Once again, Haibike have clearly focussed on power: the new AllMtn 7 comes equipped with a powerful Yamaha PW-X2 motor, an integrated 600 Wh battery and a full carbon frame. With the new frame platform, Haibike want to set new standards for geometry and handling. Have they succeeded? We’ve compared the bike against 24 other exciting eMTBs.

The Haibike AllMtn 7 is styled from top to toe. The sand-coloured carbon frame has been redesigned from scratch but still bears the typical design features that characterise the German brand. The frame silhouette, sexy Haibike chainring and head tube with its distinctive radiator grille all hint at the character of the AllMtn7. Likewise, Haibike rely on mixed wheel sizes, 160 mm travel and a powerful Yamaha PW-X2 motor. Unfortunately, the average feel and ergonomics of the minimalistic Yamaha Display A don’t match the rest of the bike. An in-house remote, like the one GIANT use, would have been a more sensible option. The motor is fed by an internal 600 Wh battery integrated into the voluminous down tube. An absolute highlight is the Modular Rail System on the down tube, which can be used to attach bottle cages, Abus locks and other accessories inside the main triangle. Very cool!

The spec of the Haibike AllMtn 7 is polarising

The spec of the Haibike AllMtn 7 is polarising! It seems that Haibike couldn’t decide whether to use high-end components for uncompromised trail performance or stick to a more cost-effective spec for the € 6,199 AllMtn 7. Nonetheless, the Shimano groupset manages to strike a perfect compromise between price and performance. The drivetrain consists of an XT derailleur with a matching shifter together with an SLX cassette and chain. The Shimano XT four-piston brakes with 200 mm rotors are also excellent, as is the high-quality Syntace alloy wheelset with MAXXIS Minion tires. However, aggressive riders should upgrade to a more robust tire with a Doubledown casing at the rear. While it may initially sound like a small inconvenience, the dropper post only offers 150 mm travel and the remote is hard to operate, both of which become an issue on the trail. We recommend upgrading to a higher-quality model (remote and dropper) straight away. A FOX DPX2 Factory shock manages 160 mm of travel at the rear while a custom 160 mm FOX 38 Factory fork is fitted at the front. Unfortunately, Haibike have opted for a FIT4 damper with a pointless lockout instead of using the far superior GRIP2 damper. What a pity!

The Yamaha PW-X2 is very powerful and pushes hard even at low cadences, making it easier to ride on undulating terrain. If you approach a steep ramp in the wrong gear, you can rely on the powerful motor.
Small detail, big disappointment
The remote of the dropper post is a flimsy ergonomic disaster. The dropper itself only offers 150 mm travel and developed play just a few minutes into our test. While this may seem a small detail, it really affects your ride.
Style for miles
Haibike place great importance on a distinctive look for all of their bikes. For this purpose, they rely on several in-house components that are immediately recognisable and create an immediate association with the brand.

Specific Features

Modular Rail System

More of the same, please
Haibike’s Modular Rail System allows you to attach bottle cages, tool bags, locks and other accessories onto the frame rail on the down tube. Other manufacturers could learn a thing or two from Haibike here.
Wrong damper
We’re huge fans of the FOX 38 Factory, which comes with the excellent GRIP 2 damper on all the other bikes in this test. Unfortunately, Haibike use a special model of the fork equipped with the FIT4 damper: we’d happily swap the lockout for better trail performance!
The charger port is hidden under the battery cover of the AllMtn 7, where it’s protected against dirt and water – and there’s one less annoying hole in the frame!

In terms of geometry, the AllMtn 7 is one of the most progressive Haibikes we’ve ever tested. However, the 461 mm reach in size L is still compact compared to the rest of the test field and is combined with a very high front end (650 mm stack). The very steep seat angle is particularly noticeable when you sit on the bike for the first time. On the flats, the AllMtn7 places the riders centrally, almost directly above the bottom bracket. The front-heavy position puts a lot of pressure on the hands on long tours and not even the high front end helps. For longer excursions, we recommend pushing the saddle back. Once you’ve adjusted the riding position, the Haibike cuts a fine figure even on longer tours. The suspension and voluminous 2.8” rear tire make for a plush ride and filter out the smallest of bumps. The very powerful Yamaha PW-X2 drive also contributes to the relaxed ride. It doesn’t care in which gear or at which cadence you’re riding and is the only motor in the entire test field that keeps pushing and pushing and pushing… sometimes even too much! From a standstill, the motor engages as soon as you touch the pedals, eliciting a powerful jolt and surging forward. Less experienced riders should definitely start off in a low support level.

The Haibike AllMtn 7 on the trail

Uphill, the Haibike AllMtn 7 is a blast! On steep terrain, the progressive pedalling position suddenly makes sense. The front wheel sticks to the ground and the suspension and tires never lose traction, even on loose ground. Supported by 80 Nm of raw Yamaha grunt, the AllMtn 7 forgives poor line and gearing choices. The Haibike is easy to control and responds to steering inputs directly and predictably. While it’s not excessively nimble, it’s very forgiving and thus suitable for beginners who are still working on their riding technique.

When riding uphill, the Haibike AllMtn 7 is a true blast! However, it does not deliver 9the same performance on the way down.

Tuning tips: upgrade dropper post and remote | push the saddle back (!) on long tours | more robust rear tire

Downhill, the Haibike AllMtn 7 and its high front communicate huge amounts of confidence. The long chainstays allow you to carve through open corners intuitively with equal amounts of traction on both wheels and the plush 160 mm suspension provides plenty of traction on root carpets and rock gardens. At low and medium speeds, the AllMtn 7 negotiates even larger obstacles easily and safely. Like the Ducati, it sucks itself into the ground but generates more traction than its Italian competitor. That being said, it’s never as fun as the more lively bikes on test, not even on flowing trails. The sluggish Haibike sucks up the rider’s input and provides too little support and reserves at high speeds. As a result, the Haibike AllMtn 7 has to admit defeat to the more capable all-rounders of our test field on the trail.

The stylish Haibike AllMtn 7 heralds a new sporty era for the innovative German brand. It delivers solid performance, especially uphill, and impresses with its easy handling and good-natured motor. Beginners will benefit from the intuitive and confidence-inspiring handling downhill. However, active and faster riders won’t be happy with the affordable AllMtn 7 because it’s too sluggish and doesn’t provide enough reserves.


  • typical Haibike look
  • good and forgiving uphill
  • inspires lots of confidence at low speeds


  • inconsistent spec
  • not a peppy ride downhill
  • suspension does not offer enough control at high speeds
