Summary

  • A full suspension 29er with mid-drive motor, slim battery and removable display by Yamaha, offers 80 Nm of torque and zero-cadence pedal assist response
  • The RX trim level is top of the line with light weight hardware from Shimano, Fox and RockShox, it offers a 20 speed drivetrain for comfortable cadence at a higher range of speeds
  • The larger wheels carry momentum, span cracks and elevate the frame for excellent cross country riding but suspension travel is limited to 100 mm, the angled top tube lowers stand-over height
  • The motor is smooth and quiet but slower to cut out, the RPM output is a bit limited with becomes noticeable at lower speeds, no shift sensing but torque is measured so ease off to shift

Written Review

Despite the many, many models and trim levels that Haibike is producing for model year 2016 they are only offering the FullNine (full suspension 29er) models with the SDURO Yamaha drive system. I got to check out the RX version with a taller friend who was able to appreciate the larger wheelset and frame size… This model balances performance with value and toutes zero cadence motor operation, impressive 80 Nm torque output and a large removable LCD display with remote button pad and Micro USB charging. There’s no shift sensing built in to the system but it relies on a combination of torque and cadence to activate so my experience has been that easing off the pedals a bit while shifting reduces mashing and will prolong your chain, sprockets and derailleur life.

Aside from the higher torque output, Yamaha has differentiated its drive system by offering a longer, slimmer battery pack design that slides in from the side. The result is tighter frame designs with lower top tubes that are easier to mount and stand over. If you’re someone who appreciates the 29 inch wheel size but but you don’t have long legs, this is a win and perhaps one of the reasons that Haibike isn’t offering an XDURO Bosch powered full suspension 29er this year. Whatever the case, this system performs and depending on the trim level you choose you’ll get 10 or 20 gears. The SL is less expensive ($3,499) but without those extra gear options your climbing ability may be somewhat impacted. For $400 more you can get the RC ($3,899) which has the extra gears and a couple of component upgrades). All models peak out around 20 mph and only offer pedal assist as this is a Class 1 ebike, permissible on the highest number of trails in California and elsewhere.

I love the quick release wheelset, the Micro USB charging port on the remote button pad (located near the left grip), the locking grips, the light weight fork and the fact that there are so many sizes to choose from to get the perfect fit. You really get 12 bikes to choose from with the FullNine model because there are three trim levels in four sizes each… that’s amazing for such a refined product, though they only offer each trim level in one unique color scheme. While I was reviewing this bike at the Electric Bicycle Center in Fullerton, CA a gentleman came in and fell in love with the paint scheme of the highest trim (the RX) and was basing his purchase decision purely on this. Beauty and style aside, the Haibike models have been late to arrive this year and seem to be coming in limited quantities. The most popular sizes include 45 cm and 50 cm and some are already completely sold out, even as they arrive to stores.

My experience with the SDURO Yamaha system has been mixed. On the one hand you have the potential for more gears because the system uses a more standard set of chainrings (compared to Bosch) but then you don’t have shift sensing to help reduce wear so now two derailleurs are taking a hit if you aren’t thoughtful or find yourself in a precarious hard-shift situation. You get more torque and the zero-cadence response but this hasn’t been an obvious huge advantage over Bosch and of course the price is lower for most models in the SDURO line but the range of speed output seems more limited to me. That is, I have to shift up gears to hit higher speeds… I find myself maxing out with my own pedaling well before I’d prefer to shift up in some of the lower gears. I wish they would just extend the RPM range a little bit so I could shift down in preparation for climbs without taking a massive speed hit as the motor drops out. It’s difficult to explain but trying Yamaha and Bosch back to back causes many people to find preference for one vs. the other but it’s hard to dispute the beauty and unique offerings from Haibike as a company and I appreciate their great warranty and network of dealers. This was a fun one to test and it was great to have input from a shop owner and someone larger in terms of height and weight for the video review.

