Welded in Germany

Rohloff 500 e14

The Rolls-Royce of gear hubs.
518 % spread, 14 gears, durability up to well over 100,000 km

Bosch Performance CX motor

BOSCH's strongest motor with 85 nm torque

No chain

The GATES CDX carbon belt lasts 10 times longer. It is oil-free and clean, maintenance-free and whisper-quiet.

Bosch CX Power

With only 2.9 kg and a size reduced by 48%, the Bosch CX motor is the undisputed benchmark for mid-range motors. It accelerates with exceptional power, reacts without delay and now assists with up to 340 % of the pedal force used. Its new transmission concept reduces pedalling resistance to a minimum, providing a natural riding experience even at speeds above 25 km/h or with the engine switched off.

Available with the following command centers

Nyon connects to the smartphone via the eBike Connect app and exchanges data on routes and activities. As an intelligent guide, the colour display supports you when exploring previously unknown places and, with fitness data, acts as a personal trainer. The all-in-one onboard computer can be operated intuitively and easily via the touchscreen. While driving, it is controlled via a separate control unit. Whether for extended tours or short everyday rides: the robust and perfectly viewable display is ideally equipped for all requirements and all weather conditions.

Kiox offers all the functions that a sporty driver needs. The slim, scratch-resistant colour display is controlled via a separate control unit with tangible pressure points. It provides riding data on speed, own performance, heart rate, battery charge and much more. With Kiox, you have all the essential information at your fingertips.

A Bluetooth connection with an optional chest strap means you are always informed about your current heart rate range and can thus exercise optimally. The Bluetooth Low Energy interface also offers software updates to be downloaded to your onboard computer without a cable connection.

Bosch dual battery

No road too far: DualBattery is the perfect solution for touring bikers and long-distance commuters. The combination of two Bosch batteries delivers up to 1,125 Wh and intelligently switches between the two batteries when charging and discharging.

POWERTUBE 500WH / 625WH

The new Bosch PowerTubes, which HNF-NICOLAI installs in the XF3, store 500Wh and 625Wh of energy. As in-tube batteries, they disappear discreetly in the frame of the XF3, where they are safely housed. They are easy to install and remove and can also be charged directly on the bike.

Your gear box

Speedhub 500 from Rohloff is the gearbox for e-bike pilots with unique requirements. The Rohloff Speedhub 500 offers, among other things:

  • the widest gear ratio (526%) – equally suitable for the steepest climbs and the fastest descents
  • the highest degree of efficiency of all gear hubs worldwide,
  • a lifespan that equals the mileage of several round-the-world trips, and
  • Fourteen extremely evenly graded gears in a hermetically sealed housing.

We always install the Rohloff Speedhub 500 with the electronic e14 control, which conveniently changes gear within an unbelievable 180 milliseconds – including motor synchronization. Skipping several gears is also no problem. And when you stop at the traffic lights, the Rohloff Speedhub 500 automatically switches back to its starting gear.

ROCKSHOX LYRIC SELECT

In the Lyrik Select, RockShox combines DebonAir™ air suspension with the proven Charger™ RC damping and its adjustable low-speed compression and rebound damping. In addition, the Maxima Plush Fluid helps to further reduce internal friction and permanently offers a silky soft suspension performance.

MAGURA MT5

The proven 4-piston technology from motorcycle racing, adapted to bike use, promises high braking power. Braking power combined with ergonomics enables optimal performance for any terrain. The use of Carbotecture® technology in the brake lever housing helps the MT5 to be lightweight with top braking performance.

GATES CARBON DRIVE CDX

Quiet, maintenance-free, clean, almost without wear and tear and extremely durable. E-bikes with extremely powerful central motors place special demands on their drive system; you can literally watch them wear and tear on conventional chains. Gates has optimized the Carbon Drive CDX specifically for the performance requirements of the e-bike and thus developed a new, remarkably durable and maintenance-free system. It's 20% lighter and lasts up to 10 times longer than a well-maintained steel chain. And best of all: unlike the chain, the belt does not elongate with time. No need for re-tensioning.

Your lighting system

The M99 MINI Pro 25 is the first approved headlight with high beam and low beam to comply with the new European Road Traffic Licensing Regulations. A high beam is essential, especially in off-road use, because it significantly improves the illumination of the trail. As it illuminates the entire environment, safety is massively increased. So after a sporty night ride, the integrated low beam can ease the drive home – without dazzling oncoming traffic.

Uncompromising quality

A timeless and reduced design has always been at the heart of our robust and high-quality bikes. Today, HNF stands as a symbol for the pioneering achievements that drive our advanced drivetrain concept: We preferably combine the powerful and indestructible Bosch motors with a durable belt drive and a continuously variable transmission. This combination, which we first introduced in 2015 with the XD series, is today considered the gold standard for maintenance-free operation across all manufacturers. Since 2022, we have also been adding high-quality chain drives and gears to our product range, enabling us to serve broader market segments.
