What are Step Through Electric Bikes?
Effortless cycling and German practicality on these Kalkhoff step through e-bikes
Step through electric bikes are the pinnacle of practicality. Not only do you get to enjoy the effortless glee of using a pedal-assist motor, you can also step right onto both pedals without having to lift a leg over. They are ideal for men and women wearing business attire, skirts, kilts, or unfeasibly tight trousers. They’re also great for those who are recovering from injuries – or simply for those who like to make their lives easy.
