description

Details

The XDURO Nduro 8.5 offers 180mm of plush travel controlled by a RockShox Yari RC fork and RockShox Vivid Air R2C rear shock. This suspension spec is combined with sporty frame geometry, SRAM NX 11 speed drivetrain and Magura MT5 hydraulic brakes for a bike capable of handling the toughest terrain. The cherry on top is the Bosch Performance CX motor and 500Wh battery allowing for miles and miles of fun out on the trails.

Technology

    Made of shock-resistant plastic, the light component protects effectively from scratches or motor damage.
    The Haibike SkidPlate

    Especially eMTBs often suffer from impacts or stone chipping which damage the low-situated motor severely. Therefore, we were the first manufacturer to introduce the SkidPlate back in 2013, a protection element which protects the bottom side of the motor.

    Bottom side protection

    Here the concept of a 'sacrifice part' applies: Similar to a helmet, the SkidPlate absorbs impact forces by deformation or destruction which would otherwise damage the significantly more expensive motor.

    A perfect, sensitive chassis, free of any drive unit influence, made by Haibike.
    The Haibike SES System
    Especially eMTBs often suffer from impacts or stone chipping which damage the low-situated motor severly. Therefore, we were the first manufacturer to introduce the SkidPlate back in 2012, a protection element which protects the bottom side of the motor.

    Bosch motors pose two challenges for engineers at once when developing an efficient chassis: its construction size and its relatively small sprocket. Usually, the chainstay bearing has to be installed close to the point of contact between chain and sprocket. Due to the small size, this would result in the bearing running directly through the motor which is, of course, impossible. Therefore, we created a simple but efficient concept: the Haibike Sprocket Equalizing System (S.E.S).


    For a perfect chassis

    First of all, we move the chainstay bearing up. Thus, we achieve an optimized wheel lifting effect (the bike moves away from the obstacle) on the one hand, and on the other a short wheelbase (as the bearing point is not located between motor and rear wheel).


    A pulley prevents influences on the drive unit

    In order to avoid the inevitable influence of the chassis on the chain during suspension, we axially place the pulley directly on the chainstay. Additionally, we integrated a chain guiding on the pulley. Together with the chain guiding on the Haibike sprocket, a chain drop is almost impossible.

    The heart of the Haibike alu frame: light, highly robust and complex manufacturing with a special casting technique known from the motorcycle industry.
    The Haibike Gravity Casting Interface

    It is the heart of the frame: the motor interface. Here, many crucial functions such as motor mount, rocker and damper mount, as well as the interlocking battery and lower connection. A robust frame is based on a sturdy interface.

    Casting technique known from the motorcycle industry

    Therefore, since 2010, we use a casting technique which is known from the motorcycle industry, the so-called Gravity-Casting technique. In this process, negative forms made of compressed sand are placed in big forms. These sand forms are then filled with an alloy of alu and zinc and afterwards rotate in precisely calculated axes. Due to gravity, the alloy spreads evenly and results in an even casting thickness.



    Light, robust and precise

    Thanks to this procedure, extremely robust components can be produced which are then exposed to an extensive X-ray control in order to achieve the casting seal of approval. A subsequent, computer-controlled postprocessing ensures stable precision.

    Small, compact and well protected: the new Bosch Purion. Despite the small size of the remote, the display provides all of the important features and information.
    Bosch Purion Display
    The new compact display is a combination of remote control and display. Positioned on the left of the handlebars, the display provides key information through a small, easy to read display. Its compactness and location make it ideal for extreme ePerformance bikes whose riders seek a display that is reduced to the essentials and well-protected.

    All the main functions can be directly controlled: support level (Off, Eco, Tour, eMTB/Sport, Turbo), switching on and off the eBike light, walk-assist, the current speed, the day trip and the total mileage of the bike, and the range, or how far the current charge level of the battery will last in mileage. A backlight in the display makes all information easy to read even in the dark.

    Optimized for ePerformance bikes, the Bosch Performance CX motor was developed with a focus on creating a more sport oriented unit.
    Bosch Performance CX Drive Unit
    The Bosch Performance CX has been specially optimized for sporty use. The motor delivers a constant maximum torque of up to 75 Nm up even to a high speed range.

    The motor offers an impressive maximum torque of 75 Nm. The “Direct Flow” technique also guarantees powerful support in the lower cadence levels. Trail Control offers a dynamic power management system, that allows the rider to choose the optimum support level (50-300%) for the terrain they are riding, their riding style, and the distance they are looking to cover. “Shift detection” protects your chain by cutting off the torque from the motor during shifting for smooth gear changes.
