Haibike Lauch a Fullcarbon Racing E-BikeDecember 5, 2017
Though Haibike has been teasing the US market with photos of its XDURO Fullcarbon and a promised release this spring, it’s only just become available for pre-order from an actual shop (Motostrano), so we imagine that it’s only a matter of weeks before the first few examples make their way over to our fair shores. The bike, with a US MSRP of £9,500, appears to be the Fullcarbon RX trim level, which comes with Mavic wheels and shocks from RockShox and Fox (front and rear, respectively).
The Bosch-powered e-bike sports a rare combination of a carbon fibre frame paired with a full suspension. Trail riders with £9,500 burning a hole in their pockets ought to get ready to drop some serious cash, because this bike promises to be quite the off-road performer, especially considering the almost universal acclaim that is showered upon Haibike offroad models by influential e-bike reviewer Court Rye.
There’s no word yet on the final weight that we can expect for the Fullcarbon, but since the aluminium-framed full suspension Haibike XDURO FS RX weighs 48lbs, we’d put good money on the Fullcarbon tipping the scales somewhere just above 40lbs.
