Under the motto KALKHOFF MEETS CAMPUS, 13 students from Ghent University in Belgium spent a semester analysing our design language and translating it into a completely new product. Kalkhoff’s design language allows our individual products to grow together into an entire family. Even at first glance, the shapes, details and design principles suggest an e-bike developed by Kalkhoff. Straight lines, the characteristic Kalkhoff bend on the down tube and the angular tube profiles give our products a dynamic and strong feeling.
