BULLS CLOSSLITE EVO Review – $4.9k

https://electricbikereview.com/bulls/crosslite-evo/ The BULLS CLOSSLITE EVO is a premium hybrid electric bike available in three frame styles and three sizes, impressive 180mm hydraulic disc brakes with quad piston caliper up front for improved power and cooling, pre-wired for a seat post dropper, integrated LED lights with side view for maximum visibility, reflective puncture resistant tires from Schwalbe. Upgraded Ergon locking grips, gender specific Velo saddle (that felt very comfortable), sleek air suspension fork with adjustable compression and lockout, surprisingly lightweight at 52lb to 55lb depending on frame style and size, sturdy adjustable stem provides a range of body positions and improved comfort. Ready for all types of weather with sturdy but sleek aluminum alloy fenders, a full length plastic chain cover, a metal chainring guard and narrow wide tooth chainring that reduces drops, one of the nicest drivetrains I’ve seen on any hybrid city ebike: Shimano SLX derailleur with massive 10 to 51 tooth lightweight cassette! Reliable, lightweight, powerful Bosch Gen 4 CX mid-motor and top-end PowerTube 625 internal battery pack, top-end Bosch Kiox color display panel with integrated Micro-USB, higher priced product based on premium specs, great network of dealers in North America, rear rack and light have some limitations, step-thru frame is a bit heavier and may flex a bit compared to mid-step and high-step.

  6. Great review as usual Court but for $4900 that bike should be a class 3 pedalec. You had mentioned that ā€œfor a little bit moreā€ than a lower Pegasus, one could purchase this Bulls. I donā€™t consider $1500 to $2000 more a ā€œlittle bit!ā€ But, keep up the great reviews!

  7. I think Bosch could help people with poor leg power, if they could give a cadence only option, am sure it could be switchable even.

  8. Overpriced rich boy toy, ebikes now illegal here in new york thanks to mario coumo!!!…$500.00 fine every time your pulled over.These manufactures need to start lobbying to legalize them or alot of people will be stuck with an ebike they cant use.

  9. Can you do a review on the SONDORS MXS bike thank you

    Thanks a lot for the great review and the information. Well done and fantastic bike!

  11. Is it CLOSSLITE or Crosslite? Another great review. Thanks.

  12. I am surprised they spec a set of ‘cheap’ plastic pedals. I suppose nowadays most folks buy better pedals for clipless shoes or big platforms, I’m a bit of an old schooler that likes 1980 type beartraps. Quad piston calipers; my 1967 Volvo 122s had a non-servo Ate brake system with 4 pot calipers and it was the best set of non assist brakes I’ve had in a car.

  13. Is it hard to give minor criticism when the owner is standing right there?

  14. First comment love the vids

  15. A premium bike at a premium price, lots of cool details. For big budget buyers at just under $5 K. Value buyers will have difficulty swallowing the $3,000 price difference vs many of the "parts piles" generic direct sale ebikes that EBR reviews. But its got everything that makes for a fantastic ebike experience. I find the Ergon grips to be an important detail for comfort, I changed out my eMTB to GA3 and town bike to GP1. Bosch did a great job on the gen 4 CX, at half the weight of previous and nice battery. My biggest ask for these type of premium ebikes (or any ebike) is for manufacturers to get moving with theft protection – integrated PIN or password activated motor, with mobile network GPS tracking built into the frame. No PIN, then the bike is bricked. The one complaint I hear more and more is expensive ebikes getting ripped off.

  16. You should review the Onyx RCR

  17. Nice bike at $3500. Not worth it at 4900. Would be better off spending 2500 on a bike with the same motor and upgrading the rest.
