|The ďXduroĒ designation on Haibike bikes means itís powered by a Bosch motor. In this case, itís fitted with a Bosch Performance Line CX motor, the same powerful, torquey motor found on their upper-end mountain bikes. The motor has been rotated slightly up towards the battery/downtube, and the chainstays are angled to keep the chain line straight instead of using an extra pulley to route the chain around the small 18t front sprocket.
The Xduro Cross is also available with a low, step-through frame version. Itís not super low, but the top tube slopes appreciably lower down to the seat tube for easier step-through.
The 740mm-wide handlebars provide a stable platform for steering, and all the controls are mounted within fingersí reach. A Bosch Intuvia display shows all pertinent information at a glance. We like that itís removable for when you want to lock up your bike, and offers a micro USB port to let you power your phone for navigation