Pros:

  • This is a great model for taller riders like Sam (who is 6’4″) because the wheel diameter is larger and that raises the frame, since you can get it in four frame sizes from 40 cm to 55 cm it should work well for a range of body types
  • The SLX brake levers have adjustable reach (tool free adjustable) so you can tune them as you ride or set them up for longer or shorter fingers… this is nice again for taller riders with potentially longer fingers
  • With Ice-Tech calipers and rotors (Aluminum sandwiched between Steel plates and heat sinks on the rotors) heat is dissipated more quickly to reduce fade during long ascents and for heavier loads (again, larger heavier riders potentially)
  • You get thru-axles front and rear which provide stiffness and strength, I find that they also make it easier to take the wheels off and line them back up when doing maintenance
  • with quick release wheels, seat tube, a removable battery and removable display panel you can significantly reduce weight and size for transporting this ebike
  • I like that the display is removable for moments when you’re riding downhill at higher speeds and might want to protect it in case of a fall, Haibike uses a negative angle stem and low-rise bars to create a space for the display mount and sort of protect it even if you leave it on
  • The Fizik saddle is a nice upgrade for performance but I discovered a little clip-in area beneath where you can mount a light. This could free up your seat tube and saddle rails for an accessory pouch or bottle cage and it would probably stay straighter as well
  • Despite being a full suspension ebike with an angled top tube there appeared to be enough space to mount the frame on a hang style rack which tend to be more common and affordable
  • The display panel is large, easy to read, backlit and removable! I’d probably take it off when doing tricky downhill stuff in case of a crash), I like that the button pad is easy to reach, well sealed and has an integrated Micro USB port for charging accessories
  • The Yamaha mid-drive motor operates fairly quietly in high and mid level gears (when it’s not spinning super fast)
  • Excellent weight distribution, the motor and battery are positioned low and center improving handling, both wheels have quick release for easier transport or trail maintenance and the motor is well protected with a replaceable plastic skidplate (also color matched!)

Cons:

  • The larger 29″ wheels offer good momentum and terrain span but also require more power to get started and produce more drag with a larger contact patch, the suspension offered here is 100 mm vs. some of the 26″ and 27.5″ that go further because the wheels are so large but it’s well suited to cross country riding
  • Limited motor speed range, I found that when switching down to lower gears the motor support dropped out significantly (even in the highest pedal assist mode) because it relies so heavily on torque as an input, this was a bummer when approaching hills at high speed riding off-road
  • No shift sensing or shift detection built into the drive system, this could lead to more mashing, banging and premature wear on the chain, cassette and derailleur
  • Large battery charger with cables that don’t come unplugged so it’s extra long even when the cables are tied up, it also weighs more than some other chargers I’ve seen
  • I found that the battery pack can rattle a bit at times and that you really need to make sure it’s clicked in before riding off, you could turn and remove the key but then push to hear the click of the battery

Extremely sharp looking bike, but at 250W nominal and 20mph speed limited seems kind of wimpy in performance.

I would love to find a more reliable motor/drive than the BBS02. My first BBS02 burned up, but Matt at Empowered was totally awesome about getting me the warranty replacement. Catch, it came detuned to only 18A, so after I added some cooling features I put it back up to 25A. Problem is after a few more months also it made a weird sound so I took it apart and found a trashed o-ring in a very bizarre design that I replaced with blue locker (Matt told me to use red but I didn’t want to make it permanent, shoulda listened), but now it is noisy again, so I have to take it apart again. In short, Bafang is typical Chinese equipment, powerful but cheaply built, low grade materials, badly designed, with a short life and terrible heat problems.

So, I really like the look of this bike and would be interested in a German or Japanese or American mid drive but they are all so wimpy and speed limited I guess I will just keep rebuilding my cheap Chinese BBS02 instead of buying a great looking bike with great suspension and brakes like the FullNine RX.

It sounds like you’ve built some interesting (and powerful) ebikes. I agree that 250 sounds wimpy but the peak is 500 and you get 80 Nm of torque which is quite a lot. The top speed however, is a limiter and that’s meant to keep this as a Class 1 to be allowed on more trails. I can’t think of many big companies selling high-speed ebikes because there’s a liability aspect. Kits are a great way to approach the space and I also like the custom built models from companies like Hi-Power Cycles or Stealth.

I too burned out my BBS02 after only 200 miles. I have since upgraded all of my DIY builds to the BBSHD system with 52 volt batteries and have never had a problem with them. They are worth the extra money compared to the faulty BBSO2 SYSTEMS. You can also hot rod the BBSHD systems safely to 3000watts 72v 20ah with after market kits.

Court, thanks for the comments! I looked at the Hi-Power Cycles and Stealth sites. They definitely have some awesome bikes.

