Haibike AllMtn 3 Hands-on Review (2022). Haibike electric bike

Haibike AllMtn 3 Hands-on Review (2022)

The Haibike AllMtn 3 is an amazing machine! It has the new Bosch gen4 Performance Line CX motor (85nm) and the Bosch 625wh in-tube battery. This drive system, combined with Haibike’s mullet set-up (27.5×2.8 rear tire, 29×2.5 front tire) makes for one monster mountain bike!

Quickly Ride to a Section.

The Haibike AllMtn 3 – At A Glance

Price – 5800 Weight – large, 57lbs Sizes – small, medium, large, extra large Class 1 mid-drive

Range Test

I weigh 220lbs and can get 30-60 miles on this ebike in real-world testing. Depending on which assist mode I’m in, how many hills there are, and how windy it is. Lighter riders will get more range.

Of course, the bike can be ridden if the battery runs out, just without any motor assistance.

Who’s it For?

This ebike is for anyone looking to fly up steep mountains and be able to fly right back down them with ease!

If you want an Emtb (electric mountain bike) that is german engineered and built to last, then this bike is for you.

Maybe you just want to have one of the most well-made ebikes around at a price that is very reasonable for what you are getting.

This ebike is a tank and will eat up whatever terrain you point it at, then be able to do it all again the next day!

A Brief Rundown of The Haibike AllMtn 3

Pros

  • Bosch motor system
  • 625wh battery
  • Mullet style wheel set-up
  • RockShox suspension
  • Shimano brakes

Some Backstory

I have the 2019 Haibike AllMtn 6.0 with 9800 miles on it and out of all the bikes I’ve had over the decades, this one has by far been the best!

Haibike just makes a fantastic ebike and they have been making electric mountain bikes at the top of their game for years.

Now that their Emtb’s have the new Bosch motor and bigger battery I almost wanted to upgrade mine, but my ebike still works flawlessly, and I’ve made some custom additions that I love.

If you have the chance to test ride a Haibike then I highly recommend you do so, even if you are not ready to buy one yet!

Form Function

When you buy an electric bike or any bike for that matter, what you are really buying is the ride. You could have the prettiest bike in the world and unless it rides well, it’s just a piece of artwork.

This thing is one good-looking bike! The new Bosch 625wh battery is thinner and longer than the older 500wh one that I have and with this battery hidden in the downtube, it’s getting harder than ever to even tell that this is an ebike.

Another change I noticed is that the top tube has been thinned out a bit so that your knees are less likely to rub it while you are charging along.

The Bosch gen4 motors are slightly smaller and more powerful than the gen3’s are and weigh a little less too.

Another thing that is unique to Haibike is their “Modular Rail System”. This is a slim cutout on the top of the downtube that allows you to attach a lock, water bottle, storage compartment, or even a second 500wh battery! (for a total of 1125 watt-hours!)

Nuts Bolts

Here’s a breakdown of what comes stock on the bike –

The Motor, Battery, and Display

These are the parts you are really looking for when buying an electric bike.

The Haibike AllMtn 3 is a Bosch bike which is, in my opinion, the best there is!

Motor

Bosch Performance Line CX gen4, mid-drive, 250watt, 85nm max torque, up to 340% max assist

Battery

Bosch 625wh, in-tube, comes with the Bosch standard charger that will charge from 0 to 100% in about 5 hours.

Display

Bosch Purion (speed, trip, odometer, range, assist level, battery level)

The Drive Train

If you are looking for a pedal-assist mid-drive ebike then the drive train is very important. This is the gearing and shifting part of the bike. You will want lower gearing if you plan to ride up steep hills.

Shifter

Sram SX Eagle – 12 speed

Rear Derailleur

Sram SX Eagle – 12 speed

Cassette

11-50 tooth – 12 speed

Now the tooth count on the cassette is where you can tell how low the gearing is, the higher the tooth count on the biggest cog, the lower the gear is.

