New e-bikes feature improved spec, connectivity, and range
Premium e-bike manufacturer Bulls Bikes has expanded its offerings with new plus e-bikes, including a women’s specific model. Here’s a full rundown of highlights from the Interbike trade show in Las Vegas.
Meet the new Bulls E-Core EVO EN Di2 27.5 plus bike. Powered by Shimano’s 250W E-8000 eMTB motor and 375Wh (750Wh optional) powerpack, you’ve got the juice and the torque to conquer the climb and 180mm front (RockShox Lyrik) and rear (Fox Float X2 Air) suspension to smash the decent. Other highlights include Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes that provide almost dirt-bike level stopping power, a KS Lev Integra dropper post, and the unfailing and immediate shifting of a Shimano XT Di2 electronic drivetrain that runs off the bike’s battery.
Next in line is the Bulls E-Core Di2 FS. Integration is this 27.5+ bike’s middle name. The 500Wh powerpack is integrated seamlessly into the downtube. The Shimano Di2 XT electronic shifters are integrated with the battery, eliminating the need for a separate battery and the risk of running out of juice for shifting when you need it most. And your ride is plush thanks to the 150mm RockShox Yari in the front and RockShox Deluxe RL Air in the rear. The assist controls are integrated into the shift mechanism, so operation is intuitive. Magura MT-5/MT-4 brakes stop the ride, but not the fun.
The E-Stream EVO AM 27.5 utilizes the Brose Drive S to bring power and efficiency to the already phenomenal Brose system with Bulls proprietary 650Wh battery, which makes long rides no problem. This means climbing steeper hills faster. It’s also fitted with 150mm RockShox Lyrik fork and RockShox Deluxe RT shock. Other spec highlights include a KS Lev Integra dropper post, Magura MT-5/MT-5 brakes, and Schwalbe Magic Mary tires.
Women riders will be thrilled with the Aminga E TR1, a true performance machine. Highlights include the peppy Bosch Performance CX and 500Wh powerpack, ample 120mm dual suspension and 27.5+ tires will get you up and over just about anything.
Finally, Bulls has rolled out the SIX50 EVO AM 4, an all-mountain eMTB powered by Bosch with EMTB Mode and the new Bosch Powertube integrated into the downtube. Splashes of orange from the Fox Factory 36 Float front fork and the Bulls proprietary aluminum bash guard that cover and protect the middle mount motor, draw your eye to this epic ride. That Fox fork and Fox float rear shock each give you 150mm of plush suspension. Shimano XT keeps you shifting predictably when you need the right gear ratio, and 203/180mm Magura MT Trail brakes provide superb stopping power.
