Haibike xDuro SL 29 2014 Electric Bike Overview

By Martin Brown on November 20, 2013

The 2014 Haibike xDuro SL 29 is in stock now with us @ e-bikeshop. We are the UK’s largest Haibike dealer so normally have all the models in stock in various sizes. The SL29 electric bike is the entry level hard tail mountain bike ideal for light off road but also brilliant as a commuter / trekking / hybrid bike due to its versatility.

Haibike xDuro SL 29 2014 eBike HeadsetThe xDuro Haibike SL 29 2014 ebike is a good all round Hardtail mountain bike. The bike has a good all round geometry and is agile enough for multi use. Being a hard tail bike it tends to roll quickly on the flat and climb well without soaking up any energy into a rear shock. The Rock Shox XC32 forks are only 100mm travel but are oil dampened and air adjustable so the bike owner can easily adjust the fork to their own weight preference and riding style. They also have a remote lock-out which is really useful when it comes to the road, flatter riding and climbing. Its based on a 29″ wheel which tends to roll over terrain a little easier than the smaller 26″ wheel. If you are after a more aggressive off-roader I would suggest one of our full suspension models which you can view here (Haibike Full Suspension models).

Haibike xDuro SL 29 2014 eBike BrakesThe xDuro 29’er features  Tektro HDC300 hydraulic disc brakes on larger 180mm rotors so it has ample stopping power. Full Shimano gear system which are Deore grade components for smooth shifting even under load. The rear derailier incorporates the clutch design mechanism for good chain tension and snappy gear changes, more on that can be read on my previous blog post here.

The wheels consist of quality Rodi CC double wall alloy rims, built on Sram disc hubs and finished off with DT Swiss premium spokes. So they are solid enough for all round off road abuse. To grip these to the terrain Haibike have opted for 29″ Schwalbe Racing Ralph performance tyres.

Haibike xDuro SL 29 2014 eBike Bosch MotorThe Haibike incorporates the Bosch crank drive eBike system. Haibike is the only manufacturer to invert the motor 180 degrees up out the way so it is built in within the frame work, this means its tucked up out the way. I have written a  whole new post about this here. The SL29 is the younger brother to the RC 29 and therefore features slightly lower grade components and the smaller 300Wh power pack from Bosch which gives up to a 90 mile range on Eco mode.