With an 11-50 tooth rear cassette and the Bosch Performance Line CX motor, there will be almost nothing you can’t climb with this bike.

While the gearing range is amazing, I’m not a huge fan of the Sram SX series drive train. This is the entry-level Sram Eagle 12 speed drive train and would have hoped for a bit better at this price. Oh well, you can always upgrade it later.

The Brakes

The brakes on an ebike can often get overlooked, but with the added weight of an ebike and the ability to cruise at speeds around 20mph, it is good to know you have brakes that stop you fast if necessary.

The Haibike AllMtn 3 comes with Shimano MT401 hydraulic brakes that have 4 piston calipers and 203mm rotors front and rear. (the Haibike website says it’s a 180mm rear but it is a 203mm rear)

haibike, allmtn, hands-on, review, 2022

These brakes are going to stop even the biggest riders on the steepest descents. No need to worry about stopping power!

The Fork

The Fork is the RockShox Yari, air spring, with 160mm of travel. On the fly compression adjust and adjustable rebound.

The Yari is a beast of a fork and will take years of abuse. Just get your yearly seals and fluid changes and you’ll be good to go.

Wheels

The Haibike AllMtn 3 has a unique wheel set up known as the “Mullet”, this is a 29” front wheel and 27.5” rear wheel.

This gives you better roll-over from the big 29er in the front and a wider, slightly smaller rear wheel for better traction and torque.

These wheels have 30mm tubeless-ready Alexrims, 32 spoke, eyeleted, laced to Shimano thru-axle hubs. 15×110 boost front and 12×148 boost rear.

Tires

The front tire is the Maxxis Minion DHF (downhill front) 29×2.5” tubeless-ready tire.

The rear tire is the Maxxis Minion DHR II (downhill rear) 27.5×2.8” tubeless-ready tire.

These tires are a very aggressive tread meant for chewing up muddy terrain and griping onto just about anything.

If you won’t be riding in really muddy conditions you may want to trim these down to Maxxis Rekons or Ardents to save some rotational weight and decrease your rolling resistance. I leave the choice up to you.

Before you buy –

This ebike can take a rear rack if choose the right one! If you are interested, check out this article – “Can You Put A Rear Rack on a Full-Suspension Mountain Bike?”

At the End of the Day

I love my Haibike AllMtn ebike! If you are looking for one of the best electric mountain bikes around then don’t miss this one.

Haibike will also soon be releasing the AllMtn 5 in the US and I will do a review of that one as soon as we get it.

I have installed full fenders and a rear rack on mine to make it the ultimate on and off-road commuter, mountain biking machine.

If you have a local Haibike dealer and you’re interested in this bike, don’t wait. As with all ebike this year, supply will be very limited, but these are hitting store right now in March!

Keep on riding and exploring the world!

Haibike NDURO 6 review

Haibike was one of the first bike manufacturers to bring a ‘proper’ electric mountain bike to market, way back in 2010, and one of the key brands behind the e-MTB boom.

The brand designs and engineers a huge range of electric bikes in Germany, including the NDURO, aimed at hard-hitting enduro and all-mountain (in both directions) riding. This latest model shows how far electric mountain bikes have come in the past decade.

In place of the Bosch or Shimano electric bike motors found on most e-MTBs, the NDURO 6 uses Yamaha’s latest drive unit, the 2023 PW-X3. With four assistance modes and 85Nm of torque, this has a claimed peak power output of more than 500W, so can deliver up to 360 per cent assistance. Not only is it more potent than the previous-generation Yamaha motor, but it’s 20 per cent smaller and 10 per cent lighter. It’s controlled via Yamaha’s Side Switch remote, which has a big 1.7in display, but is nicely low-profile, easy to read and sits close to the bar. The motor is accommodated tidily underneath a long, fully integrated down-tube battery, which is removable via a key/lock system for off-the-bike charging. This is the Japanese corporation’s largest ebike power supply yet, with a 720Wh capacity. Haibike has had to make the aluminium frame seriously fat to fit everything inside. While it still sports the brand’s signature angular lines, the top tube hump and frame kinks have been toned down a little compared to older models. Updates for 2023 include modern longer/slacker geometry, with a 63.5-degree head angle, 480mm reach (large) and lengthy wheelbase. Combined with 180mm of four-bar linkage rear travel and a matching fork, this should keep the rider feeling assured while dealing with the serious impacts associated with riding a beefy ebike downhill fast.

