Santa Cruz Bullit Top Tier Build

he Bullit X01 AXS RSV is ready to rumble between the tape or charging downhill on local BLM trails. This bike is designed to charge. The mixed wheelset gives riders the confidence to roll over anything with a 29” front wheel, and a playful 27.5” rear wheel so you can whip the Bullit around tricky terrain and tight turns.

The entire Bullit lineup features Carbon CC frames but the X01 AXS RSV is decked out with a highly efficient SRAM X01 AXS electronic drivetrain and Santa Cruz’s RSV carbon wheels. Lap after lap, you’ll experience show-stopping electronic performance paired with durability and efficiency.

The suspension system on the Bullit X01 AXS RSV includes a FOX Factory 38 170mm fork, favored for its adjustability and durability. The RockShox Super Deluxe rear shock is built for aggressive riding and features bottom-out protection in the last 20% of compression. Talk about confidence-inspiring.

The Santa Cruz Bullit X01 AXS RSV is a hard-charging eMTB that doesn't overlook comfort in the quest for top performance.

The Best Santa Cruz Bullit Value Builds

When choosing one of the four build kits offered for the Santa Cruz Bullit, you can't go wrong. All start with strong, lightweight Carbon CC frames. The Bullit R is the most budget-friendly option and is, surprisingly, within one pound of the lightest weight build.

The Bullit R is gravity focused with a 170 mm RockShox Zeb fork and a highly-tunable Rockshox Super Deluxe Select 170mm rear shock. The Bullit’s 170 mm of VPP™ travel is hard-hitting, built to endure rugged terrain and a perfect match for high-speed all-mountain riding.

SRAM Guide brakes and Avid Centerline rotors offer confidence-inspiring stopping power. The no-fuss SRAM NX Eagle groupset and Shimano EP8 Drive Unit are designed to give riders efficient uphill travel and durable downhill performance.

All Bullit build kits feature mixed wheelsets. Robust WTB wheelsets and the Maxxis Double Down Assegai-Minion tire combo on the Bullit R are built for smashing through rugged terrain and staying composed enough for lap after lap.
