The connection port for charging the battery is in an easy to reach location on the side of the battery body, unlike that of the Specialized which is tucked down low by the bottom bracket. The Performance level Fox suspension works quite well, and it felt relatively well-balanced front and rear. All of our testers found the battery on the HaiBike to rattle when the going got rough on descents, and while this didn't seem to affect performance we all agreed that it's distracting and certainly not confidence inspiring. This is one hell of a bike! The provided charging cord is nice and long and provides plenty of length to reach a far away outlet. The bike has modern trail bike geometry with our measurements showing a slack 65.

A nice wide 780mm handlebar and a short stout stem handled the steering duties of this weighty rig. Can I try the bike before I buy? The bike's massive and chunky Schwalbe Magic Mary tires were a component spec highlight, providing incredible amounts of traction while climbing and descending, but after that, we were a bit confused by many of the other parts on this bike. How do you fit to a standard diamond or step-through frame? Our testers were not big fans of this setup, but the Shimano shifting worked flawlessly for us during testing as expected. Testers weren't wild about the feel and interesting braking noise of the Magura brakes, but they performed their job relatively well regardless. The 67° headangle and is perfectly reasonable for trail center razzing but the tall head tube leave you sitting quite upright and the short reach is less confidence inspiring on the descents.

It is not removable and cannot be swiveled to reduce glare, but the large plastic bezel looks tough and seems well protected inline with the stem. Die Motorleistung ist stets ausreichend. Thanks to our Gravity Casting motor interfaces we can integrate the motor in a compact manner without separate mounting plates. Fifteen years later they brought out the Xduro line of e-bikes, the very first-ever electric mountain bikes. Combined with the new refined freewheel design which creates a rapid engagement of the cranks, the result is a significantly more responsive motor, which provides a new level of a natural riding feel. Basically, the motor can engage faster! Bike has so far taken everything I've thrown at it and keeps coming back for more.

The digital display shows the support setting, battery charge, remaining distance range, and current speed. All three models utilize the same motor and battery pack, the biggest trade-offs are in suspension, saddles, brakes, and tires. Powering this ebike is a 489. Should the battery ever die while out on a ride, having those extra gears might come in handy should you need to pedal this 50 lb beast back to the trailhead without the assistance of the motor. Interestingly, the HaiBike feels the zippiest, perhaps because the Bulls motor accelerates more smoothly. Up or down, the Schwalbe Magic Mary's were a definite high point for the HaiBike and provided seemingly endless amounts of traction.

The more stable the interface is, the more stable the entire frame is. You can find out more about this unit. While we liked the presence of a digital display, testers felt that it was a little larger than they would like and is susceptible to contact with the knee or other potential damage. Power to climb hill after hill to enjoy more trails and go farther, which also means more time on downhill trails! Most manufacturers just spec these for the front. At e-bikeshop we work by appointment only, so we can talk to each customer on an individual basis to give the best advice possible.

Haibike XDURO AllMtn 8.0 Review

But they don't stop at electric mountain bikes. Unbeknownst to the tester, the sensor that is attached to the rear wheel was shifted out of position during the flat tire incident. For as long as she's been riding and is equally happy getting stuck into a kit review as she is creating stories, she also coaches mountain biking and when she's not busy with all the above she's serving coffee from a horse trailer! Haibike's Specs at a Glance Frame aluminium 6061, hydroformed, gravity casting interface, Tapered head tube, thru-axle M12 1. Matt explained that he appreciates the extra weight of electric bikes that keep you feeling planted, and that the centered motor and battery here make the ride feel balanced… but that they are more difficult to bunny hop and handle on jumps. Once pedaling, the power was delivered strongly and consistently with no hiccups, and shifting between the 5 output settings was impressively smooth. This is where some of the trade-offs and design compromises start to arise. I've used these brake before on non-electric bikes and found them to be pretty good; not uber powerful but reliable.
