The Image 5.I Move is Kalkhoff's first step through bike with a fully integrated battery and adjustable handlebar stem unit with integrated cables It is the ideal model for those who want to enjoy all the benefits of an e-bike with a little bit more discretion.
The Image Move range is available with a choice of motors and two-tone paintwork, but for us the pick is the i8 with the powerful yet quiet Impulse Evo RS drive system. This produces 70Nm of torque and is powered by a 13Ah battery that fits perfectly into the design of the frame.
On closer inspection, the Image Move will impress you with it’s many excellent features; a new Smart Compact Display when combined with your phone acts as an on-board navigation system; a USB charging socket fitted as standard enables you to charge your phone while you’re on the move.
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.
There's also Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, front and rear lights, illuminated handlebar controls, puncture-resistant tyres, integrated mudguards and suspension. plus an adjustable handlebar stem with integrated cable routing.
