The Tasman is designed from the tyres up to be the ideal electric bike for zooming around towns and cities. Comfortable, confidence-inspiring and well-equipped it's a safe and easy way to cut any journey down to size, or to open up new areas you've yet to explore.
What's 12 miles along the river? What if I cycle over that hill? Is it quicker to ride than take the train? The Tasman makes it fun and exciting to answers to questions like that.
It's powered by the new Impulse 2.0 centre motor and a 36 volt 11Ah battery that gives up to 75 miles range. It's superbly well-equipped with Magura hydraulic brakes, front and rear lights, new illuminated handlebar controls, puncture-resistant tyres, integrated mudguards and suspension.
Providing an enormous 70Nm torque and working with the gear shifter to provide seamless transmission it's the most capable crank drive unit around. Kalkhoff have engineered a more powerful, efficient, quieter motor that supplies massive assistance from a standing start and cuts all hills down to size.
A genuine innovation this year - every time you change up or down a gear, power drops away for a matter of milliseconds for optimal gear shifting. This does a number of great things - it extends your gears mechanical lifetime, feels satisfyingly natural and makes for a smoother application of all that power. They had to invent a litte electromechanical gadget to detect gear changes that worked with the motor. They succeeded and the result brings a new feeling of confident power to riding a Kalkhoff electric bike.
Magura hydraulic brakes
It's been some years since Kalkhoff dropped cable-pull brakes on their most popular models. Magura's hydraulic piston design makes braking easy, well-modulated and reliable over time. There are no cables to stretch, the whole surface of the brake pad is applied to the rim (protecting both), pads last for ages and braking is strong and sure-footed. Looks cool too, with strong arch and neat braking assembly tucked against the forks.
Front and rear lights
Powered by a free-running Shimano hub dynamo, the lights on this and all Kalkhoffs are excellent. Few bikes on sale in the UK benefit from front and rear illumination of this quality and utility. The rear lamp behaves like a brake light, brightening when the bike's brain detects deceleration. Not only that, the rear lamp with remain lit for several minutes at standstill, for added visibility when waiting at lights or junctions.
The front lamp casts 30 lux of cool, bright LED light forward, enough to make night rides across the park something to enjoy rather than endure.
