The German testing institute ExtraEnergy put 16 different E-bikes through their paces in a comprehensive range of tests in summer. The Kalkhoff Sahel Compact Impulse 8R scored an outstanding 8 out of 10 points in the “Folding/Compact Pedelec” category and was thus rated as “very good”.
The testers were particularly impressed by:
- the agility
- the long range
- the versatility of the adaptation options
- the comfort thanks to the balloon tyres
Verdict: “(…) the result is an agile and nippy mini E-bike with a considerable range and versatile adaptation options.”