Haibike NDURO 6 spec details

The NDURO 6’s relatively affordable (for an ebike) price isn’t reflected only in the motor, but also the parts spec. Up-front is a burly RockShox Domain R, not the brand’s top-end ZEB fork, and the shock is their most basic Deluxe Select model. TRP’s Slate four-piston brakes aren’t quite as powerful as the Shimano or SRAM equivalent, even when combined with the superb bite of the Schwalbe Big Betty rear tyre. Both tyres have the ‘in-between’ Super Trail casing, rather than a thicker/tougher carcass more suitable for a long-travel ebike. The mostly SRAM SX Eagle drivetrain loses a little gearing range at both ends and feels a little sloppier compared to the brand’s higher-end kit. Urgency is further reduced by the fat, heavy, double-wall WTB rims on own-brand hubs, although the wheels at least proved hard to dent or damage.

Haibike NDURO 6 ride impressions

Due to the 27.5kg weight, it’s practically impossible to get the wheels off the ground without the aid of a lip or feature to launch off. Mick Kirkman / Our Media

Haibike has nailed the NDURO’s sizing, seated climbing position and geometry, and the alloy chassis is super-stiff. The bottom bracket is a tad higher than on most rivals, which gives good ground clearance when smashing down rough, straight-line bridleways and high-speed, wide-open descents, especially with the NDURO’s deep suspension egging you on, by making you feel safe and planted.

Unfortunately, if you’re more interested in flowing down singletrack, linking turns, playing about on off-piste tracks or trying to solve the most fun and technical climbing puzzles, the massive weight of the bike – over 27.5kg – detracts from the riding experience. Mixed wheel-size rigs get touted as nimbler and more manoeuvrable, but the NDURO is one of the hardest bikes I’ve ever ridden to change direction on quickly. It’s so stable at speed and glued to the ground that it’s hard to do anything but arc smoothly through turns, and also practically impossible to manual or get the wheels off the ground without the aid of a lip or feature to launch off. This isn’t a machine that encourages messing about.

With its long 460mm chainstays and pokey motor, you might expect the NDURO to be a beast up the climbs, but, again, its weight comes into play. While it’s got some juice to it, the Yamaha drive unit has its work cut out and feels as though it has less sheer grunt on peak-power uphill efforts than Bosch and Specialized’s motors, which give smoother, less cadence-sensitive assistance. I had intermittent issues with the buttons freezing, too, which meant having to turn the bike off and back on to change modes. The latest motor also shares its predecessor’s annoying habit of ‘revving’ and trembling forwards under power when you’re sat chatting to mates and resting on the leading pedal – something other brand’s drive units don’t do. One bonus of the super-solid chassis is zero flex or deflection from your line, even when chucking it down proper DH tracks or rocky descents. This gives an overall riding sensation more like a motorbike without an engine, which some folk may like. I prefer more reactive handling, though.

Haibike NDURO 6 bottom line

This is the first bike I’ve tested where you have to remove the front wheel to weigh it on (25kg max) workshop scales, but it’s unclear why it’s quite so heavy.

Yes, it has a big battery and the fat-legged Domain fork clocks in at over 2.5kg, but many of the other parts are ebike-typical and the Super Trail tyres are lighter than most. For comparison, the cheapest Vitus E-Sommet has only 10mm less travel and is a massive 3kg lighter.

The huge weight brings with it massive solidity, but the NDURO rides like a bit of a streamroller and lacks agility.

