IMPULSE 2. 0 MID DRIVE
Providing an enormous 70Nm torque and working with the gear shifter to provide seamless transmission it’s the most capable crank drive unit around. Kalkhoff have engineered a more powerful, efficient, quieter motor that supplies massive assistance from a standing start and cuts all hills down to size.
GEAR SHIFT ASSIST TECHNOLOGY
A genuine innovation this year – every time you change up or down a gear, power drops away for a matter of milliseconds for optimal gear shifting. This does a number of great things – it extends your gears mechanical lifetime, feels satisfyingly natural and makes for a smoother application of all that power. They had to invent a little electromechanical gadget to detect gear changes that worked with the motor. They succeeded and the result brings a new feeling of confident power to riding a Kalkhoff electric bike.
MAGURA HYDRAULIC BRAKE
It’s been some years since Kalkhoff dropped cable-pull brakes on their most popular models. Magura’s hydraulic piston design makes braking easy, well-modulated and reliable over time. There are no cables to stretch, the whole surface of the brake pad is applied to the rim (protecting both), pads last for ages and braking is strong and sure-footed. Looks cool too, with strong arch and neat braking assembly tucked against the forks.
FRONT & REAR LIGHTS
Powered by a free-running Shimano hub dynamo, the lights on this and all Kalkhoffs are excellent. Few bikes on sale benefit from front and rear illumination of this quality and utility. The rear lamp behaves like a brake light, brightening when the bike’s brain detects deceleration. Not only that, the rear lamp with remain lit for several minutes at standstill, for added visibility when waiting at lights or junctions. The front lamp casts 80 lux of cool, bright LED light forward, enough to make night rides across the park something to enjoy rather than endure.
