Kalkhoff Sahel Compact

This is the best compact e-bike ever made! Perfect for commuting, travelling, the boat, the caravan or city living.

The Kalkhoff Sahel Compact Impulse 8 is without doubt the best compact e-bike available, offering impressive agility on your way to work (or play! ) and performs exceptionally well through zig-zagging back street short-cuts or coastal paths. Its short wheelbase means it can be stored and transported in all sorts of tight spaces. It’s the lightest of the Impulse drive range at around 20. 5kg. The Schwalbe Big Ben tyres look the business and take the edges off rough terrain.

It’s powered by the new Impulse 2. 0 mid drive motor and a 36 volt 11. 5Ah battery that gives up to 150 kilometer range. The Sahel Compact is superbly well-equipped with Magura hydraulic brakes, 8 speed Shimano gear hub, brilliant front and rear lights, new illuminated handlebar controls, puncture-resistant tyres, integrated mudguards and handy kickstand.New higher capacity 612 Wh battery for up to 90 miles of riding per charge

DRIVE POWER AS QUIET AS A WHISPER

The advanced Impulse 2.0 motor systems offer even greater power delivery: Powerful start-up across all assist levels and more rapid acceleration make for a safe, controlled ride in which the drive remains as quiet as a whisper – in other words, even more enjoyment.

 

impulse 2 kit

E-BIKE TECHNOLOGY FOR ANY PURPOSE AND BIKE TECHNOLOGY FROM A SINGLE SOURCE

A unique E-Bike system where all the frame, drive and chassis components were developed, coordinated and manufactured together to create the perfect package. Entirely in Germany and as if made from one piece.

SHIFT SENSOR

WORLD-FIRST SHIFT-SENSOR TECHNOLOGY

We invented the perfect gear-change: faster, quieter and low-wear, even with pressure on the pedals. Perfectly integrated in the overall system, the shift-sensor technology interrupts the power flow for fractions of a second with each gear-shift. Imperceptible for the rider, individually adjustable, for both hub gears and derailleur gears.