It looks like the mid-drive models at Hi-Power Cycles use the BBS02, which they rate at 750W, 1200W, or 1500W, with increasing speed, range, and watt/hour specs with increasing wattage specs. So I am pretty sure they use battery packs with increasing series cells to get higher voltage on the higher wattage rated bikes. This is all totally legit engineering but that BBS02 is going to get hotter than a pistol if you try to run it flat out continuously at 1500W! But then, who is crazy enough to drive a hotrod floored all the time? :-)

I think you are right about the power being enough on the Haibike for trail riding because it’s surprising how much climbing you can do in low gear on a mid-drive bike. I have to dial my pedal assist down to keep from power flipping off the trail on tight turns and those bikes look pretty much unstoppable on just about any climbout.

You’re a reasonable person and the points about increasing wattage on the BBS02 systems (with increasingly large and powerful batteries) is right on. I believe some systems, possibly the E-RAD ones, do incorporate heat sensors and have some auto shutoff mechanisms but using common sense is always recommended ;)

I guess I like to rationalize the Bosch, Yamaha and other ebike systems because they are legal but yes… they aren’t as powerful or fast as some DIY systems or the BBS02. My dream electric bike is one that’s just 30 lbs but also has the torque of a Bosch mid-drive with shift sensing and a throttle… The lowered weight is my highest interest because I’m a light weight guy and enjoy the feelign of hopping the bike and keeping it with me vs. riding on it.

I have the SDuro fullnine 8.0. I had the econnect installed just a couple of days ago. So far so good. We have a lot of problems with bike theft in STOCKHOLM, Sweden. It's give me ease of mind while locking it outside during lunch and dinner. The bike mapping feature is great. This can be found on several apps on the AppStore. Their are features such as a automated SMS/text alert if I crash, which I hope that I won't have to use. Their are still glitches in the software My route tracking says Theft ride (considering I spent 5000 euro It's abit annoying :)

My body is a bit like yours.
So I bought a 2016 SDURO Fullnine RC.
I ride mainly off-road trails and tracks.
Have clocked up just over 5000k.
I have a friend in similar shape with the earlier model.
His is coming up to 11000k
They handle ok for us old farts.

Could anyone advise on that please?

It's made by FSA. You could get this.

I am fairly certain it would work, if not, CRC is pretty generous with returns.

Thought I would start a thread for all the SDuro owners to share info, pictures, ride reports, issues, mods and whatever else might be SDuro related. If you have an SDuro please post up the model, size, your height/inseam and anything SDuro related.

I'm 5'8" with a 29" or 30" inseam ( I buy 30" leg jeans). My ride is an 48cm SDuro Cross SM and I believe it's the ideal size for me.

I found this detail on the handlebar pretty amusing. I'm wondering if it was something that was written on a design drawing and accidentally got included in the final product:

Since I ride an SDuro SM which doesn't have an odometer I picked up a CatEye Urban+ wireless. One advantage of this is that if I move the speed sensor to the crank from the rear wheel I'll still have an accurate speedo and odo.

I didn't want to use up any of my valuable "Extra Mounting Space" :D

I located the speed sensor right over the front rotor. This is the third mounting location I tried. It seems awfully close to the rotor but the it's stopped from moving down by the bung for the front fender mount. Also if the sensor should come in contact with the spokes the spokes will just knock it out of the way. I had originally mounted the sensor on the back of the fork but if started interfering with the spokes it would be force into the wheel instead of away from it.

Here is my SDuro Cross in it's natural element on the W&OD bike trail. I took it out for about 10 miles on Sunday which isn't particularly far but it is the longest bicycle ride I've taken in the last 10+ years.

Some upcoming must do mods are a bottle cage, kickstand, and grips. Even on my relatively short ride I was really missing not having water with me. If anyone has recommendation on a good bottle mount and kickstand it would be appreciated.

Your turn.

Thanks for starting this thread Hugh. I own a 2016 Sduro Fullnine RC. I purchased it from Motostrano in Redwood City last December when he was running a killer deal. I'm 5-8, my inseam is 30" and the size I have is a 45cm which is considered a 'medium.' My GF owns a 2016 Haibike Trekking RC which she got from Pedego Avila Beach. She traded a film for her bike. We ride almost every single day and live in the SF Bay Area so there's loads of great roads/trails to ride. I like hilly fire roads and trails in addition to running errands locally. I've dongled my bike with an ASA 25.01 dongle. I've also installed a Thule Pack and Pedal rack onto my bike and fabricated water bottle bosses onto the rack. In addition I installed a Supernova M99 Pure and their E3 2 tail light. I love my bike who I named "Sofia" and it's one of the best purchases I've made in a long while.

