Kalkhoff Durban Move G8 2018 Men's

Thanks to the Durban Move G8's simplified rear wheel-drive design, Kalkhoff have created a more affordable, yet still super reliable, electric bike for city riding.

Thanks to its less-is-more design, the Durban Move G8 Kalkhoff could be the perfect urban e-bike.

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

The Bike Itself

The bike itself looks and rides like a high quality hybrid bike - albeit with a 250 Watt motor to ease the strain of riding uphill and into headwinds.

  • Svelte aluminium alloy frame
  • Proven reliable Shimano Altus/SLX 1x8 Rapidfire gear shifting
  • Quality hydraulic disc brakes - why you want them
  • The bike comes fitted with full mudguards and a chainguard to help you stay clean
  • It also comes with a rear rack to carry panniers
  • Then it's fitted with a heavy duty kickstand for easy parking when there's nowhere convenient to lean the bike
  • The high quality front and rear LED lights are powered by the main battery (like a car's lights)
  • These lights are bolted onto the bike - the front at the fork crown and the rear on the back of the pannier rack - so you'll never be caught out without them
  • The adjustable stem makes it easier to achieve the most comfortable bar height
