What is Haibike FLYON?
Haibike have been secretly plugging away in their design and research lab in Schweinfurt, Germany to bring, for the first time ever, an exclusive new electric bike product for 2020.
Offering more torque (50% more), assistance (200% more) & range (26% more) than ever before… It’s called FLYON!
Head of Haibike engineering, Ingo Beutner, says:-
The eBike as we know it was completely rethought in order to launch the next generation of ePerformance. With FLYON we have been able to create a system according to our understanding and concepts. This system enables eBike riding as it should feel in our opinion: self-evidently and powerful. All components seamlessly integrate into the overall design, which convinces with a high level of integration.
Highlights of the 2020 Haibike FLYON eBike system
FLYON Motor System
The motor is designed by a company called TQ. This company designs & manufactures direct-current motors for the control of modern satellites.
TQ has used this technology to create the HPR 120S crank drive eBike motor. The motor provides up to 120Nm of torque and assistance levels up to 820%.
Thanks to the integrated freewheel, the bicycle can be pedalled just like a regular bike without a motor. When the drive is disengaged, no internal components are moving.
It’s super-efficient with ultra-high torque and ability, specifically designed to meet the demands of eBike riders.
FLYON Battery System
Haibike have designed all the components from the ground up using all their eBike experience to date. The battery uses a whopping 630Wh high-density cell to deliver a huge range.
The optional 10Ah quick charger charges this high capacity 630Wh battery to 80% within just 60 minutes! It can be charged both on or off the bike as the battery slides out the frame.
FLYON Display Controls
The system offers 5 levels of assist:- ECO, LOW, MID, HIGH & XTREME. The new colour TFT display offers all the rider credentials in a neat, compact and removable display.
Whilst the Haibike remote (located to the left of the bars) is quick and simple to navigate the modes. Five lovely bright colours illuminate to show the assistance mode selected alongside the same colours on the display. Easy to see at a quick glance while riding!
FLYON Carbon Frameset
All of this built into a brand new 2020 CARBON frameset by Haibike. This not only brings the weight down but allows complete integration of the system. It also allows Haibike to do special things like integrating lights into the rear swingarm. Not forgetting a front light to match too.
All of the cables run through the 2020 carbon frame using specialist channels, so everything looks really neat.
They’ve managed to squeeze in their Haibike ‘MRS’ (Modular Rail System) so all the Haibike accessories (Bottle, Lock, Tool Bag etc) fit onto the frame too.
In true Haibike fashion, the motor is integrated with a skid plate incorporated too, this adds protection & offers complete integration.
Lastly Haibike finish off this new frameset with a stealth dropper seat post, built-in, so again no cables are exposed. They have built in the speed sensor within the rear swingarm and instead of a magnet on the spokes, the sensor is built into the rear disc.
Highlights of the 2020 Haibike eConnect system
Following the successful first edition of the eConnect system, a new upgraded version - eConnect 2.0 has been released. This comes built-in FREE-OF-CHARGE on all 2020 Haibike FLYON electric bikes. Offering a new modern design, a user-friendly interface and extended features for 2020.
In a nutshell, Haibike eConnect tracks the bike’s movements works as a GPS / Anit-Theft device and tracks routes you take on your electric bike.
It has 'smart features' like text a family member with your location if the rider has a fall or alert you to your bike's movements if you have it parked up somewhere.
For 2019 eConnect gets an improved route recording and a brand new user interface. It’s available in more countries, more languages and eBike dealers can access bike information too.
You can add more than one bike, meaning all of the families bikes can be controlled by the touch of a button. There’s a new app too. All current users can upgrade to the eConnect V2.0 for free!

Where can I read reviews of the new Haibike FLYON's?
As with any new product, reviews are hard to come by until the product is actually out on the market. Fortunately, there are stacks of reviews on the Haibike FLYON eBikes as they released pre-production models to the media ahead of the curve.
Let's not forget that Haibike actually won the prestigious Design & Innovation Awards this year too. The judges said:-
Haibike’s new FLYON series is probably the biggest developmental leap since the invention of the eMTB, once again proving the brand’s pioneering spirit! At the heart of the futuristic-looking carbon frame is the FLYON HPR120S motor from TQ Systems, which is the most powerful pedelec motor currently available, offering a full 120 Nm of torque. While the motor perfectly integrated into the overall concept, the bike is full of individual solutions regarding design and technology. All features are controlled by a specially developed remote and a large colour display provides the rider with all the relevant information. Haibike has succeeded in developing an eMTB that is much more than the sum of its parts.
In addition to the NDURO 10.0 review listed above, Rob (From eMTB Forums) actually did a follow-up review on the AllMtn 8.0 too around some amazing trails in Itlay. Watch it below:
