The LT EVO PERFORMANCE 29 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.
The Performance Line CX Smart System from Bosch shows impressively that they shouldn't be limited to DIY and household products. The Bosch motor takes away the fear of even the steepest ramps. The combination of a very well-rounded riding feeling and a progressive power delivery characterises the Bosch Performance Line CX Smart System. Achieving such a perfect balance between natural support and power is something few other engines can do. The average range can become a problem especially for long mountain bike rides.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the LT EVO PERFORMANCE 29 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (3000) .

The suspension fork is unfortunately not very high quality. On rough terrain, many riders may lack the control of the suspension at the front. Especially heavy riders should be aware that the Tektro only decelerates poorly. Shifting and components still leave room for improvement. Other providers dig deeper into their pockets for these assemblies. When it comes to the geometry, Bulls does not go completely crazy. The head tube angle and reach values were chosen with care. The result: A balanced riding behaviour with a good combination of playfulness and straight-line stability. The low bottom bracket height will likely be a sticking point for trail riders, as it negatively affects handling.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Bulls LT EVO PERFORMANCE 29

With a weak fork and a poor brake system, the LT EVO PERFORMANCE 29 definitely has weaknesses. Nevertheless, it remains a solid all-rounder with a wide range of abilities , thanks to an extremely good motor and an outstanding geometry.
