Kalkhoff's New Motor Generation
Impulse has evolved and the perfect combination of e-bike and frame technology has a new name: Impulse Evo.
Developed for the new e-bike generation, the Impulse Evo drive system is ground-breaking in terms of innovation, integration and networking. The holistic design of motor, frame and components is what makes the difference with a unique result: Kalkhoff have created a skilfully engineered e-bike drive system that's the ideal blend of design and functionality, manufactured entirely in Germany. And of course there are some very important extra benefits you'd expect from Kalkhoff: more power, more efficiency and more innovation.

- An extra pedalling cadence sensor built into the motor gives even more sensitive control over the power assistance level
- Innovative multi-tooth axis for safe crank assembly
- The lighting system is powered via the motor
- Faster, high bandwidth data transmission via the automotive standard CAN Bus communication system
- Impulse Evo Speed provides assistance up to 28 mph (45 kph)
Evo & Evo RS Battery Packs
Impulse Evo batteries – the best energy store whichever the application
Whether incorporated into the down tube in the Integrale or elegantly placed behind the Include seat tube, both Impulse Evo battery versions use the same incredible battery technology. With 50 high-performance cells and a capacity of either 14.5 or 17 Ah, under ideal conditions power reserves give a range of up to 125 miles (200 km).
This new battery generation also offers durability, easy handling and rapid recharging. Cleverly, the dual-function charging socket also serves as a service interface through which software updates can be applied to your bike.
Impulse Evo's brain - the on-board computer
Impulse Evo LCD Smart – the intelligent networking solution
The new Impulse Evo Smart Display, thanks to the built-in Bluetooth module uses intelligent smart phone integration technology to function not only as the e-bike's on-board computer but also as a navigation system . You can even charge your smart phone through the standard USB socket.

Impulse Evo Navigation App – arrive untroubled and on time
With the Impulse Evo navigation app based on the tried-and-tested Naviki software, the Impulse Evo LCD Smart performs brilliantly as a navigation system.
Here's how it works: the super computer in your pocket, your smart phone, supplies the processing power, the navigation app does the routing and the Evo display supplies clear and simple navigation directions.
Your smart phone remains well-protected tucked in your pocket and its battery is spared since the e-bike display is used.
The Naviki software, which is as intelligent as it is easy to use, provides maps of Europe as well as a comprehensive range of functions:
- "Start-Destination" route calculation based on your bike's current battery capacity
- Route calculation "Plan a route around my location"
- Save your own routes and use Naviki routes
- Interesting waypoints (hotels, restaurants, specialist dealers)
