DISTINCTIVE THROUGH EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE

 

Here at Kalkhoff, the best part of the day is riding our bikes – a Kalkhoff bike ‘moves you everywhere’. Everything here revolves around the integrated e-bike design: sleek lines, optimum integration and pure, stylish colours with a Nordic character.

 

Thanks to constant checks and the use of advanced production processes and technology, we always satisfy our own high standards of quality, craftsmanship, durability and reliability. And we keep our promise of providing the very best biking experience. Even our prototypes, which we test here in Cloppenburg, are expected to meet standards that are more stringent than the branch guidelines and statutory requirements.

 

Independent test centres and test results demonstrate our high quality, as does our integrated e-bike design. We can’t tell you how proud we are of these results!