Not sure what bike you have, but I'd say your feet would be a blur at 30mph.
My feet are going fast enough in top cog at 30k on the SDURO FullNine

I installed the ASA 25.01 dongle on my 2016 Haibike Sduro Fullnine RC. It's not hard at all as it's plug and play. My first installation resulted in all measurements other than ODO and speed to be incorrect. So I contacted the makers of ASA directly, not through ebiketuning.com. They asked me to check what firmware version was hand written on the chip which was "B7." They sent me a new one, again B7 and I still have the same issues with the max speed, it registers a crazy 2038.6 kph or 1267 MPH! LOL. But the speed is fine as is the distance but you must remain in KPH not MPH. Like Christopher85083 I plan on retaining mine because the primary reason I bought it was to remove the 20MPH top assist. The unit keeps assist going as fast as I can peddle. To date my max speed has been 31 MPH - 50 kph on the display. For my statistics I use Runtastic's app on my phone.

I installed a Thule Pack and Pedal rack on the back of my Sduro Fullnine RC and fabricated water bottle bosses using truss clamps.

well I'll be in the { h o c } club soon, just bought one today. so guessing about 10 day for it to get to me . Last year was looking at the rad rover bike online, but I kept thinking i need a full suspension bike, so anyway with sale prices i purchesed SDURO FullNine SL for about 500 more then the rad rover, i'm hoping the full suspension will give me a better ride over bumps then the fat tire bike. so the wait begins. Of course I'll be reading like crazy now about ebikes.

Got a offer for this bike in title, 4500 euro, aparntly a customer changed his mind so they sell it 500 euro cheaper.
http://www.haibike.com/en/DE/bikes/306/2017-sduro-full-nine-8-0?variant=4545020740

Is it worth the extra money ? Otherwise my option will be be hard nine 7.0 to still get the new yamaha pw-x and 500ah battery.

Not sure its worth 1000 euro more !

It's pretty simple.
your dealer can activate this lighting function using the Bosch diagnostic software tool.

Here is a video showing you how to do that. All Haibikes can accept light that run off of the main battery.

For Sduro (Yamaha models) the Supernova M99 Pro and Pure + will NOT work. I just installed a M99 Pure onto my Haibike Sduro Fullnine and it works well. The system for powering the light is 6v on the Sduro line.

I just purchased a SuperNova M99 Pro to install onto my Haibike Fullnine RC with a Yamaha motor. What I discovered is the Sduro line only puts out 6v for the lights. I will be trying one of the M99 Pure units to see if those will work. The M99+ requires a 12v system. I have written to Supernova asking about the compatibility of the M99 Pure with the Sduro line.

xyz the Yamaha is Said to be more quiet, yes. I got the Bosch cx and for me, it's not too loud. But the Yamaha should be more quiet.

let's wait and see how far our bicycles can go, most good very good parks got own trasport to top and this is only issue I can see with MTB, anyway so far and and still far from pro bicycles to downhill it em, will we ever get there to be real instead of getting stuck with cheap and new one and of course electric, like it was not enough hm! I see big things come in small packages and cheap...well done lets keep it one peace!!!

I enjoy your review videos and find them to be extremely informative. However,20-30min long may be a reason why some of your videos do not receive as many views. If there is a way to standardize your reviews without making it monotonous while achieving precision, inclusiveness of vital information, and conciseness, I believe you can shorten the length of your videos. This might be something you want to explore. You aslo speak quite fast and putting out a lot of information while doing so. Although I have been interested in ebikes for many years now, there is still much for me to learn. I do feel information overload when watching your full review videos and it leaves me with a headache and tiredness. This seems to a reoccurring experience. I don't know, maybe it's just me but I hope my perspective gives you some insight into mastering your craft and keep you motivated in doing these reviews. Thank you and keep up the good work! :-)

Thank you for the reply. In one of your videos I saw a shadow allowing me to guess it was a small camera on something like a Beholder gimbal. I should have guesses it was a GoPro. You results are very good.
