Components & details
Kalkhoff selects brakes, gears and other components from the most respected suppliers in the industry and trusts in the high-quality own brand Concept. We also additionally check all the components we use in our own test laboratory. This allows us to review our quality standards on an ongoing basis.
The brakes should bring the bike to a standstill quickly and safely in any situation. State-of-the-art technology, a painstaking production process and testing once the brakes are mounted on the bike are therefore essential. The hydraulic rim brakes, which deliver the best stopping power even in wet conditions, are supplied by the German manufacturer Magura, for example. Otherwise, we use brakes from the world's largest manufacturer Shimano.
Our developers devoted special attention to the design of Kalkhoff's own Verso fork. With this suspension fork the brake is mounted behind the fork rather than in front, as is usually the case. This meant that the brakes could be made much more effective and annoying brake squeal could be avoided. We feel it is important to equip our bikes with the right type of brake for any situation in order to ensure safe cycling.
Exclusive: Stand light and daytime running light
The LED front light Concept EX Pro, developed exclusively for Kalkhoff, is extremely bright (80 Lux). Daytime running light and stand light maximise safety both by day and at night. The rear safety light has a stand light function. It lights up intermittently when braking, which increases road safety.
Kalkhoff uses gears from the world's largest manufacturer Shimano and parts from the US producer SRAM. We also use the premium-quality special gears from the German manufacturer Rohloff. Above all, our product developers place special emphasis on durability and precise functioning.
We love perfection down to the very last detail. The Kalkhoff pannier rack is designed for a load of 25 kilos, making it ideal for any shopping trip.
