How did Kalkhoff create a simpler e-bike

  • Kalkhoff spec'ed the proven, reliable Groove Go rear wheel drive motor
  • Rear wheel drive is simpler and less costly than integrating the motor with the bottom bracket and chainset
  • Its 32Nm torque motor is less powerful than you'll find on more expensive Kalkhoffs but it's just fine for hilly cities
  • Its 252 Wh Li-ion battery has a maximum range of 45km per charge in the best conditions (probably around 20km in mixed conditions, but that's still sufficient run time for most urban cyclists)
  • Its smaller capacity makes the battery lighter weight (sub-2kg rather than the usual 3.5kg) and more compact so it can be fixed to the frame down tube
  • Instead of a control panel computer on the handlebar, the Durban Move makes do with an on/off button on the battery
  • Kalkhoff also save on weight and cost by equipping the Durban Move G8 with a rigid fork rather than suspension
  • In compliance with EU and UK law, this e-bike is a pedal bike with up to 250W power assist, which cuts out once you reach 25KPH (15.5 MPH)
  • This limiter doesn't prevent you going faster 'the old way' - by pedalling harder
