YOU KNOW THE benefits of an electric bike by now: a little extra help on the hills, a little time saved on the commute… For Haibike, what it’s really all about is upgrading adventure.
Boost your two-wheel adventures with an electric bike from Haibike, the home of ePerformance.
Founded in 1995, Haibike has been developing bikes for different riders and different needs for over 25 years.
Behind their products is German engineering precision, paired with tireless innovation. It’s the innovative nature at their core that led to opening the doors to a completely new category of bike: ePerformance.
The year 2010 marked the beginning of the Haibike success story and started the eMTB boom. They were the first and, for a long time, the only ones to believe in the potential of performance eBikes; that still holds strong today, more so than ever.
Cycling isn’t just about performance, however. Cycling is all about freedom, courage, passion and the joy of discovery. Haibike wants to drive people to explore and expand their boundaries, uphill and downhill. That’s why, year after year, they’re still driven by the daily challenge, to make the unthinkable achievable, to constantly innovate and be that one step ahead.
Innovation doesn’t just mean forming new trends, it means creating smart solutions that provide real benefits to real riders. That’s why they integrate batteries into their frames, combining modern design with smart technology. That’s why they develop concepts that make mounting accessories on an eMTB easier than ever before. That’s why they combine downhill fun with uphill flow. That’s why Haibike is ePerformance.
Two guys who know all about upgrading adventure are Luke and Sam from MTBVanLife. But, what is MTBVanLife?
MTBVanLife is simply two friends with a joint venture: to travel with mountain bikes in a purpose-built camper. With both rocking the Haibike AllMtn 6 electric mountain bike, who better to talk to about amplifying an adventure with an eMTB?
Here’s what the guys had to say:
“eMTBs enable us to go further for longer, and tackle longer distances over more challenging terrain.”
Cycling is all about freedom, passion and the joy of discovery. Whether that freedom comes from an all-day epic across the Cairngorms or a laidback, leisure ride into town to discover those local hidden gems, it’s all about driving people to explore and expand their boundaries, uphill and downhill.
“It’s not cheating! Pedal assist is just enough to have fun, but it’s still exercise. You’ll still get tired on those long rides – but you’ll just be smiling while you do it.”
So eBikes aren’t a way out of exercise, rather a way into a heart-racing good time. They share all of the benefits traditional bikes bring, but with a focus on having just as much fun for longer.
And ePerformance bikes put the emphasis on enjoyment with a little extra push, so there’s less stopping, even less waiting, and no need to get off when those steep hills creep up on you.
“We love being able to see and chat to people of all age groups, who are now getting outdoors and to trails that may previously have been inaccessible.”
Cycling can keep us healthy, both mentally and physically – eBikes remove many of the physical barriers associated with traditional cycling. It doesn’t matter how old you are, or how fit and healthy you are; eBikes are for everyone. From full-suspension eMTBs, designed to take on the toughest terrain, to hybrids for laidback leisure riding.
