THE Story of Haibike
HAIBIKE BRAND FOUNDED
In 1995, Haibike was founded in the small German city Schweinfurt. In the beginning these sporty bikes were still offered under the name of our parent brand Winora, but soon became Haibike. Over the next 15 years, the brand developed new models and further advanced, both visually and technically.

ELECTRIC ROAD BIKE STUDY
Design and technology continue to advance. At Eurobike 2011, Haibike presents the XDURO Race – a fast 28mph (45 km/h) eRunner, electric road bike.

This is the beginning of a new category: “fast road.”

HAIBIKE INTEGRATES MOTOR AND BATTERY
Haibike integrates the Bosch system components into the frame decreasing the optical size of the motor by 38%. The battery is formally and technically integrated as well.
