    CLOPPENBURG. Kalkhoff is continuing to step on the gas in the new season 2017 and has further developed its product range accordingly. In so doing, Germany’s leading e-bike brand focuses on the perfect balance between design and function. Behind this is the clear principle of always being an idea ahead and always delivering the most coherent overall concept for the customer.

    “Naturally, we at Kalkhoff underline this claim with the new model range 2017,” Alexander Hülsmann, Brand Manager at Kalkhoff explains. “We have further upgraded our successful models with new colours and designs, but above all the use of new technologies. In addition, new model lines supplement our range in areas where our customers have not yet found the right bike for them. 

    The best example for the further development of Kalkhoff’s successful models is the new Kalkhoff Include Premium i8 ES, which, starting in 2017, will be available as standard with electronic FAG gearshift at the press of a button and will still be equipped with the proven Bluetooth display, navigation, long-range 17-Ah battery and belt drive. 

    A new addition to the Kalkhoff brand portfolio is the Select family: the seven Select models are equipped with the full range of comfort features – from electronic gearshift, automatic and navigation function to belt drive and XXL version. Spread over two electric drive systems: the Impulse Evo Next version which builds on the Impulse Evo motor, is joined by the Shimano Steps system. It is specially adapted to the needs of Kalkhoff and, with its own battery, fits perfectly into the new Kalkhoff design. 

    The urban segment sports a highlight as well: the new Durban models, like the Kalkhoff Durban g9 - robust, minimalist and extremely light! Like all members of the Durban family, the new e-bike convinces in the urban environment with an optimum combination of perfect design, low weight and unbeatable value for money. At this point low weight counts more than maximum range.
