Our new website was switched on just in time for Christmas. It’s a major overhaul and redesign and you’ll find it faster, cleaner and easier to navigate. As well as improving its looks we’ve also filled the virtual shelves with a range of new products, including long-awaited 2011 Kalkhoff bikes, new lights, helmets and other ingenious cycling and sporting accessories. Take a look at 50cycles electric bikes online
New 2011 Kalkhoff Pro Connect S DL electric bike – boosted assistance, carbon components and very high-end Shimano XTR groupset drivetrain. Surely the ultimate high-performance electric bike when combined with Kalkhoff’s new 18Ah Lithium battery pack, the highest capacity of any production ebike battery now standard across much of the 2011 range.
New Kalkhoff Pro Connect C8 Disc electric bike – with boosted maximum assistance, the new 18Ah battery pack and a fresh design, the renowned Pro Connect is going to be one of our best sellers in 2011.
New Agattu C3
And Kalkhoff’s first Bionx powered regenerative electric bike, the Image B27
2011 Agattu Lite – not electric and it doesn’t even have a chain but its 11-speed Alfine hub and minimal looks make this a very interesting pedal cycle
Tunebug Shake – unless you happen to be riding through a festival or past the bandstand in your local park, listening to music while cycling usually involves blocking your ears with headphones. Not a good idea on busy city streets, or even quiet country lanes. So, as people who love music AND cycling, the Tunebug Shake is a very welcome new product. It attaches to your cycle helmet, turning the whole thing into a head-mounted surround sound speaker, wirelessly. It sounds brilliant. Turn on, tune in and ride away.
LED spoke light – we have one of these running in our Richmond electric bike shop window and it’s turned out to be a powerful eye-catcher. It relies on persistence of human vision to give an illusion of brightly lit words, numbers and geometrical patterns that appear inside the moving wheel. With 40 patterns and phrases, auto-off and low energy blue LEDs, it’s a novel and highly visible way to be seen out on the road.
Casqu’en Ville helmets – it’s been a cold Winter and there was a while yet to go. But that does not mean the prospect of chilly wind buffeting your ears should put you off cycling. Our Yakkay, Casco and Casqu’en Ville helmets all include styles that offer protection against the elements for your ears as well as the usual safety features.
Bern helmets – a great-looking, cool brand of cycle helmet from the US skate scene. Available to try on in our Richmond store.
