NuVinci Optimized 10-page review

The Dutch magazine E-Bike & Trekking has recently published a 10-page NuVinci Optimized bike review, which is featured on the cover page. 

The article includes various highly favorable comments and covers tests of seven NuVinci Optimized eBikes: Dutch ID Tour N360H, Flyer T8N, Gazelle Orange CX HM, Koga E-Nova NuVinci, Qwic P-MN360, Sparta MNb, Trek TM700+. There is also a comparison between NuVinci Cycling's technology and the automatic Shimano Steps Di2 system, which states that there is no alternative for cyclist, who wants a continuous variable system because the Shimano system does not shift under load and the shift feeling is less smooth/seamless than the NuVinci Optimized experience. The test coordinator of the article stated: "The real test winner is the automatic NuVinci Harmony. The ultimate option for every luxury e-bike."
