The BULLS Lacuba Evo E8 Wave combines comfort with speed with its sleek design making it an excellent choice whether you are touring on pavement or trekking on gravel roads. With a comfortable saddle and a geometry designed to position you in an upright position, the SR Suntour fork is what absorbs most of the vibrations from whichever road you decide to travel on. A true multi-purpose vehicle, this electric bicycle will make your commute to work fast and sweat-free but your cruises through nature even breezier.
Although the battery is not immediately seen the 650 watt-hour, 36V, powerpack packs an impressive amount of power and range potential. The IPU EVO battery is semi-integrated into the frame and can be easily removed for your convenience.
Fully equipped, the Lacuba features Shimano hydraulic disc brakes which provide smooth and even braking even in the most extreme conditions. With a high capacity battery and an 8 speed drivetrain you can select a gear that extends the battery life to achieve further distances and conquer those steep hills you would usually try to avoid. In optimal riding conditions you can reach up to 120 miles on a full charge.
Other accessories such as a rear rack, front and rear light set, and fenders make this bike a true bang for your buck. The Lacuba Evo E8 will come in three different styles in order to have the best fit for everyone. The standard frame will have a regular top tube, a Step-Thru model that will have a very low entry, and our new Wave model which will have the lowest stand over clearance compared to any of our bikes.

LACUBA EVO E8 Wave Review
The BULLS Lacuba EVO E8 is one of the most popular models in the Bulls ebike lineup, it comes in four frame sizes and three styles (high-step diamond, mid-step, and step-thru wave), motor and battery weight are low and center. Extremely stealthy, the drive system and battery are almost completely hidden on this frame and the motor produces very little noise because it uses a belt system inside, this reduces vibration. Compared to the 2017 model, the price has dropped by $200 but it uses a standard chain vs. a fancy belt drive, the internally geared hub is durable and can be shifted at standstill, the LCD display is easy to read because it's large, has a Micro-USB charging port, and is removable. Excellent rear rack with pannier hangers, basic integrated lights that help you be seen, decent plastic fenders that rattle a bit but won't get bent up, I like the chain cover and guide on the chainring, highly-adjustable air suspension fork. The wider wheel diameter and slightly fatter tire makes the bike stable.
