Based on its sibling the Jubilee Advance, the Excite i8 is also powered by the Impulse 2.0 centre motor with either 36 volt 11Ah or 17Ah battery options. It's also superbly well-equipped with dynamo powered front and rear lights, multifunction LCD console, illuminated handlebar-mounted controls, puncture-resistant tyres, integrated mudguards and hydraulic Magura rim brakes. The added extra on this bike is the low maintenance and extremely quiet Gates carbon belt drive.
Providing an enormous 70Nm 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 7-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.
