Written Review

Downhill bicycle riders enjoy “bombing” mountainous terrain… Weaving through single track, through the trees and across rock fields where no other bikes could survive. They require smaller light-weight wheels that are nimble with large knobby tires and long travel suspension to soak up the bumps. They need to be reinforced with tapered head tubes and larger hydraulic disc brakes that won’t fade with extended use. They also usually require a chairlift or van… to really focus on downhill riding and avoid the long strenuous climb that can sap rider energy and trigger knee pain. With the advent of electric bikes, freeriding (where the rider goes up and down themselves, reaching otherwise less-accessible terrain) has completely changed. The Haibike XDURO Nduro Pro offers ~30 miles in turbo-assisted climbing range per charge (and more than 60 miles on flat terrain). It’s a leading product with top of the line “pro level” components and at $9,100 it is one of the most expensive ebikes I’ve ever tested. Cyclists who know their stuff will appreciate the light weight Fox air suspension, Thompson Downhill carbon handle bar, Mavic wheelset and Kind Shox remote-drop seat post. I’m not much of a downhill rider myself but I do know electric bikes and the drive system offered here is one of the best available right now in the USA. It is extremely responsive (fast to switch on and off), surprisingly powerful (outputting 275% of matched rider power in Turbo mode) and very well balanced (motor and battery are low and center on the frame). With four frame sizes to choose from and a solid two year warranty (five years for the frame itself) it’s easy to see why this bike won second place in the European MountainBike magazine in 2014. That is, it was recognized as the second best mountain bike around, human powered bikes included.

The centerdrive system on the Haibike XDURO Nduro Pro consists of a 350 watt geared centerdrive motor developed by Bosch. This is one of the best motors around in my opinion and is quite capable of climbing even the steepest off-road terrain while still achieving impressive range. The adjustable fork improves climbing ability on this bike because it can actually be shortened on the fly, reducing bob and wheelies. The motor is activated with a smart sensor control unit that measures your rear wheel speed, pedal cadence and pedal torque ~1,000 times per second! Instead of turning one of the bicycle wheels directly, as a hub motor would, the Bosch Centerdrive spins a small sprocket that pulls the chain and leverages gears in the rear cassette for improved climbing ability or top speed. Note that the smaller front sprocket does not require the rider to pedal faster, it’s actually geared to rotate ~2 times for every pedal stroke. It doesn’t introduce significant drag to the system and can be used as a normal bicycle in non electric mode, you could even take the battery pack off to reduce weight if you wanted to. The true benefit to the smaller ring is that it allows the motor to operate at more efficient RPM’s and deliver more effective torque. One possible downside to mid-drive motors like this is that they can increase the strain and wear on your chain and cassette but the Bosch system minimizes this because it has shift detection built in. It automatically lets up when it senses that you’re shifting gears and this reduces mashing. I’ve tested other Haibikes more thoroughly than the Nduro and had the chance to take them on trails in Colorado. What I found was that I used the motor to climb but shut it off on the way down and even on some flat sections. If you left the motor on constantly but rode in the lowest “Eco” mode, the range and performance are very impressive… like 60+ miles impressive. One big question people often ask is “how loud is the motor” and what I’ve found is that noise output depends on which mode you’re using and which gear you’re in. It’s the loudest in Turbo mode while pedaling in a low gear because it’s spinning faster. When riding on trails I often power down when passing people to be polite but what I’ve been told by friends is that even when left on the sound of my wheel on the dirt and rocks actually muffles the sound of the motor in most cases. Hopefully the video review above helps to give you some idea but note that the frame-mounted shots tend to exaggerate the sound as it gets passed through the frame and into the camera microphone.

Powering the motor here is a Bosch Powerpack 400 battery (that actually delivers 396 watt hours of juice). It’s a beautiful looking battery that’s easy to charge on or off the bike in ~3.5 hours and the locking core (made by ABUS) is sturdy with each key being securely unique (it’s a routed in-cut key like many cars use). The battery pack itself has a set of five LEDs built in so you can quickly determine the charge level whether it’s on or off the ebike. I recommend charging the pack after at least one bar has been used or before storing for long periods of time. It’s wise to top it off ever three months if you haven’t used it and storing it in an environment that doesn’t get too hot or cold will also help it last longer. In general, keep it between 20% and 80% capacity to avoid straining the cells. The batteries inside the pack are 18650 size and contain a Lithium Manganese chemistry that’s valued for being light weight and durable. These are the same cells used in electric cars like the Tesla Roadster or Model S and of similar high quality. While the battery pack is not fully integrated into the downtube, it’s less expensive to replace because the same pack is used across the entire Haibike line (and other systems running Bosch for 2014/2015). Unfortunately, the pack and rear swing arm suspension point do take up the space where a water bottle cage might otherwise mount and that means you’ll probably want a CamelBak or similar hydration system. The battery should last for 1,000+ charge cycles if cared for but if you do need a replacement (or decide to get a second for extended range) Currie Technologies offers them for ~$600. For maintenance concerns or support note that Haibike is supported through Currie Technologies and Bosch is supported through Magura in the US.

