Bulls Lacuba Evo E45
Bulls Lacuba Evo E45
The Lacuba E45 is a special blend of a huge range 650 watt hour battery, stealthily integrated into its frame, along with top quality components in a upright comfortable 28mph touring/commuter eBike.
- Speedy Upright available in traditional diamond and easy mounting step thru and low step frame styles.
- Comfortable for long rides with an adjustable stem, active-comfort saddle, ergonomic grips, and 63mm of travel suspension fork with lockout and preload adjustment.
- Powerful & Efficient Brose T motor celebrated for a "natural" feeling power delivery and quiet operation. Neatly integrates into the frame, so it looks more like a regular bicycle.
- Extra long range 50-130 miles from a 650 watt hour battery that becomes part of the frame.
- Stop on a dime with powerful 203 mm hydraulic disc brakes
- Exceptionally large gear range from a 20 speed, premium Shimano Deore XT drivetrain. (Deore 10 speed on 2018 models)
The Lacuba E45 (28mph) stands out in comfortable upright class of eBike for several hard to find upgrades: A very large battery capable of up to 130 miles hidden away inside the frame - rear and front derailleurs for a super wide range, allowing for both easy climbing on steep ascents and high speed on the flats - low step and step thru frame styles for easy mounting, something very hard to find in a 28mph bike.
Capable of long range tours in the country, but tough enough as a daily rider in the city the Lacuba can easily serve as a car replacement. Commute ready with a full complement of commuter accessories like integrated front and rear lights (rear light goes brighter when braking) rear rack, fenders, chainguard, an air pump and bell.
The display panel is big, bright, and easy to read, and can be quickly removed if you don't want to leave it on the street when you lock up. It has two graphs that show how much energy you are putting in with your pedal force, and also how much the motor is putting out - which allows you to budget your power by realizing when you should be shifting or pedaling harder to conserve power.
The Brose T motor is focused on a "natural" feeling power delivery and hitting the perfect balance between power and efficiency to ensure maximum range. Torque peaks at 90 nm, but in order to get the most from the T motor, your pedaling cadence needs to be over 70 rotations per minute. Specialized uses the T motor, but calls it "Turbo 1.2" and it is bluetooth capable.
Batteries that are integrated into the downtube are increasingly being used to keep an eBike looking stealthy so they blend in better. Like downtube batteries, this battery's location advantages include better handing because the bike will handle most naturally the closer the battery is to the cranks where the pedals are. This location can also be used on step through designs - allowing easier entry at the same time having ideal weight distribution.
The norm for most bikes, with great ratio range, lots of low speed torque as well as top end gears for high speeds, and easy access to service and change flats. For eBikes shifting over the entire range when the bike is at rest can be a problem, a challenge less active cyclists face at first. They can get your trousers dirty if you aren't careful. Good quality gears can last with frequent maintenance, but will wear out faster than internal gears and belt drives.
