Haibike, launched the ‘Lyke’ – the vehicle to a new level of joy and discovery.
Haibike, forerunner of the ever-evolving sport of e-cycling, launched its lightest bike to date, the all-new Lyke. With ambitious trail-riders at the heart of its design, the Lyke is crafted from a unique blend of materials, pairing its light carbon frame for a stiff yet responsive ride, with an alloy rocker for increased durability.
Every feature of the Lyke is engineered around delivering a first-class riding experience; Haibike’s exciting new kinematic concept ensures that any obstacles are overcome with ease, enabling riders a smooth uphill as well as an agile downhill. The concept of decoupling the motor and battery makes way for a lower than standard battery position, giving riders the freedom to adopt an even lower centre of gravity, and experience unrivalled levels of stability and control on the most challenging terrains.
The Lyke comes fitted with the Fazua Ride60, a fresh new e-system that packs an impressive power-to-weight capacity ratio into a small and compact size.It allowed for the decision to go with a closed downtube, adding to its sleek aesthetic as well as the ease with which its decoupled battery can be removed.
A wide range of cutting-edge features have been included to add fun to every type of trail; the full 29” wheel set and balanced 140/140mm travel create the perfect conditions for nailing technical descents with confidence. Meanwhile, the Lyke’s geometry lends itself to the absence of front-end rise, offering a relaxed yet highly efficient uphill riding position. This design, along with the bike’s well-balanced slack angles results in a dynamic trail bike that offers a great all-around feel, adding speed, fun, and capability to any riding adventure.
Kickstarters of the eMTB boom, German eMTB brand Haibike has been passionately inventing e-bikes for 12 of its 27 years. The brand’s vision to make e-cycling adventures accessible to all can be seen in the wide variety of products it offers; from long travel trail eMTBs to trekking leisure bikes, there is a perfect e-bike to suit every rider, regardless of skill level. As the original pioneers of e-bike technology, innovation and performance are deeply rooted in Haibike’s DNA, and these characteristics shine through in the Lyke.
Matthias Rueckerl, Global brand manager at Haibike said: “The Lyke is proof of Haibike’s constant drive to push the boundaries of innovation. With the development focused on weight, handling and design, in combination with a removable battery system, we created a unique and unparalleled concept”.
