Haibike are one of our favourite brands, and a firm customer favourite too. They make e-bikes which are tough as nails and with a Yamaha motor giving the bike its oomph, you really do feel like you can go anywhere. The trekking range has been the best-selling of this brand at Energise E-bikes in the last 12 months because they are a perfect match for the type of riding that most of our customers do. If you plan to ride on tracks in the countryside and want power PLUS comfort, this is definitely worth a test-ride.
You may find yourself laughing the first time you power up a hill on this e-bike because the acceleration you get from standstill with a Yamaha motor is so exciting. Hill starts are satisfyingly easy, and getting away at traffic lights is something you can do confidently rather than with any trepidation. In truth, you will need the instant power of the Yamaha motor with a bike like this. Trekking e-bikes are built robustly and with all the equipment already fitted. If you tried to do a hill start without the power, you would find it tough.
Our Favourite Tyres
Super Moto-X. We've lost count of the number of times we've fitted these tyres as an aftersale customisation on other bikes. The smooth, road-friendly tread is combined with the off-road friendly width of the tyre. It really is built for the kind of rural ride that so many of us love to do. What would otherwise be a nice touring bike becomes an 'exploring' bike. With most people spending more time in the saddle once they upgrade to an e-bike, the wide tyres also act as 'air suspension' for extra comfort over those extra miles.
Summary: Perfectly matched to the type of terrain you'll find on dedicated cycle-routes, here's a bike that will help you discover all those beauty spots around the country you'd previously only read about.
As with all our e-bikes, you can test-ride this at your nearest showroom. Contact us to book your slot. Size guide: This model comes in a few sizes and frame shapes, so contact us to find out what's in store right now.