Haibike XDURO FS RX Video, Pictures, Specs

9 Комментарии и мнения владельцев

The Haibike Xduro FS RX electric mountain bike is a solid off road machine with the new 350 watt Bosch Performance mid drive system, 120 mm of front and rear suspension (RockShox Fox), and a health mix of Shimano SLX components.

In this first part of the review there are a BUNCH of detailed pictures and specifications to get you familiar with the FS RX.

The Haibike XDURO FS RX is priced at 5,200 USD at the time of this review.

Part 2 of the Haibike XDURO FS RX review will give you info on ride characteristics, results from the range test, pros, cons, and overall thoughts on this e-bike.

Alright, let’s get into the details of the Haibike XDURO FS RX electric mountain bike!

Checkout the Video Pictures of the Haibike XDURO FS RX

The Haibike frames utilize hydroformed 6061 aluminium tubes to create a bike that is engineered to provide a good fit/geometry and reinforcement in the high stress areas.

Internal frame cable routing is found all over the FS RX. Note the wild shapes of the hydroformed aluminum tubing.

For the US market, the Haibike’s come equipped with a Bosch mid drive 350 watt motor (60 Nm of torque) compared to the 250 watt motors found on their European bikes. Mid drive motors power through the drivetrain of the bike and that enables you to climb the steepest hills by shifting to lower gears. The Bosch system is a very advanced system that uses a torque sensor, cadence sensor (crank speed), and wheel speed sensor that takes measurements 1,000 times per second. With that kind of measurements it can sense when you are going to shift the gears and reduce the motor power to make the shifting smoother.

The FS RX comes equipped with the Bosch Powerpack 400 lithium battery. This is a 36V 11ah (400 watt hour) lithium pack that weighs a surprisingly light 5.5 pounds!

On the left side of the bike there is a key lock at the top of pack.

On the lower left of the battery pack is the on/off button, level of charge indicator, and the charging port for on the bike charging.

The Bosch charger is a little larger than a laptop battery charger and it weighs less than 2 pounds. It can charge the 400 watt hour battery pack to 50% in 1.5 hours and 100% in 3.5 hours.

Removal of the battery pack is easily accomplished by unlocking it with the supplied key.

It is nice to be able to charge and store the battery in your house or work place; especially when it is too hot or cold outside.

The Bosch Powerpack 400 is surprisingly small! This is it next to my iPhone 5.

The Haibike FS RX uses a 4 bar linkage rear suspension system with 120 mm (4.75 in.) of travel. Note how the rear shock is mounted in the seat tube area; wild! The chain pulley is used to route the chain around the suspension design.

Here is the back of the rear suspension linkage and 27.5″ x 2.25″ Schwalbe Nobby Nic rear tire.

The Fox CTD LV shock has 3 different suspension adjustments that can be changed with the blue lever: climbing mode, trail mode, and descend mode. The air pressure can be changed with the valve stem on the left to fit the riding style and rider weight.

This is the Shimano SLX rear derailleur with clutch system to prevent chain slap.

Haibike spec’ed the Shimano M615 hydraulic disc brakes on the RS FX. The rear brake uses a 180mm rotor.

A view of the Haibike FS RX cockpit!

The Bosch Intuvia display is front and center on the handlebar. There are 4 levels of pedal assist (Eco, Tour, Sport, and Turbo) in addition to a no assist option that are adjusted on the left side of the handlebar. The display offers information like: odometer, trip distance, max speed, average speed, trip time, clock, and estimated range! There is a USB port on the side to charge your phone or MP3 player on the go. It is easy to remove the display to take with you when you lock up the bike.

On the left side of the handlebar is the Bosch control pad where you can adjust the pedal assist level (/- buttons) and the information button will cycle through info on the display: odometer, trip distance, max speed, average speed, trip time, clock, and estimated range. Also, you will see the front Shimano hydraulic disc brake lever and lock on grip.

