    Haibike unveils its 2018 E-Bike range

    Our E-Bike team have been in Germany recently for the official launch of Haibike's 2018 range, and the unveiling of some exciting new products and innovations set to have a big influence on the future of the electric mountain bike market.

    Who are Haibike?

    For the uninitiated, Haibike are the world’s leading electric mountain bike brand. Hailing from Germany, Haibike have been developing bikes since 1995 and have almost 100 years of expertise to call upon as part of their parent company, WinoraGroup.

    One of the brand’s key innovations was the introduction of the XDURO FS model in 2010. With the launch of the XDURO FS Haibike didn’t just open the door to a new way of riding a bike – they kicked it down. This marked the beginning of the company’s success and the start of the eMTB boom, with Haibike the first – and for a long time, the only – brand to believe in the potential of sporty eBikes that could balance and combine physical human performance with electric support in what they term ‘ePerformance’.

    Another point of difference for Haibike is their commitment to design, which they call ‘Visible Integration’. While most brands will work to hide the motor away so that your eBike looks as similar as possible to a regular bike, Haibike believe that an eBike should embrace its characteristics rather than trying to hide them. Rather than hiding characterising features like the motor or battery, they aim to integrate them convincingly, and to engineer consistent, well-proportioned eBikes that shape their entire class.

    What's new in the Haibike 2018 range?

    The key change for Haibike heading into 2018 is a change in naming standards as they redefine the categories of bikes that they offer. Previously, their electric range was split by sDuro (with a Yamaha motor) and xDuro (signifying a Bosch motor was being used), and while the names continue for 2018, their meanings have been completely refreshed making the range clearer and easier to understand. So, for 2018 and beyond, Haibike’s models fall into two categories:

    • xDuro: Suitable for more extreme riders, looking for that big hitting, thrilling all terrain eBike.
    • sDuro: More suited to sporty riders. Practical and stable without being over the top.

    So, how does this break down across the 2018 range? Under the xDuro banner, you’ll find bikes geared towards the more extreme rider, with full suspension models with up to 200mm travel. This side of the range includes the AllMtn, DwnHll, FullSeven, NDuro and FatSix fat bike bikes with Bosch Performance CX, and Yamaha PW-X and PW-SE systems in use, both using 500wh batteries. With more aggressive tech on board the xDuro range format sits towards the pricier end of Haibike’s offering, starting from £3,299 for the Yamaha-equipped FatSix 8.0, all the way up to the top of the range full suspension carbon fibre FullSeven Carbon 11.0 at an eye-watering £11,799.

    As mentioned, sDuro now covers more relaxed, sporty models including Trekking, Cross/Hybrid, Hardtail MTBs and some short travel full suspension eBikes. Again, power comes from Bosch CX, Yamaha PW-SE and PW-X with some of the higher spec models using Bosch’s ‘InTube’ battery integration. Prices for the sDuro range are, as you might expect, more geared towards the entry level end of the market – sneaking under the £2,000 price point is the HardFour 2.0 hardtail eMTB with a 400wh Yamaha motor, with the hardtail range extending up to £3,399 for the HardSeven 8.0. The Cross & Trekking bikes range from £2,149 up to £3,949, while the sDuro’s full suspension models start from £2,949. Haibike also offer a women’s specific range with their ‘Life’ range which includes both full suspension and hardtail eMTB models – prices here run from £2,149 up to £4,199.

    New & upgraded eSystems for 2018

    Haibike has introduced the new Yamaha PW-SE to its range for 2018 - sitting between the Yamaha PW and PW-X, the upgraded PW-SE motor has been chosen to power the mid-range bikes. Inheriting many of the features of the standard PW series, the SE offers the same 70NM of torque, but it now powers a revised cadence range to offer more assistance at cadences up to 110 rpm, when a motor might previously have run out of steam. The new system has two software versions – black, which offers powerful low-end power delivery for MTB, and green, which offers power designed for easy setting off from lights, for instance, on city bikes.

    Modular Rail System

    For 2018, Haibike have embraced Bosch’s revised range including the sleek ‘InTube’ battery system. Haikbike have, however, taken things a step further with the introduction of their modular rail system. On models which use Bosch InTube batteries towards the top end of the range, the frame of the bike has had a groove cut into it, protected by a rubber cover. Remove this cover in sections and attachments can be added to the bike! Currently, Haibike offer options for a water bottle, an integrated locking system, a frame bag (named the CarryPack), and the ability to add an additional battery, putting capacity up to 1000wh – which Haibike call the RangeExtender.

    EConnect

    Last of the new announcements was regarding Haibike’s eConnect system which links your eBike up to you phone, and was launched on Yamaha 8.0 spec electric bikes last year. For 2018, the system is updated to include new features such as GPS theft control, crash detection, bike locator and route recording, all accessed from your phone via Bluetooth. Besides the new tools, the system is now being offered as a retro fit kit to previous and future models as an aftermarket option for existing Yamaha PW-X and Bosch users. Prices for the retrofit will be around 299 Euros.
