Take only pictures; leave only tracks
As we continue to develop, BULLS is constantly striving to set new industry standards. Our bikes are equipped with the latest and the greatest of bicycle technology. BULLS mountain bikes are developed for the most extreme trail conditions, and for endurance purposes. Testing is done by the some of the most demanding people imaginable: The Team BULLS. These riders constantly put their bikes and equipment through intense trials, never imagined by recreational riders. Thanks to their dissatisfaction, and their need to want everything lighter and stronger, they constantly challenge our development team to the utmost to make it reliable and durable.
At BULLS we have adopted a concept called Endurance Lite Concept, or ELC for short. While focusing on comfort we make sure that the bike is as stiff as possible where absolutely necessary. For some time it was believed that the complete frame needed to be stiff. Stiffness is crucial in certain areas, but not needed throughout the entire frame. To sum it up, every bike marked with the ELC-logo has been developed with these priorities in mind. You will receive a well-balanced bike that has the best power transfer for maximum driving force, best possible steering output, and is still extremely comfortable for even the longest tours.
Climbing to the Top Demands Strength and a Great Bicycle
When it gets really steep, a real "mountain bike" is needed. Marathon specialists such as Team BULLS Urs Huber praised the climbing skills of the BLACK ADDER, which is trimmed down for performing well in competition. The Swiss man (Urs Huber) has won many of the toughest World Cup races in the Alps with his Black Adder Team. With high-class equipment all around, the carbon fiber racing machine for high mountains captivates through a mature frame concept and uncompromising use of only the very best components. Ultralight and yet extremely rigid, the Black Adder Team converts every watt of output into propulsion; giving you the right edge to conquer every single time the toughest mountains.
Balance for Maximum Performance
The perfect symbiosis of sensitivity and stamina marks the character of the Black Adder Team. The Fizik seat stays effectively and absorbs the vibrations that wear the rider down, the specially reinforced tube diameter at the crank bearing casing ensures maximum propulsion, comfort, and power in complete harmony.
Extended Chain Stays for the Steepest Climbs
Black Adder Teams outstanding climbing properties make it a real "mountain biking machine". Determinant for the perfect adhesion to the race hardtails are the long chainstays which offer optimal traction, even on the steepest terrains. The extended top tube ensures a perfect riding position and impressively rounds off the concept of the summit stormer.
Monocoque: The Ideal Weight
Every extra gram that has to be dragged up the mountain is overweight. With just under 1000 grams, the frame of the Black Adder is an absolute lightweight winner. Thanks to the monocoque process in the manufacturing of the bicycle, the Black Adder Team is the perfectly balance illustration of weight to stiffness.
Tapered Steerer: Better Steering Stability
The conical head tube with its semi-integrated ball bearings, a.k.a. Tapered Steerer, ensures maximum riding safety and steering stability. Because of the downwardly expanded inside diameter, steering head and fork profit in a crucial area of increased rigidity. Simultaneously, the arising forces are deflected to the frame with less strain on the material.
