What we like

  • fascinating concept
  • Technically mature

What we do not like

  • Extremely heavy weight
  • Handling partly cumbersome

“For God’s sake, what is it?” Anyone with the exciting in every respect Haibike Xduro Nduro 26 roars Pro through the woods, should be prepared for curious questions. No wonder combines this two-wheeled “monster” but everything brings outsiders like Biker boil: Bosch engine, 180 mm of travel front / rear and a – Pardon – optical image.

And above all are the questions: Do you need that? Is this allowed? But: do not hesitate to sit. Lastly, but in marketing German, that an e-bikemust “learn” not to prejudge. And we say it as it is: the first pedal rotation endorphins pogo through blood! Instant is noticeable but not unpleasant, the motor a, provides literally tailwind pushes horse and rider on rising gravel roads afloat on the magical 25 km / h – mainly in the power-hungry turbo mode.

Clear, must be pedaling nevertheless, it is even quite strenuous, but just simply “inspiring”. Even steepest trail stitches latching the force Grumpy only way up! If the trail but flat or slightly downhill, 25 km / h exceeded rapidly: The thrust is made, the Haibike Xduro Nduro Pro 26 mutated to the steamer. 22.3 kilos want then pedaling with pure muscle power, down around the corner, are drawn over stages.

So the Bosch engine works

Here, the name of motor-assisted bikes has prevailed, but is false by definition laws. speed e-bike without driver intervention means motorradartigem “throttle” and usually require registration, moped driving license and insurance certificate.

Unlike a pedelec as Haibike. This supports the bikers only in Pedalierphase up to a speed of 25 km / h. The driver does not occur or it is faster, the engine is silent. Among the currently most built electric motors is one of the Bosch-performance drive, which “pushes” the (shark) bikers.

Here five modes are available, in the maximum level of support Turbo engine with 275% and an input torque of up to 60 Nm, the battery lasts then only for approximately 50 km. A three-sensor system measures 1,000 times per second, as vigorously pedaling, the driver, and the energy delivered fits accordingly in order to ensure a smooth thrust. To drive include the controller, the battery and wiring – what weight can continue to rise into the air. In sum loose seven kilos come together.
