The LT CX 27,5 represents the entry-level price point for e-mountain bikes at Germany-based bike manufacturer Bulls. The attached battery is a toll to pay at the low price. However, graphic accents succeed in making the look integrative. Mounting options for mudguards, luggage racks or side stands as well as bottle cages are there.
Bosch is the major motor manufacturer in the EMTB world, alongside Shimano - and it's no surprise, as the Performance Line CX Smart System shows. The Bosch motor takes away the fear of even the steepest ramps. The combination of a very natural riding feeling and a dynamic power delivery characterises the Bosch Performance Line CX Smart System. The well-tuned riding modes cater to bikers of all preferences. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the LT CX 27,5 , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the LT CX 27,5 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (3000) .

On rough terrain, the LT CX 27,5, with its only average fork, lacks some control. In descending situations, the Tektro brakes require a lot of hand strength or, optionally, courage from the rider. With two pistons and small 18 brake rotors, they only brake poorly. The drivetrain and components have a subordinate but not to be neglected importance when it comes to EMTB. Even the bike brand product managers know this and don't aim too high with mostly average components. If the Meta's chainstay length is less than 445 short wheelbase and a moderate reach value make the handling pleasantly playful. Small wheels are becoming rare, but with the LT CX 27,5 the 27.5 wheels pay off with a playful riding experience. The low bottom bracket height is a party pooper for the handling on the trail. On other bikes, you are more centrally located behind the handlebar.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Bulls LT CX 27,5

With a weak brake system and a poor range, the LT CX 27,5 definitely has weaknesses. Nevertheless, it remains a solid all-rounder with a wide range of abilities , thanks to an outstanding motor and a top-notch geometry.
