You might not have heard much about BULLs electric bikes since they are relatively new to the States. Since 2010, when they entered the e-bike market, they have been on the cutting edge of e-bike innovation.
BULLS cut their teeth on mountain bikes and have serious off-road chops. The brand views e-bikes as more than just transportation, but a new way to conquer the world.
BULLS brings decades of experience in the cycling world and designs their bike in conjunctions with expert riders and races.
In addition to their extensive eMTB offerings, their product line includes a number of road bikes and city bikes which are just a durable and high quality. In every category, BULLS e-bikes are thoughtfully designed and thoroughly specced out with the name brand components you trust.
But it’s the off-road product line where the brand really shines. Their eMTBs are build with aggressive riding in mind and is equipped with everything you need to shred harder for longer.
BULLS is relatively new on the scene, founded in 1995 in Cologne, Germany. But they took off like a jump jet in 2007 when Karl Platt and Stefan Sahm won the prestigous Cape Epic on BULLS’ Copperhead bike and when on to become the most successful mountain bike duo in the world.
But they didn’t let fame go to their heads, and BULLS remained dedicated to the mission that got them into the business in the beginning: building the best bikes possible.
All BULLS bikes are designed and tested in their German headquarters in Koln. Once they are approved and certified by international standards, the design are sent to South East Asia for manufacture under BULLS staff supervision.
They are more than a bicycle and eBike manufacturer. BULLS aims to innovate by combining state-of-the-art drive technology and the expertise of professional cyclists and engineers and they strive to set new industry standards.
An ebike, especially one as good as a BULLS bike can be a huge investment, so you may be wondering how long you can expect it to last. The good news is BULLS bikes are exceptionally well made and with regular maintenance they can last a long time.
An average ebike lasts around 10 years with average. An excellent bike that is taken exceptionally good care of can last well over a decade. However, some components will need to be repaired or replaced more regularly.
For the majority of ebikes, batteries last for around 1,000 charges. This usually comes out to about 3 - 5 years. To extend the life of the battery, be sure to store your bike with the battery just under full capacity. Between 40 - 80% is a safe range for storage. Then just top it up before you hit the trail.
When it’s time, batteries are generally easy to replace and provided by your ebike manufacturer.
Motors are expensive, but fortunately, they are among the longest lived of ebike components. A high-end motor can last as long as the bike itself and are sealed and protected against the elements. If something does happen to compromise your motor, be sure to hit us up for warranty details.
Chains and tires usually last between 1,000 and 3,000 miles, but with regularl cleaning and lubrication you can add time to it’s lifespan.
In 2018,LAPD Police Chief Charlie Beck unveiled the department’s pilot program of 20 electric bicycles to begin patrolling the city immediately. After a pilot program to test several bike brands, the city decided on a custom-made class 3 electric by designed by BULLS called Sentinel.
Beck himself is an avid cyclist and took a hands-on approach to testing the bikes on the pilate program.
The bikes will allow officers to respond to calls quicker, especially in congested downtown areas, and arrive ready to respond. It also, like the traditional bike counterparts, puts officers in a great position to interact with the public in a less aggressive mode.
The LAPD chose BULLS for many of the same reasons consumers do. A civilian-ready version of the Sentinel is now available to the general public and comes equipped with RockShox Pike heavy duty front suspension for better handling on urban scenarios.
