Exclusive solutions from the Kalkhoff development department.
Kalkhoff sport and trekking bikes are aimed at all bikers who love performance but aren't prepared to compromise on comfort and features. So they all offer a sporty frame geometry complemented by top-notch components, a sturdy pannier rack and a high-quality lighting system.
Exklusive concept parts
The EX series (high-quality lightweight) and the SL series (durable and robust) Concept parts, developed exclusively for Kalkhoff, offer an individually customised look. From the handlebar through to the stem, from the front light through to the dynamo, so ensuring maximum safety and an especially harmonious overall design.
Clean Belt Drive
Durable, quiet, clean and low-maintenance: there are many reasons to opt for a belt drive, which is why it‘s been included in the Kalkhoff range.
CONCEALED PANNIER RACK MOUNT
The newly developed pannier rack mount is concealed under the mudguard. This maximises stability and makes for very clean design.
NEW REAR TRIANGLE STAND
The stand is adjustable and, up, it hugs the bike, for even greater comfort and more secure footing.
CONCEPT EX LED FRONT LIGHT
The LED front light developed exclusively for Kalkhoff is extremely bright (80 Lux). Daytime running light and stand light maximise safety during both by day and at night.
CLAMPED HANDLEBAR GRIPS
The handlebar grips, with their built-in screw connection, clamp to the handlebar, which makes it possible to customise the look of the bike. The result is greater safety and an especially harmonious overall design.
The best trekking frame.
Kalkhoff Fitness: Even more stable. Even lighter. Even more complex manufacturing.
The redesigned dropout is hollow forged using a state-of-the-art method.This makes it extremely sturdy and light. In addition, the improved stand integration and the "concealed" pannier rack mount looks very harmonious. The clean lines make for a tidier-looking bike.
The carefully produced aluminium welds on the head tube and seat tube are painstakingly filled and smoothed. The effect is impressive: extremely smooth transitions and a superb finish.
HYDROFORMED TRIPLE BUTTED FRAME
For the frame, the aluminium tubes are formed in a complex process in an enclosed mould with the aid of a water/oil emulsion and an internal pressure of up to 3,000 bar. The controlled deformation of the frame tube enables us to produce up to three different wall thicknesses within the piece.Ultimately, the frame has optimal stability coupled with very low weight.
STRIKING HEAD TUBE
The highly stable aluminium tube is shapely and immensely durable.
FILIGREE REAR TRIANGLE
The elegant shape makes the bike look light and tidy.
Der formschöne, schlanke Quersteg sitzt zwischen den Sattelstreben und sorgt für die besonders hohe Stabilität des Rahmens im Hinterbau. Gleichzeitig gibt er der völlig neu entwickelten, versteckten Kalkhoff Gepäckträgerbefestigung sehr starken Halt.
