2017 Kalkhoffs in stock A favourite at 50cycles since 2007, a decade later Kalkhoff are still producing market-leading ebikes. New motors, bigger batteries, fresh colours this season
Kalkhoff's Durban Compact is a new budget bike for 2017 with a plucky rear hub motor, small battery pack and built-in front carrier.
The concept is no-nonsense, highly functional urban mobility. Meaning it’s extremely easy to use (one button operation), it’s small, lightweight (only 19.6kg, even with that luggage carrier on the front), but powerful and well-equipped. It has a low and high power mode, built-in lights, a large front rack that can take a Eurobox 40 sized container or anything else you wish.
The wheels have Schwalbe puncture-resistant Big Apple tyres and Magura hydraulic rim brakes. They’re wrapped in extra-long mudguards for all-weather use.
The battery is mounted behind the seat tube, nice and low for a stable centre of gravity. It’s packed with Simplo Lithium ion cells, the same very high quality cells used in Apple products. The battery’s capacity won’t get you from Lands End to John O’Groats on a single charge, but it will carry you around the city for a whole day.
