HAIBIKE ECONNECT, NEW E-MTBS AND BEST BRAND 2016
by Moritz Dittmar
A few weeks ago, at the presentation of the 2017 e-mountainbike range, Haibike announced the impending release of the the eConnect platform; at that time, however, there was no functional software. Just in time for EUROBIKE, the crew from Haibike showed up with a developer version of the new connectivity solution. We were there to get a first impression.
Haibike eConnect is a new technological basis for the interlinking of e-bikes, currently reserved for the 8.0 Haibike top models. The central element of the system is an integrated OnBoardUnit (OBU), incorporating GPS, GSM and Bluetooth chips. The main battery supplies the power for the OBU, however, a buffer battery takes over the job whilst the main battery is removed.
