Kalkhoff Sahel


This is the best compact e-bike ever made! Perfect for commuting, travelling, the boat, the caravan or city living.

The Kalkhoff Sahel Compact Impulse 8 is without doubt the best compact e-bike available, offering impressive agility on your way to work (or play! ) and performs exceptionally well through zig-zagging back street short-cuts or coastal paths. Its short wheelbase means it can be stored and transported in all sorts of tight spaces. It’s the lightest of the Impulse drive range at around 20. 5kg. The Schwalbe Big Ben tyres look the business and take the edges off rough terrain.

It’s powered by the new Impulse 2. 0 mid drive motor and a 36 volt 11. 5Ah battery that gives up to 150 kilometer range. The Sahel Compact is superbly well-equipped with Magura hydraulic brakes, 8 speed Shimano gear hub, brilliant front and rear lights, new illuminated handlebar controls, puncture-resistant tyres, integrated mudguards and handy kickstand.New higher capacity 612 Wh battery for up to 90 miles of riding per charge
