BULLS E-Core EVO Di2 29’er
The BULLS E-Core Di2 29’er carries twin lightweight 375Wh batteries (one supplied with bike, second available as an optional upgrade) with a world-beating capacity of 750Wh total power. Sminano’s E8000 drive unit is perfectly matched to wheel size, frame, and groupset resulting in a perfectly balanced ride both on and off-road. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
High-end Rock Shox Air suspension will keep you in one piece on the way up, and four-pot Magura MT5 hydraulic disc bakes provide ample stopping power on the way back down.
▶ DRIVE UNIT
The high-power Shimano Steps E8000 motor delivers a smooth 70Nm of torque capable of taking you to the top of almost anything. There are three assistance modes: Eco, Trail and Boost, with the latter providing 300% assistance. The E8000 system also has a walk assist function to help manage the bike when you’re pushing not riding!
▶ Small is beautiful
The Shimano drive unit’s small form factor enables BULLS designers to incorporate shorter chainstays, this allows E8000 equipped bikes to benefit from the decades of frame geometry development that has gone into manual MTBs. Additionally, the very narrow width of the E8000 allows the retention of manual MTB’s narrow pedal position, resulting in a natural and efficient pedal stroke. Combining these features ensures a perfectly balanced riding position that other manufacturers can only dream of.
▶ Weight the enemy
At 2.8kg, the STEPS drive unit is a full kilo lighter than the Bosch drive system. While the Bosch unit uses a small drive sprocket that’s geared up from the crank (more moving parts = more mechanical losses), the Shimano is direct-drive, enabling use of 34T or 38T chainrings. The image shows rearward location of the hollowtech shaft and short chainstays.
▶ Tune and Update with Bluetooth
Using the Shimano E-tube app on your pc, tablet or smartphone, you can adjust the preset power modes on your E8000 powerd e-bike to create personalized assistance levels on the fly with Bluetooth connection. No cables needed!
The Bulls has been designed with twin 375Wh batteries hidden in the down tube giving a total capacity of 750Wh. You can run with 1 to reduce weight on short runs, or fit a second if you’re planning longer trials. The Bulls comes with one battery so please let us know if you’d like us to supply a second (price TBA). The batteries, produced by Germany’s BMZ, are locked into the frame with a key and can be charged on or off the bike.
