Sam Pilgrim is making big leaps with Haibike

British Freeride Pro Sam Pilgrim will utilize the potential of the XDURO series to redefine the limits of what is possible on an eMountainbike and help take ePerformance to the next level. 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 Pilgrim Quote
"I WANT TO SHOW WHAT'S POSSIBLE ON AN eBIKE WITH NEW TRICKS AND BIG JUMPS."

Sam continues, "I personally hated pedaling up hill, 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 pedaling 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!"

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.

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.