The control interface on the Nduro Pro electric bike is the same as all other Bosch systems for this generation. It shows speed, distance traveled, battery capacity remaining, timer and range estimation for each of the four assist levels. It’s really neat to see (on the fly) just how far the range estimator thinks you can go because it empowers you to plan accordingly and pop the battery off for a quick charge if needed. You can usually get the pack to ~80% capacity in just an hour and a half. In addition to the removable backlit LCD screen (which has four buttons surrounding it including power, reset, information and lights) there is also an independent button pad that lets you go up or down in assist modes. I like the tactile clicking feedback it produces as you navigate because once you get used to it, you really don’t have to take your eyes off the trail to navigate and control the bike. The Intuvia display is one of my favorites on any electric bike because it can be swiveled forward and back to reduce glare and is completely removable for parking in public spaces or simply reducing wear and weight. It even has a micro USB port on the right side which could be useful for powering some small portable electronic devices. If you’re someone who does a lot of trail riding at night, I’ve seen shops that offer to integrate lights to run off the main battery pack and the display has a switch setup to turn them on or off (which also turns on/off the backlight on the display itself, regardless of integrated bike lights).

It’s easy to fantasize about this electric bike but given the price point, not everyone will be able to justify the expense. For those who want the same high performance drive system from Bosch, beautiful Haibike frame design with hydroformed tubes and gravity casting interface and are willing to go with lower-specced components… consider the Haibike XDURO Ndoro RX for downhill or the Haibike XDURO FS RX 27.5 for cross country. They’re both excellent full suspension offerings and while none of them offer throttle mode, that’s almost preferable for trail riding where you don’t want to compromise your grip or over complicate the cockpit area. As shown in the video above, this bike operates smoothly, won’t dig up the trail and stays relatively quiet under power. The motor is strong and amazingly responsive so it really feels like an extension of you rather than a powered machine. Growing up in Colorado I would occasionally visit ski areas in the summer months and take the gondola up with a rental bike to bomb down. It was a blast, truly a rush of adrenaline and an experience that would have been difficult to replicate without spending hours hiking up. With the advent of ebikes like the Nduro Pro and RX, just about any mountain becomes accessible and you don’t have to spend the drive time or chairlift money to make it happen. There were always hard core riders who would actually pedal up and then bomb trails but with some knee injuries I’ve experienced snowboarding and surfing, that just isn’t an option and frankly, I’d rather focus on the fun parts with a bike like this.

Pros:

  • Excellent long travel air suspension by Fox that is light weight and rugged with great adjustability (climb, trail, descend on rear shock CTD)
  • High and low speed compression adjustment on the fork (right dial) as well as a length adjuster on the left to reduce wheelies when climbing
  • Proprietary Sprocket Equalizing System (SES) reduces chain kickback, keeps the chain from slapping the rear stay when riding on rough terrain and reduces drops, the chain itself has teeth that alternate from narrow to wide which helps reduce slipping
  • The hydraulic disc brake rotors are enormous with 200 mm in the front and 180 in the rear for improved leverage, stiffer thru-axle design keeps brakes and wheel aligned under pressure
  • Seat post dropper with remote activation is perfect for on the fly body position adjustment, drop the seat when bombing downhill sections so you can use your legs as shock absorbers then raise it instantly for climbing and spinning on flats
  • Quick release on front and rear wheel makes the bike easier to break down when transporting it in your car and comes in handy for trail maintenance, also makes the bike less intimidating to work on
  • Excellent range thanks to the efficient centerdrive motor that leverages the rear cassette and high performance Lithium-ion 396 watt hour battery
  • Great torque output, this bike can climb very well in Turbo mode when you’re pedaling with a lower gear
  • Battery pack locks to frame for security using a quality ABUS core, it can be charged on or off the frame for convenience or to reduce weight if you’d like to ride this as a normal bicycle, pack also includes an LED charge level indicator
  • Intuitive display panel that’s large, easy to read and removable – the stand alone button pad is easy to reach without taking your hand off the left grip and “clicks” when pressed for tactile feedback (you don’t have to look down when riding)
  • Stiff cranks, peformance wheelset, decent aluminum alloy platform pedals, rigid frame for good power transfer when riding, tapered head tube for strength and a carbon fiber handle bar for reduced vibration and weight
  • Impressive 11 speed cassette with SRAM XX1 components offering a comfortable cadence at many speeds, 10-42 teeth on cassette sprockets
  • Great customer support and warranty from Currie Technologies in the US (part of Accell Group which owns Haibike)
  • Four frame sizes offer better fit for a wider range of riders (40cm, 45cm, 50cm, 55cm)
  • Shift detection helps reduce wear on the chain and sprockets, the bike experiences less mashing and is easier to ride as a result
  • Beautiful paint job, brushed aluminum with matte yellow and white accents, all cables and wires are run through the frame which reduces the potential for snags when riding or hauling this bike

