Kalkhoff Sahel Comfort Electric Bike Reviews

Kalkhoff Sahel Comfort electric bike
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.

It’s now available to test ride at our new shop in Richmond, South West London and our premises in Loughborough, Leicestershire. Owners have commented on its reliability, good looks, pulling power and feeling of substantial quality. Along with the splendid Sahel Pro Disc, it’s one of our favourite models this year. It’s all very well us saying that, but here are three customers who picked this model over any other:
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.

Has 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!

I selected the bike after considerable research and it has met all of my expectations. I’m delighted with it.

This model originally went on sale for £2195 in the UK, but is now available at our Autumn sale price of for £1750, including VAT and UK delivery. It has already sold out in the very smallest frame size, but we still have a couple left with 50cm (medium) and 55cm (large) frames.

“Not the cheapest electric bike but DEFINITELY the best” 

Here’s a review of the 2010 Kalkhoff Pro Connect LX – the first we’ve had from a customer. Thanks Mike!

This was a replacement for my Ezee Torq bike which I’d purchased from 50 Cycles in 2008 and had great fun with. It converted me to electric biking!

The Kalkhoff Pro Connect LX electric bike is in a different class all together. For a start it is much lighter and I am able to cycle quite happily without any ‘power’ on if I so desire. I live in Norfolk which is fairly flat which makes cycling easy. It’s also great looking and superbly built, getting many an admiring look as I whiz round.

At first I wondered if I would miss the throttle that the Ezee Torq had but I quickly got used to the Pro Connect kicking in when needed and now much prefer this system. The motor is whisper quiet and, apart from the ease of cycling with the ‘power’ on, you really wouldn’t know you were riding an electric bike at all.

The most I managed on a battery charge with the Ezee Torq was about 25 miles but I’ve already done over 50 on my Pro Connect by using the lowest power setting apart from the odd hill or two! I’m 64 and sold my car a couple of years ago so my bike is used daily. It helps keep me fit and the motor assistance just means I go further. It certainly doesn’t make you lazy!

Not the cheapest electric bike but DEFINITELY the best!
