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.
