With the most striking looks of any Kalkhoff electric bicycle, the Sahel Comfort has a level of style and equipment that is unique. It shares the latest 250W high assistance motor, Panasonic Lithium battery pack and Busch & Muller LED lights with several other models, but the Brooks aged leather saddle and handgrips, couple with excellent Magura hydraulic rim brakes, are reserved for the Sahel Comfort alone.
I rode the Trek (Bionx Trek FX+ electric bike) and generally found it a bit disappointing – it didn’t help as much as I had hoped on any incline (and I was trying it without James and his trailer).I then tried several Kalkhoff bikes – they were all much better and I thought the heavier build suited my trailer needs better. In the end, I purchased a Kalkhoff Sahel Comfort.It works brilliantly with James and his new trailer – the hub gears are something which I would have avoided but they are ideal for casual riding, especially when you are forced to stop unexpectedly with a heavy load. I had also planned to ride a Cytronex bike – the company were really helpful and helped me avoid a long, long drive to try out a bike which almost certainly would have been less suitable than the Kalkhoff.Fergus, LancashireHas fully met my expectations. Had no problem and found the range good, although I don’t have a long commute and might not be the ideal person to judge. Has certainly kept a few disagreeable sweat pearls away. Lang lebe Kalkhoff!Rolf, LondonI selected the bike after considerable research and it has met all of my expectations. I’m delighted with it.Michael, Buckinghamshire
