The Haibike Trekking 4.0 is one of the most affordable Haibike models… but it offers quality fenders, rear rack, integrated LED lights, hydraulic disc brakes, and a 10-speed Shimano drivetrain with one-way clutch. The headlight has side windows to improve your visibility and I love the reflective stripes on the tires, the frame and fork are paint-matched and even the saddle has matching accents. This e-bike comes in five frame sizes across two frame styles (high-step and mid-step), the battery and motor keep weight low, it operates very quietly and efficiently, Yamaha motors have a good reputation for being reliable. The PWseries motor can only reach 100 RPM vs. 120 RPM on the PW-X or Bosch Performance motors, the Yamaha charger is a bit large and heavy with a more vulnerable connector, the suspension fork is entry-level spring design but does include lockout and preload adjust.

  1. Nice bike but, I'm glad I didn't get it. I ordered a Voltbike Enduro instead. Thanks for the details. I feel better about my purchase bc I can upgrade the components to better FS parts with the money I saved under $2.5k…

  2. Are you serious court!!!
    I just ordered this bike yesterday for my father and wrote a thread in your forums 😀
    Great timing

  3. oooh, i like this and had a fantastic BIG display that also does percentage!
    I wonder if you can opt for the larger 500w battery on purchase?
    Also can you add bigger tyres?

  4. The range estimates for this bike seem rather… optimistic. At least for normal use to optimize battery life. For comparison, I have a very similar bike with a similar motor system – Giant's entry level Dirt E2. Going from 90% to 30% in optimum ambient temperature gets me about 30 miles on flat terrain if I rely quite heavily on the Sport setting and go no faster than 15.5 mph.

  5. Since I just got my Haibike SDURO 7.5 (with my research on what to get widely based on your fabulous video reviews) I would love to hear what you have to say about that SDURO iteration. Greetings from Switzerland!

  6. Hello! Thanx this video! I want buy Sduro Trekking, but not 4.0 version. Do not make videos about other versions, or a comparative video with 6.0 and 8.0?. All of them have Yamaha motor, but 8.0 is have Yamaha PW SE. Greetings from Hungary (and sorry or bad english:)!

  7. Love your videos. I have a question about the battery. If you run the battery down to nothing, can you still recharge it. My wife’s ebike (genze) battery if you forget about it and it is totally dead then it won’t take a charge. I’m thinking there’s a fail safe built into the battery

  8. I have a HAIBIKE SDURO Trekking 5.0, and I am very pleased with it. I use it mostly for commuting but also for longer trips, both on asphalt, dirt roads and trails. My bike has the Bosch CX engine and is probably the best part on the bike. When I looked at your review, I realise that 4.0 and 5.0 differ more than I thought. It would be really interesting to see you doing a review of 5.0 when many of the other parts on the bike are different (even though I already made my choice of bike 🙂
    I really appreciate your reviews, you make them interesting and enjoyable to watch. (Greetings from Midnight Sun Sweden)

  9. Available for $1999 at Motostrano. Would like to see the reviewers be just tough on some of the value net only Chinese bikes (like Add Motor) as this review. Very tough. 2X cost, but I prefer the 9.0.

  10. Now on my third week with this bike. Seventy years old and two hip replacements. Biking in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine became unenjoyable because I was losing strength and stamina. This has been a great turn-around! I can cruise up inclines at 10+/- mph very comfortably. No rides beyond 20 miles yet but as I improve conditioning, longer rides will soon be very doable. I will not be taking any gnarly trails, but have been on numerous gravel roads and two dirt trails. It surprised me how easily I could start on upslopes with the assist. Your videos were a great help in selecting an appropriate e-bike for me. One thing I have not seen is whether or not riding in rain is a concern. Any advice there?
