Made of impact-resistant plastic, the lightweight SkidPlate provides effective protection against scratches or damage to the motor of your eBike.
Conventional eBike motors sit low in the frame and run the risk of being damaged by strikes to the underside of your bike. In 2012 we introduced the SkidPlate, a simple protective element that effectively protects the motor from below.
Protection from below
Similar to a helmet, the SkidPlate protects the motor from damage and is strong enough to absorb even the hardest of strikes that would otherwise damage the motor.
Plastic as the ideal material
We use a special, impact-resistant plastic that is able to perfectly distribute force and withstand deformation of its shape. Unlike metal, which would bend permanently, plastic springs back to its original state. The paint color conceals scratches and damages, and if necessary the SkidPlate can be replaced easily and inexpensively.
Haibike Gravity Casting Interface
The heart of Haibike aluminum frames: lightweight, highly stable, and manufactured with a special casting technology used in the manufacturing of motorcycle parts.
The centerpiece of the frame: the motor interface. At this connection point many important functions come together: the engine mount, swing arm and shock mounts, and the battery and downtube connection. The more stable the interface is, the more stable the entire frame is.
We started using a casting process from the motorcycle industry, gravity casting, in 2010. Negative molds are created from compressed sand, filled with aluminum-zinc alloy, and then rotated along precisely calculated axes. Thanks to gravity, there is uniform thickness throughout the casting.
Light, stable and precise
The raw cast aluminum parts are controlled by X-ray analysis and then reworked in a computerized process that ensures a consistently high level of precision, and a finished interface that is low weight and high-strength.
Haibike Integrated Motor Concept
Haibike technically and visually perfected the integration of the motor into the frame.
The motor is the technological core and defining characteristic of an eBike. Thanks to our Gravity Casting motor interfaces we can integrate the motor in a compact manner without separate mounting plates. This concept reduces the space required to mount the motor and decreases the visual volume of the engine.
The SkidPlate is a useful protective device from a technical perspective, but also allows us to optically integrate the motor to make it part of the frame. Unlike other integration concepts, the motor looks like a natural part of the eBike.
Yamaha PW Drive Unit
Powerful, reliable and proven: The PW engine from eBike drive pioneer Yamaha provides dynamic support up to 20mph and allows a dual chainring.
The Yamaha PW unit is proven to be a powerful and reliable motor. Thanks to its Zero-Cadence system, it supports the rider from the first revolution of the crank. As one of the few motors available allowing a dual chainring, the Yamaha system is able to offer a broad range of gears providing more gear options out on the trails. Given its high maximum torque of up to 80Nm, its compact size, and its low noise, the Yamaha PW is one of the best eBike systems for sporty use.
Yamaha LED Display
Small, robust and displays important information and functions.
The Yamaha LED display is a compact yet robust display and remote unit. Despite its small size, it provides the rider with all essential information. Positioned on the left of the handlebars, the remote is easily accessible?.
Information available includes: the selection and display of the support levels (Off, Eco+, Eco, Standard, High), the current speed, the battery charge level, and the remaining range. The display also allows you to switch on and off of the main light.
