Light, stiff, fast – and comfortable
Thanks to the continuous cooperation of our engineers with the Team BULLS, the expression "less is better" acquires new importance in the fully revised frame of the Black Adder. Only weighing 2.09 pounds, the carbon hard tail of Team BULLS turns pedalling energy into merciless thrust thanks to the reinforced drive area. A shortened saddle tube, delicate sitting struts and a flatter top tube additionally ensure top comfort.
Safety brings speed
On the technically increasingly demanding marathon and cross-country routes, the Black Adder behaves with control and agility. And extended top tube at a shorter wheelbase adds safety and agility especially on a downhill run. On rises, the steeper sitting angle ensures the proverbial BULLS climbing power. Perfection is offered by the slightly shortened head tube in the "racing trim".
Integrated cable routing through the head tube
Thanks to the new cable routing through the head tube, the BULLS engineers have tidied up the cockpit of the Black Adder again. All the shifting groupsets up to Shimano Di2 and a telescopic saddle post are thus made nearly invisible and also protected from damage. Not to mention the impeccable look of the refined racer.
