We are excited to add Haibike electric mountain and trekking bicycles to our range of other ebikes from IZIP electric bicycles (by Currie Tech), Electra, and Trek. Please visit us to learn more about what a true "hybrind" electric assist bicycle can enhance your life. For immediate assistance, please call Jeff 617-230-0131; why wait for an email?
Electric bikes have come of age, delivering many miles of smooth, reliable, powered assistance. Whether you are an experienced rider or a beginner, the Haibike electric bikes makes the ride better.
For those looking for some help going the distance, or an extra lap of the trail centre, whether you are just starting work or enjoying retirement, modern ebikes make cycling inclusive!
Enduro Mountain Bike Mag reviewed the Haibike Xduro Nduro Pro electric mountain bike and said it’s the “game changer of 2014 for the entire bike industry!”
Each of the bikes uses the Bosch crank drive system. Rather than the motor being mounted directly in the hub like many other e-bikes the crank drive turns the chain wheel and provides plenty of torque.
The motor supplies assistance as soon as you pedal, amplifying, rather than replacing, your own power. Like all electric bike motors in the UK, speed is capped at 15.5mph (25km/h) so that the bike maintains its legal status as a bicycle. Of course, the bike can go faster than that – the motor simply cuts out at 15.5mph so you can sail downhill as fast as you please. Power output is also capped to a maximum of 250w.
This system charges in a record time of 2.5 hours, and has an integrated battery locking system. The motor is under the bottom bracket for an optimal centre of gravity, and provides more torque and range than a hub drive bike by using the bikes gears.
The position of the motor and the battery is in the middle of the frame. This maintains the bikes low centre of gravity so it should be easier to control as you adapt to the different feel of an electric bike.
The Bosch motor is impressively quiet so you won’t disturb the peace and quiet of your cross-country ride.
