One frame, different uses – with the Numinis R2700i, CENTURION have designed a touring bike with optional full equipment that bridges the gap between trail riding and everyday use. In our big budget eMTB group test, we’ve already tested the sporty variant without the full equipment.

A Numinis for all occasions! With the Numinis R2700i EQ, CENTURION offer a harmonious and exciting overall package, which retails at € 5,799 and should be suitable for most riding situations – from daily commutes to multi-day backcountry adventures all the way to moderate trail riding. Everything’s possible! The Numinis is particularly well suited for sporty everyday riders and commuters who only occasionally take off-road shortcuts – and take it easy when they do! On rough trails, the Numinis R2700i EQ reaches its limits.

The fully-equipped upgrade both suits and enhances the leisurely character of the CENTURION, with the pannier rack, kickstand, wide alloy mudguards, permanently installed Lezyne headlight and smartly integrated tail light providing the ideal solution for two-wheeled shopping sprees, exciting night rides and foul weather commutes. The high 150 kg max. permissible weight leaves room for a very decent payload while the trailer approval also lets you tow stuff around when needed.

The Bosch Performance Line CX motor packs a punch, allowing you to take full advantage of the high 150 kg max. permissible weight.
A rare sight: chunky tires with mudguards. The wide 2.4″ MAXXIS DISSECTOR tires generate sufficient traction but allow for very little clearance between the mudguard and tires.
The pannier rack comes standard with a neatly-integrated tail light, which ensures good visibility at night.

However, a high maximum payload calls for excellent motor performance. The powerful 85 Nm Bosch Smart System ensures decent propulsion even at low cadences, while the 750 Wh battery provides enough juice for long rides and commutes without a destination charging point. The Bosch Kiox 300 display shows the battery life and provides all the important riding data, while the eBike Lock function can be used to disable the motor functions. The FOX AWL fork might not be the best-performing fork out there but has all the essential mounting points for mudguards. The firm 140/130 mm (f/r) suspension provides direct feedback from the ground, making the Numinis less comfortable on very long tours. Particularly striking is the peculiar combination of wide 2.4″ MAXXIS DISSECTOR tires and mudguards, which have to be carefully aligned to avoid friction – simply because there’s not much space between them! As long as you avoid the extremes, the Numinis can be lots of fun!