The front view of the left side of the handlebar. There is a button on the front of the Bosch control pad that is a walk assist button for providing a little assist while walking the bike uphill (steps, etc.).

On the right side you will find the RockShox suspension fork lockout button, the Shimano SLX 10 speed shifter and rear hydraulic disc brake lever, and the lock-on grip.

The front side of the right handlebar.

The FS RX comes equipped with the Rock Shox Reba R with 120mm travel and a lockout option. This fork has a 15mm thru axle for added front wheel stability.

The suspension fork lockout is controlled by the button on the right side of the handlebar. Locking out the fork is handy if you are riding on relatively smooth surfaces and want to maximize your out of the saddle pedaling efficiency.

The air spring of the suspension fork can be adjusted by removing the cap and using a shock pump.

Here is a close up of the front 27.5″ x 2.25″ Schwalbe Nobby Nic tire on the FS RX. It has some good tread for off road riding!

The front Shimano M615 hydraulic disc brake uses a 203 mm rotor for solid stopping power.

The Haibike saddle is narrow and has a racing/performance style to it.

Is Haibike a Good E-bike Brand to Buy? Brand Models Review

Although Haibike is part of the Netherland-based bike company, Accel Group N.V., it’s German to the core, having been founded in Schweinfurt in 1995. Before that, much like plenty of subsidiaries, its models used to be offered under the Winora brand. However, over time, the parent company decided that it’s better to have a dedicated mountain biking brand.

To view the full e-bike catalog of the brand, you need to either go to European versions of its main sites, with the UK and Germany being the best options. The choices are still limited in the US market, after all.

Naturally, expect most of Haibike’s models to be largely eMTBs, road, and hybrid models. It offers one model for children via its Hard line or the HardFour if we’re going to pinpoint a specific model. Aptly, you don’t need to look further than its eMTB offerings to know what allows the brand to carve its own niche in the e-bike industry.

Haibike AllMtn eMTB Model Line

The AllMtn line freely overlaps with other eMTB lines like the XDURO. If we’re going to opt for the best representative model, the latest AllMtn 7 makes for a great candidate. Labeled by some critics as “the sportiest Haibike yet”, the model does well to showcase what this Haibike eMTB line is all about.

It integrates mostly Yamaha’s primary components, namely its motor that can give a commanding 80 Nm torque output. This allows the e-bike to perform at its best when negotiating hilly climbs. The battery from the same brand offers as much as 600Wh. It has an excellent travel suspension and comfortable handling that makes it amenable to beginners and experts alike.

We like how Haibike chose to hide the charger port inside the actual battery cover, so you won’t have to worry about it getting wet or being mucked up. All in all, it’s an e-bike that knows what to expect in the roughest terrain and any kind of hardcore trail riding. As for secondary components, it uses the formidable Shimano XT brakes and MAXXIS Minion DHF/DHR tires, which are perfect fits in eMTBs, to say the least.

Overall, we like how this e-bike line brings out Haibike’s expertise in the mountain biking field. The AllMtn 7 is one clear proof of this. It’s versatile and superior without going overboard with specs and additional components to the point that it only ends up ballooning the price.

We invite you to take a closer look at the Haibike AllMtn eMTB model line here.

Haibike XDURO eMTB Model Line

With such top-of-the-line offerings like the Adventr 5, Nduro 10, and AllMtn 10, the XDURO line demonstrates what eMTBs can achieve with their power pushed to the limit. These models offer a whopping 120 Nm of torque, which pretty much ensures steady, impressive assist and acceleration as should be expected from high-end eMTBs.

These models also share the same 630Wh battery. We like how it manages to provide a generous riding range because of how well it works with other features like the Eco-Plus mode integrated into the Nduro 10, for example. The same excellent range can be expected from the AllMtn 10.

