Fast, and awarded with a “Good” in the Easy product group, it’s not quite as exciting as its little brother, the Trekking 4.0, which took the test win in the Easy product group.
The Haibike SDURO Trekking S 6.0 is a dependable companion for people who live in the fast lane. It combines a well-tuned, smooth-running and legendarily reliable drive system from Yamaha with the robust and solid-riding Haibike aluminium frame.
With its rather discreet red colour highlights it is distinctly shy and retiring in comparison to some of the other Haibikes in the test. It seems that the bike’s developers had commuting use in mind, for which it’s an advantage if your bike does not stand out in the cycle racks at the station or outside your workplace. This reduces the risk of it being discovered by the light-fingered.
Compared with its sister model, the 4.0, it’s striking that for 1000 Euro more you don’t just get an insurance ID plate holder, but also 5 km/h more average speed on the “Tour” circuit and 3.8 km/h more on the “Hills” section. In the City section, however, the advantage is just 0.4 km/h increase in average speed.
