Haibike Xduro AMT PRO 27.5

The sportiest e-bike MTB yet! We have to say right up front that the Haibike Xduro AMT Pro is an impressive mountain bike, and it is clearly more than the sum of its parts. And topping the parts list would be the new Bosch Gen 2 center drive system. No other e-bike brand has embraced […]

Zero FX: Urban assault at its stealthiest

It’s the dawning of a new era in motorcycles. Electric off-road bikes have finally graduated from the novelty category, and the Zero FX is proof that they are ready to go mainstream.
