TRUE ROLE MODELS: Our HAIBIKE HEROES

They are the heroes of a new era. Special people with special stories, outstanding, courageous and inspirational. People who dared to take a chance at an early stage, to devote themselves to a new sport at a time when many people didn’t even recognise it as such: our Haibike Heroes. With all of them, we share a common goal and, often, a friendship. We want to take this opportunity to present our heroes and explain what makes them so heroic.

Haibike Hero Sam Pilgrim

Sam Pilgrim

Sam Pilgrim, from Colchester in the UK, started his Dirt Jump career at the age of 14. Ever since, he has always been one of the leading figures in international competitions: In 2011 he won the Red Bull District Ride in Nuremberg; in 2013 he carried off the victory in the Freeride Mountainbike World Tour.

Haibike Hero Andi Wittmann

Andi Wittmann

He is one of the world's best dirt bikers, holds the world record for the highest natural hip jump, organises bike events and is so fit that he wants to take parts in enduro races. Following a horrific crash, his feet and his sporting career looked to have been completely destroyed. During his tenacious fight to get back on a bike, he discovered eBikes, which he had been heavily critical of in the past.
Haibike Hero Max Semsch

Maximilian Semsch

After graduating from school, he just got on his bike and rode from Munich to Singapore. Without training, without major preparations. His second tour took him to Australia, or, more precisely, around it. This is the longest eBike tour to this date, measuring 16.000 km.
