The brand spanking new eBullitt 6000 XT Di2

So we had a bright idea… -again!

How about coupling the Shimano STePS 6000 system with an external derailleur and cassette, so you get the economical and excellent functioning Shimano STePS 6000 matched with the broad cassette and excellent crisp and sharp shifting of XT Di2?!

Ok, now the best bit.
It costs the same as the eBullitt 6000:
€4260

 

No compromise here, you can choose between an internal gear system or external gear system without any cost implications. If you need the extra features of the STePS 8000 system then no problem, go wild, but realistically the internal and external versions of the  STePS 6000 have you covered for 90% of applications.

We took it out for a ride to take some quick pictures and we were gobsmacked how nicely it rides. The gear ratios, super quick shifting and brake choices are fantastic and the tried and tested Shimano STePS system provides amazing assistance.

Honestly, this is a brilliant addition to the Bullitt armada.

There you have it. We now offer three electrically assisted Bullitt models that serve  the whole cargo crazy spectrum . Each have their own characteristics and cool features that set them apart from each other, two with the external XT di2 rear derailleur, and one with the Alfine 8 di2 internal hub.

It’s important to emphasize too that due to the low q factor of Shimano’s STePS motor, we have managed to maintain the Bullitt’s geometry. This means that the eBullitt’s ride is just as nimble and spritely as the regular frame.

That is something we are really proud of… a cargo bike should be fun to ride god dammit!
