BULLS E-Core EVO EN Di2
The BULLS E-Core EVO EN Di2 is an uber spec eMTB that will leave the competition miles behind. Its twin lightweight 375Wh batteries give a world-beating capacity of 750Wh total power. Sminano’s E8000 drive unit is perfectly syncronysed to a groupset designed for the rigors of ultimate off-road riding. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
Long-travel RockShox (F) and FOX Float (R) suspension will keep you in one piece on the way up and four-pot Shimano Saint hydraulic disc bakes provide ample stopping power should your nerve crack on the way back down.
▶ DRIVE UNIT
The high-power Shimano Steps E8000 motor delivers a smooth 70Nm of torque capable of taking you to the top of almost anything. There are three assistance modes: Eco, Trail and Boost, with the latter providing 300% assistance. The E8000 system also has a walk assist function to help manage the bike when you’re pushing not riding!
▶ Small is beautiful
The Shimano drive unit’s small form factor enables BULLS designers to incorporate shorter chainstays, this allows E8000 equipped bikes to benefit from the decades of frame geometry development that has gone into manual MTBs. Additionally, the very narrow width of the E8000 allows the retention of manual MTB’s narrow pedal position, resulting in a natural and efficient pedal stroke. Combining these features ensures a perfectly balanced riding position that other manufacturers can only dream of.
▶ Weight the enemy
At 2.8kg, the STEPS drive unit is a full kilo lighter than the Bosch drive system. While the Bosch unit uses a small drive sprocket that’s geared up from the crank (more moving parts = more mechanical losses), the Shimano is direct-drive, enabling use of 34T or 38T chainrings. The image shows rearward location of the hollowtech shaft and short chainstays.
▶ Tune and Update with Blue-tooth
Using the Shimano E-tube app on your pc, tablet or smartphone, you can adjust the preset power modes on your E8000 powerd e-bike to create personalized assistance levels on the fly with Bluetooth connection. No cables needed!
The Bulls has been designed with twin 375Wh batteries hidden in the down tube giving a total capacity of 750Wh. You can run with 1 to reduce weight on short runs, or fit a second if you’re planning longer trials. The Bulls comes with one battery so please let us know if you’d like us to supply a second (price TBA). The batteries, produced by Germany’s BMZ, are locked into the frame with a key and can be charged on or off the bike.

Commissioned and road tested e-bike
Before being delivered your electric bike is checked and road-tested by our expert staff to make sure everything is perfect.
Fully assembled and delivered direct to you by our expert staff
We don’t believe your e-bike experience should begin with a white van dropping off a brown cardboard box. This is a whole different delivery experience – our experienced staff will gladly spend time with you to make sure you’re happy with your choice and understand all its features, so be ready to put the kettle on!
One of our team will deliver your e-bike to your door fully assembled and tested at a pre-arranged time, and will work with you to ensure every thing is perfectly adjusted to suit your size and preferred riding style before that all-important test ride.
After your test ride, when everything has been fine-tuned to your liking and you are comfortable with your e-bike we will fit any accessories you may have ordered – or those you might already have – a favourite old saddle perhaps, a particular bell, or pair of trusted hand-me-down panniers.
Only when we are certain you are completely confident in your e-bike choice and understand how everything works will we leave you to enjoy your new found freedom.
The cost of this personal service varies depending on your location and whether you would prefer evening or weekend delivery, please email or telephone us for an estimate.
No quibble 100% money-back guarantee:
In the unlikely event that you’re not 100% delighted with your e-bike after the test-ride we simply take it back and either return later with alternative model of your choosing, or give you a 100% refund*.
*Note: After you have inspected the bike, completed the test ride and agreed that this is the right bike for you, the sale will be complete. Please be sure you are happy with everything before we leave as we cannot accept returns once our delivery staff have driven away unless the e-bike can been shown to have a design or manufacturing fault. We then retain the right to determine the appropriate remedy, be that on-site repair or replacement of a part, a replacement electric bike, or full or partial refund. If the reason you decide not to accept the bike could have been established easily before you ordered it (eg order a white bike and later decide you prefer black) we reserve the right to make reasonable charges for delivery and or any work done to the bike prior to delivery.
Parts and labour warranty:
A solid manufacturers warranty is a key benefit of choosing one of our quality European made e-bikes. In the unlikely event that a component fails a replacement will shipped to us from Holland or Germany, usually within 24hrs, and fitted free of charge either at our Suffolk workshop, or at your home if you have purchased our on-site service option.
Note: All our e-bikes carry a minimum two year warranty; please see e-bike specification table for model-specific variations.
Evening and weekend delivery:
Because few of us are at home during working hours these days, we offer the option of our personal home delivery service on Saturdays and Sundays, and evenings during the week.
Convenient dates for your service visits are arranged with our staff when we deliver your bike.
Experience has taught us that regular preventative maintenance is much better than simply reacting to problems as and when they occur. By choosing our on-site service option you’ll have the peace of mind that potential problems are likely to be identified and dealt with before they arise, thereby helping ensure your e-bike is safe and in good working order.
In the unlikely event that an unexpected problem arises – for example a puncture or broken front light – simply call or email us to bring forward a scheduled service and we will visit and carry out repairs.
Note: If you would prefer to bring your e-bike to our Suffolk workshop for servicing, the cost is £40 plus VAT.
