Its exciting times for us at e-bikeshop (the UK's largest Haibike Dealer). We will soon be in possession of the brand new 2014 Haibike xDuro AMT RX 27.5 Gen 2 models arriving in Jan 2014. This new electric bike in Haibike's xDuro range is the middle ground ebike sitting between the AMT RX Pro and the AMT 26. Built for all mountain/enduro/free ride/bike park use. Here is a little bit about the new model arriving shortly.. As I mentioned above, the new 2014 AMT RX model sits between the current AMT 26 and the AMT Pro. Like the later this model features the new 650b (27.5") wheel size. Its a sturdy build that sits band on the £4K mark so its a little more affordable than the higher models.
With 150 mm travel and the Bosch performance motor, the xDuro AMT RX is the younger brother to the AMT PRO. It still features the same frame design and geometry but built with more mid range components. We are already taking deposits on this model & all the Gen 2 models in fact. So if you are interested please give us a call on the number below to discuss the options. These new models are very sought after and only built in limited numbers. Bosch have already announced short supply of their eBike motors. The new Haibike xDuro RX , Gen 2 2014 model has some all new features. the frame geometry is totally re-designed. It features 150mm travel front and rear and benefits from the new 650B / 27.5" wheel size. This new wheel is designed with the benefits of the bigger 29" in wheel in mind, so it rolls fast and flows over bumps easier, but uses the 26" wheel characteristics for good manoeuvrability through tight single track areas. Its perfect for the serious mountain biker from full on all mountain trials to local bike parks. The spec of this bike is mid-top end kit. You have DT Swiss Rims, Shimano SLX/ XT drive train and, of course, completely newly developed suspension of the Haibike Sprocket Equalizing System (SES). The bike also features a Fox's 32 Talas forks with adjustable travel from 120mm to 150mm on the fly and Fox Kashima coated CTD rear shock. Shimano Deore's trail brakes on big uprated rotors supply decent stopping power in any condition. Couple this with Haibike's newly developed frame geometry and you have an eBike you can really put through its paces. This is a good bike with decent components at a mid range price! Read More about the S.E.S System in my blog.
The new Haibike Gen 2 bikes also feature the latest Bosch Performance crank drive motor, so you can be sure its fitted with the latest kit and set up for optimum performance. Haibike are the only manufacturer to mount the motor with the swing arm pivot bolt in a raised position ensuring the rear end is much shorter than any other eMTB. This ensures a shorter wheelbase for the ultimate control and manoeuvrability off road. They fix the chain line with their new S.E.S (Sprocket Equalizing System). Which raises the chain off the front sprocket up to the same level as the swing arm pivot point so the chain is not affected by the rear end moving up and down over bumps. To find out more about this please read some of our Bosch E-Bike articles in our blog. This eBike is 'Bosch Tuning Dongle' compatible. So you can now have no speed limits; creating an un-stoppable machine!
