Though Haibike has been teasing the US market with photos of its XDURO Fullcarbon and a promised release this spring, it’s only just become available for pre-order from an actual shop (Motostrano), so we imagine that it’s only a matter of weeks before the first few examples make their way over to our fair shores. The bike, with a US MSRP of $9,500, appears to be the Fullcarbon RX trim level, which comes with Mavic wheels and shocks from RockShox and Fox (front and rear, respectively).
The Bosch-powered ebike sports a rare combination of a carbon fiber frame paired with a full suspension. Trail riders with $9,500 burning a hole in their pockets ought to get ready to drop some serious cash, because this bike promises to be quite the off-road performer, especially considering the almost universal acclaim that is showered upon Haibike offroad models by influential ebike reviewer Court Rye.
There’s no word yet on the final weight that we can expect for the Fullcarbon, but since the aluminum-framed full suspension Haibike XDURO FS RX weighs 48lbs, we’d put good money on the Fullcarbon tipping the scales somewhere just above 40lbs.
