Bullitt E8000 XT STEPS
Shimano STEPS seems not to get the attention other e-systems get and we've been puzzled by that. Our experience with the STEPS 6000 has been fantastic. The system is one of the least problematic e-assist systems we've worked with. Up until now, our primary complaint about STEPS 6000 was that it had minimal torque needed for a cargo bike: fine for many situations but not all. The STEPS XT E8000 addresses that and more!
Needless to say that we are stoked about the new STEPS E8000 Bullitt. We think this bike will prove to be one of the hottest e-cargo bikes available. According to Cycling Hacks, " If you want a cargo bike that’ll last you for years and has maximum versatility, you can’t go wrong with the Bullitt E8000. "
We have E8000 STEPS Bullitts in stock and they are proving to be well-liked by our customers. We're also carrying (arriving late September 2018) the NEW E6000 XT Di2 STEPS Bullitt.
1. It's built on a Bullitt frame. We have the utmost regard and respect for the Larry Vs Harry developer/engineer who created this bike. Not only is it well-designed but the manufacturing standards are equally high. Since the first Bullitt came off the production line in in 2007, LvH has kept pace with the latest technology and continues to refine the frame to keep it THE most versatile cargo bike around.
2. Shimano E8000 STEPS. The E8000 STEPS offers a 350 watt, motor that gives 70 Nm of torque. The high capacity 504 watt-hour battery adds only 5.77 pounds. The result is a lightweight, reliable, powerful, and high range cargo bike that you'll fall in love with.
3. Top quality components throughout. Shimano XT has long had the reputation of the best component level for the money. Sure, there are more expensive-higher quality parts but, XT has the best bang for the buck where cargo bikes are concerned. The fully integrated system is remarkably sophisticated. LvH elected to spec the Shimano XT Di2 components so you have the added benefit of electronic shifting. Whether new to bike transit, a seasoned commuter, or a superfit sport rider, you'll find the E8000 system paired with the Shimano XT Di2 drivetrain quite appealing. Durability, reliability, easy braking, and smooth and snappy shifting, are its trademark.
