LAPD Goes Green with Bulls e-Bike Fleet

Pedal Magazine - - ENews -

Ear­lier this year, the Los An­ge­les Po­lice De­part­ment (LAPD) an­nounced the ad­di­tion of 20 Bulls Sen­tinel e-bikes with pedal as­sist to its bi­cy­cle unit. Expanding to four di­vi­sions, LAPD says e-bikes could “rad­i­cally change how we po­lice in an ur­ban-type en­vi­ron­ment.” Other po­lice de­part­ments us­ing e-bikes in­clude Green Bay, Wis.; Tuc­son, Ariz.; and Lon­don, Eng­land. Bulls Bikes USA claims to have the most ex­ten­sive e-bike prod­uct line in the U.S. The Sen­tinel model was de­signed over a nine-month process be­tween Bulls and the LAPD to meet the needs of the de­part­ment. It is ca­pa­ble of reach­ing speeds of up to 28mph across vary­ing ter­rains and comes equipped with a Bosch Per­for­mance Speed motor and 180x200mm Magura hy­draulic ro­tor-disc brakes.
