Haibike voted best electric mountain bike 2017

Each year E-MOUNTAINBIKE Magazine asks their readers which brands create the best E-MTBs and which brand you are most like to buy.  This year 8,109 riders from 79 different nations participated, and the results are in...

For the second year running Haibike is voted Best Brand and Most Likely To Buy, and Bosch is voted the preferred motor again.  And, while the top 3 brands stay the same, its great to see new contenders Focus and Moustache enter the Top 10 this year.


Here are the results showing the #1 brand to the #10 brand, as voted by readers. You can see that Haibike maintains a healthy lead over the other brands as Best Brand 2017. The competition is hotting up though and it is great to see that Focus, with their fabulous Jam2 and Moustache with their ground-breaking 'Hidden Power' battery design enter the Top 10 for the first time.

These results provide two really interesting insights:

  1. The composition of the top 10. Seven of the brands from last year are still in the Top 10 but there is some shuffling around in the lower order, with three dropping out to make way for new contenders, including Focus and Moustache. In a year where there has been some seriously large investment in the category it is great to see that Haibike, who originally invented the category, still the clear leader. 
  1. Rockshox and Fox are still pretty much even for choice of suspension however this year Magura edge out Shimano for best brakes.
Focus Jam2 Plus


      Bosch is still ahead as the best motor winning more than 50% of the votes and it is interesting to see that Shimano takes the place of Yamaha this year as the next most popular motor.

      And with the recent release of the new Brose MTB motor we watch with interest to see how the top 3 will pan out next year!