Flyon allows the XDURO line to achieve these outstanding features. Another notable strength of the models in this line is their generally comfortable stability. The bright headlights are also worth commending, especially if you prefer night riding. Also, if you want a model that’s quieter, go for the AllMtn 10 instead of the Nduro 10.

Both are close to the same in performance, with premium parts that are well worth the money like the Smart LCD display of the AllMtn 10. Also, who doesn’t mind getting a 5-year warranty on the frame and a 2-year one on the battery?

We invite you to take a closer look at the Haibike XDURO eMTB model line here.

Haibike SDURO Electric Bike Model Line

Most of the trekking e-bikes in the SDURO line are lighter options compared to their XDURO counterparts. While it labels itself as an eMTB, to us, it feels more like a hybrid e-bike. Sure it also has vaguely similar power assist options like Eco, Eco Plus, and High found in most Haibike eMTBs, but its Yamaha PW-system motor is apparently less specced compared to the other premium eMTBs in the brand’s catalog.

Even so, that doesn’t eliminate the fact that it still delivers adequate power. You certainly won’t feel like you’re missing out on power once you set the assist on high, especially if you want to conquer steeper than normal hills.

Overall, the SDURO models are still versatile in that they can still handle moderate off-roading, but can perform just as superbly when commuting and light trail riding. It’s highly recommended as a commuter e-bike for anyone who lives in hilly cities or wants a more budget-friendly, all-around casual eMTB that’s still decently specced.

We invite you to take a closer look at the Haibike SDURO electric bike model line here.

Haibike Full eMTB Model Line

The Full line represents what Haibike has to offer in the full suspension category. There’s not much difference between the FullNine and FullSeven series other than the fact that the former sports a larger overall build. The FullSeven makes a good choice for smaller riders or women in general.

Both the FullSeven 9 and FullNine 9 use a notable Bosch Performance CX Gen4 motor that can give as much as 85 Nm torque. Thanks to the power, it accelerates faster and can achieve the 15.5mph (25 km/h) top speed easier than its other counterparts, unlike the equally heavy SDURO Trekking 9.

Shimano derailleurs are always reliable and the SLX M7100 used in these models are no exception. The Range Extender is noteworthy since it leaves room for anyone to easily extend the riding range. Though not hydraulic, the Magura MT5 4-piston disc brakes still impart excellent control on most kinds of rough terrain. The Schwalbe super trail tires only seal this further.

Incidentally, this is the only line that offers a fat version through the FullFatSix, which uses Schwalbe jumbo 4” tires. Specs-wise, it’s slightly below the others in the line with the same price tag. It’s similar in more ways than one but entirely different as well. All in all, you can’t beat the combination of versatility, stability, and comfort it provides through its mixture of a full-suspension frame and fat tires.

We like the overall stability and comfort imparted by the full-suspension designs. Definitely a recommended line for those who want more safety, comfort, and affordability, while still having close to high-end eMTB specs Haibike models are known for.

We invite you to take a closer look at the Haibike Full eMTB model line here.

Haibike Dwnhll eMTB Model Line

The sole Dwnhll model is special in that it’s the only e-bike in Haibike’s entire catalog to claim that it’s a pure “downhill bike”. Adequately powered and accessorized as other Haibike mid-range models, it’s remarkable in that it addresses a key issue in the brand’s eMBT models. If you aren’t already aware of it, while most of its models make easy work of tricky ascents, they typically struggle in their downhill performances.

Whether Haibike intended the Dwnhll model to remedy this or not, the jury remains out. Nonetheless, it’s on par with the superb specs of the FullFatSix. Both incorporate the same 80-Nm Yamaha motor. That’s great since you can expect the same assist potential when climbing harder inclines, too. And it’s a couple of bucks cheaper than the said fat model.

The Maxxis Assegai tires incorporated are known for their grippy, powerful traction, making them a perfect addition. Full suspension is an obvious plus, while the mid-range 4-piston Magura brakes are another notable safety-oriented component.

