Trekkingbike magazine tested the Kalkhoff Image XXL 30-speed in its 06/2014 issue. This is a bike built for very tall riders and a total weight of up to 170 kg. The trekking bike impressed the testers on two fronts: it was rated "very good" for its ride characteristics, and described as a "top tip" offering good value for money.
The Trekkingbike testers loved the following in particular:
- modern, sturdy frame
- very high level of comfort
- sensitive and powerful hydraulic brake
Verdict: "The riding position and type of use are spot on: this speedy bike is good for everyday use and Sunday spins to the local beauty spot!"
Eight bikes were tested: 2x "great", 5x "very good" and 1x "good". The complete report can be found in the 06/2014 issue of Trekkingbike.
