Impulse 2.0

Innovative e-bike technology

A unique E-Bike system where all the frame, drive and chassis components were developed, coordinated and manufactured together to create the perfect package. Entirely in Germany and as if made from one piece. For the 2015 season, Kalkhoff produced an unprecedented level of comfort through the combination of the Impulse 2.0 drive and the Gates carbon belt, which gives optimal power transmission with hub gears.

The enhanced high-tech toothed belt has been specially adapted to suit the requirements of Kalkhoff, while the  motor system is equipped with shift-sensor technology for smooth shifting even under load. Together they achieve optimal performance and a completely new quality of ride. In addition to a considerably softer and more direct feel while you pedal, the toothed belt offers important advantages in handling and wear. The carbon belt is maintenance-free, which means no re-tensioning, especially after the bicycle has been run in. Nor do you have the bother of cleaning or oiling. Furthermore, it is a lot more durable, and you don’t have to worry about getting oil on your clothes.
