Helvellyn By eBike!

Company director Guy puts the Haibike XDURO AllMtn 8.0 through its paces. At 950 metres, Helvellyn is England’s third highest mountain and there is a tough bridleway circuit passing over the summit! The AllMtn 8.0 is equipped with the 120 Nm Flyon motor, a 630 Wh battery, plush suspension, plenty of gears and this powerful eBike handled the route perfectly. Thank you Haibike for another great day out! NB. This is an advanced route only and was chosen to test the capabilities of a top of the range eMTB. Please do not attempt unless you have suitable training, full first
