The xDuro HardNine RC 2016 model with 100mm travel and the Bosch performance is Haibike's new eBike for all round mountain bike use. Be it hacking across the trails on a Sunday afternoon or alternatively commuting to work, the 29" wheels roll extremely well on the road considering this is a mountain bike at heart. Are you looking for a bike that does it all? Commuting, playing at the weekend? But without those bland commuter looks? This bike ticks all those boxes! Suitable for XC / Mountain Biking / Commuting / Trail Centre riding.
Bike arrived at the said time and within 40 mins I was riding off road up a steep hill climb. The bike is top quality engineering and the finish welds/paintwork brilliant. This bike is the best adrenalin rush I have in a long time, I can now tackle routes that I could not manage before. All I can say is that I wished I had bought one earlier!..
New for 2016 the Haibike xDuro HardNine RC offers an all new chassis, integrating the new higher performance Bosch CX drive unit with added assistance and higher torque outputs.
The new Haibike xDuro HardNine RC 2016 electric bike features the latest RockShox Recon Silver front suspension forks with 100mm of travel. These are air adjustable and can be pre tuned to rider weight. They also come with a remote PopLoc system where the rider can lock the forks off for maximum efficiency and to make sure no energy is lost when climbing or on flatter surfaces.
The gearing on this model is Shimano's SLX 10 Speed drivetrain, these are on rapid fire trigger shifters to ensure smooth and precise gear changes even under pressure.
The SLX mech comes with a clutch system to minimise chain slap and ensures efficient positive gear shifting.
The xDuro HardNine RC 2016 benefits from 29" wheels so they roll really fast and cover more distance on each revolution. The 29" wheels also roll over obstacles easier and allow easy use on the road. These wheels are built using XLC EVO hubs on Rodi alloy double wall rims and spokes, so they are not only light but can take harder impacts without fail.
To grip these to the floor Haibike have carefully selected 29" Schwalbe Racing Ralph, these German tyres offer a decent amount of grip in slippery conditions but also don't offer too much resistance when rolling on flatter terrain and tarmac.
Haibike have opted for the Tektro hydraulic disc brakes to get you stopping quickly and safely, these offer minimum maintenance and fuss and are mounted on larger rotors to give more braking performance.
The rear end has been shortened for maximum torque and traction, while the front end is still a comfortable angle meaning you get a bike that does not feel too long and unbalanced.
The frames are also lighter and feature Alloy hydroformed tubing for ultimate strength / rigidity.
The new Haibike HardNine RC 2016 eBike also features the latest Bosch Performance CX crank drive motor, so you can be sure it's fitted with the latest kit and setup for optimum performance.
The new 250w CX system outputs 75Nm of torque & peaks at 500w! It certainly packs a punch, it will also offer up to 300% assistance on turbo mode.
Featuring 4 levels of assistance & remember you can always turn the power off and ride it as a normal bike!
This machine rolls just the same as a normal cycle. In fact the quality in the design, geometry & build make it a true performer! The Haibike HardNine RC features the brand new Bosch 500Wh PowerPack Battery so it hosts the most range possible on a Bosch powered electric bike.
