With the BULLIT X01 / Air, Santa Cruz has made an great debut in the e-mountain bike sector. As you know from the non-motorized Santa Cruz bikes, the shock is also deeply integrated into the frame to pull the center of gravity as far down as possible.
As a component giant, Shimano is mostly known for its dominant position in bicycle gears. But with the EP8, the Japanese are clearly showing that they can look beyond their own plate too. The natural motor control and the harmonious power output characterise the character of the Shimano motor. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the BULLIT X01 / Air with only an average range.
