What really sets the Lacuba E8 apart is not only the abundant choices in frame sizes and styles, but premium components like an air shock suspension fork and a Gates carbon belt drive. Bulls is known for delivering incredible value, and the E8 packs in a lot of it, somewhat comparable to more expensive eBikes like the Reise & Muller Nevo.
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.
Carbon belt are a premium upgrade for a super long service interval (among other benefits) work only on bikes with internally-geared bikes with a "split" frame. Carbon drives don’t require lube, making them a cleaner option. They are also lighter, quieter and more durable than a chain. Service life for a belt is at least 3 times that of a chain. Paired with today’s wide-range internally geared hubs (like a Rolhoff or Nuvinci), belt drives have produced a super low-maintenance commuter bike.
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.