With all things considered, it’s an eMTB that departs from the usual norm that downhill e-bikes are supposed to be highly specialized models that are only meant to follow a downward direction. Nonetheless, it’s categorized as downhill for a reason, and it’s definitely well-designed for that purpose.

We invite you to take a closer look at the Haibike Dwnhll eMTB model line here.

Haibike Hard eMTB Model Line

Any model with the Hard label only really means the opposite of full suspension: hardtails. Much like its Full counterpart, most of its models are either Seven or Nine, which only pertains to the wheel sizes of 27.5” and 29” found in each e-bike. The HardNine works more like a road e-bike, while the latter is more about tackling the usual tricky trails associated with mountain biking.

Naturally, many of the models in this line are far more inexpensive. Their specs are slightly lower, with the HardNine 8 packing a 70-Nm Yamaha motor instead. The ever-convenient Yamaha InTube or frame-integrated battery is a bit of a steal, though, since it has the same 630Wh capacity as other high-end models, guaranteeing more range for thousands of dollars less.

Indeed, the price-to-specs ratio is what makes most Hard models a crowd-pleaser. That is, of course, if you prefer hardtails over the brand’s excellent full-suspension options.

The option for kids, the HardFour, pulls no punches with its specs as it’s only a slightly downgraded version of the HardNine 8, so any kid that gets this as an introductory model to e-biking (for it’s arguably still designed with that in mind) should consider himself or herself extremely fortunate.

We invite you to take a closer look at the Haibike Hard eMTB model line here.

Haibike Trekking/Trekking Cross Electric Bike Model Line

Almost any bike that falls under the Trekking category showcases versatility in riding through urban cityscapes and light to moderate off-roading. Although the latest Trekking 10 model has been criticized by riders as appearing un-Haibike (due to its unique frame design), it’s actually quite an imposing e-bike, more so because of the purpose, it’s designed for.

It’s being marketed as a commuter model yet it uses the same 85-Nm Bosch Gen4 Performance motor as the other eMTBs. It throws in the range extender as well, which means you can enjoy longer rides thanks to the maximum 1,125 Wh capacity. It’s definitely for the speed-hungry rider, and the fact that it can handle most road and cross-country rides well only adds to its appeal.

Trekking models normally come complete with bright headlights, a rear rack, a front luggage rack, and fenders. The only thing missing are fenders, but for the mid-range price and outstanding specs, these certainly stand out.

Haibike SEET Bike Model Line (non electric)

The SEET series is what completes the circle, so to speak, for Haibike’s entire catalog since its models represent the entry-level modes that the brand has to offer. Don’t expect its models to have the same dazzling specs as the other lines featured.

Consider these models as nothing more than beginner-oriented options. Most are hardtail and can truly give you a feel of what e-biking feels like without having to grapple with a torque, high-powered motor yet. Their main value is rooted primarily in that facet, plus the fact that they don’t require you to shell out a lot of money just to try out e-biking.

What Do Most Riders Think of Haibike?

Given its remarkable history, Haibike belongs among the top household names in the e-bike industry. Incidentally, it didn’t gain traction in the US until around 2014, and even now, it’s a brand that’s still arguably more widely recognized in Europe than in the former. Up to this point, though, its solid reputation is already unquestionable.

We have the brand’s experience and knowledge of mountain bikes to thank for the terrific designs. Many people love the variety in its eMTB options alone. Each model line stands out with its own nuances. There’s almost always an option that will suit a trail rider’s taste, whether he goes all the way with aggressive riding, is more of a mellow or casual off-road rider, or a balance of both.

The way Haibike understands these different needs and trail riding through the high-end to mid-range components it integrates and its almost uniform, tried-and-tested frame designs are what make them beloved.

What Countries Does Haibike Ship To?

Haibike has a lot of satellite branches in many countries already, especially Europe. Besides the US, Haibike delivers to the UK, Germany, Spain, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland, and Austria. Most of these countries tend to cater only to their citizens and don’t offer international shipping.
