Product Details

2020 Kalkhoff Image 5.S Move (540Wh) E-Bike with Step Through Frame

This Kalkhoff Image 5.S Move features the Shimano Steps E6100 series, 36V / 250 W with a integrated 540Wh battery. The Shimano Steps drive system is arguably the smoothest drive system within e-bikes. 

Enclosing the battery inside the downtube creates such a normal-looking bike, there's a good chance that cyclists you overtake won't even realise you're riding with the assistance of an Shimano Steps motor.

Key Features

  • Svelte aluminium alloy frame
  • SR Suntour NEX E25 forks help smooth bumpy roads and tracks
  • The fork travel can be locked out for more efficient climbing
  • The wheels roll on durable, puncture resistant Schwalbe tyres
  • Shimano's simple yet effective Nexus 8 Speed internal hub gearing
  • Shimano MT200, hydraulic disc brake
  • The bike is fitted with full mudguards and chainguard to help you stay clean
  • Fitted with LED bike light, rack to carry panniers and it's also fitted with a heavy duty kickstand

Shimano Nexus 8 Speed

  • The Shimano Nexus 8-speed gear mechanism is enclosed in the rear hub so it requires less maintenance.
  • Its gear range is equivalent to an 11-38 cassette - i.e. low enough for steep hills.
  • Nexus allows you to shift gear when the bike is stationary. Just like you can in a car.
  • This is really useful if you have to stop at the bottom of a hill. No need to pedal off in too high a gear.

Shimano Drive System

Short or long distances, smooth roads or rough terrain? There is a suitable SHIMANO STEPS system for everything. All of them are designed in such a way that they run like a normal bike and can be easily configured to individual needs. 

  • Powerful, light engine weighing 2.88 kg, with optimum transmission for maximum range and a high degree of comfort
  • Slim, compact design and low energy consumption
  • Most riders find Centre Drive power assist feels more natural than a hub-drive system
  • With the motor low down at bottom bracket level at the bike's mid point, the bike feels better balanced than an e-bike with the motor on the front or rear hub
  • With its lower centre of gravity a Centre Drive e-bike feels more stable
  • Shimano SC-E6100, LCD Display

The Battery

Integrated Li-Ion 36V 15 Ah (540 Wh), You can get far - up to a maximum possible range of 180 km (at the lowest assistance level, under optimal conditions, with a fully charged battery in perfect condition and with the highest possible capacity.)


Easy-read backlit display with key info: battery level, power-assist mode, speed, daily and total mileage.
