2015 Kalkhoff Sahel Compact Impulse 8

A small bike with a big personality. Nimble, quick and svelte for the urban jungle and the open road.bThe Kalkhoff Sahel Compact Impulse 8 is a fun, high quality compact electric bike that fits short and tall alike. It is designed to make life easier for city apartment dwellers, easily turn the handlebar, and 20" wheels to make it even more compact. Usually a bike with 20" wheels will ride very differently than a full size bike - not the Sahel - if you close your eyes (not a good idea) you wouldn't know that you are on a 20" bike. One size fits all - with adjustable seatpost and stem height to fit nearly everyone.

The bike is fun and responsive in one of three pedal assist settings. It delivers outstanding range, comfort and utility with integrated fenders, dynamo powered lights and a standard sized carry rack. The reinforced x-style downtubes give the bike a stiff and sturdy feel but let you mount and stand over easily and the hydraulic rim brakes are very capable for quick stops. With shift sensing technology that cuts the motor momentarily as you adjust pedal speed, powerful hydraulic rim brakes and a two year warranty, this is the kind of electric bike that could be a reliable commuter or touring ebike.
