ABOUT
SAM PILGRIM

When asked why he chose to ride for the ePerformance Pioneer Haibike, Sam Pilgrim replied, "I really liked the look of what Haibike was doing in terms of being more extreme with eBikes and pushing the freeride side of things, it was an obvious choice really!"

Sam continues, "I personally hated pedalling uphill, it was just something that sucked in between the fun stuff, but then I actually tried an eBike and now everything is fun! I actually still can't believe how fun it is even when I'm pedalling up!"

Pilgrim will participate in several events of the FMB World Tour with his custom-made Haibike dirt jump Bike in 2018 and continue his series of regular adrenaline-fueled YouTube videos. "I want to show what's possible on an eMTB new tricks and big jumps!"
