control when things start to get a bit faster. Whilst the tyres have oodles of grip, the compromise isn’t worth it. Narrower 2.6” tyres would complement the capable suspension a little better
  • Dropper post travel – 100mm travel on a dropper just isn’t enough. We’d like to see around 150mm.
  • Shimano SLX brakes – at this price point we would expect to see some more capable stoppers. Whilst the SLX brakes have adequate bite, the power fades quite quickly on sustained descents.

eMTB-News Summary: BH Atom-X Lynx 6 Pro

BH-Bikes have created a comfortable and capable E-Trailbike that uses its smooth motor , large 700Wh battery, capable suspension, brilliant display and well-handling geometry to good effect. At 67° the head angle isn’t too slack and the 445mm reach for a size L results in a central position on the bike. The Atom-X isn’t suited to fast and rough enduro courses but that’s not what it’s designed for. This E-bike is aimed at those who want a playful and comfortable E-Mountainbike with plush suspension for trail riding.
With 160mm travel, long chainstays and the Brose Drive-S motor, anyone who rides this bike will get up the steepest slopes. It’s a great eMTB that lets itself down with a few questionable component choices.
However, being able to pair the display with your smartphone via Bluetooth is genuinely useful.
If you’re looking for performance along with distinct, stand-out looks then you wouldn’t go far wrong taking a closer look at the BH Atom-X Lynx 6 Pro.

About the test

Please expand for details

On our test runs we usually stay in the highest assistance mode and drain the battery completely at least once. We then publish our results on our Strava-Account.

Our loop has everything we need to test what our E-bikes are capable of:

  • Tight uphill trails with roots, rocks and loam
  • Flat trails with small climbing sections
  • Fast and flowing downhills
  • Long gravel trails up- and downhill

E-bikes are subjected to our route multiple times to allow us to draw our conclusions.

We tested the BH Atom-X Lynx 6 Pro here

  • On the tails in Malaga, Spain and in Bamberg, Germany. The riding provides narrow and tight trails with technical rooty, rocky sections, steep and technical uphills as well as flowing downhills. In Spain the trails were very dry and dusty.

    I bought an Atom X lynx 5 in May. I am writing this message to complain about the complete inefficiency of BH's after-sales service. To date 7 September I will be able to make at most a fortnight of outputs. At first I had problems with the battery that went into a short circuit and I had to replace it. The problem arose because I am in Greece for work, and despite having activated the guarantee Bh (and being in the European community) I had to provide for my expenses to the battery (and also to return it to me). Total 200 euros. Because of the bureaucratic procedure (I need a special document to send the battery by air) and the delay in the answers, I received the new battery after about 2 months from the battery damage. Not even 2 weeks later the engine was "gripped". Bike completely unserviceable. The Bh service told me to speak with the store where I bought the bike (Bicimarket in Barcelona) saying that they have to take care of the problem and the store no longer responds to emails. Moral I will have to wait to go back to Italy in October and try to resolve the issue by legal means. The bike deserves, but if it breaks down then it start the troubles!!
