The Include Premium i8 handles hills, tracks and trails just as well as cycle paths and busy city roads. Powered by the new Impulse Evo centre motor and a 36 volt 17Ah battery the bike has a range of up to 125 miles on a single charge. It's superbly well-equipped with hydraulic disc brakes, front and rear lights, multifunction LCD console, illuminated handlebar-mounted controls, puncture-resistant tyres, integrated mudguards and lockout suspension. The bike is available with either step-thru, trapezoid or traditional crossbar frame.
Providing an enormous 80Nm torque, Kalkhoff have engineered a more powerful, efficient, quieter motor that supplies massive assistance from a standing start and cuts all hills down to size. The 1100 charge cycle of the battery means it has 50% extra capacity and 120% extra lifespan compared the equivalent Bosch.
High-end Nexus 8-speed gears allows the rider to change gear with a simple twist of the gear shifter. You can change one gear at a time or shift from top to bottom (or vice versa) in one twist and unlike a derailleur, you can shift gear when the bike is stationary so no more setting off in too high a gear. Enclosing the gear mechanism inside a rear hub also makes for a more weather-resistant set-up.
Replacing the trusty bicycle chain is a carbon Gates Belt Drive which is stronger, quieter and requires less maintenance. It’s grease-free, oil-free and hassle-free, and will never rust. Unlike chains, there is no need for lubrication and on average they last 3 – 4 times longer than a conventional bike chain.
