“What’s that Daddy?”, the 5 year old asked as she pointed at the archaic benches hanging from rusted metal ropes. “That is… or was a chairlift, honey.” said the father with a vague sigh.
The setting is any mountain in the world in the not-so-distant future as Enduro and Downhill riders take to the mountains on the BULLS E-Core EVO EN Di2 27.5. Powered by Shimano’s new 250W E-8000 eMTB motor and 375Wh (750Wh optional) power pack, you’ve got the juice and the torque to conquer the climb and 180mm front (Rock Shox Lyrik) and rear (Fox Float X2 Air) suspension to smash the decent. And for the transition: a KS Lev-Integra dropper seat post. Unfailing and immediate shifting kicks in thanks to Di2 XT electronic shifting that runs off the bike’s battery. 203mm Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes provide almost dirt-bike level stopping power.