Cons:

  • The most expensive Haibike in the line, you get pro-level components but pay a big price compared with the Nduro RX or FS RX 27.5 models
  • The battery pack takes up the space where a water bottle cage might otherwise mount and there isn’t one on the seat tube due to the rear suspension setup, consider and aftermarket accessory for the saddle rails or grab a CamelBak
  • No throttle mode, this bike only offers pedal assist (like all Bosch powered systems) but will get a better range than if it did, top speed is limited to 20 mph
  • The brake levers do not include a motor inhibitor but the drive system is more responsive than others I’ve tested so it hasn’t been an issue

Hey, love your reviews and videos, but the frame sizing is not correct, Nduro RX/Pro has one frame height (43 cm). The differece in size, is only the top tube length.

Interesting, thanks for the heads up Dan… I double checked the Haibike manual for the Nduro Pro and did see that the seat tube is listed as 17.7″ for every size. After reaching out to Currie I found that you are correct, the seat tube stays the same and only the top tube length changes :)

At this time, unfortunately, I am not sure! I have never been to Brazil but my guess is that there are very few representatives there at this time. You may be able to order online and have one shipped :)

Neste momento , infelizmente, eu não tenho certeza ! Eu nunca foram para o Brasil, mas meu palpite é que há muito poucos representantes lá neste momento. Você pode ser capaz de encomendar online e ter um enviado :)

Hi, I'm an avid mountain biker, I ride cross country and to a lesser extent mild downhill runs. I put in usually around 100 miles + per week. I ride a Yeti MTB. I'm getting older, knees falling apart and a few other issues, etc so I've decided to invest in an Ebike to ride part time. I've been looking at ebike reviews and unfortunately I cannot find any haibike reviews from actual mountain bikers. I've found one or two, but it's usually someone jumping jumps or riding up a gravel road or paved road. Nobody ever really discusses the frame geometry, how they handle etc? Or if they're good on rocky rooty trails etc. I don't ride on dirt paths, I ride on actual singletrack roots and rocks and switchbacks etc too.

I have ordered a Haibike Sduro Nduro RX. I only found a few reviews and videos for this bike, none of which told me much. This has a long travel fork (180mm) which would normally be excessive for regular cross country riding but it can be adjusted down to 150mm which isn't too bad...especially since this has a motor to haul it around? Or I'm hoping this will be the case anyway?

Is anyone here a regular experienced mountain biker? Does anyone here have a Haibike mountain bike? Do they handle well? I would have gone with the specialized since it's a known quantity, specialized FSR is a pretty decent bike, and the turbo lev just added a motor...but the Haibike was a much better value, but I know nothing about the bike/handling/etc.

Thank you.

Hey, I ride a 2017 haibike Xduro all mountain 7 that has 3" tires (boost) and 27.5 wheels and it rips the single track. I raced for many years and still avidly ride 2000 miles a year on single track in the N cali sierras Tahoe and grass valley areas. I keep an extra 500 battery on board and use it regularly when riding over 20 miles. The tires gobble up obstacles (10 to 15 lb. pressure) like they are not there and my confidence is 30% higher i will make it through a tough spot.
I committed and rode centuries for decades and even raced pro mountain bike in the 80s.
I am 70 and last year developed knee arthritis. I just a month ago finished a procedure called Regenexx. The short version is an MD takes bone marrow blood from your hip and spins it down to get the stem cells and injects it into your knees.
In a month my knees are 80% better and expect the regeneration of my soft tissue to continue for another year. I could not even walk before i was on crutches. This is so cool!! its expensive $7K and no insurance will pay for it. A friend of mine had it done to his hips a year ago and he is way better. I highly recommend it. More info if you ask.

I ride technical trails on a regular trail bike (Giant Trance X 0 29er). I love the bike. I would also like an e-bike with the most trail capability.

