Checking out the Haibike XDURO AllMtn 9.0 Ebike
When BOSCH announced the new powertube internal battery system we in the ebike community go really excited. EMTB riding can be a touchy situation here in the United States where entrenched camps in the MTB world often sneer at Ebikes on trail. Some trails here in the SF BAY area outright ban ebikes from trails, for no good reason. The new BOSCH intube system will make it a lot harder for a ranger or traditionalist to snoop about what you are, which means you can ride your ebike where you want in peace.
The new Haibike XDURO AMT 9.0 (all mountain) ebike features the new PowerTube system and it's going to be one of the hot tickets in 2018 when this things comes out. But, hold your hats, if you want one you're going to get to put in an order soon because these bikes will sell pre-sold before they are shipped. The other problem is they are not shipping until Summer of 2018 and there won't be enough of them.
The Haibike ALLMTN 9.0 has the BOSCH CX motor, of course and features FOX suspension front and rear. Dropper seatpost is there and great tires. The Bosch powertube is a little more expensive and weighs more than the standard 500w battery pack, but some will find it worth it.
Note- the PowerPack 500w and 400w systems will all be around for many years to come and if you are thinking about parts availability, the standard batteries will always be more common since they are easier to use on bikes.
Motostrano is taking orders on the AMT 9.0 now. Go ahead and get your order in.
Note- we also sell the Cube and Mosutache brand ebikes, which also use the Powertube (Cube) or in Moustache's case, they have a great Hidden Power system that uses that standard good old fashion Bosch system.
