Ten reasons to welcome Haibike’s 2017 e-bikes
Posted in: electric bikes
- This German company are recognised as the pioneers in e-mountain bikes
- Every Haibike e-mountain bike delivers up to 300% power assistance via its integrated motor unit manufactured by either Yamaha or Bosch –two of the world leaders in e-bike electronics
- 400Wh battery pack for extended range – you can expect up to 30 miles run time per charge when riding on full power assist mode in the most challenging conditions. Double or treble the run time if the roads are flatter, the head winds lighter, or you ride in (the still very helpful) eco mode
- Even the least expensive Haibike has the grunt to boost you up hills with little effort – even on climbs you’d previously have had to push the bike up
- Updated for 2017, many of the full suspension Haibikes now roll on 5×3” Plus tyres to deliver a new level of confidence-inspiring stability and traction
- Also this year, Haibike have reworked the geometry of their AllMtn and FullSeven ranges so the numbers are now positively Whyte-like (66-67 degree head tube angle, shorter chainstays, 74mm bars) – the highest praise we can bestow on a mountain bike
- At the other end of the spectrum if you’re pleasure is riding hilly roads and cycle paths with minimal effort we’ve introduced a flatbar hybrid/cross version of the Haibike Sduro with 700×40 tyres.
- You won’t mind hearing that the Sduro Cross is on the less expensive end of the Haibike e-bike price spectrum
- Talking of price, we considered dozens of brands before coming to the conclusion that if you’re looking for a sub-£2.5K hardtail e-mountain bike, Haibike would be our first recommendation
- Customer recommendation – you don’t need to take our word for it that Haibikes have the power to get you higher, check out this review from a recent e-bike convert.
