Should You Buy the Bulls E-Stream EVO AM 4?

(Probably.)

 

That is, if you're looking for a powerful eMTB to join you for hours on end up steep hills, without feeling the demand of the terrain. The 2019 Bulls E-Stream EVO AM 4 is equipped with that torquey Brose Drive S Mag motor that's great for sporty riders. Couple it with a Supercore 750 Wh battery and a Magura MT5 brake system, and you can barrel through just about any trail with the confidence of a beastly race horse. 

Some Upgrades to the 2020 Model

The 2020 E-Stream EVO AM 4 offers all of that same power from that Brose Drive S Mag motor, but with Shimano Deore XT hydraulic disc brakes with 203 mm rotors: The stopping power on these babies is impressive. Fly Rides' own busboy, Scott Nickley, took the eMTB out for a spin, and felt more confident than ever. Want to see more of his ride and full review? Of course you do, so click the link below!

Full Spec Breakdown

Top-notch components and high-end performance is the reason the Bulls E-Stream EVO AM 4 bike is so beloved by intermediate and advanced riders. The full suspension, extended travel, and comfortable geometry make it easy to ride the long distance a 750 Wh battery allows you. Again, the Brose motor is at the core of this bike's essence, giving you insane out-the-gate power and blissful climbs uphill. Be careful on descents, though, because that torque ain't playing around. Especially considering Brose incorporated a "Flex Power Mode." The entire drivetrain is Shimano, giving you more playful, concise ride. Fat tire lovers will embrace the 27.5" tubeless wheelset with plus size 2.8" Schwalbe Hans Dampf SpeedGrip tires. The quality doesn't stop there; you get nice 150 mm travel with a Fox 36 Rhythm Float Boost Fork and a Fox Float DPS Performance shock in the rear. Lastly, Bulls topped specs off with a MonkeyLink system, handy for commuters. 

The Longest Ride

Our final word? The Bulls 2020 E-Stream EVO AM 4 is the king of range! For hours on end, this model's power and performance let you climb with ease and descend with grace. The pedal assist is outrageous, response is sensitive, and the travel is generous. For a long ride in an enchanted forest, a Bulls eMTB is your steed.

One question we get asked a lot is if an eBike can be used on roads and for mountain biking. It makes sense - you want a versatile bike that you can use for all kinds of situations.
