So why does a DH bike need a pedal assist motor, isn’t that a ridiculous weight penalty and completely useless on the downs? Well turns out that Sam Pilgrim knows what we are all about to learn – that DH eBikes are absolutely bloody ridiculous good fun. Get up fast, get down fast, get involved…fast!

“Haibike France invited me out to do some MTB downhill in the french alps which was pretty awesome. I was riding on a brand new Haibike downhill 8.0 electric bike eMTB and this thing was pretty amazing. The MTB trails here in La Plagne were super fun and the black diamond track was the best. It had some technical bits and some good jumps.Later in the day Tom from Haibike France got out his drone and some other camera gear to get me a few shots the finished piece looks sick!”

The rest of the video was shot on GoPro Hero 6 black!

Thanks to La Plagne for the sick hotel and Haibike for the invite.
