"Perfect Commuter Bike" - owner review from Coran in Cambridge, March 2014
This bike has really changed how I enjoy my commute. I owned an Ultramotor Hybrid 26 before and this bike is in a totally different league. Better in every possible way. Every design is just perfect for it's job. Every component, from the maintenance free Alfine hub, to the chain guard, the puncture proof tyres, the LED lights and even the bell! Extremely practical and all highly usable. The range on my Hybrid 26 was 25-30 miles (392wh battery), this bike, despite having only 50% more battery, got a whopping 75 miles on the first ride! And one of the best things is it rides just like a normal bike, thanks to the crank drive configuration. So if I run out of juice, it's no bother cycling with just my legs... Cannot praise this bike enough. You will not be disappointed. I consider it a bargain at this price too, considering the huge battery and top-end Alfine hub.
Kalkhoff have surpassed themselves with this year's Pro Connect. It's powered by the new Impulse 2.0 centre motor and a 36 volt 17Ah battery that gives up to 125 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 80 lux of cool, bright LED light forward, enough to make night rides across the park something to enjoy rather than endure.