My only experience is that I converted an old hard-tail to an e-bike with a 1500 watt pedelec hub-motor and 1000 wh battery behind the seat, and it was fun on the street, but it was terrible on trails. Unridable really, due to the weight and balance of the battery and motor. Also, the direct drive would not be good for off-road climbing. Battey and motor should be mid-bike and as low as possible, and battery should be about a 500 wh. I sold off the parts.

So I have decided a few things that I want in my next e-bike.

1. Must have a mid-drive - like Shimano, Yamaha, Bosche, or Brose.

2. Must have stealth look with well integrated motor and battery.

3. Must have torque-sensing and a pedal feeling be as transparent as possible without awkward surging.

4. 250, 350, 500, or 750 watts are all ok. I don't mind at all if it is 250 as that will be lighter, save battery power, and I am happy to pedal.

5. 15 or 28 mph are both ok. I would prefer 28, but not if the bike is worse in other ways.

6. Prefer compatibility with 3.0 inch tires (650B+).

These are the bikes I have found so far that look like what I want, but I have not ridden any of them. Which are the most trail-capable and have the most natural pedal feeling?

Giant Full-E+
Haibike XDuro NDuro Pro $5,800
Lapierre Overvolt AM 900+ £6400
Moustache Samedi 27 Trail Limited £7600
Nicolai ION EBOXX
Rotwild R.X+ FS €6,999
Scott E-Genius 700 Plus Tuned $5,400
Scott E-Spark 700 Plus TUNED £6,099
Specialized Turbo Levo FSR (Four trim levels - $4500 to $9500)

A real Mtn biker with real Mtn bike tastes. The demands of the trail are real and forth telling. A cheap trail or mtn bike will not perform or last. Same thing applies to MTN ebikes. The extra weight demands higher end and rugged components. For 2-3 lbs, sacrificing weight for strength is my motto. Go for lighter/small battery and stay 350 or less watts when riding to support a good hour ride, but less weight.

Eddie recommend KTM, but he is in Britain.

no tested torque, top speed, time to speed, or real world range. Time to charge. Recommended maintenance. How well does it coast. Problems reported by owners and dealers.
No basics, so, finding all these reviews totally missing and useless, I had to go to my dealer and ride 12 different bikes before deciding on my kalkhoff. Also he's not talking to dealers about reliability and support, which is how I decided on mine vs Stromer, Haibike, ESV, Reise and Muller. I had to spend two afternoons at my dealer really learning about OBJECTIVE PERFORMANCE because these videos are really useless. Especially mounting a camera on the chain stay and filming a ride. What on earth does that show or prove.

Do you think the CX motor is louder than the performance motor (as seen in the video)?

I have been looking for a bike like this! I was planning on the stealth bomber, but the speed is just too dangerous. I desire to remain in the legal rules of my province's regulations for motor assisted bikes. This bike is perfect and only has a 20mph top speed with the motor. I won't kill myself, and cops will leave me alone. Thank you for the video.

ive heard that on a normal bike you can actually ride faster than the ebikes because the ebikes are heavy and the motors arent really powerful enough is this true ?.

Mitchell Davis

The battery on these bike usually cut out at 20 miles per hour. It is hard to go faster than 20 MPH with most ebikse on a straightaway because the bikes are heavy with the battery. A very fit person on a carbon bike will be able to go faster than 20 on a straightaway. Ascending steep hills is where these ebikes really shine.

Are those pedals serious on a 9000$ freeride bike? :D

ElectricBikeReview.com

+Barnabás Szakál I think so, this bike was tested at the Accell North America / Currie Technologies headquarters in Southern California. There have been moments where a model had the wrong pedals or grips or saddle but usually they try to get it right for reviews :) also, if your comment was more about quality, I'd say that on a bike like this many people replace stock with clips and instead of trying to guess which style people would want they just went with a generic platform. Which pedals would you recommend for something like this? This bike is super fancy compared to what I usually ride and my knowledge on downhill is admittedly limited.

Your reviews are very helpful and they offer many information , what would make your videos even better I believe would be if you had a camera mount for your head or you chest to show some POV footage when you ride the bike

Yes I found it interesting because with the frame mounted shots I could see the suspension how it was absorbing the bumps

+12Achilleas Thanks for the feedback, I've got a couple of new accessories that might help with future videos. Did you like the frame mounted shots that I did on this bike?

It is expensive but I think that it is good to spend money and keep the product for longer as long as it is reasonable value for money. Keeping things for longer makes sense environmentally I think. If you keep a bike for a long time and don't keep replacing it then there will have been less manufacturing in total.

Wow that bike looks amazing! I would be scared to ride a $9100 bike but it must be beautiful to ride. Its like they have thought about every possible thing they can do to make this the most perfect electric mountain bike and they've not only done that they have done it 100 times better!
