SANTA CRUZ LAUNCH THE NEW BULLIT
Santa Cruz have again revived an old faithful name, this time in the form of a revised Bullit. Santa Cruz have dabbled in the e-bike market recently with the new Heckler, a fun, playful and capable all rounder, but the Bullit takes this a step further. Taking characteristics from their successful Syndicate program, the Bullit is ready to take on the highest and wildest trails.
After Loris Vergier initiated the MX ( Mixed ) wheel version of their V10 they have applied this to their new Bullit with a 29 front wheel up front for stability and confidence and a 27.5 rear wheel to keep things party out back. With the new Shimano EP8 motor and a 630Wh battery to tow the 170mm rig up to the top of the burly descents, the Bullit is certainly geared towards going like a bat out of hell all day long.
An all-out descender, the Bullit comes equipped with a 170mm Fox 38 fork up front, and is even running double down tires off the factory floor to hide it’s every intention in plain sight.
More Battery, Better Motor
The new motor is 310g lighter than the E8000 (2.57kg), delivering a more efficient pedaling platform with a claimed 36% less drag and a whopping 85Nm torque to keep you climbing with a plastered grin all day long.
Santa Cruz have fallen upon a winning formula with their current VPP design and frame aesthetic. Their is no denying that at a distant glance this is indeed a Santa Cruz frame. Retaining its lifetime warranty on all bearings and their trusted CC carbon frame, the Bullit is built to perform.
Sana Cruz Di2 Bar
A great addition is the clean look from Santa Cruz’s own Di2 bar. Featuring a hole to keep wires for their STEPS module hidden out of view within the bar to keep the clean look they are known for.
