With the BULLIT XT / Coil, 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.
Shimano has become the biggest component manufacturer for bicycles thanks to its gear, pedal and brake components. It's clear that the Japanese want to shape the E-Bike trend from this dominant market position. No matter how steep or technical the climb is: the Shimano motor makes it conquerable! At the same time, the drive provides a well-rounded feeling while riding with a harmonious power delivery. The average range can become a problem especially for long mountain bike rides.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the BULLIT XT / Coil / Carbon CC / MX in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (11000) .

The good Fox chassis absorbs even larger roots with the calmness of a Buddhist monk. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. At the rear, the steel spring shock absorber provides maximum sensitivity. When it comes to the brakes, Santa Cruz reaches for the top shelf and instals premium brakes with four pistons and large brake rotors from Shimano. The average shifting components and accessories leave some tuning potential open. For most e-bikers, this should be an acceptable point. When it comes to the geometry, Santa Cruz 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. Hell yeah, the geometry is killer! Here the remarkable know-how of the Santa Cruz developers is videly visible. The scale stays at 22,49 kg with this model. That makes the BULLIT XT / Coil one of the light Enduros.
