Fitted with excellent cycling branded components, such as Fox, SRAM and Shimano - all delivering top-quality and outstanding performance.
The Bosch Performance Line System:
In Haibikes second generation of XDUROs, they are using the German manufacturer Bosch as a motor partner - in particular their Performance Line (the Sporty eBike System). The Haibike MTBs listed at Wiggle will use Boschs 250W, 36V Cruise class motor (Drive Unit), which tops out at 25km/h and is powered by the 36V, 400W Powerpack - fitted onto the downtube.
The Drive Unit is the core part of this system and therefore of the whole bike itself. The motors dont only have a high and impulsive performance, but they also are highly efficient, reliable and have an intuitive sensory technology. It is designed for sportive, powerful cycling both when accelerating in hilly terrain and when cycling in lowland country. With the highest precision, its performance is combined with that of the eBiker, generating sportive support that dominates every terrain and every gear. From flat to steep - moderate to full power, this system will aid you whatever you ride over.
The Performance Line brings a mass of energy and momentum to the street, to the dirt road, to the pass, to the single trail.
For more information regarding the Bosch Performance Line system, which includes the Drive Unit, Powerpack, HMI Display, Compact Charger, and the Drive Unit frame housing, please download the pdf file.
With this machine you also get a lightweight 6061 aluminium frame which features 180mm of rear travel, Haibike's Sprocket Equalising System, MCI - Multi-Purpose Cable Inlet, 4-Link System, and their Gravity Casting Interface (GCI).
Front end suspension is taken care of thanks to the fitted Fox 36 Talas forks. These provide you with huge 180mm of travel. Great for soaking up those front-end hits as you hurtle down the trails. Due to the nature of these G2 XDURO bikes, they come fitted without a chainset as such. The crank arms are fitted to the Bosch Drive Unit and the chain wrapping around a small 16 tooth chainring (The Hive, Exalite). A secondary smaller chain wheel is also fitted just above the slightly larger one and produces Haibike's unique Sprocket Equalising System (S.E.S.)
The Sprocket Equalising System (S.E.S.):
The new Bosch motor offers, instead of the usual large chainring(s), a very small sprocket (16 tooth) that whirls 2.5 times faster than the crank revolution. This has several big advantages where ground clearance, weight and motor performance are concerned and gives the frame developers more opportunities for further frame enhancements.
The small sprocket is not compatible with a standard frame chassis, as the chain line produces too much pedal kick-back on otherwise normal pivot points. Instead of positioning the pivot points deeper, which would make the bike longer and more unmanageable, Haibike developers have found, with the Haibike Sprocket Equalising System, an easy yet effective way to have a responsive and agile chassis on an ebike.
In this concept a pulley wheel links the chain around the pivot point, which has been placed higher up. Together with the considered position of the pivots on the four bar rear suspension platform, Haibike have come up with a very finely tuned chassis, that in-spite of the small size of the sprocket doesn't have any obvious effect on the chain. This perfect combination and a good, efficient chassis are vital for an ebike.
Shifting and Braking:
With the shifting controlled via the Shimano SLX Rapidfire shifters and Shimano's SLX rear derailleur, you have 10 gears of choice - cassette being a SRAM PG1030 11-36 cluster. Braking is controlled by Shimano's SLX hydraulic disc brakes and provides awesome stopping power in wet, dry and/or muddy conditions. Just what you need when speeding down a trail and coming into a burn or a steeper descent when speed has to be controlled. The pads inturn then clamp around a pair of rotors that include a 200mm at the front and a 180mm at the rear.
Wheelset and the Finishing Kit:
Running over the terrain you steer this beast over are a pair of DT Swiss E1900 Spline 26" wheels. These come fitted with a pair of Schwalbe Hans Dampf folding 26x2.35 tyres provide excellent grip and traction. The traditional 26" wheel size is most convincing in the areas of manoeuvrability and weight. Stability and durability are also improved due to smaller and more narrowly placed spokes. Above all, when it comes to level entry bikes or freeride or downhill riding, this wheel size still stays very popular.
Finally the finishing kit (bars, stem, saddle and seat post) are a mix of Gravity Lite, XLC, and Crank Brothers. The seat post is thanks to Crank Brothers and their remote 31.6mm Kronolog post, which has a Selle San Marco Concor saddle topping it off. The grips are XLC Sport lock-on's with the bars and stem coming from Gravity and their lite range.
A truly awesome machine built for Enduro and/or downhill riding that packs a punch with its componentry and technology.
