the Haibike FLYON range of eBikes is one of the most anticipated electric bike ranges for 2020. Haibike was awarded ‘Best Brand’ by the readers of eMountainbike Magazine and it’s the first time ever that they’ve created a completely in-house eBike system, codenamed: FLYON.
What is Haibike FLYON?
Haibike have been secretly plugging away in their design and research lab in Schweinfurt, Germany to bring, for the first time ever, an exclusive new electric bike product for 2020.
Offering more torque (50% more), assistance (200% more) & range (26% more) than ever before… It’s called FLYON!
Highlights of the 2020 Haibike FLYON eBike system
FLYON Motor System
The motor is designed by a company called TQ. This company designs & manufactures direct-current motors for the control of modern satellites.
TQ has used this technology to create the HPR 120S crank drive eBike motor. The motor provides up to 120Nm of torque and assistance levels up to 820%.
Thanks to the integrated freewheel, the bicycle can be pedalled just like a regular bike without a motor. When the drive is disengaged, no internal components are moving.
FLYON Battery System
Haibike have designed all the components from the ground up using all their eBike experience to date. The battery uses a whopping 630Wh high-density cell to deliver a huge range.
The optional 10Ah quick charger charges this high capacity 630Wh battery to 80% within just 60 minutes! It can be charged both on or off the bike as the battery slides out the frame.
FLYON Display Controls
The system offers 5 levels of assist:- ECO, LOW, MID, HIGH & XTREME. The new colour TFT display offers all the rider credentials in a neat, compact and removable display.
Whilst the Haibike remote (located to the left of the bars) is quick and simple to navigate the modes. Five lovely bright colours illuminate to show the assistance mode selected alongside the same colours on the display. Easy to see at a quick glance while riding!
FLYON Carbon Frameset
All of this built into a brand new 2020 CARBON frameset by Haibike. This not only brings the weight down but allows complete integration of the system. It also allows Haibike to do special things like integrating lights into the rear swingarm. Not forgetting a front light to match too.
All of the cables run through the 2020 carbon frame using specialist channels, so everything looks really neat.
They’ve managed to squeeze in their Haibike ‘MRS’ (Modular Rail System) so all the Haibike accessories (Bottle, Lock, Tool Bag etc) fit onto the frame too.
In true Haibike fashion, the motor is integrated with a skid plate incorporated too, this adds protection & offers complete integration.
Lastly Haibike finish off this new frameset with a stealth dropper seat post, built-in, so again no cables are exposed. They have built in the speed sensor within the rear swingarm and instead of a magnet on the spokes, the sensor is built into the rear disc.
Highlights of the 2020 Haibike eConnect system
Following the successful first edition of the eConnect system, a new upgraded version – eConnect 2.0 has been released. This comes built-in FREE-OF-CHARGE on all 2020 Haibike FLYON electric bikes. Offering a new modern design, a user-friendly interface and extended features for 2020.
It has ‘smart features’ like text a family member with your location if the rider has a fall or alert you to your bike’s movements if you have it parked up somewhere.
For 2019 eConnect gets an improved route recording and a brand new user interface. It’s available in more countries, more languages and eBike dealers can access bike information too.
You can add more than one bike, meaning all of the families bikes can be controlled by the touch of a button. There’s a new app too. All current users can upgrade to the eConnect V2.0 for free!
