Electric Trials

  May 5, 2017

Six-time World Champion Marco Hösel is one of the greats of trials riding. Now retired from competition, Marco is hitting the streets. In his newest video Marco goes electric, riding an eBike from the city to the forest and conquering all obstacles in his path.

Marco rides an HNF Heisenberg XF1 full-suspension electric mountain bike in the video. The goal is to show the eBike’s power and agility. Learn more about HNF Heisenberg and its BMW swingarm technology–and its drivetrain consisting of a Gates belt drive, Rohloff hub and Bosch motor–in our previous post, “Breaking Good.”
