Copperhead 29 Plus
When faster, lighter, stronger is needed
When the Copperhead first took off, in 2007, no one knew it would grow to be the most popular model off of the BULLS catalog. With much testing and experimenting we soon realized how golden the geometry and technology was. We ended up with a bike that accelerates like a race bike, yet offers the all-day riding comfort of a marathon/touring hardtail. For this year we added a couple of new innovations from our higher end models to the highly praised Copperhead 29 Plus frame. The BULLS Copperhead 29 Plus is now equipped with beefier hubs and through axles for added strength and rigidity to give you that extra confidence when bombing down those rough terrains. We also added slots on the frame to run the cables and hoses internally through the frame for a slick clean look. The Copperhead 29 Plus is truly an only in its class. Key features like a triple butted aluminum frame keeps the weight low to make climbing easier and those extensive rides less stressful. Tapered headtube increase the front end stiffness and makes sure the bike goes where you want it to go when you need it to go. Press fit bottom bracket makes sure you have the most efficient power transfer going through your drivetrain. Topped off with a RockShox Reba fork you can rest at ease knowing that you will have a fork that will last for many rides to come. A solid foundation with all the supporting components is what make the Copperhead plus the best in its class.
