Haibike partners with LoneStar to form a top Line-up in Salado
We are ePerformance
With the introduction of the Haibike XDURO FS in 2010, we opened the doors to a completely new bike sport: ePerformance. This marked the beginning of the Haibike success story and started the eMTB boom. We were the first, and for a long time the only ones, to believe in the potential of sporty eBikes, and we still do today—more than ever.
Designed & Engineered in Germany
We have been passionately developing bikes in Germany since 1995 and can draw upon almost 100 years of experience from our parent company WinoraGroup. We are incredibly lucky to be able to combine a significant enterprise with the dynamics and courage of a start-up.
ePerformance combines physical performance with electric support. Ride an ePerformance bike and you will feel the power, balance, and freedom our high-end power assisted bicycles provide. Man and machine form a natural and healthy balance.
Neither Bicycle nor Motorcycle
Despite their kinship: ePerformance bikes are not bicycles with assistance nor are they motorcycles with pedals. They are a completely new class: one with its own characteristics, its own products, and its own culture.
We Love Bicycles
Haibike is passionate about bikes and a leading engineer of non-motorized sportive bikes. ePerformance is not directed against cycling and does not want to replace it (nor could it).
The world needs more people on bikes. Bikes can make and keep us healthy – mentally as well as physically. eBikes provide that opportunity: by removing many of the barriers to entry associated with traditional cycling and enticing more people to get involved. It doesn’t matter how old you are, or how fit or healthy you are: eBikes are for everyone.
We believe eBike should not hide its characteristics. Characterizing features like the motor should be convincingly integrated, but never hidden. Our goal is to engineer consistent, well-proportioned eBikes that shape the entire class of ePerformance bikes.
Stay on Trail – and Be Polite
eBikes have more power than a traditional bike and require more responsibility from riders toward nature as well as fellow human beings. Please be courteous and respectful of other trail users. Let’s respect the environment and reduce prejudice, not add to it.
A crash destroyed Andi Wittmann’s biking career – and has got him back on his feet in a completely different way. His path took him towards e-bikes, which he had so vehemently criticised in the past, and opened his eyes. more…
