With 100mm of travel, this hardtail electric bike for 2016 is the entry level model within the Haibike sDuro range. The HardLife SL 2016 eBike is built on more entry level components without compromising quality. It is designed for the eMTB'er who wishes to take on some of the local trails. It is suitable for XC / Trail use. Now with refinements for ladies with specific geometry!
As a keen e-bike rider I have been waiting a long time for a ladies mountain e-bike. I feel this bike was built for me, the handle bars are in the perfect position, the seat is reasonably comfortable. Wow FINALLY a ladies e-bike that looks and feels awesome.
To complement the sDuro HardSeven SL, new for 2016 we see a new ladies specific variant - The sDuro HardLife SL!
Not sure the gents will agree on the name, the Germans decided on this one, so we follow suit.
Ladies do you have a HardLife? Well it's about to get easier with this new sDuro electric mountain bike.
Forget the hills, this tough part of the ride is eased up somewhat with new eAssitance from the Yamaha system.
This eMTB features the the new revolutionary 27.5" (650B) wheel size which takes all the benefits of both 26" & 29" and squeezes them into the ultimate hardtail.
Like the HardSeven SL, the HardLife see's a full Shimano Deore 10 speed drivetrain, this is a good upgrade over the 9 speed and offers more versatility with it's 11-36t ratios. The 10 speed gearing brings it in line with the current market and means that you have a electric mountain bike with a full range both up and down hill.
The 2016 sDuro HardLife SL features a Suntour 100mm front suspension fork with dual lockout so the riders energy can be conserved whilst climbing or on less bumpy terrain. A must for riders looking to cover mixed terrain.
The 27.5" wheels are made up of XLC disc hubs which are quick release front and rear, these are laced onto Rodi disc specific alloy double wall rims and Sapim double butted spokes. A strong but lightweight wheelset, perfect for your everyday biker!
On the 2016 sDuro HardLife SL we see the Tektro hydraulic disc brakes front and rear with larger 180mm rotors for increased stopping power.
Although the entry level model sDuro, Haibike have managed to squeeze a decent set of Schwalbe Rapid Rob tyres into the equation.
These tyres offer decent off road grip but don't pick up too much resistance on tarmac or hard pack terrain.
Although we call this model the entry level bike within the Haibike sDuro range, it's actually pretty well equipped.
The new Haibike sDuro HardLife SL is powered by the latest Yamaha electric bike system. Haibike has partnered with Yamaha to bring a brand new line of sDuro eBikes, this powerful 250w motor offers up to 280% assistance and peaks at 80Nm of torque.
The power curve comes in early and is responsive as soon as you touch the pedals. The new assistance is set in 4 levels for 2016 - 'Eco+', 'Eco', 'Standard' & 'High'. This allows the user to fine tune the amount of assistance required during the ride offering complete flexibility and control.
The 2016 Yamaha system uses a 400Wh battery, now with an assisted range of up to 90 miles due to the new Eco+ assistance mode. The Haibike sDuro Hard Life SL 2016 eBike is offered with the largest 400Wh Yamaha battery to give a full day's ride time.
The Yamaha eBike battery can be quickly recharged in a matter of hours and the new LCD display shows not just how much capacity the battery holds but also the predicted range in assisted miles. The charger now boasts an even smaller shell for 2016.
